Across the United States, people of color are likeliest to be considered “essential workers” and must still go to work despite stay-at-home orders. Blacks and Latinos are likelier than whites to be diagnosed with COVID-19 — and to die of the disease. 

Those experiences are shaping how people from those groups will vote in the November presidential election. 

Seventeen-year-old Michelle Aguilar Ramirez is a first-time voter and US citizen of Guatemalan descent who lives in Seattle. She worries how the pandemic will affect her family — particularly her mother, who is undocumented. 

“I’m first generation, and obviously like — sometimes it’s hard because my mom is a single mom,” Aguilar Ramirez said. “She can barely get ends meet, even though she works and works … over time, she still can’t figure it out. And I feel like my mom is not the only person struggling with that.”

Washington was the first place in the US to see a major outbreak of the coronavirus. Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency in February as the first patients started dying. The state reports about 10,000 confirmed cases so far. 

Like many young Latinos in Seattle, Aguilar Ramirez leans Democrat. But she said she feels disenchanted by the presumed Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, as well as his challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders, who recently dropped out of the race. Aguilar Ramirez said the issues most important to her are climate change and immigration. The coronavirus pandemic has only underscored the positive changes she wants to see for her family. 

The World’s host Marco Werman spoke to Esmy Jimenez, an immigration reporter with KUOW in Seattle, about how the coronavirus is shaping the political views and voting decisions of young Latinos in Washington. Jimenez is working with The World on “Every 30 Seconds,” a yearlong series exploring the Latino youth vote.

Vincent Dubois, one of Notre Dame’s three official organists, was in Strasbourg when he learned that the cathedral in Paris had caught fire one year ago.

“It’s like one of the closest members of your family, your husband or your partner, or your brother or sister, was burning beside you,” he recalled, “and there was nothing you could do.” He and his fellow organists assumed that the instrument — parts of which date to the 18th century — was lost. He learned it had survived by text message at around 6 a.m. the next morning. 

The French government, which owns the cathedral, has pledged to reconstruct it. But Notre Dame was not just a landmark building; it was a concert hall with a unique sound, even among cathedrals, according to Dubois.

“The resonance is unlike anywhere else. It’s both precise while at the same time, lasting in the way the sound reverberates,” Dubois said. 

Acoustics researcher Brian Katz could hear that difference when he was able to enter Notre Dame last July. Sunlight streamed through the now open roof. 

“The fact that there’s these holes in the roof, the reverberation time has dropped significantly, so you don’t feel like you’re walking into a cathedral acoustically anymore,” he said.

But Katz has an acoustic map of Notre Dame that was made by his research team at the National Center for Scientific Research at the Sorbonne University in Paris. After the fire last April, he realized these sound measurements could inform Notre Dame’s reconstruction. 

“The measurements that we did in 2013 were after [a] concert that we recorded. So it was, I think between 10 o’clock and midnight, or maybe one o’clock in the morning. … There were about 10 of us, moving microphones around.”

“The measurements that we did in 2013 were after [a] concert that we recorded. So, it was, I think between 10 o’clock and midnight, or maybe 1 o’clock in the morning,” Katz explained. There were about 10 of us moving microphones around.” 

These measurements helped Katz and his team document how sound is transformed within the cathedral. Later analysis of the recordings allowed them to create a computer model of the cathedral’s acoustic landscape. 

Together with a set of recordings the same lab made in the 1980s, these are the only measurements of the cathedral’s acoustics taken before the fire. 

Intended as a proof of concept, Katz’s team used the recordings to create a virtual reality simulation that lets the user hear how the music of a concert is transformed while flying around Notre Dame on a magic carpet. 

“It was not planned to be as important as it was — as it has turned out to be,” Katz said. 

All cathedrals have lots of big, flat, reflective surfaces and even small modifications can change the resonance of the space, Katz said — it’s like changing a painting or cleaning the stone. 

“Acoustics is an effect of the choices of all the other disciplines … the structural engineers and the stonemasons and the architectural finishes. All those choices of details are what creates the acoustics of a space,” Katz said. 

With the measurements and the type of modeling software used to design concert halls, Katz hopes he can guide all the necessary choices in the restoration of Notre Dame that can add up to something that sounds like its original state. 

