Melanie Fiona always makes a heartbreak sound so good and her latest leak “I Been That Girl” is no different. With a helping hand from Drake, who co-wrote the tune, Fiona reminisces about a bad relationship and it isn’t pretty.
“Heard about the tires on his brand new car
I knew that he’d drive you crazy
Guess the only option is to fall when you get pushed too far
You’ll think about that next time maybe
When he’s calling your name out
When he needs you back in his life
Cause he got some secrets, and all of them came up
When it’s all your name, but you can’t make the payment
He needs you to stay, but you don’t wanna go
I know cause I have been that girl”
“I Been That Girl” will appear on Fiona’s forthcoming sophomore album ‘The MF Life,’ due out March 20th. The two-time Grammy winner will head out on a promo tour for the effort beginning March 21 at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia and including the Austin Urban Music Festival on March 30 in Texas.
“It’s basically telling stories that have never been told, that I’ve experienced and grown from and learned from,” she explains about The MF Life. “I think there’s a definite balance with the highs and the lows. This time I’m stronger. I’m better. I’ve been on the ‘Wrong Side of a Love Song’ and I’m doing better and you’re watching me work.
