Music Monday

Welcome to another edition of Music Monday! This week I am bringing you guys a sound all the way from france! Well she actually lives in Canada right now but… Anyway, the artist is Zaho and the song is Kif’n’dir which translated means what should I do. I love the lyrical content of this song as well as the overall sound from Zaho’s voice to the production of the instrumental. I originally heard this song while watching Les Twins dance videos and fell in love with it. Hope you guys enjoy! (I hope the lyrics are all correct, you guys know things sometimes get lost in translation)

I muse at the airplanes through the window
Behind bars, me, who wants to escape
I never felt like submitting myself
‘To these beings with their worn-out ideas
I want (to be able) to see other mornings being born
Maybe the line in [the palm of] my hand will tell me
I must follow the searchlight, because my soul is [my] master
But I’m afraid to touch a wall (litt: the end) just a few metres away

And I don’t want to leave
Even if there is nothing that holds me back
I don’t want to suffer
I have taken a one-way charter[ticket]
Not to come back anymore

What should I do (repeats)

I wear this mask to look like the others
[disguised] as a failed boy, a girl not like the others (like the other girls)
I expect the worst and I endure
I’m fed up with pretending that I am strong
So I play corpse, so as not to die
I need to get out to close this Algerian chapter
Even if there is dust upon this theme
Know that I love you never the less

And I don’t want to leave
Even if there is nothing that holds me back
I don’t want to suffer
I have taken a one-way charter[ticket]
Not to come back anymore

What should I do (repeats)

Ouh ouh ouh ouh

What should I do (repeats)

Don’t cry, Algeria, I don’t sleep
Don’t cry, Algeria, I don’t sleep
Don’t cry, Algeria, I don’t sleep
Don’t cry, Algeria, I don’t sleep

 

Hope you guys enjoyed this weeks #MusicMonday make sure you check back next week for another new sound!
