Bad To Me: inside the lyrics and their meaning

Bad To Me is a song about a passional relationship between the rapper and his girl. In the song, WizKid sings the attraction he feels, describing the connection with her body in the form of addiction: the rapper always wants more, he has migraine if he cannot have her, and if wishes this passion will last for a long time, not just for one night.

The perfect connection is clear from these lines:

Lose my way, oh
This kind, this kind love, yeah
Wey dey make me want more, woah
Come my way, oh
This kind, this kind love, yeah
I dey want for the night
Make I know how you feel, how you want

When the pleasure you have is never enough, when you always want more, it becomes clear that we are experiencing the effects of a crush. And from WizKid’s words, it seems clear that the two feel the same; they know what the other one wants. That means complicity and shared passion.

The addiction is even mentioned in the chorus, where it’s clear that the two feel the same emotions for each other: feelings made of physical love, as also the song’s mood proves.

Lady, girl, say your body bad to me
Pass make I choke, make I feel am, oh
Baby girl, you know as e be, oh
Yeah, we dey love till the morning
Bad girl addicted to me
Only you know as e dey do me
Only you know as e dey do me, oh-woah, girl

WizKid sees their relationship as a safety net for her: he has money and wishes that money will no longer be a problem for her now that he’s there. In the past, the girl worked hard to make some money, and now Wizkid wants to provide safety for her. And build a relationship where there are only the two of them, no one else involved.

All for you baby
If that money dey too much say make you talk
Cause you know the money long, ooh, yeah
Break your back with it
Yeah, na me and you dey talk, no one involved
Baby girl, make I indulge you, yeah

As the album title confirms, Wizkid is therefore experiencing a new phase of his life, more dedicated to love and others and less egotistical. More Love, Less Ego. And this is also the real meaning of the lyrics inside Bad To Me: I want this love to grow, and last, I want to be here for everything we need; and I want this addicting passion I have for your body never to end.
