About Soldier

"Soldier" is a song by American girl group Destiny's Child, featuring American rappers T. I. and Lil Wayne, from Destiny's Child's fourth studio album Destiny Fulfilled (2004). Columbia Records released "Soldier" as the second single from Destiny Fulfilled on November 5, 2004. The trio, Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, co-wrote the song with Sean Garrett and Rich Harrison; the latter co-produced it with Knowles. A Southern hip hop mid-tempo song, it lyrically describes each member's favorite type of male love interest. "Soldier" received mostly positive reviews from music critics, who praised its composition and the trio's vocal performances, but criticized the lyrical content. The song received a nomination in the category for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards and won a Best R&B/Soul Single by a Group, Band or Duo award at the 2005 Soul Train Music Awards. A commercial success, "Soldier" peaked within the top-five in six European countries and in Australia, further being certified Gold in the latter region. In the United States, it peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and topped the Dance Club Songs chart, further receiving a Platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Hey

The way you got it, I'm the hottest around
They'll know it when they see you rollin' impala's around
(I got a Soldier!)
With the top down feeling the sounds
Quakin' and vibratin' your thighs ridin' harder than guys
Wit the chrome wheels at the bottom, white leather inside
When them lames be spittin' at you tell 'em don't even try it
To shot it wit Chelle and kick it wit Kelly or holla at be
Ya, gotta be g's you way outta your league

We like dem boys that be in them lac's leanin' (leanin')
Open their mouth their grill gleamin' (gleamin')

A rude boy that's good to me, with street credibility

If his status ain't hood

Betta be street if he lookin' at me

That ain't scared to stand up for me
Known to carry big things
If you know what I mean
If his status ain't hood

Betta be street if he looking at me

That ain't scared to stand up for me
Gotta know to get dough
And he betta be street

We like them boys up top from the BK (BK)

Always ridin' big on the freeway (freeway)
(With that east coast slang that us country girls we like)
Low cut ceasers wit the deep waves (deep waves)
So quick to snatch up your Beyonce (Beyonce)
Always comin' down poppin' our way (our way)

Next to the speakers keep a toy in the trunk of the 'lac
A reformed D boy use to run into traps
Still a soldier do to war if you running your trap
About my girls ain't no thing to put you under the map

Walk the streets five deep with nothing less than a stack
And 80 carats on my chest provides a special attraction
50 G's in my jeans plus the dough from the waller
It's the reason I'm the king girl, I know what you like

If his status ain't hood
I ain't checkin' for him
Betta be street if he lookin' at me
I need a soldier
That ain't scared to stand up for me
Known to carry big things
If you know what I mean
If his status ain't hood
I ain't checkin' for him
Betta be street if he looking at me
I need a soldier
That ain't scared to stand up for me
Gotta know to get dough
And he betta be street

I like them boys over there they looking strong tonight (strong tonight)
Just might give one the phone tonight (phone tonight)
Homey in the dickies in my zone tonight (zone tonight)
He don't know it might be on tonight (on tonight)
Ooh he looking good and he talking right (talking right)
He the type that might change my life (change my life)
Every time he look at me my girls be like (girls be like)
(That one may be the one tonight)

If his status ain't hood
I ain't checkin' for him
Betta be street if he lookin' at me
I need a soldier
That ain't scared to stand up for me
Known to carry big things
If you know what I mean
If his status ain't hood
I ain't checkin' for him
Betta be street if he looking at me
I need a soldier
That ain't scared to stand up for me
Gotta know to get dough
And he betta be street

Hey, see cash money is a army
I'm walking with purple hearts on me
You talking to the sergeant
Body marked up like the subway in Harlem
Call him, Weezy F. Baby, please say the baby
If you don't see me on the block I ain't trying to hide
I blend in wit the hood, I'm camouflage
Bandanna tied, so mommy join my troop
Now every time she hear my name she salute!

I know some soldiers in here (where they at?, Where they at?)
They wanna take care of me (where they at?)
I know some soldiers in here (where they at?, Where they at?)
Wouldn't mind puttin that on me (where they at?)

I know some soldiers in here (where they at?, Where they at?)
They wanna take care of me (where they at?)
I know some soldiers in here (where they at?, Where they at?)
Wouldn't mind puttin that on me (where they at?)
