Karol G & Nicki Minaj, "Tusa"

Karol G has once again dropped an empowering anthem for the ladies, and this time, she joined forces with Nicki Minaj for “Tusa.”

In the song, the Colombian artist sings about a girl who thinks she’s over her ex but gets really sad whenever she hears the song that reminds her of him. Nicki’s rap verses, on the other hand, assures the ex that it’s his loss and now she’s moved on.

In an interview with Billboard, Karol G explained that “Tusa” is Colombian slang for heartache. As for how to get over that “tusa,” she says she has the technique down to a science: “First and foremost, work out. Look awesome so he eats his heart out the next time he sees you.”

Check out the full lyrics translated to English below:

What’s going on with you? .... Tell me
Ovy on the Drums

There is no excuse
Today she went out with her friend to kill her heartbreak
Because a guy did her wrong
She’s hard and he took advantage
She’s tired of being good
Now she’s the one that uses men
Because a guy did her wrong
You won’t find her being sentimental
Says she won’t cry for another guy
No

But if you play the song
She gets so depressed
Crying she starts calling him
But he sent her to voicemail
Maybe he’s with another girl
Pretending he can love her too

But I cried all of that for nothing
Now I’m a bad girl
And now you kickin' & screamin', a big toddler
Don’t try to get your friends to come holla, holla!
A yo! I used to lay low
I wasn’t in the clubs, I was on my JO
Until I realized you’re an epic fail
So don’t tell your guys that I’m still your bae yo
Cause it’s a new day, I’m in a new place
Getting some new D, sittin' on a new face
Cause I know I’m the baddest bitch you ever really met
You searching for a badder bitch and you ain't met her yet.

A yo Tell em to back off he wanna slack off
Ain't no more booty calls, you gotta jack off
It’s me and Karol G we let them rats talk
Don’t run up on us cause they letting them Makks off

But if you play the song
She gets so depressed
Crying she starts calling him
But he sent her to voicemail
Maybe he’s with another girl
Pretending he can love her too

One shot for the deep heartbreak
And we keep going until we finish
Another shot for my mind
So that the memories don’t torture me
Doesn’t copy anything
Her ex is worth nothin'
Goes out to the club and just wants to twerk
But she gets confused once she starts to drink
She heals when she parties
As her love dies
All the men try to get her

But if you play the song
She gets so depressed
Crying she starts calling him
But he sent her to voicemail
Maybe he’s with another girl
Pretending he can love her too
