#SongLyricSunday | Girls Like – Tinie Tempah ft. Zara Larsson

I’m totally switching it up this week to keep everyone on their toes. 😀 #SLS is a weekly music challenge hosted by Jim at A Unique Title For Me. Make sure to click on the theme link below to check out all of the songs for today!

This week’s theme is: North|South|East|West

My song choice is for South and West, bringing you yet another catchy hit from my favorite British rapper, Tinie Tempah that features new-to-me Swedish singer, Zara Larsson. The video for this song just gets me, lol. I don’t know which part I love the most, the girl using the toilet or the dude with a burlap bag over his head, but it’s definitely random enough to make up for the booty dancing (I might be a little jealous of that skill) lol. I’ve included both the official video and because I was curious what Zara Larsson looked like, a live performance video, which is just as good! I’m going to have to check out more of her songs.

Fun Facts via Wikipedia:

  • “Girls Like” was released in 2016 as the second single off of Tinie Tempah‘s album, Youth, and peaked at #5 on the UK Singles Chart.
  • Zara Larsson doesn’t appear in the video, but she has performed the song live with T.T. on several occasions, including at the 2016 Summertime Ball in London (Video below).
  • Despite never reaching #1 on any charts, “Girls Like” is certified 3x Platinum in Sweden, 2x Platinum in the UK, Platinum in Norway, Denmark, & Australia, and Gold in Italy, New Zealand, Germany & Belgium.
  • The video was filmed in a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa named Woodstock.

All the girls like
Said I was the man
All I ever needed was a plan
Tell J.K that we still rolling
Yeah, tell Russell I’m a brand
Yeah, bust that skank
Ain’t nobody messing with the gang
Might take a fly out for the weekend
And go can cause I can
Go low, go low, everybody get low
Had a couple hits and a couple solos
Now I got a couple rents and a couple more boats
Jump parkside, everybody loco
I was jumping off the mandem with a polo
Now I’m with a mandem at the polo
I could make a honey give away her last rolo
Then I say sure, yo, you know how it goes
All the girls like

I know what boys like
I know what they want
They want that good thing
They wanna get some
(All the girls like)
I know what boys like
I know what they want
So go ahead and prove me right

Yeah, rollie on the wrist, that’s me, me
Man of the year I’m fleek
Had a couple man wanna be me
Them man can’t be T.T
Tell ’em only winners are allowed
No diggiy-dee, no diggiy-doubt
I was getting blowed but few girls were putting out
Told them I was gonna blow back when I was in the south
Go low, go low, everybody go low
Since she want me she don’t want the coco
So I made her send it back less she want my loco
And I got American, got a Volvo
Used to have a black my piece of Roco
Now everyone I go people want a photo
I could make a honey give away her last rolo
Then I say sure, yo, you know how I roll

    I had to read the lyrics THREE times to get the gist of what’s happening. LMAO! Oh yeah, my age is showing! 😀

    Good beat and original video. Didn’t know Capetown was a big party! LOL!
