You see me here
On that stage
You see me singing
Out my heart
In my heels
And my leather
You probably think "OMG Who is this bitch"
Well let me tell you
It's H Fasesha
I got a kid at home
With my husband
Just to be in the position that I'm in
Bitches be like "Oh, I wanna be like Gaga"
"Or maybe even Rapsta, she's currently #1"
Young Prince makes guys wanna be him
And his sister makes the girl her age
Jealous and believing.
Eyes on Amara
They L-O-V-E you
Jane Mik is climbing up the charts
Girls and boys wanna be us
They like "I wanna be, I wanna be a queen"
Loud is getting
Girls are wishing
They could be
With the tracks
That make everyone turn up the sterio
Well I'mma tell you
It's really tough
You gotta chose between family or career
But if you want it
So fucking bad
Then it's your decision
Go with your day job
Is coming out very very soon
I'm not like "Gimme your money"
I just wanna be a, wanna be a queen, (just wanna be a queen)
Let me get the sells
Let me get the #1 albums
Let me be the one girls wanna be
I just wanna be
(wanna be a queen)
A lyric video for the song was released on May 18, 2014, the lyric video featured a dark background while the lyrics were written in gold paint. The full 7-minute music video premiered the next day. The music video went viral in the 24 hours it was released, everyone tweeted their congratulations to Helena on how her video went viral. As of May 30, 2014 it is Helena Fasesha's highest viewed video. By June 14 her video reached the top of the itunes charts for music videos, and got more views than Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance".
The video begins with Fasesha reading reports calling her "irrelavent" and "too child friendly". They are all criticizing the fact that Fasesha's debut album was focused more on synthpop. Helena then gets on her computer and tweets "I'm coming back with a bad bitch attitude #QUEEN" Helena leaves the room when her baby is heard crying in the background.
The song then starts as Fasesha sings on a throne surrounded by dancers lying on the ground. Fasesha sings her verse while smoking a cigar. When the chorus begins Fasesha and her dancers get up and perform a slow but brilliant dance. It then shifts to Helena getting her image out there by dressing up in different clothing and wearing a grill. The chorus shows Helena wearing a grill that says "#QUEEN" on it while she projects the words "#1", "L-O-V-E", "Everest" and "Queen" on the screen. During the bridge Helena enters a party in a ballgown, before the instrumental break hits and she tears the ballgown to reveal a more revealing outfit. Helena then stares at the ballroom when she steps outside, and it catches fire. The chorus comes on again twice as Helena performs another dance with the same dancers outside the burning ballroom. The video ends as the next day Helena returnes to the site and spraypaints the word "Queen" on a piece of burned down wall, before she sets the spraycan alight, and due to it being flamable, the rubble catches fire. And Helena leaves carrying the piece of wall with her. The single cover pops up before it burns out and the video finishes.
