(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: PRESS BY CARDI B “AS IN, CARDI B WOULD BE SO PERFECT FOR ONE WICKED ANIMATED SUPER VILLAIN. SHE WOULD FIT IN FOR THIS CARTOON CHARACTER…”

@ogefashblog

My hands have actually been itching to write about this song, I don’t know why; must be because of the energetic performance displayed by Cardi B all through the song, or better still, it must be because Ogefash still needs more “press” for now#Winks

So, the song “press” by Cardi B is quite dicey. It is still uncertain if she is talking about the “press” that means media or “press” that means to be fondled with or “press” that menas to be pushed into doing something you don’t wanna do. However,  listening to this song countlessly, I feel it may be the latter, so calm down like Taylor sang in a song, (you) press

Take a gander at the lyrics below before the main review.

LYRICS TO THE SONG PRESS BY CARDI B

 INTRO

Woo, yeah
Bitches be pressed (woo)
Bitches be pressed (pressed)
Woo, yeah, yeah, woo

VERSE 1

Bitches be pressed (Pressed)
They knew how I’m coming, real bitch in the flesh (Woo)
Who the fuck she gonna check? (Who?)
She be talking that shit, talking out of her neck (Brrr)
Put blood on her dress (woo)
Bitches be mad when they see Cardi step in the spot (Woo)

Amma pull up on bitches as soon as I drop
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, I might copy ya(Skrrr)
Bitches in my business, they tryna ply (Woo)
Hoes popping shit like they hot but they not (No)
Just flooded the wrist, the Patek, the watch (Woo)
Niggas be flexing, we know what you got
Cardi the hacker the game in a knot
Fucking your nigga, I got him on lock
This go bang bang like I’m chopping them chops
VVS chain, I’m in love with the watch (Wow)
You said you gonna take it, bitch, you got me chopped (Woo)
They throwing shade ’cause they see me on top
Tell that bitch to pull up, amma send you the drop

CHORUS

Press, press, press, press, press
Cardi don’t need more press
Kill ’em all, put them hoes to rest
Walk in, bulletproof vest
Please tell me who she gonna check
Murder scene, Cardi made a mess
Pop up, guess who, bitch?
Pop up, guess who, bitch?

VERSE 2

Ding dong
Must be that whip that I ordered (Ordered)
And a new crib for my daughter (Daughter)
You know a bad bitch gonna spoil her
Got one in New York, need one in Georgia (Yeah)
New Bentley truck cost a quarter (Quarter)
My money still long like weave (Woo)
Pussy still wet like Florida (Woo)
Everyone drop on the floor (Floor)
She was talking but not anymore (No)
Mac to your face like contour (Brrr)
This chopper come straight from Dior
Done with the talking, I’m open to violence
Ask anybody, they know I’m about it
Hashtag whip that hoe ass
Fuck around, we gonna start a new challenge
I come in this bitch and I’m strapped up and ready (Voom)
Riding that dick like I’m Cardi Andretti (Meow)
Fuck at your crib, we don’t go to no ‘telly
I sit on his face whenever I’m ready (Woo)

Got the biggest house on my street (My street)
All you little hoes look cheap (Look cheap)
They sucking on my dick with no teeth

CHORUS

Kill ’em all, put them hoes to rest (Woo)

OUTRO

Press, press, press, press, press
Press, press, press, press, press
Pop up, guess who, bitch? (Yeah)
Pop up, guess who, bitch? (Cardi)

DURATION: 3 MINUTES 31 SECONDS

THE REVIEW

Hmm! So, was that opening scene really necessary?

Anyway, the song “press” is “attention -driven”; the title and visual was basically to draw attention, which the artiste- Cardi B, achieved in doing.

If you ask me, I don’t think the song has anything to do with the press as in “media,” although the video makes it look like she was talking about the media as she was surrounded by lots of cameras. From the lyrics, it seems like Cardi B was talking about being violent with those sticking their nose into her business and those trying to push her into doing what she doesn’t want to do.

As a matter of fact, Cardi B is in the best position to really explain what she means by the song “Press.” If given just 2 minutes 31 seconds with her, amma grab all the meanings of each line.

