Cardi B feat. Kehlani Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ooh, ooh
Ring, ring, ring, ring

You don't hit my line no more, oh, oh
You don't make it ring, ring, ring, ring
I can't keep this on the low
I want you to make it ring, ring, ring, ring
Should I call first? I can't decide
I want to, but a bitch got pride
The switchin' up shit is what I can't fuck with
I'm feelin' you but you hard to get in touch with
And you ain't hit me up in a while
Actin' like you don't know what number to dial
You quit, then that's it, I'ma throw in the towel
'Cause a nigga only gon' do what you allow
You don't want this gun smoke
Learn to text with your nose if your thumb broke
I don't care if we get into it and I stall on your ass
Better still wake up to missed calls from your ass, nigga

You don't hit my line no more, oh, oh
You don't make it ring, ring, ring, ring
I can't keep this on the low
I want you to make it ring, ring, ring, ring

Nah, nigga, now you gon' have to call me (call me)
'Cause I'm lookin' at these messages, they on me (yeah)
Actin' like they ain't niggas that want me
Let another nigga in your spot, and you gon' be hot, nigga, coffee
You gon' be sick to your, stomach
Hit me when you free, 1-800
It's emergency, call me 911
'Cause right now I'm out here tryna find someone
The ring on my phone, ring on my finger (brrr)
You actin' like you ain't tryna do either (yeah)
Was a good girl (ayy), watched me turn diva (uh)
Here goes my heart, I put it on speaker (oh)

You don't hit my line no more, oh, oh
You don't make it ring, ring, ring, ring
I can't keep this on the low
I want you to make it ring, ring, ring, ring

You used to be on my line
On my tip all the time, yeah
Love it when you make me feel
Like you don't mind when I ain't got time for you
And no it don't go to my head, I'm only arrogant in bed
I just love to know you wanna spend time with me instead
Now you all caught up, yeah
You all caught up and you done left me alone, yeah
You was all fed up
Ready for the next step, wanna be on your own
Said I just miss you, I just miss us, baby
All I know is

You don't hit my line no more, oh, oh
You don't make it ring, ring, ring, ring (you don't make it ring, baby)




I can't keep this on the low (yeah, yeah, oh)
I want you to make it ring, ring, ring, ring

Overall Meaning

The song "Ring" by Cardi B featuring Kehlani is essentially about a woman's dissatisfaction with the level of effort put in by her partner when it comes to communication. She expresses her concern by saying that he no longer 'hits' her line, meaning he does not call or text her as often as she desires. This is a big deal for her because, in her opinion, if he loves her, he should always make an effort to stay in touch with her. She is puzzled as to why he would stop trying to communicate with her altogether.


The woman in the song also shows some level of vulnerability when she admits that she cannot keep her feelings hidden from the world. She feels like she has to let the world know what's going on between her and her partner. She is trying to make him understand that her need for communication is essential for their relationship to work. She also wants him to make the first move, but her ego appears to be getting in the way. The song ends on a sad note, with the singer admitting that she misses her partner and reminiscing about the good times they had.


Overall, this song is about the dynamics of communication in relationships and how keeping in touch is key to a happy and healthy relationship.


Line by Line Meaning

Ooh, ooh Ring, ring, ring, ring
The opening lines represent the phone's ringtone, indicating that the singer is waiting for someone's call to go through.


You don't hit my line no more, oh, oh You don't make it ring, ring, ring, ring I can't keep this on the low I want you to make it ring, ring, ring, ring
The singer's partner used to be in touch with her frequently but has now stopped calling or contacting her. She wants him to make her phone ring again with his call, but she is not able to keep it to herself anymore.


Should I call first? I can't decide I want to, but a bitch got pride The switchin' up shit is what I can't fuck with I'm feelin' you but you hard to get in touch with And you ain't hit me up in a while Actin' like you don't know what number to dial You quit, then that's it, I'ma throw in the towel 'Cause a nigga only goin' through what you allow You don't want this gun smoke Learn to text with your nose if your thumb broke I don't care if we get into it and I stall on your ass But I still wake up to missed calls from your ass, nigga
The singer is confused whether she should call her partner first as she is concerned about her self-respect. She hates when people behave differently from what they used to when she got attached to them. She likes her partner, but he is not accessible anymore. The partner hasn't contacted her in a while, and she feels that he is pretending not to know her number. She is ready to give up the relationship because everything depends on him. She wants him to contact her even if he has broken his thumb. She wakes up to missed calls from him, but she doesn't mind when they get into arguments.


Nah, nigga now you gon' have to call me (call me) 'Cause I'm lookin' at these messages, they on me (yeah) Actin' like they ain't niggas that want me Let another nigga in your spot, and you gon' be hot nigga, coffee You gon' be sick to your, stomach Hit me when you free, 1-800 It's emergency, call me 911 'Cause right now I'm out here tryna find someone The ring on my phone, ring on my finger (brrr) You actin' like you ain't tryna do either (yeah) Was a good girl (ayy), watched me turn diva (uh) Here goes my heart, I put it on speaker (oh)
The singer is frustrated that her partner hasn't contacted her, so she threatens him of letting someone else take his place. She believes that he is not the only one interested in her but is acting like he is. She further taunts him by warning him that he will be jealous if she replaces him. She tells him to consider it an emergency if he contacts her because she is out searching for love. She says that she has become more confident and attractive due to his attention before. And now, she is putting her heart on speaker hoping that he will call.


You used to be on my line On my tip all the time, yeah Love it when you make me feel Like you don't mind when I ain't got time for you And no it don't go to my head, I'm only arrogant in bed I just love to know you wanna spend time with me instead Now you all caught up, yeah You all caught up and you done left me alone, yeah You was all fed up Ready for the next step, wanna be on your own Said I just miss you, I just miss us, baby All I know is
The singer reminisces about the time when her partner would call or message her frequently, and she loved the way he made her feel. She mentions that his attention made her more confident in bed but didn't go to her head. She likes spending time with him and misses him now. Her partner, however, has moved on and is ready to take the next step in his life, leaving her alone. She tells her partner that she misses him, and that's all she knows.

@purpleduck3494

Repent from your sinful and wicked ways. Turn to God through salvation in Jesus Christ alone. This is no good the Cardi B's of the world. This evil will lead you to eternal death. Only Christ offers eternal life. Choose life not death. Choose your maker and not Satan and his deceptions.
