Loco Hwasa Dont prod by Woogie Hyena on the Keyboard
Back in 2018, a collaboration song between MAMAMOO’s Hwasa and Loco was a big hit. Don’t is a couple song that was created from a show Hyena On the Keyboard, a show where singer and producer tell the process of making a song. Hwasa and Loco paired together since they both wanted to make a song together. With this show, their dream came true.
The song is about a girl who refused a drink from a guy she met at the bar because she doesn’t want to be fooled by a drunk man. Loco lyrics tell that all drunk men would act the same, they would make a move that isn’t sincere. Alcohol can make people start talking nonsense and do things they would regret later. They wanted to avoid alcohol and keep their sanity, this is what the song is about.
Don’t offer me a drink, oh baby
It’ll only bring regrets
Don’t give me courage, oh baby
I know it’ll only last today
