New Buju/John Legend Collab: Listen

Buju Banton released the audio for the song, “Memories” on Friday, May 8th. The song is a collaboration with John Legend in the historical tradition of deejay/singer, and tells a story of regret, with Buju recounting how and why things in a relationship went wrong. Part of the lyrics are reproduced below

Buju:

Treasure yuh body but I cherish yuh mind
Even though it’s complicated which is most of the time
A life without your love ain’t working out fine
Perception and reality clearly define
I bet you never know the love mi have inna mi heart
We mek simple mistakes tear us apart
Forgetting where we coming from and how it all start
Using harsh words, bitter arrows and sparks
We live inna di same house and we nah talk
We used to be on and now we’re totally off
Oh I wish this was never our past
Oh there is no love lost, know that

John Legend:

Even when I try to myself the things I say wasn’t meant to be this way
Love is not game to play, yes we went our separate ways but the memories
Even when I try to myself the things I say wasn’t meant to be this way
Love is not game to play, yes we went our separate ways but the memories

Buju:

Over many moons since we part
But the memories remain with the love inna mi heart
Care not how many friendships I start
This spot weh yuh touch still tender and soft
To be honest I do miss the fires and sparks
But I rather to live on di rooftop or somewhere in a park
But where did we mess up realize the blame
She left me a message explaining her pain
She said, I tried even avoid
Surrounding distractions and outside noise
But we both make mistakes and we both lied
Oh and now here we are
