Lyrics

One – KOVAS

Verse 1:

Parlez vous Francais? I’m a nuisance. 

Tell me what you need in the true sense. 

Been worldwide since a niño. 

Barcelona, on the terrace sipping vino. 

In Chalet with my lady. Vacation where my grandma stay. 

A late pass for these half asses. 

My God Mom, Maripol, taught me how to ball. 

In the book with DiNiro’s daughter.  

Cast a spell like I’m Harry Potter. 

Everybody trying to play catch up. 

Looking my catalogue saying that’s what’s up. 

Been trill. Been ill. But still, rage against the machine. 

So machine I build. How can I word this? 

Simply trying to Zuckerberg this. 

Billionaire Facebook it. Flip the game. 

Turn it upside down and shook it.

Chorus:

More atoms in my eye then stars in the sky. 

More ice on the wrist. Make money hand over fist.

More atoms in my eye then stars in the sky. 

More ice on the wrist. Make money hand over fist.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

Verse 2:

Pocket full of horses. Stay with a smoke show.

She want to drive stick like a Volvo.

Ease off the clutch. She tempted to touch.

Ohh, Ohh. She love me too much.

Call me Copernicus. Study your heavenly body. 

You loving this. Oh damn, I went ham with the program.

Started to use both hands. Touch her like magic. Shazam.

David Blaine with your heart stings, or Houdini with your bikini believe me.

In a Lamborghini sipping martinis like Mussolini 

with two bitches that look like “I Dream Of Jeannie”

Now she hot and steamy everytime she see me.

She say she want it raw like Sashimi.

Holler “Hell Nah”, you trying to keep me.

So I bag it up everytime we’re freaky.

Chorus:

More atoms in my eye then stars in the sky. 

More ice on the wrist. Make money hand over fist.

More atoms in my eye then stars in the sky. 

More ice on the wrist. Make money hand over fist.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

Bridge:

Clock ticking. 

The water dripping. 

Better get it.

Clock ticking. 

The water dripping. 

Better get it.

Clock ticking. 

The water dripping. 

Better get it.

Clock ticking. 

The water dripping. 

Better get it.

Clock ticking. 

The water dripping. 

Better get it.

Clock ticking. 

The water dripping. 

Better get it.

Clock ticking. 

The water dripping. 

Better get it.

Clock ticking. 

The water dripping. 

Better get it.

Chorus:

More atoms in my eye then stars in the sky. 

More ice on the wrist. Make money hand over fist.

More atoms in my eye then stars in the sky. 

More ice on the wrist. Make money hand over fist.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

Out of many there was one. One.

“Lately, emcee/producer Kovas has been mighty scarce around these parts. (His last feature was spring 2012’s Deed It Main.) What has he been up to in the interim? Sadly, it seems he’s spent much of that time being strung along and jerked around by a certain manipulative shawty. On his latest single, making its world premiereright here on our front page, the Brooklynite warns men everywhere that the girl in question is a User who’s all too willing to break a guy’s heart after she’s taken advantage of his finances. In addition to delivering flowed bars and producing the record’s club-friendly beat, Kovas showcases his abilities as a singer on the front. Debut album KOVAS Hollywood is slated to drop, accompanied by a “music motion picture” of the same name, on September 9. In the meantime, of course, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest song releases.” (via DJBooth.net)

That time Kanye posted my song on his blog

 

 

A feeling of euphoria rushed over me. It was the same feeling I had felt when I first heard my song played on the radio for the first time, or when I heard the song I produced in my bedroom blared out the speakers in a sold-out stadium in Paris and seeing all the people bounce in unison.

It’s intoxicating and addictive. Fame, in it’s extremes, has been known to crumble many a human. If one develops an insatiable thirst for validation and recognition, it can lead to a life of heartbreak and emptiness. So I tread carefully. Trying not to let the ego swell too much. God knows I’ve met some who have accomplished way less but have an ego the size of Goodyear blimps. hahaha.

I was once told, there’s a difference between confidence and cockiness. One is like an alluring fragrance that tickles the nose and stays embedded in the brain long after the scent has left and the other is a cheap $5 knock off that induces coughing and gagging in close quarters. One comes from having a strong self belief and drive and the other comes from deep seated insecurity and neediness. So I always try to shoot for the former, than the latter.

Sometimes I do feel I don’t toot my own horn enough……. I’m a let you finish, but your boy KOVAS has done a lot of shit! hahaha. What I’m most proud of is that I built this with the help of my fans and supporters of my music. No big corporation, no crazy connected publicist & management team. Ma, look how far we’ve come, super indie, super D.I.Y. My music has been in Oscar nominated films (Captain Phillips) and I scored music for MTV VMA winning music videos(Taylor Swift “I Knew You Were Trouble”).

If any of this can help inspire you, I hope it gives you the courage to go after your dreams no matter the odds. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Step by step, brick by brick. Those that have witnessed and supported me on this journey from the beginning, I thank you and know we are just getting started. For those just getting into my music, good to meet you and we got a lot of catching up to do! Join The Rebellion, there’s no boundaries, there’s no limits. – KOVAS aka Kovito
