Say So - Doja Cat

The Experience: Like it, love it, need it, bad,  take it, own it, steal it, fast... Obsessive seduction: the thrill of the hunt even when there's no love or even attraction in sight... 
The Vibe: Smug.
The Topic: Seduction.
The Value: Power.
The Tension:  I wouldn't f-ck him (Forget about a true relationship, I don't even want sex) VS. Take it, own it, steal it, fast (But I want the power trip of controlling his heart).

Music videoAmalaratna notices that the repair man is mildly interested in her. So she goes on the prowl until she seduces him into her corner.

The Meaning of Say So: She's not interested in him - I wouldn't f-ck him - but can't resist the power trip of fanning his attraction into much more. It's a smug song and she's smugly confident in her ability to make him want and do anything she wants. Above and beyond lust, attraction or sex, it's a song about the allure of power, of controlling others. And Doja Cat definitely feels allured.

Ask yourself: Do you use people? Or are you capable of caring about them?

Album: Hot Pink (2019)

LYRICS:


Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I'd let you had I known it, why don't you say so?
Didn't even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused. You want it? Say so
Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I'd let you had I known it, why don't you say so?
Didn't even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused. You want it? Say so

It's been a long time since you fell in love
You ain't coming out your shell, you ain't really been yourself
Tell me, what must I do to tell my love?
'Cause luckily I'm good at reading
I wouldn't f-ck him, but he won't stop chasin'
And we can dance all day around it
If you front, then I'll be bouncing
If you want it, scream it, shout it, babe
Before I leave you dry

Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I'd let you had I known it, why don't you say so?
Didn't even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused. You want it? Say so
Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I'd let you had I known it, why don't you say so?
Didn't even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused. You want it? Say so (Yeah)

Let me check my chest, my breath right quick (Ha)
He ain't never seen it in a dress like this (Ah)
He ain't never even been impressed like this
Prolly why I got him quiet on the set like zip
Like it, love it, need it, bad
Take it, own it, steal it, fast
Boy, stop playing, grab my -ss
Why you actin' like you shy?
Shut it, save it, keep it, push
Why you beating 'round the bush?
Knowing you want all this woman
Never knock it 'til you try (Yah, yah)
All of them b-tches hating I have you with me
All of my n-ggas saying you mad committed
Realer than anybody you had, and pretty
All of that body I need -ss and titties

Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I'd let you had I known it, why don't you say so?
Didn't even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused. You want it? Say so
Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I'd let you had I known it, why don't you say so?
Didn't even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused. You want it? Say so
