"Shady Love" is a song by American pop band Scissor Sisters which features front-man Jake Shears' pseudonym Krystal Pepsy and uncredited vocals from Harlem rapper Azealia Banks. The song was set for release in the United Kingdom on February 12, 2012 as the lead single from the band's fourth studio album (2012), but the release was cancelled for unconfirmed reasons. The track was written by frontman Jake Shears, Azealia Banks and was produced by Alex Ridha (who also co-wrote the song). "Shady Love" received its first play on January 2 by BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac and was met with positive reviews, including NME who described it as "the first big hit of 2012".

The band did release the song as a 12-inch single, but to 300 of their Twitter and Facebook fans.

Background Edit

Talking about the song, Babydaddy stated: "It's a song we had fun making so while it wasn't necessarily true to the direction of the album or what most people might think of as Scissors, we thought it would be good to just get out there in between albums.

Music video Edit

A music video to accompany the release of "Shady Love" was first released onto YouTube on January 2, 2012 at a total length of four minutes and forty-one seconds. The video depicts a group of school children putting on a play, all lipsynching to the song.

Lyrics Edit

Give me a bump and I'll hop out the whip
Girl what you drinking, boy give me a sip
I'mma get looser than you do
And then do my voodoo, then chill in the boot with your (meow!)

and that (bump) gon' have a cheap on
I don't know what sh-t does she on
She gon' bring her friends and we gon'
Hand in hand, that's worth the return
I got the purp and the rizla thick
He wanna get sentimental with...
Let's get this show on the road where the grass is
That moist so you don't get no weeds on your lip

I'm gonna get my shady love
I'm gonna get my shady love
Shady love, shady love
I'm gonna get my, I'm gonna get my, I'm gonna get my shady love
I'm gonna get my shady love
Shady love, shady love
I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna
Shady love, shady love, shady love
Shady love, shady love, shady love

Why so tough
You see me running, but you can't keep up
So let me slow down for you
Baby what, say what you're looking for
I can give you, give you

I was walking and talking about this ...
I met out in Boston
I didn't see very often, but mmm huh, mmm huh
She gon' vote for obama, and she likes to dance with madonna
Chops a ? up like Betty Hanna, so mmm huh, mmm huh
We gon' hop in this hoopty, and she'll take me out to the movies
Let me feel all of her boobies, so mmm huh, mmm huh
Now she's touching my booty, and she's rolling up a black beauty
I'mma get to get to my duties, so mmm huh, mmm huh

Shady love, shady love, shady love...

I'm gonna get my shady love
I'm gonna get my shady love
Shady love, shady love
I'm gonna get my, I'm gonna get my, I'm gonna get my shady love
I'm gonna get my shady love
Shady love, shady love
I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna

One jock takes shows on top, when the chicks don't come
Get your man, cause he on my block
We fly cause the nips don't slip
When they flip them flips, do the dip cuz the beat don't stop
My tease, your skeeze, his knees
I pop that cork in his face then I just say 'cheese'
Got stack, got chips, got cheese
Watch them bubble up, double up
Baby come snuggle up, in the jacuzzi,
What you know 'bout the rub a dub?

Why so tough
You see me running, but you can't keep up
So let me slow down for you
Baby what, say what you're looking for
I can give you, give you

Shady love, shady love, shady love...
Shady love, shady love, shady love...

Why so tough
You see me running, but you can't keep up
So let me slow down for you
Baby what, say what you're looking for
I can give you, give you
