“What does Girl #3 mean?” is usually the first question people tend to ask. “You sing?”, in a surprised tone, tends to be the second. Even though the title of the EP or maybe even the mere fact that I (SIS) am dropping one is a shock to most, it’s nothing compared to what listeners are in store for once they push play. After years of fear and contemplation, Girl #3 is finally on the brinks of release and it feels like the right time…finally.
You don’t have trust issues!
…Or maybe you do. Who knows? But before you wallow in the belief that the way you trust or distrust is a real issue, let’s try dissecting what the term “trust issues” actually means and how it’s used.
Trust, or the lack there of, begins affecting most of us at an early age. I can remember the moment where trust no longer seemed like such an easy concept. I was around 6 years old and I had asked a friend to hold the money my mom had given me. We were on our summer camp trip and I had no pockets. Surely, I could trust her with my soggy 10$ bill. We went our separate ways and when we met back on the bus at the end of the day, I learned that she had spent my money. Not some of it. All of it. She spent it on cotton candy, a Slurpee and a stuffed animal. I was as astonished as a 6-year-old could be.
At the top of the year, weeks maybe even days before, nobody could tell much of any of us that this was not our year. This was the year that we would put all of our dreams into action, the year we would be recognized for our talents. This was the year that all of our loose ends would be tied and everything would come around full circle.
The luxuries of being born with a vagina peak at the highest levels of greatness but all good things come with its share of downfalls. In more recent years, women have taken to social media to express their support for their female counterparts.
“I got the wave tonight!”
In three short phrases alone, SPZZy TURNT opens up with an intro that quickly reminds us where he hails from….Jersey.
But his birth place is not the topic of discussion in his upcoming project, “4Eva Turnt 2” dropping on April 5th. The intro, “Sacrifice” sets the tone of the entire body of work and illustrates his determination to ward off temptations and stay focused on the music.
If you are anything like me, you were already tuned into Cardi B’s boisterous videos before “Love and Hip Hop: New York” introduced her to the world on a greater scale.
“It’s cold outside but I’m still looking like a thottie because.. a hoe never gets cold”
became a well known Cardi proverb and was used as a legit excuse to wear sheer and/or above the mid-thigh dresses in the middle of winter…at least by me anyway.
Almost 18 years later, 2001’s second most requested song is still being played and still being chanted word for word whenever the opportunity grants itself. “What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone on the bedroom floor cause he’s hungry! and the only way to feed him is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money? And his daddys gone…..” With this type of influence, one would think that everything the unseasoned group hailing from Willingboro, NJ wanted was as easily attainable as they sang it to be in their following single “Brown eyes.”
“Cause everything I want I got it and everywhere I go I’m spotted..”
However, their story turned out a lot different than what most projected.
