"Saving Lives One Song at a Time..."

Biography

Bella Bella mixes hard hitting guitars, swelling synth horns, gospel-dance beats, groove-ridden keys, phat bass lines and powerhouse vocals to create a sound that undeniably and ultimately rocks.

"The music stems from our various musical backgrounds," says the Nigerian-raised lead singer, Sayo. "On one end you'll hear some soulful, gospel-struck, Stevie Wonder-like horns and on the other end you'll have the hardest hitting guitars slung from the belly of Zeppelin."

Combining years of musical experience, Bella Bella members have opened up for major recording artists and have played popular venues and events around the country. The band continues to spread their energetic music and live show as far as it will travel.

Lyrics

Blockbuster

Written By: Sayo Ogundiran

Im a girl cut from stone
he's a boy mason pro
Im a girl arms tied up with strings
he's a boy puppeteering

final show on this stage
all the actors take the place
lights go down now, curtain's rising
audience stares, somebody's dying

Blockbuster Release
action to the tee
boy meets girl, everything is peachy
3 months in she declares he beats me
climax, eh,
no doubt shots ring out
sirens circle the house
they say
boy was no good, the girl was the victim
grave digger calls, its all part of the system

I'm a girl with broken bones
he's a boy hammering it home
i'm a girl who just can't say a thing
he's a boy who can't stop laughing

final show on this stage
all the actors take the place
lights go down now, curtain's rising
audience stares, somebody's dying

Blockbuster Release
action to the tee
boy meets girl, everything is peachy
3 months in she declares he beats me
climax, eh,
no doubt shots ring out
sirens circle the house
they say
boy was no good, the girl was the victim
grave digger calls, its all part of the system

lights go down now
ain't no more tickets at the door
there's blood on the scene...

Blockbuster Release
action to the tee
boy meets girl, everything is peachy
3 months in she declares he beats me
climax, eh,
no doubt shots ring out
sirens circle the house
they say
boy was no good, the girl was the victim

Horny

Written By: Sayo Ogundiran

its funny how people change
and the tables turn when you're rearranging your life
they pull you down, call you names
and once again you hit bottom in the game of your life

man I know they kill to dress like they do
man I know you'd kill to sleep with one of them too
but would it be so bad
to walk these crowded streets
anonymously

funny how people change
when its time to square the deal away they screw you
looking pass your solemn face
never thinking how much pain it takes to be you

man I know they kill to dress like they do
man I know you'd kill to sleep with one of them too
but would it be so bad
to walk these crowded streets
anonymously

yo we rise like the phoenix
gritty can't get between us
destiny soldier style, we knock em out like Venus
serene, too lovely
trying to make another history
remember them days Jim Crow got the best of me
look at me now, PGA profile
blazer, slacks, base-cap to floss a long while
if you're feeling what I'm saying won't you scream woo chile
cause im rocking miracles like John C. in Green Mile

its funny how people change
its funny how people change
its funny how people change
its funny how people change

Packages

Written By: Sayo Ogundiran

when sirens blare
pull slowly to the rear
if you're tail's too weak
flash your license to freak
drive it under intention
move your ass in full suspension
if you assume dog position
they'll wiggle with it
make sure they wiggle with it good

if you think you got what it takes to make my body ache
lay your bboy package on the dance floor
we ain't got no time for breaks make no mistake
we've been waiting for you to give us some more
if you think you got what it takes to make my body ache
lay your bboy package on the dance floor

when sirens blare flash a bboy stare
if you're grill's too loose, throw your stash in the rear
drive it under intention
move your ass in full suspension
if you assume dog position
make sure they wiggle with it
make sure they wiggle with it good

we ain't got no time for breaks make no mistake
we've been waiting for you to give us some more
if you think you got what it takes to make my body ache
lay your bboy package on the dance floor
