"Six Flags"

"Silva" is a song performed by Azealia Banks. It was released as a single on August 9, 2020 only on SoundCloud.

Background[]

On March 25, 2020, Azealia Banks found a track in her files titled “Silver 1.0 2v.” and tagged producer Hudson on her Instagram stories asking if the beat belonged to her.[1]

Nothing more was known about the track until August 9 of the same year, after Azealia suffered a breakdown due to her mental problems, she decided to publish the track on SoundCloud and a message on Instagram clarified that she was better.[2]

Azealia plans to re-record the track, change the lyrics, and post the song to streaming platforms by the end of the week of publication on SoundCloud. Azealia shared a snippet of the reworked track on August 14, 2020.[3]

Music and composition[]

The track presents a sample of the song “Silver” produced by Hudson in 2015[4].

Azealia Banks on track inspiration:

“Silva Method is a self-help and meditation program developed by José Silva. It claims to increase an individual's abilities through relaxation, development of higher brain functions, and psychic abilities such as clairvoyance.”[5]

Lyrics[]

[Hook]
It's pretty misses in pretty Benzes, it's pretty vicious
It's pretty women in pretty lenses, it's Bambi bitches
This pretty princess is her, bitches to be specific
From tiara to fur, I reign with these bitches

[Verse 1]
Once upon a time
Little Bambi will shine
Designer on her mind
Vodka, soda and lime
Misbehavin' all the time
Stayin' up on her grind
Your lady hit it on
The A.B. baby heroine
Your lady’s clearly alarmed
Ya mocha almond pecan
It got ‘em open the, ah
It got ‘em hoping she worn
The chip, benji, the coins
The haters bit it and scoring
She made it bigger, of course
The diva hustles, a don
The primabella performs, this n*gga watches her charm
Let me g-get it, get it, anyway that you want
Get the taste of the plum, the nectar is always warm
A kiss under the sun
I'm fairytellin' for what, n*gga?

[Hook]
It's pretty misses in pretty Benzes, it's pretty vicious
It's pretty women in pretty lenses, it’s Bambi bitches
This pretty princess is her, bitches to be specific
From tiara to fur, I reign with these bitches

[Verse 2]
Once upon a time
Bitches they tried to climb
Trip up and slip, they tryin'
These castles are clearly mine
Sweet kisses like lullaby
Slide in the pumpkin five
Feminine, femi-nah
That's something you're nothing like
P-R-E-T-T-Y, I'm one plus with the nine
Fine, gorgeous and giddy
Giddy, gully and grime
At any instance of time, I'm making gentlemen rise
The princess of the prize, I'm flip ‘em and redesign
These are princess cut, the princess is living plush
The mistress of the lux, if you live it then lift your cup
Bambi yummy, the honey bunny
Know you want me touched
My money, hungry
Homie, if you want me then hook me up

[Hook]
It's pretty misses in pretty Benzes, it's pretty vicious
It's pretty women in pretty lenses, it’s Bambi bitches
This pretty princess is her, bitches to be specific
From tiara to fur, I reign with these bitches
