"Back That Up to the Beat" Thread


Recommended Posts

I love this! So much better than the demo. It's electro and poppy and tribal. It would sound out of place on the standard, but it's a grade A bop! Totally worth getting the 2CD deluxe, people.

Are the lyrics the same as the demo?

[Verse 1]
Keep on shining your
I'm getting ready for
Let this party go
I'll be back until

[Chorus]
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that down to the
Back that up to the

[Verse 2]
I'll be drinking cool rosé, sometimes lemon drops
I'll wearing diamond grills, and chasing thrills a lot
Now I know how freedom feels, I'm never going to stop
Keep this party going, we'll be dancing till we drop

[Interlude]
Do it

[Verse 3]
Leave them ready for
Guess I'm la-la-low
I'll keep dreaming of
They'll remember us
Means I'm ready for 
Move to the beat of the (drum)
Sway to the rhythm of (one)
Waving around like a

[Chorus]
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that down to the
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that down to the
Back that up to the

[Bridge]
I'll be drinking cool rosé, sometimes lemon drops
I'll wearing diamond grills, and chasing thrills a lot
Now I know how freedom feels, I'm never going to stop

Keep on shining your
I'm getting ready for
Let this falling go
I'll be back until
Leave them ready for
Means I'm ready for
Move to the beat of the
Sway to the rhythm of
Waving around like a

[Chorus]
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that down to the
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that down to the

Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that down to the
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that up to the
Back that down to the
Back that up to the

Out of the 3 bonus tracks this one is my favorite!

At first I was a bit taken aback because I did listen to the demo quite a lot and I actually really like it. After a couple listens though I think the official version is an improvement and definitely a lot more "layered". I love the flute and the kicked up bass. It does sound like the same vocals though which I think she could've have re-recorded or adjusted slightly on some parts. (A bit too high pitched but that's only a minor criticism.)

10/10 for me. Would've happily had this on the album proper.

Eh, not feeling it. I did enjoy the demo and I appreciate the take she did on this. Shame the "rat tat tat that tunga munga" bit didnt make it.

'tunga munga' wth?! Haha, I wish that was in every song on this album!

This is fantastic. Definitely deserved to be on the standard version, like in the place of batuka.

Bite your tongue! Batuka is a masterpiece! 😛

Yes I like Back That Up too, but I think it didn't fit the mood of the album. It would be fun of she performed this one live! It's a fun track for dancing!

So in the US where do I buy the version with this song ????? I cannot find it anywhere 

You can't (yet). You either buy the imports for the boxset or the 2CD deluxe.
