Broke With Expensive Taste track listing
"Yung Rapunxel" "Chasing Time"

"Soda" is a song performed by Azealia Banks. It serves as the eleventh track on Azealia's debut album Broke With Expensive Taste.

Background[]

The song was going to be used as a third single from their debut album but was discarded by Chasing Time.

After several teasers in 2018, on March 20 of the same year she published the official video for the track, the reason why she decided to get an official video after quite some time is unknown.

Music and composition[]

Azealia stated through her twitter account that the track was about self-medicating[1].

Azealia on another tweet:

"Soda is about getting high, and the sadness that comes when the sun comes up and you're still awake."[2]

Critical reception[]

Pitchfork opined:

"By the end of Broke With Expensive Taste you’ll come to see Azealia Banks as a dance pop classicist underneath the flailing. The capable but unfussy approach to melody on deep cut confections "Soda" and "Miss Camaraderie" as well as Fantasea holdover "Luxury" and the massive "Chasing Time" showcase Azealia as a singer who’s studied her Robin S. and Technotronic."[3]

Lyrics[]

[Chorus]
Tried to hide behind tired eyes, I sigh
I'm tired of trying to try not to cry and
I say soda, soda !
Tye dye O'er
I roll the dye
I coast, I dose, I...

[Verse 1]
A smile a guise
I'm trying to hide behind tired eyes, I sigh
I might survive the nighttime, I might die
I say soda soda, I'm a high roller
Yo sir I pose for the poster- Yep!

Icy Cola Coca, Sprite I love the most-a!
I ride rollercoasters! I try all the cultures!
A smile, a guise
Nighttime, is mine to lie eyes awide and I...
I'm tired of trying to try not to cry and...

I say soda !...
I'm lota, yo sir
I ride roller-
I try all the cultures!
Light my swollen smoker
I might comatosa
I once used to be your girl

[Bridge: Azealia Banks (Cassie)]
I used to be your girl
I used to be your girl, girl
I used to be your girl
I used to be your girl
I used to be your girl
I used to be your...
(What I wanna do with you)

[Verse 2]
Been too busy, but I don't wanna deal with you
Been thinkin' 'bout the way you treat me right, yeah...
It's you and me, but I don't wanna deal with you
Been thinking 'bout the way you'll leave me right, here...
Been too busy, but I don't wanna deal with you
Been thinkin' 'bout the way you treat me right, yeah...
It's you and me, but I don't wanna deal with you
Been thinking 'bout the way you'll leave me right, here...

[Chorus (Variation)]
I'm trying to hide behind tired eyes, I sigh
I'm tired of trying to try not to cry and
I say soda, soda
Tye dye O'er, I roll the dye, I coast, I dose, I
Tra-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la
(Tra-la-la-la-la-la)
I'm trying to hide behind tired eyes, I sigh
I'm tired of trying to try not to cry and
I say soda soda, I'm a high rolla- yo sir
I pose for the poster- Yep!
Icy Cola Coke-a, Sprite I love the most-a!
I ride rollercoasters, I try all the cultures
A smile, a guise
Nighttime is mine, and my eyes are wide at night
