Kat Dahlia – The High

Kat Dahlia uses her voice as a weapon. It’s a voice that cuts sharp and deep, straight to the chambers of the heart. Like the beautiful variations of the flower genus her name represents, the Miami-born rapper-singer-songwriter is complex, intoxicating and unforgettable. There’s no one quite like Kat Dahlia, who has the sultry inflection of Nelly Furtado, the disposition of Rihanna, the flow of Santigold, the presence of Gwen Stefani and the majestically raw vocal prowess of Amy Winehouse and Adele. She is an artist of her own making. “There’s no other way to stand out than just being yourself,” she says. “I write my own music. People say my voice is very unique and I do this rappy thing that’s kind of different, but if you really want to break it down, I’m just being myself.” Born Katriana Huguet (and formerly known as Kat Hue), she’s the rare artist who will go into the studio and record nine songs in one day. Tell her she can’t do it; and she’ll prove the naysayers wrong. For years, she waited tables six days a week to save up enough money to independently fund studio sessions, a music video and an EP all on her own. That combination of hustle and infectious vocals is why music industry veteran Sylvia Rhone swiftly signed Kat to her Vested in Culture label with Epic Records the very first time she heard her demos. It’s easy to understand why Rhone didn’t want to let Kat Dahlia slip away. She’s a natural born storyteller whose material comes directly from the hard knocks that life has served her. “My songwriting is all stories. It’s influenced by a lot of blues, Elvis, and the Buena Vista Social Club, which are all made up of stories.” In her song “Tumbao,” for instance, Kat playfully questions the stereotype associated with being a Latina recording artist: “Sí, yo hablo Español / But, baby, I ain’t trying to fit that mold / I’ma keep my creative control / I’m just a South Beach girl with a lot of soul.”

Kat Dahlia – The High Lyrics:
(Verse)
You made your promises
I’ve held on believing in all of them
Love timeless – that’s what you said
So wise, your past coming before it’s revenge

(Pre-Chorus)
My arms, yea they’re reaching for stones
But they’re covered in scars
Oh baby you’re the bleeding of my heart
Yea, your touch left a mark
I’m no light, I’m no dark
Oh baby you’re the most important part

(Chorus)
Baby we fly so high
Feeling like we could live forever and we’re going straight for heaven
You and I
You say it’s alright
You wipe off the tears from my heart
You say you’re gonna love me better
For for now and for forever
You and I

(Verse)
You search for love in vain
I’m gon need every breath would it take

(Pre-Chorus)
My arms, yea they’re reaching for stones
But they’re covered in scars
Oh baby you’re the bleeding of my heart
Yea, your touch left a mark
I’m no light, I’m no dark
Oh baby you’re the most important part

(Chorus)
Baby we fly so high
Feeling like we could live forever and we’re going straight for heaven
You and I
You say it’s alright
You wipe off the tears from my heart
You say you’re gonna love me better
For for now and for forever
You and I

(Verse)
You left a stain
And now I wear it like I’m wearing my own name
Oh we’re the same
You throw your spite, I’ll take a bite
So who’s to blame
We’re back on the high

(Chorus)
Baby we fly so high
Feeling like we could live forever and we’re going straight for heaven
You and I
You say it’s alright
You wipe off the tears from my heart
You say you’re gonna love me better
For for now and for forever
It’s a lie
But it’s a lie

(Feeling like we could live forever and we’re going straight for heaven
You and I) (x4)