“The earlier … acoustics is thought of and considered … the more integrated it can be in the design,” Katz said, “and important decisions can be made at the right time as opposed to later in the project, when it’s more difficult to change things.

Katz’s team planned to take new measurements in the cathedral this spring with help from a robot to reach areas off-limits because of safety concerns. That trip got postponed when Paris shut down the site as part of the measures to counter the spread of the new coronavirus. 

Even when the multiyear restoration effort is eventually completed, organist Dubois thinks it will take a few more years for Notre Dame to sound like it once did. 

“It’s also the dust of the space, simply put. It’s a place in which there is so much foot traffic. There are many candles to be burned, so lots of soot, of which a little bit ends up all over everything.” 

The only thing that can restore that, he thinks, is time — a short time, really, in the life of the centuries-old cathedral.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright spent years representing the US in multilateral institutions.  

A World War II refugee from Czechoslovakia, Albright became the first woman to serve as US secretary of state in 1997, appointed to the role by then-President Bill Clinton. Before that, she served as US ambassador to the United Nations.

In her newly published book, “Hell and Other Destinations: A 21st Century Memoir,” Albright reflects on life after her tenure in the State Department. But the former Secretary of State remains a beacon of American statecraft and advocate of multilateral diplomacy. And she said she is concerned about US President Donald Trump’s recent actions to halt funding to the World Health Organization. 

“I think it is the most counterproductive move he possibly could have made. Clearly, there were problems and problems the Chinese are going to have to answer for at some point,” Albright told The World. “But, having been at the UN, I can tell you there is no way to have your views taken seriously or call for reform if you’re not being supportive. And it’s definitely taking yourself out of a situation instead of really trying to deal with the problem. The UN is 75 years old. They do need some help in fixing these organizations, but we can’t do it from the outside.”

Related: Trump cuts WHO funding

Albright spoke with The World’s Marco Werman about Trump’s recent WHO decision and the impact on multilateralism. 

Marco Werman: What sort of reform do you think the WHO needs?

Sec. Madeleine Albright: The WHO did provide warnings, but I think that there are, obviously, issues in every organization about how they function internally, the bureaucratic aspects, their relationships. But we have to be at the table and we have to contribute and support it and not create additional problems by all of a sudden going around its back.

Related: Is coronavirus reshuffling the global power deck?  

I don’t want to do an audit of the WHO in the middle of a pandemic. But specifically, where do you think the reform should happen?

The United Nations, many of the organizations, are actually very dependent on getting intelligence from the outside. And that’s probably a good idea to try to sort out when and how they get their information. But it’s unfair just to accuse them of having screwed everything up and blaming them for something that we need to take some responsibility for, and the Chinese obviously do.

Related: Madeleine Albright: ‘Many of the best diplomats are women’ 

So as far as Trump’s announcement regarding funding for the WHO, do you see it as theater and an effort to scapegoat? And what message does it send to the rest of the world?

I think that it sends a very difficult message that the United States doesn’t have to cooperate with international organizations. That the president of the United States can go to the General Assembly session and talk only about how important our country is and sovereignty without understanding that in the 21st century there are issues that can only be handled by more than one country.

And obviously, disease knows no borders. Globalization is not a four-letter word. It is the interconnectedness of the world in the 21st century. He has not explained, frankly, what he is going to do, where he’s going to put money. Or is he going to go through some other organization? Just kind of standing up and saying, “I’m canceling” or “I’m not going to contribute” without explaining what is going to happen, I think, is a grandstand.

Related: Leon Panetta on coronavirus: ‘We’re paying the price’ of ignoring intelligence reports  

Multilateral diplomacy is all but dead. So what comes next on the world stage, in terms of power relations?

Americans don’t like the word multilateralism. It has too many syllables and it ends in an “-ism.” But it’s just about partnership and a recognition that you need partners in solving problems. Trade and aid are obviously tools. But in order for us to have a good trade policy, which I believe we need to do, there need to be people that are healthy enough to buy our things.

I’m very worried about what I’m reading that’s happening in the developing world, where the virus is also hitting. They don’t have anywhere near the health situation that they can distance from each other. And who do we expect to buy all the things that we’re exporting? How are we going to deal with supply chains? So there’s an awful lot that’s interconnected that requires some kind of an active cooperation. Given what’s going on in the 21st century, we are interdependent. There’s just no question.

