In this track, which cleverly samples Amerie‘s “Why Don’t We Fall In Love,” Queen Naija makes it explicitly clear that she has no tolerance for a partner who isn’t loyal and doesn’t share a genuine connection with her. In the first verse, she sings, “So many bands I’m runnin’ thru / So much that I wanna do / It’s starting to become so clear me / Need more than love, I need loyalty / I can buy my own, I don’t need a loan / Don’t need no chaperone / I’m already grown.”
YoungBoy adds his perspective in his verse, rapping as a partner who seeks the same love reciprocated: “How you talk to me bout love and this you show me? / I ain’t whatchu like, then coach me.”
Accompanying “No Fake Love” is a vibrant music video directed by Sara Lacombe. Filmed in Miami, the video captures Queen Naija enjoying the sun by the pool and sharing lively moments with her friends on a boat. In between, she spends quality time with YoungBoy and friends for a night out on the town.
