A previously unheard Lana Del Rey track titled “BBM Baby” has been leaked onto the internet, revealing the singer’s taste for some good ol’ fashioned sexting.
The ballad pays tribute to the days of Blackberry Messenger and was recorded prior to the release of her 2012 debut album Born to Die. It takes listeners back to a time before iPhones and Facebook Messenger, when thirsty young lovers bashed out kinky messages on QWERTY keyboards.
Here are some lyrics: “He signs XO, hugs, hey, I know it’s true love cause my heart goes yay,” and “The way, that you write is crazy, you’re typing this poetical, red roses in your message oh, I think I met my match in you.”
Del Rey, who hasn’t released new music since last year’s Honeymoon, has never openly acknowledged “BBM Baby.” But in a 2011 interview with Filter music producer Chris Glover (aka Penguin Prison) said that he had co-written the song with her.