Sec. Albright, it’s no secret you’re known for wearing brooches that convey historical moments that you’re living through. Do you have a broach for this moment?

I do, actually. It’s a V, and I’ll tell you where it comes from. I do also write about the fact that — I was just a child — but we spent World War II in London during the Blitz. My father was with the Czechoslovak government in exile and he spoke over BBC to Czechoslovakia. And every BBC broadcast would begin with a kettle drum and the notes from Beethoven’s Fifth, which is basically Morse code for victory. And so I have a V pin. We need a victory over the virus.

The chloroquine chronicles: A history of the drug that conquered the world

The chloroquine chronicles: A history of the drug that conquered the world

The history of the antimalarial drug chloroquine has many lessons about the power — and geopolitics — of medicine.

An old drug is getting a lot of new attention around the world: chloroquine. 

In the United States, President Donald Trump has talked about the drug’s potential for treating the novel coronavirus, though there’s little evidence. Primarily used to treat malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, chloroquine’s link to COVID-19 has prompted a global rush on the drug — and led to shortages. 

But the clamor for the drug leaves leading scientists alarmed. The hopeful claims are unsubstantiated at this point, they say, even as scientists rush to set up trials to catch the research up to the hype.

The race for chloroquine is far from new. This remedy and its natural derivative, the cinchona plant, have defined world powers and symbolized hope for cures to destructive diseases for centuries.

“There are such clear parallels between what is happening now and what happened in the 17th century,” said Fiammetta Rocco, author of “The Miraculous Fever-Tree,” referring to a malaria pandemic that hit Italy especially hard in the 1600s. 

Many thought the illness, with its spiked fevers and shaking chills, came from noxious fumes. Instead, it was the parasite-carrying mosquitoes populating Rome’s many marshes that spread the disease. Malaria — Italian for “bad air” — killed the Pope in 1623. The Vatican shut down, and 10 of 55 cardinals died, said Rocco, who is also a culture correspondent for The Economist.

Looking for a treatment for the disease, priests from the Jesuit Roman Catholic order set out on a scientific expedition and mission, traveling as far as the Andean region of South America. It was there that they found the cinchona plant. 

“You have to imagine … these huge, sort of botanical creations through which very little light even passes into the ground, they’re so huge,” said Rohan Deb Roy, a historian at the University of Reading in the UK and author of “Malarial Subjects.” 

The Jesuit missionaries and Spanish conquistadors first observed how locals used the bark of the plant — or “fever bark” — to treat malarial fevers, Deb Roy said. They then brought it back to Europe.  

‘A tool of empire’

“Whatever cured malaria should be understood not just as a medicine, but also as a military weapon,” Deb Roy said. 

Malaria could kill more soldiers than bullets during war, and being able to fend off the disease became key to maintaining European colonies overseas. 

“The cure for malaria would be then seen as a tool of empire,” Deb Roy said, “enabling soldiers to survive in these sort of unpredictable tropical colonial landscapes, which otherwise would be impossible for them.”

That led to a race among rising industrial powers to grow their own cinchona to lessen their dependency on Spain’s monopoly over the plant in the Americas. The Netherlands ultimately succeeded in the territory of Java, present-day Indonesia.

But how the bark actually worked remained a mystery until 1823, when two French researchers discovered the compound that made the bark effective against malaria: quinine.

Quinine became the basis for many antimalarial drugs, though it took scientists another century to create a synthetic variation that would allow labs to manufacture the drug without any dependency on natural plants. Those research efforts picked up around World War I, when malaria posed a threat to all sides, including US soldiers training in the South.

“We often forget now that malaria was all over the place. All up through the Mississippi Valley there was malaria,” said Leo Slater, a chemist and author of “War and Disease: Biomedical Research on Malaria in the Twentieth Century.” 

In the early 20th century, the natural version of quinine — from grinding the cinchona bark — was still the essential weapon against the malaria parasite. But when Japan took control of the Dutch East Indies during World War II, that natural supply was halted. 

“When they do this, they cut off the rest of the world from the supply of quinine just as the war is coming,” Slater said. 

The US significantly ramped up its own anti-malarial efforts during the war. 

“They developed a large program, the largest of its kind and a model for post-war biomedicine to look for new drugs,” Slater said. “But the centerpiece of it was to test more than 14,000 compounds against malaria in one form or another.” 

