(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: ALREADY BY BEYONCE FT SHATTA WALE AND MAJOR LAZER

IG @ogefashblog

The song “Already”  is kind of similar to the song“Keys to the kingdom” by Beyonce ft Tiwa Savage and Mr. Eazi.

This song basically opens people’s eyes to the greatness embedded in them. The artistes assure people that they are born to glow, shine, take charge, rule and stay in control over everything. All they need do is keep thriving. The artistes also make people realize that while doing this, people may try to stop them but they shouldn’t succumb. They further say that people are the cure to whatever unpleasant situation around them and they should not allow other people or outside situations to dominate them or control their happiness

I am trying to understand Shatta Wale’s first four lines

“Try to stop it, me say no, no, no
Royalty say, don’t you know, know, know
Try to stop it, me say go, go, go, go
Bubble up and watch it grow, grow, grow, grow”

Try to stop what? His shine? Perhaps

Take a gander at the lyrics below!
