'Brown skin girl'

Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
Never trade you for anybody else
Singin' brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin'...

She said she really grew up poor like me
Don't believe in nothin' but the almighty
Just a likkle jeans and a pure white tee
She never did forever be nobody wifey, yeah
So while I may not pretty boy, your heart is amiss
Play it like a villain 'cause she caught in a wave
Tonight I am walkin' away
9 to 5 mind, on the grind, yeah, yeah

Tonight I might fall in love, dependin' on how you hold me
I'm glad that I'm calmin' down, can't let no one come control me
Keep dancin' and call it love, she fightin' but fallin' slowly
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told me

Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
Your back against the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

Pose like a trophy when Naomis walk in
She need an Oscar for that pretty dark skin
Pretty like Lupita when the cameras close in
Drip broke the levee when my Kellys roll in
I think tonight she might braid her braids
Melanin too dark to throw her shade
She minds her business and wines her waist
Gold like 24k, okay

Tonight I might fall in love, dependin' on how you hold me
I'm glad that I'm calmin' down, can't let no one come control me
Keep dancin' and call it love, she fightin' but fallin' slowly
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told me

Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
Your back against the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

Oh, have you looked in the mirror lately? (Lately)
Wish you could trade eyes with me (Because)
There's complexities in complexion
But your skin, it glow like diamonds
Dig me like the earth, you be giving birth
Took everything in life, baby, know your worth
I love everything about you, from your nappy curls
To every single curve, your body natural
Same skin that was broken be the same skin takin' over
Most things out of focus, view
But when you're in the room, they notice you (Notice you)
'Cause you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful

Them men, them gon' fall in love with you and all of your glory
Your skin is not only dark, it shines and it tells your story
Keep dancin', they can't control you
They watchin', they all adore you
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told you

Brown skin girl (Brown skin girl), ya skin just like pearls (Brown skin girl)
Your back against the world (Oh)
I never trade you for anybody else, say (No, no)
Brown skin girl (Brown skin girl), ya skin just like pearls (Brown skin)
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin'...

Sobre Brown skin girl

  • Con la ayuda de Wizkid, SAINt JHN y su propia hija Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé utiliza "Brown skin girl" para decirles a las jóvenes "de piel marrón" que se sientan orgullosas de su piel y la abracen.

  • El tema es la cuarta "collab" entre Ivy y Beyoncé, y algunas de sus canciones son "Blue" y "Wake Up".

  • SAINt JHN es un rapero prometedor de Brooklyn, Nueva York.

  • Iggs fue cofundador de Roc-a-fella junto a Jay-Z y Damon Dash. Lo que significa que Biggs podría haber sido una gran ayuda para que JHN apareciera en este disco, teniendo en cuenta que Jay-Z y Beyoncé están casados.

  • JHN creció rebotando entre una vida pobre con su madre en Nueva York y una vida de matón en Georgetown, Guyana, con su padre. Lo que terminó causando que su propia música fuera versátil al traer el Afrobeat de Guyana y el Hip-Hop de Nueva York para dar forma a su propio estilo de música.

  • A finales de 2018, JHN podía ser visto a menudo merodeando por Kareem "Biggs" Burke, e incluso terminó trayendo a Biggs de vuelta a la industria de la música después de un paréntesis de 14 años, donde Biggs fundó su nuevo sello: Exclusivo con JHN como su primer fichaje.

  • Esta es la primera vez que JHN, Wizkid y Beyoncé trabajan juntos.
