Scared of Heights

Blahza

Blahza pushes his breezy hip-hop sound to a more palatable direction on his latest track “Scared of Heights”. Tucked somewhere between Plain White T’s alternative pop leanings and Post Malone’s titanium-grade hooks, the rising rap artist and songwriter embraces his more vulnerable side in songwriting, and drops memorable verses over moody but immaculate production. “It’s not easy to admit when you don’t have courage, but it’s so relatable because we all fall short in some aspects, especially love– when the past year has made interactions very limited,” Blahza reveals details on his latest song, diving deep into themes of romantic nostalgia and pandemic anxiety to create something that matters on a broader sense.

With its icy breeziness and stripped-down appeal, “Scared of Heights” easily ranks as one of his most accessible yet earnestly compelling releases so far, firmly establishing himself as one of the formidable forces this side of Asian-American rap.

[Chorus]
I went over how I’d say hi to you
Like a thousand times
And i’m sure I’d mess it up everytime
Tell me what i gotta do for
You to be mine
Cuz I can’t get you out my mind
(but I ain’t even trying)

[Verse 1]
Girl I could get you a bag
You could be popping them tags
Ima be cool with your mom
I could be friends with your dad
Girl you don’t gotta be sad
I’m lifting you up when you mad
Anything you’ve ever had
We bout to be better than that
And if you want a diamond
All you gotta do is ask
Say you wanted all the money
We can go to rob the bank
Girl you don’t know I’m a fool
But ima go crazy for you
Girl i got what it takes i’m over here waiting for you

[Pre-chorus]
I won’t take you for a ride girl we’ll keep getting higher
I’ll keep running for your love like my feet don’t get tired
And I got nothing to do
So we can go rendezvous
Yeah i got all day to start my life with you
Start my life with you
I guess that’s why I keep on waiting just to make a move

[Chorus]
I went over how I’d say hi to you
Like a thousand times
And i’m sure I’d mess it up everytime
Tell me what i gotta do for
You to be mine
Cuz I can’t get you out my mind
(but I ain’t even trying)

[Verse 2]
And I won’t ever play a song out your window
I’ll write an album cuz you’re worth more than an intro
You like it slow you like it fast I’ll match the tempo
I’m acting corny cuz I know that’s what you into
And girl you fine but don’t brag
Playing games and its tag
You ain’t running to fast
You gon wait til I catch up
Girl this ain’t no hide and seek
We don’t count to ten we don’t count to three
They talk about falling in love
I didn’t know I could fall so deep

[Pre-chorus]
I ain’t know i could feel like this
I can’t let this feeling fall away
I never know what it is I’ve missed
I won’t let you get away
Girl its funny cuz I’m normally not this shy
Got a feeling that it’s gon be different this time
I might be scared of heights
But I’m bout to take the leap it’s just you and

[Chorus]
I went over how I’d say hi to you
Like a thousand times
And i’m sure I’d mess it up everytime
Tell me what i gotta do for
You to be mine
Cuz I can’t get you out my mind
(but I ain’t even trying)
