Dèfwa m rete m imajine sa la vi ye
Wap kwè’m siw vle se tout venn kòm ki pran tranble
Defwa m konn ap fete gen’w lòt ki dlo nan je
Lesprim konn bien poze genw lòt ki toumante
Wap dim kouman mpral fè santi’m ere
Gad kijan m bien kanpe gen’w frè k andikape
Sak jwenn pou jete yon lòt pa ka manje
Wap dim kouman mpral fè ere
Dèfwa m rete map kalkile sa nap asiste
Wap kwè’m si’w vle se dlo nan je’m kap fin seche
Map fè chwa pou’m dòmi gen’w lòt ki nan lari
Gen sak gen tròp abi pandan on lòt tou touni
Wap di kouman mpral fè santi’m ere
Chak fwa m ta vle rejwi m sonje sa kap soufri
Chak moman m vle souri m sonje sa kap jemi
Wap di kouman mpral fè ere
Pap janm bliye Rooldine Lindor kite peyi’l k’al etidie
Dominiken viole’l l y’asine’l kòman’w ta vle pou’m ta ere
Pakèt timoun nan lari ak yon twal sal ap suye machin
Yo san fanmi yo sans abri kòman’w ta vle pou’m ta rejwi
Lè gro trip ap vale ti trip la mizè ka rann moun chimè
Yon jenès kap viv nan lafè di pito’l mouri l’ al nan paradi
Lavni on peyi panse konsa, son’w mitrayèt otomatik
Ki branche sou on sosiete si n’ pa ekilibre l’ ka deklanche
Notre Père qui est aux cieux, que ton nom soit sanctifié
Que ton reigne vienne tous les jours pou sosiete sa pa fin echwe
Jenou’n atè nap priye Bondye nap made’w pitie
Konnen nou peche se vre tanpri papa padone’n
No Rules is the debut album of Kompasoul, a new band from Montreal, Canada. The 13 tracks flow seamlessly and leave you dancing throughout the duration of the project. What's most impressive about Kompasoul is their versatility. While the band is able to churn out hard-hitting club bangers promoters will love (Pè severans, Pirana, Manje Pou 2), they also craft mellow konpa love and zouk hits DJs will spin. And the transition between the two sounds is effortless. Even...

Gone is the bubbly sweetness of her earlier material. The patina of life - wilted relationships, career shifts, last-minute apartment hunts - has molded her...
