Burn It Up

  • Lyrics
  • James told Artist Direct that this song "is about burning a guy's house down after he has cheated on you or not been good to you." She added: "I don't know if a lot of pop artists sing about that, but I wanted to. I think if a guy does you wrong, you should just burn his house down [Laughs]. In the second verse, I'm telling the sheriff he was not very good to me what do you expect me to do? Message out to guys: don't date me; I'm crazy [Laughs]."