In the rush to arm US soldiers with anti-malaria medication, the military narrowed in on Atabrine, a drug that was effective, but incredibly toxic, causing soldiers intense nausea. 

“They didn’t want to take it,” said Karen Masterson, a professor at Stony Brook University and author of “The Malaria Project: The US Government’s Secret Mission to Find a Miracle Cure.” “They were so resistant to it that the chain of command demanded that their unit commander put the pill in their mouth, close their jaw, and watch their Adam’s apple go up and down and swallow it.”

During the war, Germany under Adolf Hitler had also put significant efforts into malaria research, including testing drugs on people in state hospitals, prisons and concentration camps, Masterson said. (The US also used non-consenting patients as test subjects in malaria drug experiments.) 

By the end of the war, the US turned to a drug more tolerable than Atabrine. It had been developed, but not pursued, by German company Bayer, which had been pivotal in modern pharmaceutical practices and malaria drug experiments. The Bayer drug had also been used in experiments by a French doctor on residents of a German-occupied compound, Masterson said. 

That drug was chloroquine. 

A ‘miracle drug’

By the late 1940s and ’50s, chloroquine became “one of the miracle drugs,” said chemist Slater. 

As the world entered a new era of peace, this “miracle drug” was promoted by the newly formed World Health Organization to help people across the world prevent and treat malaria.

Though chloroquine rose to fame quickly, its success didn’t last long, said Masterson. The so-called miracle drug was so widely promoted that malaria parasites developed a resistance, creating even more challenges in some communities where malaria was already endemic. 

“It’s not a perfect drug, it’s not a magic bullet,” Masterson said. 

Now, more than 50 years later, chloroquine, and its close relative, hydroxychloroquine, are in the spotlight again, as the world searches for a weapon against the new coronavirus threat. 

“I’m not at all surprised that such a significant and major drug that is chloroquine is back in the news in the context of a global pandemic,” Deb Roy said. 

COVID-19: The latest from The World 

Today, chloroquine still has important medical uses, but it can have serious side effects — even death for some. In the fog of a fast moving pandemic, no one knows yet whether it’s actually useful against COVID-19. 

Still, chloroquine — the product of magic plants, dead popes, and desperate hopes — has again come to represent a glimmer of light for some leaders today.

But Masterson cautioned that it represents something else, too. 

“To me it’s a symbol of false hope,” she said. 

In a new MoMA audio guide, security guards are the art experts

In a new MoMA audio guide, security guards are the art experts

Museum visitors usually don't acknowledge security guards. But they're often incredibly knowledgable about the art they keep watch over — and may even be artists themselves. A new MoMA audio guide puts the guards front and center.

Kevin Reid typically spends eight hours per day in uniform, five days per week, standing in the galleries at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, keeping watch over the art.

Sometimes people ask him where to find the bathroom. But more often, they barely acknowledge him. It’s part of being a security guard, he said. 

“Most people just come in here, ask us a question and just go,” he said. “You feel invisible.”

Visitors may not consider how those guards are often incredibly knowledgable about the art — and may even be artists themselves. In a new audio guide series for the museum called “Beyond the Uniform,” artist Chemi Rosado-Seijo turns the spotlight on Reid and nine other MoMA security guards. In a series of 20 audio essays, the guards each choose a piece of art and speak about it. 

You can listen online even though the museum is closed as part of countrywide stay-at-home orders to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Rosado-Seijo works in a field known as social practice, which is equal parts art and community activism. His projects usually feature marginalized communities.  

When the museum’s education department asked him to come up with a project for MoMA, he said that he knew he wanted to work with security guards. 

“Most of the guards are black or brown, as they call us. Puerto Ricans or Colombians or Dominicans,” he said. “They are the people who maintain or keep the structure of the museum together, but you’re not supposed to see them, in a way.” 

And they don’t usually get asked about the art, even though they’re the ones who are living with it. 

“A lot of the guards are artists themselves, too, and that’s a big reason why they work here.”

Chemi Rosado-Seijo, creator, Beyond the Uniform

“A lot of the guards are artists themselves, too, and that’s a big reason why they work here,” he said.

