About Diva

"Diva" is a song by American singer and songwriter Beyoncé. The song was written and produced by Knowles, Shondrae "Bangladesh" Crawford, and Sean Garrett for the singer's third studio album I Am... Sasha Fierce (2008). It was released as the album's third overall single in the United States alongside the third international single "Halo". "Diva" is an R&B song, which is set in a hip hop groove, and carries a stuttering beat. Its lyrics deliver messages of independence and female empowerment. The song boasts a beat and a bassline similar to those of another Bangladesh 2008 production, "A Milli" by American rapper, Lil' Wayne; critics coined "Diva" as a "female companion" to the latter. "Diva" received mixed to positive reviews from critics, who had polarized opinions concerning its affiliation with "A Milli". Despite being released to rhythmic and urban radios only in the US, the song peaked at number 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, topped the US Hot Dance Club Play chart, and attained a peak position of number three on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. "Diva" was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), denoting shipment of 500,000 copies. Although it was only officially released in the US, the song appeared on the singles charts in Australia, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

Stop the track; let me state facts
I told you give me a minute and I'll be right back
Fifty million 'round the world and they said that I couldn't get it
I done got so sick and filthy with Benj's I can't spend
How you gone be talking shit? You act like I just got up in it
Been the number one diva in this game for a minute
I know you read the paper, the one that they call a queen
Every radio 'round the world know me 'cause that's where I be

When he pull up, wanna pop my hood up
Bet he better have a six pack in the cooler
Getting money--divas getting money
If you ain't getting money, then you ain't got nothing for me
Tell me something (tell me something)
Where your boss at? (where your boss at?)
Where my ladies up in there that like to talk back? (that like to talk back)
I wanna see ya (I wanna see ya)
I'd like to meet ya (I'd like to meet her)
What you said? (Not to me)
She ain't no diva (she ain't no diva)

Na, na, na, diva is a female version of a hustler
Of a hustler
Of a, of a hustler
Na, na, na, diva is a female version of a hustler
Of a hustler
Of a, of a hustler

Since fifteen in my stilettos been strutting in this game
What's your age was the question they asked when I hit the stage
I'm a diva; best believe her; you see her; she getting paid
She ain't calling him to greet her; don't need him--her bed's made

This is a stick up, stick up
I need them bags of that money
A stick up, stick up
You see them; ask 'em where that money
All my ladies get it up
I see you, I do the same
Take it to another level
No passengers on my plane

I'm-a, I'm-a a diva (hey)
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva (hey)
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva (hey)
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva

This is a stick up, stick up
I need them bags of that money
Stick up, stick up
You see 'em; ask where that money

Na, na, na, diva is a female version of a hustler
Of a hustler
Of a, of a hustler
Na, na, na, diva is a female version of a hustler
Of a hustler
Of a, of a hustler

I'm-a, I'm-a a diva
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva
I'm-a, I'm-a a diva
