Kanye West - Bound 2

[Hook:]
Bound to fall in love
Bound to fall in love
(Uh-huh, honey)


[Bridge: Kanye West]
All them other niggas lame, and you know it now
When a real nigga hold you down, you supposed to drown
Bound...

[Hook:]
Bound to fall in love
Bound to fall in love
(Uh-huh, honey)

[Verse 1: Kanye West]
What you doing in the club on a Thursday?
She say she only here for her girl birthday
They ordered champagne but still look thirsty
Rock Forever 21 but just turned thirty
I know I got a bad reputation
Walking 'round, always mad reputation
Leave a pretty girl sad reputation
Start a Fight Club, Brad reputation
I turnt the nightclub out of the basement
I'll turn the plane 'round, your ass keep complaining
How you gon' be mad on vacation?
Dutty wining 'round all these Jamaicans
Uh, this that prom shit
This that what we do, don't tell your mom shit
This that red cup, all on the lawn shit
Got a fresh cut, straight out the salon, bitch

[Bridge: Charlie Wilson]
I know you're tired of loving, of loving
With nobody to love, nobody, nobody (Uh-huh, honey)

[Bridge: Kanye West]
Close your eyes and let the word paint a thousand pictures
One good girl is worth a thousand bitches

[Hook:]
Bound to fall in love
Bound to fall in love
(Uh-huh, honey)

[Verse 2: Kanye West]
I wanna fuck you hard on the sink
After that, give you something to drink
Step back, can't get spunk on the mink
I mean damn, what would Jeromey Romey Romey Rome think?
Hey, you remember where we first met?
Okay, I don't remember where we first met
But hey, admitting is the first step
And hey, you know ain't nobody perfect
And I know, with the hoes I got the worst rep
But hey, their backstroke I'm tryna perfect
And hey, ayo, we made it, Thanksgiving
So hey, maybe we can make it to Christmas
She asked me what I wished for on my wishlist
Have you ever asked your bitch for other bitches?
Maybe we could still make it to the church steps
But first, you gon' remember how to forget
After all these long-ass verses
I'm tired, you tired, Jesus wept

[Bridge: Charlie Wilson]
I know you're tired of loving, of loving
With nobody to love, nobody, nobody
Just grab somebody, no leaving this party
With nobody to love, nobody, nobody (Uh-huh, honey)

[Bridge: Kanye West]
Jerome's in the house, watch your mouth
Jerome's in the house, watch your mouth

[Hook:]
Bound to fall in love
Bound to fall in love
(Uh-huh, honey)

As opposed to the industrial, electronic influences found throughout "Yeezus", this warm soulful track sees Kanye “Bound 2” his partner, Kim Kardashian. Reminiscent of West’s earlier work, the soul instrumental and background vocals are sampled from the Ponderosa Twins Plus One’s 1971 song “Bound,” whereas the memorable ‘uh-huh, honey’ comes from the intro to Brenda Lee’s 1959 record “Sweet Nothin’s.” Kanye first shared a short snippet of this song on his website together with the album cover casing for "Yeezus". Along with “New Slaves” and “Black Skinhead,” “Bound 2” was one of three singles to be previewed before the album’s release. However, it was one of the last tracks to be finished—three weeks before the album’s last possible delivery date, Kanye enlisted Rick Rubin to help finish the song. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Rubin recalled: "The whole song was written without that main sample; it was a last-minute thing. The song had kind of a lot of R&B music in it. […] So we started by getting the sample to work in the song, and then taking out as much stuff as we could, and then in the chorus reducing what was this whole musical thing, just this sort of one ugly, distorted bass note. I was thinking like Alan Vega and Suicide, that kind of noise-synth minimal vibe." “Bound 2” peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. The original, pre-Rick Rubin version of “Bound,” titled “Bound 1,” was premiered by producer Hudson Mohawke at a concert in 2014.
