Mila J – Smoke, Drink, Break Up

Mila J fancied her musical styling in the same light as her singing and rapping idols TLC and Missy Elliott. Add to her singing and rapping combo her passion for dancing and ability to write song lyrics, and it seemed apparent that this Los Angeles native aimed to achieve the same level of acclaim and prosperity as those same pop icons of hers. Born of black, Japanese, and Native American descent, Mila J (real name Jamila Chilumbo) started rapping, according to the singer, at the age of four, inspired by a deep admiration for the Fat Boys and the ’80s cult hip-hop movie Krush Groove. Because her father was a studio musician, the music bug was in the rest of her family as well, namely her sisters Jhené and Miyoko. Her break into the music industry occurred at the age of nine when she met the owner and CEO of The Ultimate Group, Chris Stokes, at a video shoot for his group Immature; in addition, she also caught Stokes’ attention with her appearance in Prince’s “Diamond and Pearls” video in 1991. Mila J went on to dance professionally for Stokes and Immature between the ages of 12 and 15. Along with Miyoko, she was a member of the Stokes-driven Gyrl, who released singles for Silas/MCA. Several years later, she was part of the shorter-lived Dame Four, yet another Stokes venture. She then went solo. Her petite vocals could be heard on the 2006 singles “Complete” and the charting “Good Lookin’ Out,” which built up anticipation for her debut album, Split Personality, released via Universal that November. After going by the name Japollonia, she reappeared on Motown as Mila J with the 2014 single “Smoke, Drink, Break-Up.”

Mila J – Smoke, Drink, Break Up

Mila J makes a strong case for the Chilombo family with the premiere of the music video for her comeback single “Smoke, Drink, Break-Up.” The sexy singer, songwriter and dancer is currently known as the older sister of breakout star Jhené Aiko, but Mila as been in and around the industry most of her life.

Mila J – Smoke, Drink, Break Up Lyrics:
See, I gotta be outta my head
To deal with ya
And I gotta be outta my head
To be still with ya

See, I love you but I don’t like that
I leave, but then I come right back to you
So what is the point?
I might as well sit here and roll me a joint

Or pour me a drink,
So I can wasted and wont have to think
No more. Get High as a plane
Cause sober we drive each other insane

And we know if we don’t
We gon’ start fighting again

[Chorus]
It’s hard, when we drink
All we break up
Either we smoke
Or we drink
Or we break up
Only time we don’t fight
Is when we drinking or high
(Either we smoking or drinking)
(Or we at each other’s throat)

I’ve gotta be outta my head
To deal with ya
And I’ve gotta be outta my head
To be still with you

See, I love you but I don’t like that
Keep leaving, but then I come right back to you
So what is the point?
So I roll me swisha, pour me some liquor before we start to bicker

And calling each other out our names,
like bitches and nikkas
Arguing over all that small shit, keeps getting bigger
Giet me a corona out the kitchen
[Chorus]
Nigga we only get along when we high
Nigga we only get along when we high
[Chorus]
The only time we don’t fight is if were drinking or high.
[Chorus]
Thug Love [x4]
