Here Are the Lyrics to Rosalia & Travis Scott's 'TKN' Translated to English

After hitting up the studio together more than a year ago, Rosalia and Travis Scott dropped their highly awaited collaboration, “TKN,” on Thursday (May 28).

Fusing Middle Eastern melodies with urban beats, the track is about a trustworthy and fierce leader. Scott brings his deep vocals to the tune, singing some lines in Spanish.

"I feel that now is the moment to release this song, after so many months of staying indoors, missing freedom, or being with people we love,” Rosalia said in a statement. “I hope 'TKN' gives you energy, makes you dance, and gives you strength if you’re going through difficult times. With all my love <3.”

The music video, directed by CANADA and shot in North Hollywood, Calif., in February, features both artists with a group of children as they take to the streets to start a dance revolution.

Family’s business you’re not supposed to listen
The bosses with the bosses and I'm the momma
The secrets only to who you can trust
You better not break the Omertà*
There are levels for everything in this life
We don't f--k with people we don’t know
No new friends, no new wounds
No new friends, no new wounds

TKN
TKN
TKN
No new friends, no new wounds
TKN
TKN
No new friends, no new wounds

Zoom in the face, Gaspar Noé
This doesn't shoot, I emptied it
VVS VVS dolce vita
My command is hard, dynamite
Tattooed feet to the neck
Dressed in black like Kika
VVS VVS dolce vita
My command is hard, dynamite

Milk with sugar
She has 'brazuca' measure
That mommy is a G (Yeah)

Yeah, she got hips I gotta grip for (Yeah)
A lot of a--, don't need to have more
I know it's sweet, I like that
Mmm (Straight up)
I got word that it's wet, well, let's drown
Toot it up, back it up, slap it down
Don't say a word of what you heard from when I came around (It's lit)
You get it first, you get this work right when you come in town (Yeah)
Need you right here (Yeah)
Know you the queen of givin' ideas
No more new friends, don't bring the hype here (Ooh)
Know you got problems with this, but it's not fair

Family’s business you’re not supposed to listen
The bosses with the bosses and I'm the momma
The secrets only to who you can trust
You better not break the Omertà*

TKN, TKN, TKN
TKN, TKN
no new friends, no new wounds

*OMERTÀ: The law of silence. A Sicilian code of honor that places importance on
silence in the face of questioning by authorities or outsiders.
