The Rain (by DMX) 

I had hoped that after suffering a heart attack last week, DMX (Earl Simmons) would pull through. It was asking a lot. The heart attack left him on life support and basically brain-dead. His family called it today. DMX passed away today at 50. The…

LeBron takes on the Monstars in the Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer! 

I’ll admit to being a little excited for this newest generation of 1996’s Space Jam. I love cartoon / live action mashups, and Space Jam: A New Legacy looks like it’s all that and then some. Director Malcolm D. Lee (Roll Bounce, Night School) leads…

All for Us – by Labrinth & Zendaya 

I’ve been following HBO’s Euphoria since it started some weeks ago. It’s been a wild ride through the lives of Rue (Zendaya) and her friends. Note that the following may be a spoiler if you haven’t seen last night’s Season Finale. The last few minutes of the show were part of a music number, which HBO was cool enough to make available on YouTube. As Zendaya is somewhat new to me (from the Spider-Man films), I wasn’t aware that she was also a singer. Here is her collaboration with Labrinth, All for Us.

 

 

The lyrics are below, some of which were updated from the original to fit the show (Source from Genius.com):

[Intro: Labrinth]
Oooh
I’m taking it all for us
Taking it all
Taking it all for us
Ooh
I’m doing it all for love
I’m doing it all
I’m doing it all for love

[Drop: Labrinth & Both]
Taking it all for us, all
Doing it all for love
Aye-aye, aye-aye

[Verse 1: Zendaya & Labrinth]
Too much in my system (Famine, famine)
Money MIA (Pockets hell-a empty)
Mumma making ends meet (Making ends meet)
Working like a slave (Mississippi, aye-aye)
Daddy ain’t at home, no (Father, Father)
Gotta be a man (Michael Corleone)
Do it for my homegrown’s (Sisters, brothers)
Do it for the fam (Yeah, so tell em Labby)

[Pre-Chorus 1: Zendaya & Labrinth]
Aye
Just for your love yeh I’ll
Give you the world
Mona Lisa’s smile
Aye
Hell I’ll do 25 to life
If it makes me a king
A star in your eyes

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Guilty or innocent
My love is infinite, I’m giving it
No need for prisoners
Bitch please hands up this is a stick up cause I’m

[Hook: Zendaya & Labrinth & Both]
I’m, aye
I’m taking it
Aye-aye
I’m taking it all for us all
Doing it all for love
Aye aye aye aye

[M8: Zendaya & Labrinth & Both]
Guess you figured my two times two
Always equates to one
Dreamers are selfish
When it all comes down to it
I hope one of you come back to remind me of who I was
When I go disappearing

Into that good night, good night, good night, good night, good night

[Hook: Both]
I’m taking it all for us, all
Doing it all for love
Aye aye aye aye
