Earthquake Lyrics – Labrinth

Labrinth, come in

Labrinth, come in

Labrinth, come in

Labrinth, come in

Ladies and gentlemen
This is something they call a ground-breaker
So, let me first apologize
To the shirts and the ties for your make-up
‘Cause I’ll make you ugly, as soon as it drops
We’re on a rampage, bottles poppin’ off
Before you know it, there’s rubble and dust
‘Cause we’ll be fuckin’ it up
Somebody say, “You better run”

Yeah!
I predict an earthquake up in here
Say, “Yeah!”
I predict an earthquake up in here
‘Cause we throw bombs on it, throw bombs on it
Just smash something, yeah mosh for me
Hey, yeah!
We can make an earthquake up in here

Ladies and gentlemen
What you’re about to witness is no illusion
And now, we got the bass banging from here to Buckingham Palace
They’re all moving
Hey Simon, we’re fucking them up, turnin’ them SyCo
Everybody rock, let’s bring the house down
To rubble and dust cause we’ll be fuckin’ it up
Somebody say, “You better run”

Yeah!
I predict an earthquake up in here
Say, “Yeah!”
I predict an earthquake up in here
‘Cause we throw bombs on it (yeah) throw bombs on it (yeah)
Just smash something, yeah mosh for me
Yeah (Let’s go)
We can make an earthquake up in here

I predict an earthquake up in here
Say, “Yeah”
I predict an earthquake up in here
‘Cause we throw bombs on it, throw bombs on it
Just smash something, yes mosh for me
Hey, yes
We can make an earthquake up in here (so here we go, we go)

Hey, yo, Labrinth
This one’s feelin’ like a straight ten on the Richter scale, you know?

Yeah, fire, fire
W-We about to set this place on fire
Without a match or lighter
Don’t do girlfriends, one nighters
Make them (Ahh), C-minor
If I want Christian or Kurt Geiger
I just phone up their designer
Doing all nighters, no days off
Gray hairs and a little bit of weight loss
I predict (riots!) I predict (chaos!)
I predict (people!) I predict (oh!)
Disturbing London, got the whole city panicking
I be Nostradamus, this my ni-ni-nigga Labrinth

Yeah!
I predict an earthquake up in here
Say, “Yeah!”
I predict an earthquake up in here
‘Cause we throw bombs on it (yeah) throw bombs on it (yeah)
Just smash something, yeah mosh for me
Hey, yeah!
We can make an earthquake up in here

About Labrinth

His stage name Labrinth derives from his birth date of 4 January 1989, when he was born Timothy Lee McKenzie. He is a British musician, singer, songwriter, rapper, and record producer. After beginning his career as a producer, he was signed as a solo act by Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Music, which enabled him to embark on a professional career as a singer. This was the first non-talent show signing for Cowell in six years, as Labrinth became his first non-talent show signee. Earlier this year, Labrinth was a member of the supergroup LSD, alongside Sia and Diplo, when they were formed.

The song “Pass Out”, a collaboration between Labrinth and Tinie Tempah, reached number one on the UK Singles Chart in March 2010. Since then, McKenzie has collaborated with Tinie Tempah on numerous occasions and continues to do so. In September 2010, Labrinth released his first solo single, titled “Let the Sun Shine”, on the same chart and reached the third place in the chart as well. Despite appearing on the same day as Tinie Tempah’s debut album, Electronic Earth was not released until 31 March 2012. It was preceded by the singles “Earthquake” featuring Tinie Tempah, and “Last Time”, which peaked at number two and number four, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was with the song “Beneath Your Beautiful”, which featured Emeli Sand√©, that he finally was able to achieve his first number-one single in November 2012.

A few years ago, Labrinth and two other singers and songwriters, Sia from Australia and Diplo from the United States, formed the supergroup LSD. There were two single releases: the first, “Genius”, which was released on 3 May, and the second, “Audio”, which was released a week later, on 10 May, 2018. It was on the 8th of August 2018 that the band released its third single, which was called “Thunderclouds”.

Life of Labrinth

Originally from Hackney, Hackney, London, McKenzie’s family is of Jamaican and Canadian descent, and he was born and raised there. It is no surprise that he comes from a family of musicians consisting of nine siblings, and grew up at home surrounded almost exclusively by the sounds of American gospel music, as his entire family is a band of musicians. The Mac 9 band was formed when he and his eight siblings were young, when they formed an all-sibling band together. During the school years of his youth, he attended Stoke Newington School and pursued a musical career that would last for the rest of his life. A producer, McKenzie’s brother Mac (who also goes by the name mac1), introduced him to the world of making music when McKenzie was 15 years old. Mac introduced McKenzie to the process of creating music in his studio.

Career

His first track produced for a recording artist was “Dead End” from the album A.D.H.D. (2009). EMI Music Publishing was approached by Guy Moot of EMI Music Publishing in order to offer McKenzie the opportunity to become a published artist after the track generated interest in McKenzie as a producer and songwriter. With the help of his sister, ShezAr, Labrinth mentored the Urban Development Vocal Collective (UDVC) from 2010 to 2011. As a member of the collective, he produced multiple tracks, contributing to the release of a nine-track project titled Urban Development, as part of the collective’s work. Labrinth’s original tracks also included backing vocals on which they were included. In addition to Wretch 32, Chip, Maverick Sabre, Devlin and others, the collective has collaborated with a number of other artists.

On 28 February 2010, McKenzie appeared as an uncredited guest artist on British rapper Tinie Tempah’s debut single, “Pass Out” – having also produced and co-written the track. The single debuted at number-one on the UK Singles Chart, number seventy in Australia and number six on the Irish Singles Chart. Having spent two weeks at the summit in the United Kingdom, “Pass Out” was awarded Best British Single at the 2011 BRIT Awards and Best Contemporary Song at the 2011 Ivor Novello Awards, also achieving platinum certification from the British Phonographic Industry for surpassing sales of 600,000 copies. Several months later saw the two artists collaborate for a second time with the release of Tempah’s second single, “Frisky” – again co-written and produced by McKenzie. The single debuted at number two in the United Kingdom, beaten only by the charity single “Shout” featuring Dizzee Rascal and James Corden. The track saw chart success in Scotland, where it became the duo’s second consecutive number one single, also peaking at number three in Ireland.
