Pretty boy stay Oh you know that I long for ya When you’re all gone When you’re all gone Watcha gonna say I did every little line for ya Now they’re all gone Now they’re all gone It’s okay If you know something’s better for ya Oh the grass is always greener, greener I won’t fight if you know something’s better for ya Something’s better for ya Break my heart But you don’t break silence Say my name Baby it’s alright Break my heart But you don’t break silence Why you waiting Go on and say it Baby love why Are you breaking every damn mirror Are you bad luck Are you bad luck? Looking at the sky I just gotta see the world clearer Am I too fucked Am I too fucked?

Woke up in the morning Stumblin’ out This headache is just killing me Got to shake it out This traffic’s taking too long Will I be on time? Can’t help but think of last night When everything felt right Everything Felt Right Last night we were dancin’ Barely knew your name Something in the way we’re movin’ Did you feel the same? I saw a bit of sparkle In those dark brown eyes I can feel you next to me Everything felt right

Talk that talk that makes me want to say Hey! Since when were you my baby? It’s great, Being someone headstrong Who doesn’t need no mate Lately it seems that the door to my heart Has been unlocked But I assure you that it’s closed when Opportunity knocks Time and time again, people try to be my man Think I’m a princess who needs saving But boy, I am about creating I am lady, hear me roar I am both strong and I am sore Love myself and that’s a voc Don’t underestimate me now I don’t have any hard feelings Against you or anything you do It might just be for the best If you put your princely act to rest Baby baby, wanna make you see To the best of my ability That I believe in being free Cause it's so much fun, you know being me! Oh oh, Don't want you to be my boyfriend Oh oh, Cause the whole world knows I don’t need a man Oh oh, Thanks for the offer boy But I can manage here on out (Rap) Let’s see, It isn’t hard to believe That I really don’t wear my heart on my sleeve Just breathe, baby boy you’ll be okay Cause in the end you know I’d prolly leave anyway No hard feelings, but I’m doing just fine I’m an independent lady living life on my own time I’m fine so don’t worry about a thing Do you cause boo, I don’t need no fling

about

Much had changed since Mark Redito’s last full length “Desire”. The unexpected success of his debut album, the life on the road, and the launch of his own concert series, Likido, had him landing in a place that was worlds apart from “Desire” days when he started working on his latest release Neutropical.

“Back then, I was literally a bedroom musician, I was staying at my sister’s place not quite sure of where my life was headed,” recollects Redito. “I always imagined that if I became a full time musician and started touring and collaborating with talented musicians, the whole process would just get easier. I thought that with experience there would be this sense of confidence.”

“I was wrong,” Redito admits. His admission of insecurity and limitation paradoxically freed him to find his new path. “I found that you can't do everything you want to; and sometimes you don't become who you think you'll be. You have to forgive yourself in order to move forward. You have to allow yourself the grace and humility to acknowledge who you are. And that's ok.”

Redito’s revelation ultimately led him to reassess his writing process and led him to the discovery of Tropical Futurism, a cultural aesthetic inspired by Afro-Futurism. Redito pays respect to the island culture he grew up with and finds hope in the culture’s resilience despite its past oppressions and hardships. Neutropical is a hopeful vision of the future that puts the island culture and values front and center. All the while journaling the personal journey of where he was, where he is, and where he is headed.
