"Nirvana"

"Nirvan" is a song performed by Azealia Banks. It is currently not registered on any music publishing site and has no known producers or co-writers. The track was released for streaming through her SoundCloud on February 11, 2020, and it is unknown if it belongs to a longer project or is a standalone single.

Background[]

Azealia shared a fragment of the song on February 10, 2020 through her Instagram stories and then in a post.[1] The next day, she shared three conceptual ideas for the cover of the song and fans had to choose which of the three covers was the best.[2]

The track was reworked and surprisingly uploaded on all music platforms with a new cover art on April 19, 2021.[3]

Critical reception[]

Hot New Hip Hop opined: "...she has come forward with a new single called "Nirvana," which arrives complete with hard-hitting Spanish bars. Throw in a drill-inspired beat from Onyx and As If Kid, and you've got all the major boxes checked off. 

Alternating between languages with a deft flow, Banks seems to be having fun on this one. Technically speaking, she sounds as focused as ever, riding the string-heavy instrumental with typical swagger. It's unclear whether this new direction is a one-off or an indication of future musical developments, but it's always nice to see her in a creative headspace."[4]

The Fader opined: "Nirvana is a straightforward banger with bruising bass and a string-driven melody perfect for the era of Pop Smoke."[5]

Lyrics[]

[Intro]
Si-si, ah
Si-si, ah

[Verse 1]
No te enamores
No te ilusiones
Somos salvajes
Tu no me conoces
Bitch I'm the real deal
My diamonds son bien frios
Si tu me preguntas lo que a mi me gusta en la cama soy "Kill-Bill"
Soy una freak, esa es mi fama
Pero en la mesa, yo soy una dama
Vestida de Prada y en la minifalda
Si te comes todo me quedo sin nada
Y es un placer, no digas nada
Y yo como bala, ya nadie me para

[Chorus]
Tan pronto el me dice que me ama
Pero solo lo que quiero a la cama
Dale con calma hasta la mañana
Aprovecha en la noche que ya no hay mañana
Yo soy la princesa, tu eres la rana
Y yo lo que quiero es llegar a nirvana
Llegar a nirvana
Llévame a nirvana
Llévame a nirvana
Llévame a nirvana

[Interlude]
Yo no quiero que tu pienses que te quiero ni un poquito
Lo que quiero es doggystyle, y se llama perreito

[Verse 2]
So seductive in expensive gowns
I got on princess cuts
I'm feeling frigid now
He in Armani tux
I'm gettin' pregnant now
No prenup on
We gettin' married now
Fucked up on me when he skated town
You know that dick was good
I'm bout to bust him down
I'm bout to bust up out
All you fuckin' clowns
N*ggas kiss the ring but never touch the crown

[Chorus]
Tan pronto el me dice que me ama
Pero solo lo que quiero a la cama
Dale con calma hasta la mañana
Aprovecha en la noche que ya no hay mañana
Yo soy la princesa, tu eres la rana
Y yo lo que quiero es llegar a nirvana
Llegar a nirvana
Llévame a nirvana
Llévame a nirvana
Llévame a nirvana
