  • Lyrics
  • The follow-up to "Medicine," "Karma" finds Queen Naija addressing the same ex she sung of on her breakthrough single. Here, she recounts how she stuck by him during the bad times, but when things got better he dumped her. She warns the dude that he will get just what he deserves.

    You don't gotta worry 'bout me
    You made it clear that you're unhappy
    Go ahead and have your fun now
    Just remember what goes around, comes around


    Queen Naija explained in a Genius attribution: "I'm a big believer in that what you reap, you will sow. And if you sow bad, you're going to reap bad. The way you treat people, it may not happen right after, but years down the line, you'll get that back. So, you really got to watch how you treat people, what you say to people, what you do to people."
