Song of the Day #4,664: ‘Blow’ – Beyoncé

While I won’t argue with anybody who names 2016’s Lemonade as Beyoncé’s masterpiece, I do feel respect must be paid to the icon’s 2013 self-titled album.

The daring and sexy Beyoncé was the artist’s first “visual album” and the first she dropped unannounced, two tactics she repeated with great success on Lemonade. In ‘XO,’ ‘Drunk in Love’ and ‘Flawless,’ the album offered up three tracks as iconic as anything on its follow-up.

Beyoncé is best experienced in its full visual splendor. Take today’s track, ‘Blow,’ an ode to a certain intimate act (but not the one the title would suggest). It’s a fun song, but one made all the more enjoyable by the neon skating rink aesthetic of its video.

[Intro]
I love your face
You love the taste
That sugar babe, it melts away

[Verse 1]
I kiss you and you lick your lips, I kiss you and you lick your lips
You like it wet and so do I, You like it wet and so do I
I know you never waste a drip, I know you never waste a drip
I wonder how it feels sometimes
Must be good to you

[Pre-Chorus]
Keep me coming, keep me going, keep me coming, keep me going
Keep me humming, keep me moaning, keep me humming, keep me moaning
Don’t stop loving ’til the morning, don’t stop loving ’til the morning
Don’t stop screaming, freaking, blowing

[Chorus]
Can you eat my skittles?
It’s the sweetest in the middle (Yeah)
Pink is the flavor
Solve the riddle (Yeah)
I’m-a lean back
Don’t worry, it’s nothing major
Make sure you clean that
It’s the only way to get the
Flavor

[Verse 2]
When you’re thirsty and need love
I give it up ’til I’m empty babe
Must be good to you
If you’re lonely in your bed, fill it up to the top
Must be good to you

[Pre-Chorus]
Keep me coming, keep me going, keep me coming, keep me going
Keep me humming, keep me moaning, keep me humming, keep me moaning
Don’t stop loving ’til the morning, don’t stop loving ’til the morning
Don’t stop screaming, freaking, blowing

[Chorus]
Can you eat my skittles?
It’s the sweetest in the middle (yeah)
Pink is the flavor
Solve the riddle (yeah)
I’m-a lean back
Don’t worry, it’s nothing major
Make sure you clean that
It’s the only way to get the
Flavor

[Interlude]
I’m about to get into this, girls
This is for all the grown women out there

[Bridge]
I can’t wait ’til I get home so you can tear that cherry out
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I can’t wait ’til I get home so you can tear that cherry out
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I want you to
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I want you to
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I want you to
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I want you to
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out

[Verse 3]
Ooh, I’ve had a naughty thought today, baby
Every time I close my eyes
Ooh, get a glimpse of this candy paint
Don’t slip off when it drip off on top of your ride
When you see it here, lift it up then toss it babe
I know everything you want
I’m-a show you how I stroke (stroke it)
Bring ya work home on top of me
I’m-a let you be the, be the boss of me
I know everything you want
Give me that daddy long stroke

[Bridge]
I can’t wait ’til I get home so you can tear that cherry out
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I can’t wait ’til I get home so you can tear that cherry out
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I want you to
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I want you to
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I want you to
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out
I want you to
Turn that cherry out, turn that cherry out

[Break]
Je ne sais quoi
Cherie, m vle w
Awsè a se nèt al kole !

[Pre-Chorus]
Keep me coming, keep me going, keep me coming, keep me going
Keep me humming, keep me moaning, keep me humming, keep me moaning
Don’t stop loving ’til the morning, don’t stop loving ’til the morning
Don’t stop screaming, freaking, blowing

[Chorus]
Can you eat my skittles?
It’s the sweetest in the middle (yeah)
Pink is the flavor
Solve the riddle (yeah)
