The single Open finds the songstress in another unfulfilling love affair, must be a Jamaican man, this one just doesn’t want to ‘open’ up about his feelings. “Don’t underrate what the little things can do, just show me affection, more than a couple I love you’s,” she sings. Though not giving him much incentive to make the big move, she says, “If mi bruk yuh heart just charge me fi damage.” Listen further, the full version for this one is also below.
