¿Qué pasó contigo? Dímelo
O-O-Ovy on the Drums! (Mmm)

Ya no tiene excusa (No, no)
Hoy salió con su amiga disque pa' matar la tusa (Ah, tusa)
Que porque un hombre le pagó mal (Ah)
Está dura y abusa (Eh)
Se cansó de ser buena
Ahora es ella quien los usa (Hmm-mm)
Que porque un hombre le pagó mal (Mal)
Ya no se le ve sentimental (-tal)
Dice que por otro man no llora, no (Llora)

Pero si le ponen la canción (Hmm)
Le da una depresión tonta
Llorando lo comienza a llamar
Pero él la dejó en buzón (No)
¿Será porque con otra está (Con otra está)
Fingiendo que a otra se puede amar?

Pero diste todo este llanto por nada
Ahora soy una chica mala
And now you kickin' and screamin', a big toddler
Don't try to get your friends to come holla, holla
Ayo, I used to lay low
I wasn't in the clubs, I was on my J.O (Woop-woop)
Until I realized you a epic fail
So don't tell your guys that I'm still your bae, yo (Ah!)
'Cause it's a new day, I'm in a new place (Aha)
Gettin' some new D, sittin' on a new face (Okay)
'Cause I know I'm the baddest bitch that you ever really met (Woop)
You searchin' for a badder bitch, and you ain't met her yet (Woop)
Ayo! Tell 'em to back off
He wanna slack off
Ain't no more booty calls, you gotta jack off
It's me and Karol G, we let them rats talk
Don't run up on us, 'cause they lettin' the MACs off

Pero si le ponen la canción (Hmm)
Le da una depresión tonta
Llorando lo comienza a llamar
Pero él la dejó en buzón (No)
¿Será porque con otra está (Con otra está)
Fingiendo que a otra se puede amar?

Eh, ah
Un-un shot pa' la pena profunda (Un shot, eh)
Y seguimo' gastando la funda (La funda)
Otro shot pa' la mente (Yeah-yeh)
Pa' que el recuerdo no la atormente (Ah, oh)
Ya no le copia nada (Na')
Su ex ya no vale nada (Nada)
Se va pa' la disco y sólo quiere perrear (Perrear)
Pero se confunde cuando empieza a tomar (Tomar)
Ella se cura con rumba (Ah)
Y el amor pa' la tumba (Yeh)
To' los hombre' le zumban (Le zumban)

Pero si le ponen la canción (Oh)
Le da una depresión tonta (Tonta)
Llorando lo comienza a llamar
Pero él la dejó en buzón (Oh)
¿Será porque con otra está (Con otra está)
Fingiendo que a otra se puede amar?

Ey, Karol G (Ajá, Karol G)
Nicki Minaj (Ah, ajá), ey
"The Queen" with "The Queen" (Ajá, jajaja)