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses. The verse 1 has 20 lines while verse 2 has 24 lines. The chorus was sung twice. Then the chorus seems to have a different theme from the verses. Also, the artiste picked a very catchy phrase”Press” as title of the track. However, the title “Press” may in the real sense not have anything to do with the “Media” like people’s general notions. After carefully listening to the song, I am of the opinion that the song was targeted at some bitches envying her as well as those pushing her to go against her will; perhaps the reason she bragged about her expensive acquisitions so they can know that with or without them, she is still triumphing.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the verse 1 “Bitches be pressed (pressed). They knew how I’m coming, real bitch in the flesh (Woo)” Cardi B talks about sex, her copycats (This she sang in this line “Bitches in my business, they tryna ply (Woo)), expensive acquisitions (VVS chain, Patek Wrist watch.)  and those hating on her. She says those envying her, those sticking their nose into her business as well as those pushing her to go against her will are now feeling uncomfortable because they know she is coming to deal with them. As in, she would be violent with them. This she sang in the line “Put blood on her dress (Woo)”

In the chorus “Press, press, press, press, press, Cardi don’t need more press” the artiste expresses her frustration on the issue of being pressed and states unwillingness to no longer tolerate any more “push” from people to do something she doesn’t want to. She even says she would create a violent scene if they dare to and she would walk away unscathed (Remember the line where she said she was wearing a bullet proof vest) while the reverse would be the case for them; they would come out crippled or dead like we saw in the visual.

In the verse 2 “Ding dong! Must be that whip that I ordered (Ordered)” the artiste again talks about her expensive acquisitions such as Bentley truck, chopper from  Dior, Mac Cosmetics, big houses for her daughter Kulture and another for herself.

She also talks about her readiness to drop anyone that is bitchy around her. We can tel l that Cardi B is done talking. She has fastened her belt and is ready to be violent. View it in the below line

“Done with the talking, I’m open to violence. Ask anybody, they know I’m about it
Hashtag whip that hoe ass. Fuck around, we gonna start a new challenge
I come in this bitch and I’m strapped up and ready (Voom)”

WHAT DOES THE SONG “PRESS” BY CARDI B MEAN

There are different definitions for the word press. “Press” as in media; “press” as in to be pushed against one’s will ; “press” as in when someone touches your body; “press” as in to be pressurized.

Whichever the artist may mean, the message of the song however centers on violently dealing with anyone that is bitchy and tries to mess around with her like she did in the video. Remember, she has also ordered for that whip!

LOCATION

The video was shot in America. They used both indoor and outdoor scenes.

COSTUME

There was so much nudity irrespective of the fact that they were on a costume that made them look naked.

That reminds, I love the attires those ladies on the typewriter wore in the court; so girly.

JUST WONDERING

This protesters got me thinking though

 

SOUND

The song “press” lasted for about 3 minutes 31 seconds but the real song did not start until after 60 seconds of a short drama, Cardi came in with her vocals. Her vocal was strong, confident, energetic and convinving. She sang expressively to the lyrics. I can feel the flow of rhythm in the song. The major instruments used in the song include the drums, piano and guitar and they made the song interesting to the ears

VIDEO PRODUCTION

I really do not know what to make of this video. Does it have a message? May be! Maybe not!  The video is just a way of encouraging violence. Why did she murder the protesters? Why did she murder all those in the court?

Cardi B the “spree killer” is found guilty of murder and she goes about killing people like chicken.  So who is the real guilty one?

But away from the video story-line, this video is what I call great cinematography! I also love her energetic performance; splendid.

I feel Cardi B would be so perfect for one wicked animated super villain. She would fit in for a cartoon character like, hmm, may be “Scar” from the lion king or “Jafar” from Aladin. What wicked cartoon character would yours be for her?

@ogefashblog

I totally love this song. This song has certainly got what it takes to have massive airplay for years; perhaps that is why it is played everywhere all over world. As in, if I tell you how often it is played in my country, then you go know say “over popular” dey worry this song.

Take a gander at the lyrics to the song below

LYRICS TO “I DON’T CARE” BY ED SHEERAN AND JUSTIN BIEBER

VERSE 1 (ED SHEERAN)

I’m at a party I don’t wanna be at
And I don’t ever wear a suit and tie
Wondering if I could sneak out the back
Nobody’s even looking me in my eyes
Then you take my hand
Finish my drink, say, “Shall we dance?” Hell, yeah
You know I love you, did I ever tell you?
You make it better like that

PRE- CHORUS

Don’t think I fit in at this party
Everyone’s got so much to say, yeah
I always feel like I’m nobody, hmm
Who wants to fit in anyway

CHORUS

‘Cause I don’t care when I’m with my baby, yeah
All the bad things disappear
And you’re making me feel like maybe I am somebody
I can deal with the bad nights, when I’m with my baby, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
‘Cause I don’t care, as long as you just hold me near
You can take me anywhere
And you’re making me feel like I’m loved by somebody
I can deal with the bad nights, when I’m with my baby, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

 

VERSE 2 (JUSTIN BIEBER)

We at a party we don’t wanna be at
Tryna talk, but we can’t hear ourselves
Close your lips, I’d rather kiss them right back
With all these people all around
I’m crippled with anxiety
But I’m told it’s where I’m supposed to be
You know what? It’s kinda crazy ’cause I really don’t mind
And you make it better like that.

