Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, to Guyanese parents, Yolande is the youngest of eight siblings. Drawn to a variety of arts at a young age Yolande was singing and competing at The Royal Conservatory of Music, Dancing Ballet, for the Royal Ontario School of Ballet, and Tap Dancing her way to stardom.

At 17 Yolande and a teenage friend formed a duet. The two recorded in studio throughout high school, and performed wherever opportunity knocked. It was at the age of 17 that Yolande found a love for rapping witty, and controversial lines, as it allowed her freedom to express her feisty, raw traits. After completing high school, Yolande was torn between academics and wanting to explore and pursue her music passion full-time. Since most of her siblings had completed University, it was not up for debate. Yolande would enroll in a four year Degree driven program at Ryerson University studying Radio and Television Arts.

In 2003 Yolande auditioned at the Phoenix Concert Hall for the HoneyJam, an all female showcase in Toronto. After writing the song just a few weeks before the audition, and rehearsing it day after day in her bedroom she decided to just go for it.

Lyrics

DON'T TELL ME HOW TO

Written By: YOLANDE NOBLE

Verse 1

My oxygen is leaving
You stifling my breathing
With all your questions plus your attitude its so demeaning
Stop! Stop! the talking talking
You choking stop the knocking
You making my life a living hell
So do start the walking

Pre-Hook

You pushing hard, pushing hard, pushing real hard
You pushing hard, pushing hard, trying to push the bar
You pushing hard, pushing hard, pushing real hard
You pushing hard pushing hard trying to push the bar
You getting under my skin
You going in, casting the oil on the fire
You getting under my skin
You going in, pressing me hotter and hotter

Chorus

Don't tell me how to live my life
You think you know it all
Well you don't know me
Don't tell me how to live my life
The cards are mine to play
No I won't play your way
Don't tell me how to live my life
No matter what you say

Verse 2

I want to breath a minute
Just let me breath a minute
No not a second need to breath right now
Can't take this chitter -chatter
You driving me mad-hatter
You want to point and point your finger
Like I snapped your ladder

Pre-hook

You pushing hard, pushing hard, pushing real hard
You pushing hard, pushing hard, trying to push the bar
You pushing hard, pushing hard, pushing real hard
You pushing hard pushing hard trying to push the bar
You getting under my skin
You going in, casting the oil on the fire,
You getting under my skin
You going in, pressing me hotter and hotter

Chorus

Don't tell me how to live my life
You think you know it all
Well you don't know me
Don't tell me how to live my life
The cards are mine to play
No I won't play your way
Don't tell me how to live my life
No matter what you say

Bridge

I'm getting tired of you creeping in my business
Stay the hell out of my way
If you want to heal this
I see you watching me, watching you
Watching me

Chorus

Don't tell me how to live my life
You think you know it all
Well you don't know me
Don't tell me how to live my life
The cards are mine to play
No I won't play your way
Don't tell me how to live my life
The cards are mine to play
No I won't play your way
Don't tell me how to live my life
No matter what you say
