Song is called “Sex You Back to Sleep.” (TW rape)

When I first heard part of this song on the radio, I thought it was intentionally stupid. Like maybe SNL made another song like “Dick in a Box.” I mean, it’s fucking ridiculous that this was a song chosen to be put on the radio.

Sadly, I was wrong.

I can’t handle that this is a song on the radio that is being presented with it’s little sexy R&B tones. A selection of the lyrics:

“Now where you at? Just dropped my bags
I’m coming through to meet ya, oh, yeah, to meet ya, oh
I know you’re almost half asleep but you know I might just reach ya (reach ya, baby)
Girl, I need ya, oh (need ya, baby)
Gon’ gimme that spare key, oh
But if you keep the door unlocked, be ready, oh

I know you got work pretty early, I’ll be around by 3:30
Usually you’re done by one, so, baby, when I wake you up

Just let me ride, fuck you back to sleep, girl
Don’t say a word, no (no), don’t you talk
Baby, just hold on tight to me, girl
Fuck you back to sleep, girl, rock you back

Ain’t sorry that I woke ya, I ain’t sorry ‘bout ya job
Call sick in the morning so I can get a little bit more of your love
I know you want me, how you feel me ‘cause you never disagree
So when you wake from your sleep, girl”

(repeats starting from Just let me ride...)

I don’t understand how showing up and mounting the woman who is too asleep to talk has any semblance of consent. Also, “Don’t say a word, no (no), don’t you talk” is creepy as fuck in this song. There’s no indication that she’s there to be anything more than a hole to fuck - no mention of any kind of pleasure or orgasm, just more eh, lay there and take it.

And this is supposed to be sexy somehow.