PRE CHORUS

Don’t think we fit in at this party
Everyone’s got so much to say, oh yeah, yeah
When we walked in, I said I’m sorry, hmm
But now I think that we should stay

CHORUS

‘Cause I don’t care when I’m with my baby, yeah
All the bad things disappear                                                                                                          You’re making me feel like maybe I am somebody
I can deal with the bad nights when I’m with my baby, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (oh yeah, yeah, yeah)
‘Cause I don’t care as long as you just hold me near
You can take me anywhere
And you’re making me feel like I’m loved by somebody
I can deal with the bad nights when I’m with my baby, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (no oh oh oh oh oh oh)

 

 

BRIDGE

I don’t like nobody but you
It’s like you’re the only one here
I don’t like nobody but you
Baby, I don’t care
I don’t like nobody but you
I hate everyone here
I don’t like nobody but you
Baby, yeah

CHORUS/OUTRO

‘Cause I don’t care (don’t care) when I’m with my baby, yeah (oh yeah)
All the bad things disappear (disappear)
And you’re making me feel like maybe I am somebody (maybe I’m somebody)
I can deal with the bad nights (with the bad nights)
When I’m with my baby, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (oh oh oh oh yeah, yeah, yeah)
‘Cause I don’t care as long as you just hold me near (me near)
You can take me anywhere (anywhere, anywhere)
And you’re making me feel like I’m loved by somebody (I’m loved by somebody)
I can deal with the bad nights (yeah, yeah, yeah)
When I’m with my baby, yeah (oh oh oh oh oh)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

THE REVIEW

These kind of heart-warming lyrics always get ladies tripping; dope song.!

Lyrically,  this masterpiece tune comes in two verses. Ed Sheeran took the first verse while Justin Bieber took the second verse. The two verses have the same stanzas (8). Although Edsheeran in his verse made use of the first person singular pronoun  “I” while Justin Bieber made use of the first person plural pronoun “We”. The chorus was sung thrice, the pre-chorus twice and the bridge once.

The lyrics are in array and they are interesting to the  ears. The song is meaningful as it talks about the artistes ability to fight insecurity and restlessness anytime they are with their loved ones.

The song arrangement: Verse 1- Pre chorus- chorus- Verse 2- Pre chorus- chorus- Bridge- Chorus/Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1 “I’m at a party I don’t wanna be at, and I don’t even wear a suit and tie” Ed Sheeran makes us see his disinterest in a particular party because he feels out of place among the people at the party. This he sang in this line “I’m at a party I don’t wanna be at. And I don’t ever wear a suit and tie.” The artiste feels he is so invisible to others because of his appearance. Just when he is thinking of secretly leaving the party, a lady shows interest in him which eventually lightens his mood and makes him stay back at the party.

In the Pre-chorus “Don’t think I fit in at this party” the artiste feels uncomfortable at the party, perhaps he is not used to that kind of setting. He however wants to fit in.

In the chorus, “‘Cause I don’t care when I’m with my baby, yeah,” we can tell that the artistes are more comfortable, calm and are able to overcome their lack of confidence whenever their girlfriends are with them. The artistes also make us know that their girlfriends make them feel important.

In the verse 2 “We at a party we don’t wanna be at. Tryna talk, but we can’t hear ourselves,” we can tell that Justin Bieber also reluctantly went for the party. He is probably overwhelmed by the large crowd and this makes him uneasy. But he is able to loosen up because of his lady.

In the bridge “I don’t like nobody but you” the artistes make it clear that they are fond of their girlfriends and no one else.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “DON’T CARE” BY ED SHEERAN AND JUSTIN BIEBER MEAN

This is a love song whereby the artistes are able to deal with their restlessness and lack of confidence  whenever their girlfriends are around them.

COSUME

Costumely!

LOCATION

The video was shot in America. They used both indoor and outdoor scenes.

SOUND

Melodious. The major instruments used include the drums, paino, guitar and shakers. It has an hip hop beat. I love their vocals;  very appealing and interesting to the ears.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

The question I keep asking is “Is this the real video for this dope song?” Cause if it is, I really expected more. Sorry, but this particular video is so uninteresting. They really should have gotten another video concept for this song! The fact that there are lots of animation, digital effects or computer effects does not qualify a video as an interesting one. This is an “Eyes rolling” video. Infact, Istill prefer the video for “Cross me” to this one. This is one video you may not be pushed to watch again.
