Rootfire World Premiere: HIRIE “I Wanna Be”

HIRIE has been burning bright since 2013, when her infectious single, “Sensi Boy,” with its herb-coated hook, was passed from stereo to stereo throughout the scene. Instead of fading away HIRIE took her music to the road touring months on end, from acoustic performances on cruise ships, to guerrilla sets at festival lots, the live show became a priority and the country responded. Going into her second album, HIRIE is digging deeper into songwriting and production, enlisting the help of A grade producers like Jamaica’s Don Corleon, who co-produced her latest single “I Wanna Be.” If HIRIE is able to record an album, that in her own words is “super heady, [with] lots of drum and bass, lots of dub sections,” blended with her naturally accessible pop-reggae hooks, I believe that she could create an album that’s integrity rises the tide for a scene that she has kept her feet grounded in since day one. Rootfire has supported many music related Kickstarter campaigns over the years, but none have touched our core more than this one, inspiring the “what ifs” where others have fallen short.

Give HIRIE’s new song “I Wanna Be” (from her forthcoming yet to be recorded album) a listen and check out the project’s Kickstarter video below. If it triggers something inside you, spread the word and get HIRIE.

♫ Lyrics:

I wanna be your everything and more
I wanna be your everything and more

Tell me if it’s wrong, tell me if its right
Tell me how the butterflies crawl when we kiss good night
And you can tell how it feels to hold my hand
Cuz I won’t be giving to you no one night stand
I am a woman with a strong sense of value
Ask me about it and I’ll be about you
I find you charming and I know that you’re top shelf
I say the same about myself

I wanna be, I wanna be your
Everything you wish, everything you wish for
I wanna be, I wanna be your
Everything you wish, everything you wish for
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be your
I wanna be your everything you ever wished for
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be your
I wanna be your everything you ever wished for
I wanna be your everything and more
I wanna be your everything and more

Leave me in a trance leave me in abyss
Leave me with the thought of what could be, without actually performing it
I got a feeling you like how I mess around
You don’t mind waiting for what’s bound
So love me, love me, love me, love me, baby
Let’s lose control
Can you love me, love me, love me, love me, baby
I want it, I want it, you got it, you got it!

I wanna be, I wanna be your
Everything you wish, everything you wish for
I wanna be, I wanna be your
Everything you wish, everything you wish for
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be your
I wanna be your everything you ever wished for
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be your
I wanna be your everything you ever wished for
I wanna be your everything and more
I wanna be your everything and more

I wanna be, I wanna be your
Everything you wish, everything you wish for
I wanna be, I wanna be your
Everything you wish, everything you wish for
I wanna be, I wanna be your
Everything you wish, everything you wish for
I wanna be, I wanna be your
Everything you wish, everything you ever wished for

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be your
I wanna be your everything you ever wished for
