Motivation - Normani

The Experience: Why would we ever do somethin' instead of fallin' into the bed right now?... Sex.
The Vibe: Empowerment.
The Topic: Sex.
The Value: Intimacy.
The Tension: No tension here. Motivation offers sex and gets sex. But is that satisfying enough to last you?

Music video: A young Normani idolizes the life she'll have when she grows up, into the Motivation music video, as a sex symbol attracting, rejecting and using boys. But that never happens alone - there's no intimacy to be had. Just sex.

The Meaning of Motivation: You want attention. You want sex. Beneath all that is the human desire for relationship and intimacy. But Motivation sells you far short. The song celebrates demeaning yourself as a sex object and toy: breaking him off - pleasuring him - is the motivation you use - let me be your motivation - to get into his bed - why would we ever do somethin' instead of fallin' into the bed right now. Can that achieve anything else than a vicious cycle where lust gets sex gets lust? And will that cycle even minimally quench your thirst for love?

Ask yourself: Do you offer sex and settle for sex when what you really want is love?

LYRICS:


Imma break you off, let me be your motivation
To stay and give it tonight
And, baby, turn around, let me give you innovation
Hey, 'cause I do it so right

You got that good good, baby, don't you?
Got that good good, baby, don't you?
But you livin' solo
Ain't regular, that ain't regular
I ain't gon' keep, keep fightin' for it
Ain't gon' keep, keep fightin' for it
'Cause you know this thing here
Ain't regular, that ain't regular

Fallin' into the bed
Why would we ever do somethin' instead of
Fallin' into the bed right now?

Imma break you off, let me be your motivation
To stay and give it tonight
And baby, turn around, let me give you innovation
Hey, 'cause I do it so right

Think about it, oh, think about it
Think about it, oh, take a look at me now
Hey, a little motivation, alright

You got a bad one, baby, don't you?
Got a bad one, baby, don't you?
And we both know there's no
One better boy, no one better boy
Too late, won't make it, Imma tell 'em
Get you naked but I won't tell 'em
'Cause you know that there's no
One better boy, no one better boy

Fallin' into the bed
Why would we ever do somethin' instead of
Fallin' into the bed right now
(Eh, right now now)

Imma break you off, let me be your motivation
To stay and give it tonight (and give it tonight)
And baby, turn around, let me give you innovation
Hey, 'cause I do it so right

Think about it, oh, think about it
Think about it, oh, take a look at me now
Hey, a little motivation, alright

Hey
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
A little motivation (a little motivation)

Imma break you off, let me be your motivation
To stay and give it tonight
And baby, turn around, let me give you innovation
Hey, 'cause I do it so right

Think about it, oh, think about it
Think about it, oh, take a look at me now
Hey, a little motivation, alright

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
