TBT : Don't Matter de Akon

Rédigé par

1.06.2017

En 2006, Akon sort l’album Konvicted, un opus truffé de tubes. Parmi les singles, on retrouve la chanson Don’t Matter, une balade romantique où Akon déclare sa flemme et sa volonté de se battre pour le droit d’aimer.

Akon s’appuie sur Bob Marley

Le titre Don’t Matter est l’un des plus gros succès d’Akon, puisqu’il s’est classé n°1 du Billboard Hot 100. Si la chanson a tant plu, c’est peut-être parce qu’elle contient un sample d’un titre de Bob Marley. Il s’agit de la chanson Zimbabwe datant de 1979. Et comme si un sample ne suffisait pas, on peut entendre le tube Ignition (Remix) de R. Kelly. Quant au clip, il a été tourné sur la plage et colle parfaitement à la rythmique tropicale de la fin de la chanson.

Paroles Don’t Matter de Akon


Konvict Konvict
Oh
Ohoohwooe
Oooh
Ooohhwooe
[Chorus:]
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you babe babe
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you babe
‘Cause we gonna fight
Oh yes we gonna fight
Believe we gonna fight
We gonna fight
Fight for our right to love yeah
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you
Nobody wanna see us together
Nobody thought we’d last forever
I feel ’em hopin’ and prayin’
Things between us don’t get better
Men steady comin’ after you
Women steady comin’ after me
Seem like everybody wanna go for self
And don’t wanna respect boundaries
Tellin’ you all those lies
Just to get on your side
But I must admit there was a couple secrets
I held inside
But just know that I tried
To always apologize
And I’ma have you first always in my heart
To keep you satisfied
[Chorus]
Got every right to wanna leave
Got every right to wanna go
Got every right to hit the road
And never talk to me no more
You don’t even have to call
Even check for me at all
Because the way I been actin’ lately
Has been off the wall
Especially towards you
Puttin’ girls before you
And they watchin’ everything I been doin’
Just to hurt you
Most of it just ain’t true
Ain’t true
And they won’t show you
How much of a queen you are to me
And why I love you baby
[Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh
‘Cause I got you
‘Cause I got you
Oh
‘Cause I got you babe
‘Cause I got you
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you babe
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you babe
‘Cause we gonna fight
Oh yes we gonna fight
Believe we gonna fight
We gonna fight
Fight for our right to love yeah
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you babe
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you babe
‘Cause we gonna fight
Oh yes we gonna fight
Believe we gonna fight
We gonna fight
Fight for our right to love yeah
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don’t matter no
‘Cause I got you
