Bound 2 Lyrics
Jump to:
[Hook:]
Bound to fall in love
Bound to fall in love (Uh-huh, honey)

[Bridge:]
All them other niggas lame, and you know it now
When a real nigga hold you down, you supposed to drown

[Hook:]
Bound to fall in love
Bound to fall in love (Uh-huh, honey)

[Verse 1:]
What you doing in the club on a Thursday?
She say she only here for her girl birthday
They ordered champagne but still look thirsty
Rock Forever 21 but just turned thirty
I know I got a bad reputation
Walking 'round, always mad reputation
Leave a pretty girl sad reputation
Start a Fight Club, Brad reputation
I turnt the nightclub out of the basement
I'll turn the plane 'round, your ass keep complaining
How you gon' be mad on vacation?
Dutty wining 'round all these Jamaicans
Uh, this that prom shit
This that what we do, don't tell your mom shit
This that red cup, all on the lawn shit
Got a fresh cut, straight out the salon, bitch

[Charlie Wilson:]
I know you're tired of loving, of loving
With nobody to love, nobody, nobody (Uh-huh, honey)

[Kanye West:]
Close your eyes and let the word paint a thousand pictures
One good girl is worth a thousand bitches

[Hook:]
Bound to fall in love
Bound to fall in love (Uh-huh, honey)

[Verse 2:]
I wanna f*ck you hard on the sink
After that, give you something to drink
Step back, can't get spunk on the mink
I mean damn, what would Jeromey Romey Romey Rome think?
Hey, you remember where we first met?
Okay, I don't remember where we first met
But hey, admitting is the first step
And hey, you know ain't nobody perfect
And I know, with the hoes I got the worst rep
But hey, their backstroke I'm tryna perfect
And hey, ayo, we made it, Thanksgiving
So hey, maybe we can make it to Christmas
She asked me what I wished for on the wishlist
Have you ever asked your bitch for other bitches?
Maybe we could still make it to the church steps
But first, you gon' remember how to forget
After all these long-ass verses
I'm tired, you tired, Jesus wept

[Charlie Wilson:]
I know you're tired of loving, of loving
No hiding your love, no hiding, no hiding
Just grab somebody, no leaving this party
With nobody to love, nobody, nobody (Uh-huh, honey)

[Kanye West:]
Jerome's in the house, watch your mouth
Jerome's in the house, watch your mouth

[Hook:]
Bound to fall in love
Bound to fall in love (Uh-huh, honey)

Bound 2 Info:

Bound 2 is featured as the tenth and final track from Kanye West's sixth studio album Yeezus. The song features vocals from American soul singer Charlie Wilson and serves as the album's second single. This was one of several songs on Yeezus that super-producer Rick Rubin worked on. West had come to him three weeks before the album's last possible delivery date to the label asking him to help complete the job.

Bound 2 features heavy soul music samples and has been described as the only song on Yeezus which recalls the sound of West's early work. "Bound", a 1971 song by American soul group Ponderosa Twins Plus One from their album 2 + 2 = 1, serves as the primary sample used in West's track. Samples from "Aeroplane (Reprise)", written by Norman Whiteside and performed by Wee, are also utilized. "Bound 2" samples the line "Uh-huh, honey" from the song "Sweet Nothin's", written by Ronnie Self and performed by country singer Brenda Lee

Brenda Lee reacted positively to the sampling of her song on the track, saying: "As I've said, it's always nice to be recognized. It says a wonderful thing about Ronnie Self, who wrote the song. That 50 years after it was written, somebody in Kanye's camp knew the song and said, 'Let's use it.' That's a compliment to Ronnie."

Music video:
"Bound 2" on YouTube

The Nick Knight-directed music video was premiered on November 19, 2013. The video features his fiancée Kim Kardashian, topless, riding on a motorbike with West through Monument Valley and other landscapes. Eric Diep of XXL described it as, "a confident display of love and passion with little to no narrative."

Actors James Franco and Seth Rogen filmed a shot-for-shot parody video of the promo during downtime on the pair's movie, The Interview. The deadpan version of the visual found Franco playing West and Rogen taking on the role of Kardashian. Kim Kardashian revealed that she and West found the clip to be very funny.
