“Once Again”

A little reminder to check out “ONCE AGAIN” – the winner of John Lennon Songwriting contest in the World Category Session I 2016 – a song I wrote with Rahman Jamaal

Soon – in April 2017 – we are calling on your support to vote for our song to win “A Lennon Award” – and reach the next level of the competition to quality for song of the year! http://jlsc.com

Women’s Rights Are Human Rights – Sending a message to TRUMP

I wish I could have been there. But I am in Bolivia – producing music – which I hope will inspire a change.

#lovearmy #imanastywomen Fuel me (…) I cannot survive on righteous anger alone (…) Our approach to freedom need not be identical but it must be intersectional and inclusive. It must extend beyond ourselves. (…) Collective liberation and solidarity is difficult work it is work that will find us struggling together and struggling with one another. Just because we are oppressed does not mean that we ourselves do not fall victim to enacting the same unconscious policing shaming and erasing. We must return to one another with greater accountability and commitment to the work today. (…) A movement is so much more than a march, a movement is that difficult space between our reality and our vision. Our liberation depends on all of us. All of us returning to our homes and using this experience and all of the experiences that have shaped us – to act – to organize to resist. – Janet Mock

Greetings! Happy 2016!

After a very musically productive end of the 2015, I am so very happy to be able to present to you a couple of singles from the soon coming new album set to be released March 18, 2015.

I have two shows coming up in the SF Bay area to present these and I really hope that you can make it out!
1/23/16 at the Ashkenaz in Berkeley, and
2/5/16 At Angelicas in Redwood city

The new singles are:

AVENTURERA blends South American sounds w/a flavor of reggaeton, intertwining talents of Yuriza Jared (Sang Matiz) & Razteria. We become the adventurer in the song, traveling either physically or spiritually, to grow & heal. Available for purchase on all digital platforms 1/15/16.

CHANGE, contrasting artists Rahman Jamaal & Razteria, fuse on this trilingual crossover track which calls for revolutionizing our mind-state without fear. Change is the only constant in Life. Available for purchase on all digital platforms 1/22/16.

I look forward to seeing you at the shows!

Thank you for your support :)

Love, Renee

LITTLE SISTER / Lil Eyz

Lyrics/letra/paroles

 

Verse/verso/couplet #1

 

Little sister, whatcha doing today, give me your hand so we can go out and play

Hermanita que haces hoy día, da me tu mano para que vayamos a  jugar

Petite soeur qu’est-ce que tu fais aujourd’hui, donnes-moi ta main pour qu’on aye jouer

 

When I saw you the first time I didn’t know what to do but then I got a chance to hold you

No sabía qué hacer cuando te vi por la primera vez pero tuve chance de sostenerte

Je ne savais pas quoi faire quand je t’ai vue pour la première fois mais j’ai eu la chance de te porter dans mes bras

 

Sister whatcha doing today I got a plan, lets go out and play

Hermanita que haces hoy día, tengo un plan, salimos a jugar 

Petite soeur qu’est-ce que tu fais aujourd’hui, j’ai un plan, on va sortir pour jouer

 

You change every heartbeat – I grew with you too, each and every step I’d like to help you

Cambias con cada bate de corazón, y he cambiado junto con tigo, paso por paso quiero apoyarte

Tu changes avec chaque battement de coeur, et j’ai progressé avec toi, pas à pas je voudrais t’aider

 

Chorus/estribillo/refrain

 

Brushin alongside of me, Give me your hand say hi to me,

Rozando a mi lado, Da me tu mano, Saludando me

Près de mon côté, Donnes-moi ta main, me saluant

 

Don’t please don’t cry, I’ll never say goodbye (X2)

Por favor no lloras, Jamás diré Adiós

S’il te plais ne pleures pas, Jamais je dires au revoir

 

Sister whatcha doing today I got a plan, let’s go out and play

Hermanita que haces hoy día, da me tu mano para que vayamos a  jugar

Petite soeur qu’est-ce que tu fais aujourd’hui, donnes-moi ta main pour qu’on aye jouer

 

I wanna be there for you hear your calling, share my thoughts and hope they can help you too

Quisiera estar para escuchar tu llamada, compartir mis pensamientos esperando que te ayudaran

J’aimerais être là pour entendre ton appelle, partager mes penses en espérant qu’ils te servent

 

Sister whatcha doing today I got a plan, lets go out and play

Hermanita que haces hoy día, tengo un plan, salimos a jugar 

Petite soeur qu’est-ce que tu fais aujourd’hui, j’ai un plan, on va sortir pour jouer

 

It’s a beautiful life shall we walk it together Whatcha say whatcha say

La vida es bella, caminaremos la junta, que te parece que dices

La vie est belle, est-ce qu’on peut la marcher ensemble?

 

Instrumental/instrumental/musique

 

Little sister, whatcha doing today, Give me your hand so we can go out and play

Hermanita que haces hoy día, da me tu mano para que vayamos a  jugar

Petite soeur qu’est-ce que tu fais aujourd’hui, donnes-moi ta main pour qu’on aye jouer

 

In times of trouble never hesitate to reach out to me, I’ll do whatever it takes

Siempre puedes contar con migo cuando hay desafíos demasiados grandes, haría todo lo posible

Dans les moments les plus difficiles, tu peux toujours compter sur moi, je ferai tout le possible

 

Sister whatcha doing today I got a plan, let’s go out and play

Hermanita que haces hoy día, da me tu mano para que vayamos a  jugar

Petite soeur qu’est-ce que tu fais aujourd’hui, donnes-moi ta main pour qu’on aye jouer

 

Like seeds in the garden need water and light, Working together it’s gonna be alright

Como semillas en el jardín requieren agua y luz, todo es posible cuando trabajamos juntas

Comme des semences dans le jardin ont besoin d’eau et de lumière, tout est possible quand on travailles ensemble

 

Chorus/estribillo/refrain

 

Brushin alongside of me, Give me your hand say hi to me,

Rozando a mi lado, Da me tu mano, Saludando me

Près de mon côté, Donnes-moi ta main, me saluant

 

Don’t please don’t cry, I’ll never say goodbye (X2)

Por favor no lloras, Jamás diré Adiós

S’il te plais ne pleures pas, Jamais je dires au revoir

 

Ending/final/fin

 

I see you brushing alongside of me, I see you running alongside of me, I see you dancing along side of me, I’ll never say good bye

Te veo rozando a mi lado, corriendo a mi lado, bailando a mi lado, jamás diré Adiós

Je te vois près de mon côté, courant de mon côté, dansant de mon côté, Jamais je dirais au revoir

 

I see you running alongside of me, I see you dancing along side of me, I see you smiling longside of me, I’ll never say good bye

Te veo corriendo a mi lado, bailando a mi lado, sonriendo a mi lado, jamás diré Adiós

Je te vois courant de mon côté, dansant de mon côté, sourient de mon côté, Jamais je dirais au revoir

 

Sister you can come to me for anything, You can trust me I’m here for you just know that

Come to me, Just call on me you can count on me, You can call on me, I’ll never say goodbye.

 

Hermana puedes pedirme le que sea, haz me confianza, estoy aquí para ti, jamás diré Adiós

Ma soeur tu peux me demander tout ce que tu veux, fais-moi confiance, je suis là pour toi, je ne dirais jamais au revoir
