Joelle Tessa·April 27, 2011. Listen to Bizness here. 2. tUnE-yArDs Bizness. When I heard Bizness, it made me want to do just that. The track confronts you in a way that not many songs sustain the power to do. It’s as if the notes are physically picking up your feet and dropping them back to the floor, forcing you to dance with them. Not only this energizing approach to music draws the listener, but also the feeling that is so deeply entrenched in Merill’s vocals. You can hear the pain in her breaking voice. As she puts it, There’s this new dimension of self-loathing where you’re on exhibition for thousands of people. I would say performance is something that calls.
If I represent the one that did this to you Then can away the part that represents the thing that scarred you I say, get up, stand up, get up, stand up, get on it Yes sir, I am no longer who you thought this one would be We end up around the mountain that I climb to lose you. I said, I said give me the business that business could work through I say, ask me but all my wisdom departed Tell me but all my wisdom departed but Help please at least answer me this Answer me, answer me.
