She’s already put out a few in the lead up to the release on May 28th, like “Shut Up Sheila“, and I can’t wait to have the whole thing out so I add it all to my playlist.
And recently, she put out “Voodoo Doll”, and of course because Ashley’s a badass and one of the best in the business right now, it’s great.
The story of this song is so unique, where a woman who is betrayed by her man starts to feel every affair he’s had and is having as if it’s happening to her… like I said, a very unique concept I don’t know if I’ve ever heard put in a song quite this way before:
“I keep smelling cigarettes Feel that pretty black dress slipping off her back I don’t drink rum but I’m chasing it Rollin’ off her tongue, every drop, you ain’t wastin’ it Those lips on her neck, needle in my chest Ooh, she’s makin’ my skin crawl You got yourself a voodoo doll
It’s one hell of a curse I know she ain’t sleepin’ ’cause I ain’t sleepin’ Damn, those kisses hurt They ain’t gonna stop So, I’ve been keeping salt around my door Red candle burning Better light one more, it ain’t workin'”
