  • Roses
    I walked in the corner with the body screaming dolo
    Never sold a bag but look like Pablo in a photo
    This gon' make 'em feel the way like Tony killed Manolo
    You already know though, you already know though
    I walk in the corner with the money, on my finger
    She might get it popping, I might wife her for the winter
    I already know, already know, nigga roses
    All I need is roses

    Turn up baby, turn up, when I turn it on
    You know how I get too lit when I turn it on
    Can't handle my behavior when I turn it on
    Too fast, never ask, if the life don't last
    Done been through it all
    Fuck with a nigga raw, this who you wa-

    She rolled it
    I walk in the corner with the money, on my finger
    She might get it popping, I might wife her for the winter
    I already know, already know, nigga roses
    All I need is roses, all I need is

    Couple of killers, a lot of gorillas
    I don't want to see what I don't know
    Whole lotta villas a lot of Shakiras
    Just don't put a flash on the photos
    You and your friend against me and myself
    Now you already know how it's gon' go
    Just know I come from the jungle
    Back to the trap when the phone's low
    You don' gotta stop with the roses
    Nigga, you don' gotta love it, what the world chose is
    When a win side up for the losses
    Two hoes, winnin' like Moses
    And too bad, too bad, I'm buying
    Nigga, two fingers up for the gun sign
    Nigga, two champagnes for a fun time

    I walk in the corner with the money, on my finger
    She might get it popping, I might wife her for the winter
    I already know, already know, nigga roses
    All I need is roses

    Turn up baby, turn up, when I turn it on
    You know how I get too lit when I turn it on
    Can't handle my behavior when I turn it on
    Too fast, never ask, if the life don't last
    Done been through it all
    Fuck with a nigga raw, this who you wa- (leggo)

    Verano en Ibiza (wy)
    Hago dinero muerto de la risa (wuh)
    Obras de arte como Mona Lisa
    Yo voy pa Italia solo pa' una pizza, ey (Oh)
    No nos baja ni la ley (nah)
    Sin reina pero soy el rey (king)
    Yo sé que está loca por conocer las cincuentas sombras de J

    Nadie se la vive como me la vivo yo
    Yates y mujeres, el party lo pongo yo
    Tanto que critican y quieren ser como yo
    Pero no les dio, pero no les dio
    Nadie se la vive como me la vivo yo
    Yates y mujeres, el party lo pongo yo
    Tanto que critican y quieren ser como yo
    Pero no les dio

    Roses
    I might pull up flexing on these niggas like aerobics
    I might tell her girl you cute but balling, that shit gorgeous
    Standing on the table, Rosé, Rosé, fuck the waters
    You know who the God is

    Turn up baby, turn up, when I turn it on
    You know how I get too lit when I turn it on
    Can't handle my behavior when I turn it on
    Too fast, never ask, if the life don't last
    Done been through it all
    Fuck with a nigga raw, this who you wa- Writer/s: Carlos St. John Phillips, José Álvaro Osorio Balvin, Lee Stanshenko

  • Haha from HahaHaha, you ni--as know exactly what the song and video mean and which system they are talking about but you are going round and round around the subject, haha, dont play dumb with me or anyone, f--k you
  • Earl Johnson from MiamiJamal... almost but not right... this song is about the helpless getting so feed up with being oppressed that they rise up in anger and violence and destroy everything in front of them... the song is about rebellion and don’t push me because you not going to be able to handle me when I turn up the heat... the movie that inspires it goes a little further.
  • Shane from Portage WiSaint Jhn was slated to do a video to this remix, but in light of the protests, he instead donated the money for the video to bail out protesters that were jailed. That's real s--t
  • Jamal R. from Yonkers, NyImpressed?? He is Portraying a Love of Destruction of Everything Holy and the Overall destruction of what furthers the human race - A Hierarchy. And everything wrong with Black Culture which is the Cause of destruction for Black, is in this video. And it's LOVED? And everyone wonders why this is such destruction in the streets. The data doesn't at All back up police brutality. And this keeps people believing they have a Right to destroy.
  • Lisa from Sacramento, CaWow... I'm really surprised to find the true depth of that song. I love the beat, the lyrics kinda threw me so I wanted to understand it better. I'm very impressed with the singer, Saint Jhn, and his depth as a songwriter.
