Seeing as Mahalia titled her new EP, Letter To Ur Ex, we were expecting to hear some songs about heartbreak, but the title at the end of the tracklist – “Letter To Ur N(ex)t” – where the R&B star pens a letter to her former lover’s new boo, is an emotional standout.
“Woman to woman / You gotta run, baby, just like I wouldn’t / You gotta go, baby, just like I couldn’t,” she sings, warning the new woman in his life. “Before you’re caught in this drama, drama, drama, drama / I don’t wanna sound like a bitch, no, I don’t wanna / But if you carry on like this, you gon’ get your karma / Take it from a girl who’s already been through the trauma.”
Other titles on the 5-track EP include the previously released “In The Club,” and “Whatever Simon Says,” as well as another new tune called “Forever.”
Mahalia – Letter To Ur N(ex)t (prod. Dan Diggas & JD. Reid)
Let me introduce myself properly
Though it’s clear you already heard about me
When he told you ’bout the breakup, did he blame me? Mm
Did he tell you I was crazy?
But did he tell you all the times that he broke my heart and broke my mind?
No, I bet he didn’t
I bet he told you that he isn’t a bad guy
Now, truth is he never started out like that
He was kind and attentive and just my man
Then one day, he said he’d be right back
But then he never came back around
And he never told me why
Never gave an explanation, not a text, not a goodbye
Not a “sorry,” not a “love you,” not anything
I don’t owe you anything, but
Woman to woman
You gotta run, baby, just like I wouldn’t
You gotta go, baby, just like I couldn’t
Before you’re caught in this drama, drama, drama, drama
I don’t wanna sound like a bitch, no, I don’t wanna
But if you carry on like this, you gon’ get your karma
Take it from a girl who’s already been through the trauma
So I’ll stop with the textin’, callin’, showin’ up
I think you know what he’s doin’ and that it ain’t showin’ love
So stop now, baby, don’t let him make you crazy like me
You still got enough time to leave, yeah
