Samira premieres a Welshy-produced piece of music titled “That’s Not What My Friends Say.” Listen, stream, read the lyrics, buy the track.

Co-written by Samira and British singer/songwriter Evalina, along with DJ and producer Welshy (Kygo, The Chainsmokers), the super catchy track serves as the follow up previous single release “Like This, Like That” which received praise from the likes of CLASH, MTV UK and The Official Charts, and was also featured on the last season of Love Island.

Of her latest offering, the “I Love Your Smile” singer says: “Like it is for most girls my age, dating is… interesting! And so I wanted to write a semi-autobiographical girl power anthem that was spicy and full of personality, that celebrated friendship and the role your friends often take in spotting the red flags before you do!”

“I wrote this with the immensely talented UK-House powerhouse that is Welshy, alongside singer/songwriter Evalina, and it takes my love of no-nonsense late 90s female R&B lyricism and puts a very 2023 spin on it! It’s very much the fun, sassy little sister to ‘Like This, Like That’, and hopefully shows another facet to who I am as an artist.”

Lyrics

[Intro]
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say

[Verse 1]
I’m just playin’ detective on ya
Already knowin’ the truth
Should never shine the spotlight on ya
I should have picked up the clues

[Chorus]
Said you stayed at home
But that’s not what my friends say
Said you were alone
But that’s not what my friends say
Cancelled our plans
They saw your red hands in motion
Thought I’d never know
But that’s not what my friends say

[Post-Chorus]
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say

[Verse 2]
You thought you could hide your little secret
At the back of the bar
You know the eyes are watchin’, you know the walls are talkin’
And now I know where you are (You are)

[Chorus]
Said you stayed at home (At home)
But that’s not what my friends say
Said you were alone (Yeah)
But that’s not what my friends say
Cancelled our plans
They saw your red hands in motion
Thought I’d never know
But that’s not what my friends say

[Post-Chorus]
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say

[Bridge]
I was addicted to ya, what can I say? (What can I say?)
I played the victim in your stupid games (Your stupid games)
You never loved me like I do
You’re just a thing that I’ve gone through
I won’t waste another second on you (Yeah)

[Chorus]
Said you stayed at home
But that’s not what my friends say (That’s not what my friends say)
Said you were alone
But that’s not what my friends say (That’s not what my friends say)
Cancelled our plans
They saw your red hands in motion
Thought I’d never know
But that’s not what my friends say

[Post-Chorus]
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say (Oh-woah)
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say (Yeah)
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say
Na-na, na-na, na, that’s not what my friends say

[Outro]
What my friends say (What my friends say), that’s not what my friends say (Not what my friends say)
What my friends say (Yeah), that’s not what my friends say (Oh, yeah)
What my friends say (Not what my friends say), that’s not what my friends say (Not what my friends say)
What my friends say (Yeah), that’s not what my friends say
