Lorine Chia – Eve’s Perspective

Born in Banso, Cameroon, Lorine Chia was destined to perform. Releasing her first mixtape entitled Lorine on Thanksgiving in 2012, the Ohio native received praise and attention from Complex Magazine, France’s OFive TV, Live Mixtapes, Mercedes-Benz and more, thanks to her futuristic, airy production and soulfully distinct voice. Now as Lorine focuses on her future, let’s dig into her past. Named after Lorine Okotie, her father’s favorite African songstress, the first generation immigrant moved around the east coast with her family, stopping in several cities before settling in Willoughby, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. At six years old, her parents flung her in front of their church’s audience to sing an African spiritual and to her own surprise, Lorine not only sang well but she loved the experience. As the years carried on, she matured into a good student and reunited with her musical leanings by joining her elementary school’s band. But after playing the trombone and violin and later singing in the school choir in the ninth grade, she tired of instruments and musical group activities. Then in the tenth grade, she accidentally rediscovered her talent for singing through a school project.

Lorine Chia – Eve’s Perspective

Lorine Chia – Eve’s Perspective Lyrics:
Yeah guess someone know it all
I think that what they teaching it’s always false
But maybe that’s because my paranoia
…would this be over? Well this will be the over?
Right back to the …things
They’re happy cuz they don’t know a thing
And the …they don’t wanna change
They feel like wildest it’s the only way
It’s not the only way it is
Don’t need the fruit right from the tree
Look what it has done to me
So many years living in fear, just cu I know everything
And then they coming from me…
I eat the fruit cuz I was curious…to taste and know I know too much
I know too much, baby I’m so aware
Is this way not I’m not dare
But know I know too much and live in fear
Then the …is the power so what’s the deal so I got …
Don’t need the fruit right from the tree
Look what it has done to me
So many years living in fear, just cu I know everything
Maybe I know too much or maybe I don’t even know enough
But what this whole case of paranoia
It’s what I give from being curious
Maybe I know too much or maybe I don’t even know enough
But what this whole case of paranoia
I guess it’s what I get, I guess it’s what I get for being curious
Don’t need the fruit right from the tree
Look what it has done to me
So many years living in fear, just cu I know everything
Don’t need the fruit right from the tree
Look what it has done to me
So many years living in fear, just cu I know everything.
