    CK's rap in Rule Your World is the best part of the song I think and I've been replaying BDN it's starting to grow on me.

    'Rule your World' is SEX. Loving it so much. Light years better than DDD and BDN. The Japanese lyrics don't bother me- it's almost very kitsch, if that makes any sense. It doesn't seem as forced as it did in DDD. I want to hear more like this!

    "Rule Your World" is the direction Kuri needs to go. I can see her making major moves with this sound.

    v You're not the only one, the first time I heard the song I couldn't make out what she was saying either. "You don't wanna be another wanna be up in this town" but "You will be...." That's the lyric I don't understand. I didn't even know she said "And yeah it's written in the stars", so thanks for that.

    Is anyone else having trouble understanding what she says in BDN? Like in the chorus, what comes after "You're instagrammin' poppin'/And yeah it's written in the stars/You will be______?" lol I've been listening to the song non stop and can't figure it out. Also the part where she's like "You can wait all you want for luck/But I won't be sticking around/You don't wanna be another____________?" haha
