Boo'd Up - Ella Mai




The Experience: Don't ever get over you until I find something new that get me high like you do... happy, until you aren't anymore. And then you'll move on...

Music video: Ella Mai and boyfriend and company at an amusement park. The fun is superficial and won't last the night... like relationships with nothing but feelings to hold them together.

The Meaning of Boo'd Up: The song explores the tension between feeling and thinking your way through a relationship. Feelings, so deep in my feelings: love is something that gets you high... and if something or someone gets you higher you should follow the feelings and move on - until I find something new that get me high like you do. Mind's telling me one thing: if love is a feeling, don't get too attached. The deeper issue? Boo'd Up assumes that every relationship will fail - until I find something new. That lack of commitment takes the meaning out of being in a relationship - boo'd up.

Ask yourself: If it's true that feelings and plans will fail, is there anything to base a lasting relationship on?

Album: Ready (2017)

LYRICS:


Feelings, so deep in my feelings
Notice they ain't really like me
Can't control my anxiety
Feeling, like I'm touching the ceiling
When I'm with you I can't breathe
Boy you do something to me

Ooh, don't ever get over you until I find something new
That get me high like you do
Ooh, don't ever get over you until I find something new
That get me high like you do

Listen my to heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, boo'd up
Hear my heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum it just won't stop, it go
Badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, boo'd up
Hear my heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, it just won't stop, it go

How many ways can I say that I need you baby, it's true
I think I might die without you
Feeling all over my body
You know how I like it
Ain't gotta tell you what to do

Ooh, don't ever get over you until I find something new
That get me high like you do
Ooh, don't ever get over you until I find something new
That get me high like you do

Listen my to heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, boo'd up
Hear my heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum it just won't stop, it go
Badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, boo'd up
Hear my heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, it just won't stop, it go

Head over heels in love
Riding funny, I ain't gotta look no more baby, hah
I wanna build this love
And everything you want, you ain't gotta ask for
You got me boo'd up, boo'd up
Boo'd up, boo'd up
Told you from the jump I'm the one that you took
Got me boo'd up, boo'd up
Boo'd up, boo'd up
Grab me by the waist baby, pull me closer

Ooh, don't ever get over you until I find something new
That get me high like you do
Ooh, don't ever get over you until I find something new
That get me high like you do

Listen my to heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, boo'd up
Hear my heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum it just won't stop, it go
Badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, boo'd up
Hear my heart go badum, boo'd up
Biddy-da-dum, it just won't stop, it go

This is such a crazy feeling though
I don't want to get too attached, but I feel like I already am
My mind's telling me one thing, but
I guess I should listen to my heart
Right?
