Kanye West - Waves

Turn it up!

[Verse 1: Kanye West]
Step up in this bitch like (Turn it up!)
I'm the one your bitch like
Yeah I'm the one your bitch like (Turn it up!)
And I be talkin' shit like
I ain't scared to lose a fistfight (Turn it up!)
And she grabbin' on my, like
She wanna see if it'll fit right (Turn it up!)
That's just the wave

[Chorus: Chris Brown & Akon]
(Yeah) Waves don't die
Let me crash here for the moment, yeah
I don't need to own it
No lie
Waves don't die, baby
Let me crash here for a moment
Baby, I don't, I don't need to own you
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) (Turn it up!)

[Verse 2: Kanye West]
Sun don't shine in the shade, ugh (Turn it up!)
Bird can't fly in a cage, ugh (Turn me up!)
Even when somebody go away (Turn it up!)
The feelings don't really go away
That's just the wave

“Waves” is about Kanye’s relationships with loved ones. Waves never truly die; they flux and reflux, but are ever present. The track features Chris Brown and Kid Cudi. Chance the Rapper is credited with completing this song. When Kanye shared the tracklist’s first version of The Life Of Pablo (then called SWISH), “Waves” was originally part of it. The song was scrapped when Kanye revealed the final album title. After the Yeezy Season 3 presentation/album listening event in Madison Square Garden, the album release was delayed because Chance The Rapper insisted that “Waves" should be on the album. This led to Kanye making fun of the situation on Twitter while Chance shared that he was proud of his decision. Chance The Rapper also co-wrote Waves, there is a demo shared of the original version in Chance’s interview with Zane Lowe.
