about

Ice Tha One, emcee, singer, and songwriter, might be based in Toronto, but her heart travelled to Illinois, where she found herself enamoured with Chicago. Chi-Town displays her diverse vocal talent, blending decidedly urban hip-hop sound with moody vocals sung on beat as dirty and beautifully uplifting as life itself. It’s an outreach for beauty found in discomfort. It’s a conversation with deserted alleyways with open spaces in the back of one’s mind. Ice calls out her name, asserting herself, taking a stand amidst what nature managed to squeeze in between the skyscrapers. Peep the full video here: bit.ly/chi-town_official-video

lyrics

Played my part, that’s how it started out, you was running game and running your mouth
And I already knew you had someone at home and I already knew you wanted to move on
That look in your eye smile on your face, won’t you come my way
Wore my heart on my sleeve since the very first day had me feeling ways
How could I resist no, with just one kiss I was speechless
And now the regrets stacking up, you out here trying to test me calling my bluff
My name is ICE, did you catch that, said my name is Ice Tha One, oh oh, show nuff
Don’t fake, don’t front stand behind everything I say
See we got problems when I have to question your loyalty
Just remember what I told you, I’m a woman of my word till the end boo

Broke my heart, Chicago
Had me messed up, Chicago
On my own, Chicago
Took my dreams, Chicago
Lost myself, Chicago
Didn’t know what to do, Chicago
Praying to the sky, Chicago
Saying lord please help me, Chicago

Crossing at the light and I yelled out hi
Couldn't take the risk of you passing me by
But if you got the time to know me
I could show you things that you only dreamed
Imma keep it real you set my soul on fire, from the first time your lips touched mine
Where you at where you at when you ain’t around me
How can I make it so I’m in the same place you be
Damn you had me tripping, had me slipping, had me bugging
Wish I could rewind back time, thought you was down but you wasn’t
If you had kept it real from the jump, huh, could have skipped all the drama
We could have all had some fun, if out the gate you kept it one hundred
See now you got me on my on to the next one
And I done seen your bitch, hell yea I was an upgrade whoa
But the truth of the matter is you done lost your golden ticket, your ride or die
Middle finger to the sky, bragging to your friends once upon a time you hit it

Broke my heart, Chicago
Had me messed up, Chicago
On my own, Chicago
Took my dreams, Chicago
Lost myself, Chicago
Didn’t know what to do, Chicago
Praying to the sky, Chicago
Saying lord please help me, Chicago

All this time that I thought we was cool but all this time I was wrong I was foolish
Had me fucked up, had me head a tear had me wilding out
That ain’t my shit that ain’t my style not how I get down
You already know I represent the Tdot
Pushing these tracks like I’m riding round in a V-dot
You played me but I know everything, I be out here hustling, we be out here getting it
Yeah I’m from the north but chi-town you was raised on
Two different cities, two different worlds, two different countries but I’m not that girl

Broke my heart, Chicago
Had me messed up, Chicago
On my own, Chicago
Took my dreams, Chicago
Lost myself, Chicago
Didn’t know what to do, Chicago
Praying to the sky, Chicago
Saying lord please help me, Chicago
