Contemporary R&B singer Mila J, a Los Angeles native born of black, Japanese, and Native American descent, released her ‘213’ EP back in June of 2016. Since then, the sixth track, ‘Friend Zone’, which also appeared on Mila’s previously released mixtape called ‘The Waiting Game’, is standing the test of time. ‘Friend Zone’ contains an interpolation of ‘Anywhere’, a hit-song by ‘90s R&B group 112.
Now see normally, I do not do this sh*t / But ooh, I’m so ready to do your sh*t / Throw it back for ya ‘cause you know the deal / When I hit ya back with that Netflix and chill, yeah, let me tell you how I want it / Tell you just the way to hit when you tryna push up on it / I ain’t tryna hear you tell me that you’re coming / ‘Cause I’m tryna go for rounds and then end it in the morning / We ain’t gotta cuddle, that ain’t really been my thang / I already fell it gripping ni^^a in my ring / I see you wanted me, ain’t gotta play no games / And normally we take this sober but so you know
Ride these hips like some handle bars / Do it on top of the car / No matter baby, I don’t care / We can f*ck anywhere / Ride these hips like some handle bar / Do it on top of the car / No matter baby, I don’t care / We can f*ck anywhere / We can do it in the bed, on the floor / We can do it in the shower, we can do it with the lights on / We can do it in kitchen, or the car / Put my panties to the side, I’m tryna take you out the friend zone
