Family, a lot of thankfulness and a bit of reflection.
Those are the topics that make up the verses in Dej Loaf's new holiday tune "All I Want for Christmas," and she recruited Kodak Black to help her out.
From the very start of the song, the Detroit rapper explains that she doesn't need anything material this year and just wants to be surrounded by loved ones. Dej also remembers being a youngster on Christmas Day and not being appreciative of what her mom did for her.
"Don't worry 'bout me, got plenty of material things / Got my brothers, got my sisters, got my team / All I need is my family / I say my past ain't like my presents / Momma come downstairs, open up your presents / Working all them hours trying to make it special / I was ungrateful, I ain't know no better," she raps.Kodak rhymes next, and although he may not be the first person you think of when it comes to being on a warm, family-friendly Christmas song, his verse comes off totally sincere.
"And all I wanted for Christmas was to be here / Now I'm hoping I could spend it with you this year / God Bless me with a talent, gotta make it happen / You see this rap shit is my gift, I gotta unwrap it," he spits.On her SoundCloud page, Dej said wanted to give her fans something different for the holiday season, something that people could enjoy and make them feel good.
"I thought it would be dope to get Kodak Black on this record, so I reached out, and he was with it," she wrote. "So we put together something special for you. This is such a special time of the year. The time when you get to express gratitude and show love so that's what we did. I hope ya'll enjoy it. Happy holidays."You can listen to the new song below.
