Backin' It Up

Pardison Fontaine

Backin' It Up Lyrics

[Intro: Pardison Fontaine & Cardi B]
Ahhh
Cardi!
Turn around, fuck it all the way up
Bust it down, turn around, fuck it all the way up
Bust it down, turn around, fuck it—look

[Verse 1: Pardison Fontaine]
Let's get it straight, girl, you don't need a nigga for nothin'
Lookin' better every day, you got that Benjamin Button
Claimin' he don't got a girl, you know niggas be frontin'
You don't need no bitch comin' up to you as a woman (Ayy)
And you a boss, so you hate when niggas waste time (Ayy)
You too pretty to be paused on the FaceTime (Ayy)
Damn, I'm just statin' the facts

You hate that like you hate when niggas tell you, "Relax"
What the fuck you mean, "Relax"?
You want somethin' more than just physical (Word)
It's been a while since you met someone original (Word)
You spend your time drinkin' wine in your livin' room
All that good pussy, can't find the one to give it to (What?)
Issa, issa shame (issa shame)

You see me, see the squad, issa gang (Issa gang)
You see him, issa bum, issa lame (Issa lame)

But issa difference 'tween me and what's-his-name (Ayy)
I swear to God, word to Mase (Ayy)
I'ma drink this Henny to the face (Ayy)
Fuck a condom, I'ma bring Saran Wrap
I can't let no good pussy go to waste (Ayy)


[Chorus: Pardison Fontaine & Cardi B]
Back, back-backin' it up
I'm the king of talkin' shit, then backin' it up (Ayy)

Back, back-backin' it up
Throw that shit over here, girl, that's what it's for (What you say?)
You know how to go and get a bag, don't you? (Ayy)
You know how to make a bitch mad, don't you (Ayy)
Make your ex wanna get it back, that's a fact
Say it louder for the bitches in the back (Ayy)
I know how to go and get a bag, don't I (Don't I)
I know how to get a bitch mad, don't I (
Yeah)
Make my ex wanna get it back, that's a fact
Say it louder for the bitches in the back (Ayy)
Back, back-backin' it up
I'm the queen of talkin' shit, then I'm backin' it up (Yeah)
Back, back-backin' it up

Throw that money over here, nigga, that's what it's for (What you say?)

[Verse 2: Cardi B]
Look, said I was gettin' some head, get-gettin' some head
Ran down on a bitch, she almost pissed on her leg
Bitches think they fuckin' with me, must be sick in the head
Why don't you chill with the beef and get some chicken instead?
Got the crown, shut it down, have them hype up in the 6
If she dead, let her lay won't bring no life into this bitch
Lookin' this good should be a sin, you should call me cinnamon
Cardi B, bad bitch, those is fuckin' synonyms
We see who winnin' (See who winnin'), we see who got it (See who got it)
You see I'm still in the bank makin' deposits (Cash)
You see who switched up sides and who was solid (Who was solid)
You see who stuck to the code and who forgot it
Talk about it, bitch

[Chorus: Pardison Fontaine & Cardi B]
You know how to go and get a bag, don't you? (Ayy)
You know how to make a bitch mad, don't you (Ayy)
Make your ex wanna get it back, that's a fact
Say it louder for the bitches in the back (Ayy)
I know how to go and get a bag, don't I (Don't I)
I know how to get a bitch mad, don't I (Yeah)
Make my ex wanna get it back, that's a fact
Say it louder for the bitches in the back (Ayy)

Back, back-backin' it up
I'm the king of talkin' shit, then backin' it up (Ayy)
Back, back-backin' it up
Throw that shit over here, girl, that's what it's for (What you say?)

About “Backin' It Up”

(Unreviewed)

Backin it up

  • How did the song come about?

    Pardison Fontaine:

    I remember just hearing the beat from J-Louis, and they was playing me some of his beats, and I was like, “Nah. I need that one immediately,” so I just got to recording. Before I knew it, I had a little concept. I’m like, “Oh, this is gonna be something hard,” so I shot it over to Cardi, she was messing with it, and she was even pregnant at the time, you know what I’m saying? And she still knocked out the verse. Like, you really gon' body me on my own record? On my own record? She came off crazy. She had a whole energy with her. It was just phenomenal. I think we really complement each other, but just mad fire emojis I sent her back.
    And then we wound up getting the video shot within, like, within a month, and we just had it.

  • What was your songwriting process like?

    Pardison Fontaine:

    I think the chorus came first. I don’t normally freestyle too much of nothing. I like to take time with it, you know what I’m saying? I got a message. So, I really sat there and I came up with the chorus and then my verse.

  • What inspired this song?

    Pardison Fontaine:

    It’s hard to be a girl, you know what I’m sayin'? It’s hard to be a woman, and we live in a day where don’t nobody give them nothing, you know what I mean? I talk to dudes all the time. They be like, “Nah, I ain’t give her no money. I ain’t pay for her shoes.” It’s like, “I ain’t give her no Uber.” You know what I’m sayin'? Dudes take, take, take, so why not give ‘em one?

  • What's it like working with Cardi B?

    Pardison Fontaine:

    The stuff that she’s able to do across the board, you know what I’m sayin'? Like, my record gets back to her roots. Her street record, her goody side, and it allowed that, because you gotta think about everything else she got. She getting Maroon 5 looks, Bruno Mars looks. You know what I’m sayin'? So this was one that just gave her that opportunity to “ugh” all over again. I think people really love that. But she really is shocking how she can do both. Across the board.
