About Rocket

"Rocket" is a song by American recording artist Beyoncé from her fifth studio album, Beyoncé (2013). It was written by Miguel, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon and Beyoncé with the group of the latter three people also serving as its producers. Miguel initially conceived the song inspired by Beyoncé, trying to showcase her confidence and sexuality. Beyoncé revealed that "Rocket" was inspired by D'Angelo's "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" (2000) and felt it was one of her liberating songs meant to illustrate different sides of her personality. "Rocket" is a slowtempo soul, funk and R&B ballad which was frequently compared to the music of D'Angelo and Prince. It features explicit and metaphorical lyrics discussing frank female sexuality, a prominent theme present on Beyoncé. Lyrically, it sees Beyoncé addressing a male partner through sexual innuendos, adopting soft and sensual vocals. A music video for the song was directed by Beyoncé, Ed Burke and Bill Kirstein and released through Beyoncé itself on December 13, 2013. It was shot at The Standard, High Line hotel, New York City in black-and-white using a slow motion technique and features various shots of the singer, who appears dressed in lingerie for most of the time. Many critics considered it to be one of the most erotic clips on the entire album and praised its filming technique. At the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Beyoncé performed "Rocket" during a medley consisting of songs from her fifth studio album. It was also a part of the setlist during The Formation World Tour (2016).

Let me sit this ass
On you
Show you how I feel
Let me take this off
Will you watch me
Yes, mass appeal
Don't take your eyes
Don't take your eyes off it
Watch it, babe
If you like
You can touch me baby
Do you
Do you wanna touch me baby, ooh
Grab a hold, don't let go
Let me know
That you
Ready (ready)

I just wanna show you now
Slow it down
Go around
You rock hard
I rock steady

And rock right up to the side of my mountain
Climb until you reach my peak baby, peak babe, peak
And reach right into the bottom of my fountain
I wanna play in your deep baby, your deep baby, deep
Then dip me under where you can feel my river flowing and flow
Hold me 'til I scream for air to breathe
And wash me over until my well runs dry
Send all your sins all over me, babe, me baby, me

Rock it 'til waterfalls
Rock it 'til waterfalls
Rock it 'til waterfalls
Bathe in these waterfalls

I do it like it's my profession
I gotta make a confession
I'm proud of all this bass
When you put it in your face
By the way, if you need a personal trainer or a therapist
I can be a piece of sunshine, inner peace, entertainer
Anything else that you may read between the lines
You and I create rockets and waterfalls

So rock right up to the side of my mountain
Climb until you reach my peak baby, peak babe, peak
And reach right into the bottom of my fountain
I wanna play in your deep baby, your deep baby, deep
Then dip me under where you can feel my river flowing flow
Hold me 'til I scream for air to breathe
And wash me over until my well runs dry
Send all your sins all over me babe, me

Hard, rock, stead, rock, hard, rock, steady
Rock, hard rock, steady, rock, hard, rock, steady

Don't you know that I give you the loving if you need it
I give you my word, you can believe it
Your love feels like, all four seasons
Growing inside me, life has a reason 
Swimming and my love and your love lifting
Higher, harder
Got me screaming to the lord, boy, kiss me
Pray we don't overflow
Baby I know you can feel it pulse
Keeping the peak of my waterfall
Rock it, baby, rock it, baby, rock it 'til the water falls
Damn

I can't help but love the way we make love
Daddy, daddy
Ooh child, ooh now
Yes, Lord, damn baby
You driving me cray, cray, yeah

You ain't right for doing it to me like that daddy
Even though
I've been a bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad girl
Tell me what you're gonna do about that
Punish me please
Punish me please
Daddy what you're going to do with all of this
Ass
All up in your face, yeah
Hell yeah
Love me so deep
Ooh my shit's so good it ain't even right
I know I'm right
Hell yeah you the shit
That's why you're my equivalent
So sexy

We're so much more than pointless fixtures
Instagram pictures, consumers
What about that ching-ching-ching
What about that, what about that ching-ching
Baby boomers (baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby)
Cyclical trends, tryna fit in
Home is where the heart is
God damn it, I'm comfortable in my skin
And you're comfortable in my skin
You look so comfortable in my skin (skin, skin, skin)
Rockets and waterfalls
