Kali Uchis – Know What I Want

Kali Uchis – Know What I Want. Virginia-via-Colombia singer Kali Uchis finally releases audio for “Know What I Want” today, after dropping the video last month. Produced by Bunx​, the track is an extended version of the one in the video that’s been re-mixed and mastered. “Know What I Want” is resilient, and proves that Kali Uchis is really not the one to play with. “My music is auto-biographical and this is something I was going through at the time. At the end of the day, people only have as much control over you as you allow them to have, and I wanted to really exemplify that with this song,”

Uchis said over e-mail. “I wanted to express that I’m not confused; I am an evolving force moving in one determined direction, and whether or not you’re going to move forward with me is up to you, but I’m not slowing myself down for anyone.”

Uchis loves instrumental backdrops scavenged from the sweet sounds of the ’60s and ’70s — reggae, R&B and jazz. For “All Or Nothing,” she borrows from a Ralfi Pagan track, “I Can Never Hurt You.” Pagan recorded for New York’s Fania Records, a label famous for salsa records and Latin soul. Uchis’s vocals channel the tender pain of Billie Holiday over Pagan’s pleasant vibraphones and sugary doo-wop. “Music nowadays is all about having no feelings and being too cool,” Uchis tells Billboard. “I wanted to reference classic shit from times when people let themselves be raw and vulnerable.”

Kali Uchis – Know What I Want Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
They say one door open when another door close
I’m prayin’ that’s that way that it goes
Because right when I’m ’bout to turn the door knob
It seems it’s all locked up and the key decomposed
Remind me this the life that I chose
Go full speed, I can’t read, the signs that say stop
I burst it off and try to act all nonchalant
I notice everything, I just act like I don’t
Boy I know what I want

I know just what I want
Don’t tell me cause
[Verse 2]
You swear that you’re grown
It’s 5 in the morning
You won’t call, I’ll come home
I’m getting really tired of it
All up in my phone, Boy leave it alone
And I’m learning, Now I know
Should have left you’re ass in the friend zone
[Verse 1]
[Hook] x4
[Verse 2]