Reid is a recording artist. He goes by the name LuxuReid and estimates he’s written more than 100 songs. He said the job at the MoMA was “an opportunity to be around art. And expand my horizons.”

In the audio guide, security guard Kevin Reid explains his favorite work of art in the museum: “Untitled (policeman)” by Kerry James Marshall.

Reid even composed a rap for the audio guide. “Mr. Invisible doesn’t make sense to you, he raps. “People look through you but don’t see what’s in you.”

He was inspired by a 2015 painting called “Untitled (policeman)” by the African American artist Kerry James Marshall, which he also discusses in the guide. It’s a monumental portrait of a black police officer in uniform, sitting on the hood of his cruiser, staring off to the side. 

“It’s a very provocative piece. … It connects so much. Black Lives Matter. The senseless police shootings, injustice, prejudice. African Americans in the police force as well. It’s a lot to take in.”

“It’s a very provocative piece,” Reid says of the artwork. “It connects so much. Black Lives Matter. The senseless police shootings, injustice, prejudice. African Americans in the police force as well. It’s a lot to take in.” 

Security guards’ contributions to the audio guide run the gamut. Joseph Tramantano, an actor, drummer and horror fan, discusses film stills from the 1931 version of “Frankenstein.” Eva Luisa Rodríguez does a spoken word performance in front of Frida Kahlo’s “Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair.” José Colon draws parallels between graffiti art and early 20th-century Italian sculpture.

Rabbila Konock explains that Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” which the artist painted during a stay in an asylum in the French countryside, reminds her of home. The night sky is roiling with swirling patterns. The stars, moon and planets glow in circles of yellow and white light. A sleepy little village lies beneath a turbulent sky.

In the audio guide, security guard Rabbila Konock explains how Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting, “Starry Night,” reminds her of her village in Bangladesh.

“I am originally from Bangladesh. My village is similar to this painting,” she chuckles as she explains on the guide. “The night is more alive than the day. I believe he created [this painting] in early morning, before [sunrise]. So sometimes when I have to decide something, I wake up that time, I look outside from the window and [think].” 

Chemi Rosado-Seijo hopes this audio project will be empowering to anyone who listens — especially if they aren’t art experts. 

“I expect people will say, ‘Oh, the guards are talking about the artworks. I can talk about the artworks’.”

Chemi Rosado-Seijo, creator, Beyond the Uniform

“I expect people will say, ‘Oh, the guards are talking about the artworks. I can talk about the artworks’,” he said.

He says all too often, people will start talking about art and then censor themselves. They’ll say stuff like, “’I don’t know art! I shouldn’t be talking about it!”’ Rosado-Seijo said.  

But he insists that art doesn’t have to be so intellectual and rarefied: “Your perspective is valid.” 

Beyond the Uniform was conceived before the coronavirus outbreak and museum closure. Ideally, the listener would hear the audio while visiting the museum and standing in front of the works. 

But Rosado-Seijo sees a silver lining. 

“I actually don’t think [the coronavirus] changes the project at all,” he said. “If anything, it makes the message more urgent.”

After winning praise from across the globe for mitigating the spread of the novel coronavirus, South Korea has held parliamentary elections despite concerns that rolling back distancing and quarantine measures could expose voters to the disease.  

The rising number of coronavirus infections and deaths worldwide has prompted dozens of nations to postpone scheduled elections. Other governments have faced criticism for putting citizens at risk by not calling off their polls — such as during the April 7 primary elections in Wisconsin. 

Related: Is South Korea’s approach to containing coronavirus a model for the rest of the world?

On Wednesday, at least 29 million South Koreans lined up at polling places to cast ballots for the 300-seat National Assembly — a vote that was widely seen as a measure of public support for the government’s response to the pandemic.  

While Seoul has not imposed shelter-in-place orders since the crisis began, a nationwide social distancing policy remains in place until April 19. But on election day, as well as two early voting days last week, some of the official guidance — such as maintaining six feet of space from others and avoiding crowded spaces — was eased to allow the election to take place.     

Additional precautions were adopted to reduce the potential for infection. At polling locations, all voters were required to wear masks and stand just three feet apart from each other. Officials checked their temperatures and applied hand sanitizer on each voter before giving them disposable plastic gloves to handle the paper ballots.

Stations were also set up at medical centers to allow coronavirus patients to participate in the vote.   

