What is the song”How Bad Could It Be” by Burnaboy all about?

Burnaboy in the song “How Bad Could It, talked about different things.

The artist first of all posed a question to those who may be downcast or devastated about their current situation. According to Burnaboy, regardless of how dreadful your situation is, is it worth taking your life? Is it worth secluding yourself?

Burnaboy is spurring you to find a way to come out of whatever situation you are in, rather than let it get to you, or get in your way.

Also, Burnaboy feels you may be going through a particular situation because you are not in the place you ought to be. Or, because you are a confused being who lacks self-confidence in what you do and say. You are also doubtful about yourself because you don’t want to fail or make a mistake. Burnaboy however, encourages you to properly manage yourself, give the situation time, and give yourself time so you don’t make a costlier mistake.

Lastly, he points out people being happy over others’ problems. He records the experiences of famous people like Jorja Smith, Kamaru Usman, and Swizz Beatz, when they are in a bad mood, and how they managed to assuage it.

“How Bad Could It Be” by Burnaboy Lyrics Translation

Intro

I’m Jorja Smith and when I’m in a bad mood

I can make a whole room really feel as bad as I do

I overthink, “Why am I in a bad mood?”

“Why has someone put me in a bad mood?”

Loads of whys and no solutions of how to get myself out of a bad mood

Which I’m tryna work on

It’s the Nigerian nightmare, Kamaru Usman

And when I am in a bad mood, I love to stop and think

So that I don’t make the situation worse

I give myself time to be able to make a rational and educated decision

That’d help me through the situation

When I’m in a bad mood, I tend to be very quiet

And I go to my high power, my God

Pre-chorus (Burnaboy)

When it’s rainin’, you wish the sun was shinin’

When it’s sunshine, you wish the rain was fallin’

You’re always searchin’, never seem to find it

Lookin’ in all the wrong places

Chorus (Burnaboy)

‘Cause you can’t seem to decide whether you’re wrong or you’re right

And you’re just not sure about your life

Get nervous, then anxiety take over your mind

And your trouble just increase in size

When you’re feelin’ mad and you’re angry

When you feel like you’re lonely

When you feel as sad as you can feel

Say, “How bad could it be?”

Be eeeeeeeeee

How bad could it be?

Verse 1

Many wan know if you love just her

And you’ve got way too many scars before me

Search for problems where there isn’t any

You’re only happy when us breakin’ up

Chorus

You can’t seem to decide whether you’re wrong or you’re right

And you’re just not sure about your life

Get nervous, then anxiety take over your mind

And your trouble just increase in size

When you’re feelin’ mad and you’re angry

When you feel like you’re lonely

When you feel as sad as you can feel

Say, “How bad could it be?”

Be eeeeeeeeeeee

“How bad could it be?”

Verse 2

Oh, there’s a reason why you walk like you don’t have a care in the world

All the times in your life that you had to put up with someone like me

Never should have loved you like that

Never should have listened to them there

Because even when it seems suicidal

Always have to listen to my heart

Pre-chorus

When it’s rainin’, you wish the sun was shinin’

When it’s sunshine, you wish the rain would fall

You’re always searchin’, never seem to find it

Lookin’ in all the wrong places, ah

Chorus

You can’t seem to decide whether you’re wrong or you’re right

And you’re just not sure about your life

Get nervous, then anxiety take over your mind

And your trouble just increase in size

When you’re feelin’ mad and you’re angry

When you feel like you’re lonely

When you feel as sad as you can feel

Say, “How bad could it be?”

Be eeeeeeeeeeeee

“How bad could it be?”

Outro

Yeah, yeah, it’s your boy, Swizz Beatz

Shoutout to my brother, Burna Boy

You know, when I get upset

Disappointed with things sometimes

I just, like, put on some jazz music

Go smoke a cigar

And just go play with the kids, you know what I’m sayin’?

Go and play with my kids

Go out with the wife

Just switch that energy and just know that, you know, too blessed to be stressed

No matter what, you know what I mean?

So, a lot of things that I’m upset with

I think because people just don’t know better

You know what I’m sayin’? People just don’t know better

So, you know, we gotta know better
