Like the chorus but surely she would not be allowed to use a racist slur?!

I've just listened to the song and there's literally no way that sounds even remotely like the n-word. She says: "I've been looking so long for a guy to turn me on
I want a boyfriend, yeah, yeah
I want a boyfriend, yeah"


And you could have just googled it.

Wrong part... after those lines the next line is:

“I been looking like” then the bit I’m asking about which doesn’t actually come up on Apple Music’s lyrics section or online...

ie I’m asking about what said between “I been looking like...” and “...where you at, where you at?”

Yeah that’s what I mean, but if you listen she’s clearly saying something ...could it be censored because it’s a racial slur (which is what I think it sounds like - but I have no idea whether she’d say that or not)?

If you people actually listened to the song instead of saying "JuSt GoOgLe ThE lYrIcS" you would know there is a section where you can't tell what she's saying and doesn't appear on the linked lyrics lists.

OP it's just a remix of her making a noise imo. Only keeping a couple of phonetics, the rest is computerised.

Finally someone who actually read the post and knows you’ve gotta listen rather than google!

Thanks lol, does it not sound like she’s swearing using the n word tho - that’s the only bit of the song that I like but idk if she’s saying that I might stop listening...

I don't hear any racial slur, I think its just a random sound effect she's making. Sounds really similar to a large part of the song "Remember Me" by Blue Boy (1997).

But yeah, everyone saying "Just google it" clearly don't know the song, or don't understand what you we're asking.

here are the lyrics!

I've been looking for somebody
Tryna kick it with somebody
I need a rude boy to tell me something sweet
Same time got his hands up on my body
I wanna get high when he take it low-low
Let me feel strong when I'm taking control
I've been looking for my shawty
So come and get it if you got it
All my girls 'round the world, I know you know what I mean
I get a little sexy when I'm lonely
One thing on my mind, I know what I need
All my girls 'round the world, hands up and sing it with me
'Cause everything I got, you know it's all me
Even though a man ain't something I need
I want a boyfriend, so put it on me
I'm looking for a man who can take that heat
Want a boyfriend, but not too sweet
My baby gotta be tough while he running that street
Is he ride or die?
I've been looking so long for a guy to turn me on
I want a boyfriend, yeah, yeah
I want a boyfriend, yeah
I been looking like
Where you at, where you at?
Where you at, where you at?
Where you at, where you at?
Where you at, where you at?
I need you and me together
I ain't looking for forever
I had so much stress from my ex to the next
Want you better, love me better
I need a bad boy that don't bring me drama
He ain't tryna roll when he get the nah-nah
Boy you ready for the pleasure?
And don't you know it's now or never
All my girls 'round the world, I know you know what I mean
I get a little sexy when I'm lonely
One thing on my mind, I know what I need
All my girls 'round the world, hands up and sing it with me
'Cause everything I got, you know it's all me
Even though a man ain't something I need
I want a boyfriend, so put it on me
I'm looking for a man who can take that heat
Want a boyfriend, but not too sweet
My baby gotta be tough while he running that street
Is he ride or die?
I've been looking so long for a guy to turn me on
I want a boyfriend, yeah, yeah
I want a boyfriend, yeah
I been looking like
Where you at, where you at?
Where you at, where you at?
Where you at, where you at?
Where you at, where you at?
All my girls 'round the world, I know you know what I mean
I get a little sexy when I'm lonely
One thing on my mind, I know what I need
All my girls 'round the world, hands up and sing it with me
'Cause everything I got, you know it's all me
Even though a man ain't something I need
I want a boyfriend, so put it on me
I'm looking for a man who can take that heat
Want a boyfriend, but not too sweet
My baby gotta be tough while he running that street

I've been looking so long for a guy to turn me on
I want a boyfriend, yeah, yeah
I want a boyfriend, yeah

Where you at, where you at?

Nah it deada** sounds like she’s saying the N word, bruh this has been playing on my mind for so long, surely more people are noticing this?? It doesn’t say anything online?? Seems really weird to me... maybe a publicity stunt but not many of us really noticed?

sorry to be so obscene...but it kind of sounds like she is singing "die n****" over and over :/

it's probably "tryna get" knowing the context of the lyrics
