Mary J. Blige – Love Yourself (Remix) (feat. A$AP Rocky)


Dark clouds are movin’ past you
Through the fire and valley lows
You gotta love yourself
Before a love like this, you go
[Verse 2: A$AP Rocky]
You gotta stay open, and don’t be foolish
Just made it to my dinner date, bow your head, say your grace
Oh, oh, and it hurts
Marmalade, niggas toast, andalé, I’m finna ghost
Can’t get restless in my soul
But if you just hold on
But I’ll make it work
If you really wanna be with someone else

Before you love somebody else
‘Cause everybody don’t mean you well
You deserve it, can’t nothin’ else hurt you

Told you boys it wasn’t safe, give me peace, give me space
Blige] [Chorus: Mary J.

Oh, you gotta love yourself, oh yeah
Said I’ve been and up and down and I’ve been through it all
But I knew somethin’ they didn’t know
Keep singin’, don’t you stop prayin’, woman
Thought they’d put my life on hold
Murder for hire, I require finer taste
Blige] [Chorus: Mary J.
But I knew somethin’ they didn’t know
Oh, please hold on, it’ll save ya, save ya
Never mention competition, I just go annihilate
Oh, you gotta love yourself, oh yeah
I made it here with love, love
Please hold on ’cause love is strong, it’ll save ya
It can mess up everything
Before you feed somebody else
‘Cause everybody don’t mean you well
Look my savior in his face
Blige] [Refrain: Mary J.
You gotta stay open, and don’t be foolish
It’s been a long ride, but I made it here with love
[Chorus: Mary J. Blige]
You gotta feed yourself

Before you feed somebody else
You gotta stay open, and don’t be foolish
If you really wanna be with someone else
Somebody else
You gotta feed yourself
Anyways, goodness sakes, her first mistake Oh my days!
‘Cause everybody don’t mean you well
Don’t worry ’bout nothin’

Blige] [Verse 1: Mary J.

Blige] [Verse 3: Mary J.
By the way, did I mention all the thots up in my mentions
Blige] [Intro: Mary J.
Oh, yes, it has, yeah
Thought they’d put my life on hold
It’s the only way you know
You gotta love yourself
Yeah, it will come to pass
Bigger business raising stakes, charging with a higher rate
If you really wanna be with someone else
At the very least, at least just give me peace of mind to think

You gotta love yourself
Before you love somebody else
Before you feed somebody else
Dark clouds, I’m movin’ past you
Took a while to know my heart
I’m a winner, paid dues, I know my purpose
Truth can be the sweetest pain
[Refrain: Mary J. Blige]
Do a lot to gain attention? But I’m sure they’ll find a way
God knows that you’re worth it
I know myself too much to ever fold
I’m payin’ for it, I’m changin’ for it
I don’t feel no ways tired
Roll a J, Mary Jane, actually that’s Mary J
Gunning hundred miles per hour, catch you by the interstate

You gotta love yourself
Light the stage, setting fire to the whole Empire State
Bought a Wraith and a ghost, parked it where my mama stay
I’m fornicating with some twins like Ashley and Mary-Kate
‘Cause I’m no beginner
Before you love somebody else
I know myself too much to ever fold
Oh, you gotta love yourself
Riding like I’m missing brakes, temporary rented plates
You gotta feed yourself
You gotta love yourself
Hold your heart, the world is cold