Walking underneath a row of blossoming trees alongside a high-rise apartment building, Lee Sa-rang and members of her family waited for about 45 minutes to enter their local polling place — a now-shuttered elementary school in Yongin, a city just south of Seoul.

Lee, who works in private education, says that as the number of COVID-19 cases here continues to decline, she feels it was safe enough as well as important to cast her vote now.     

“Everyone is taking their vote very seriously,” the 32-year old said.  

“Everyone is taking their vote very seriously. … Life needs to go on.”

“Life needs to go on,” Lee said, adding that voting signifies a return to “normalcy” for Korea and that the way in which the country’s leadership has confronted the coronavirus “reaffirmed” her support for the ruling party.  

Voter turnout was at a 28-year high, according to media reports. South Korea, which experienced a large-scale COVID-19 outbreak in February, has since flattened the curve thanks in part to widely available diagnostic tests and a technological infrastructure that has allowed for rapid contact tracing of infections.

Some observers say candidates affiliated with President Moon Jae-in’s Democratic Party, which recently adopted the slogan “We protect the people — we’re winning the battle against the coronavirus,” have campaigned on this success in order to win spots in the National Assembly.     

“They’re saying we’ve handled this pandemic better than any other country in the world. … This public relations campaign will help the ruling party.”

“They’re saying we’ve handled this pandemic better than any other country in the world,” said Gi-wook Shin, director of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center at Stanford University.  “This public relations campaign will help the ruling party.”  

Exit polls show the Democratic Party with a strong lead over the main conservative opposition. The final vote tally will be released on Thursday. 

The Korea Centers for Disease Control reported on Wednesday that for the third consecutive day, new coronavirus cases slipped below 30, bringing the country’s total number of infections to 10,591. More than half of all patients have already been released from medical care, government data shows.  

Deaths attributed to COVID-19 have reached 225, according to the KCDC. But officials are still concerned about cluster outbreaks inside churches and hospitals as well as infections linked to Koreans who have recently returned from abroad. Since April 1, all inbound travelers are required to self-quarantine for 14 days. 

Before leaving the airport, new arrivals must install a smartphone health check app, which allows authorities to identify COVID-19 symptoms as well as track the movements of users.  

On election day, quarantine restrictions were temporarily lifted and polling stations were kept open to allow some 13,000 recent returnees to briefly leave their homes and vote.

“It’s too hasty to conclude that the coronavirus is gone. … The election should have  been postponed.”

Hwang Myung-jin, researcher, Korea University 

These relaxed measures put the public in danger, said Hwang Myung-jin, who researches social policy at Korea University. 

“It’s too hasty to conclude that the coronavirus is gone,” he said. “The election should have  been postponed.”  

Hwang fears that South Korea could see another spike in new coronavirus cases. 

Surveys leading up to Wednesday’s polls showed strong approval for President Moon, which was not the case prior to the start of the pandemic, due in part to a sluggish economy

For some voters, the election was a chance to show their frustration with his other policies.

“The cost of living has gone up too high under this administration,” Kim Hyeong- jun, a 60-year old businessman said after casting his vote in Yongin. “The government raised the minimum wage and that’s hurting the owners of small companies.”

The coronavirus has only exasperated some of South Korea’s pre-existing economic problems, with government figures showing a sharp rise in unemployment claims as well as a drop in new job creations. 

Stanford’s Gi-wook Shin says these concerns could have cost the ruling party some seats in the National Assembly.   

“The government may have been quite successful in containing the virus, but it doesn’t mean they have been successful in dealing with the economic situation,” he said.

In an attempt to deflect blame from his own ineffective handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic, US President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he would halt funding to the World Health Organization, pending a review. World leaders, including the United Nations, swiftly denounced the move. The WHO is at the helm of the COVID-19 crisis, which has infected nearly 2 million people worldwide, including more than 600,000 in the US. Trump has been widely criticized for his response to the public health crisis and for spreading disinformation from the bully pulpit.

And the AP reports China delayed informing the public of a potential pandemic from the novel coronavirus for six key days in January, which may have changed the trajectory of the disease.

And: Bolsonaro’s denial of coronavirus puts the country at risk

Online threats increase amid pandemic

Computer games and apps have helped maintain connections as people remain self-isolated. But as screentime has increased, cybercrime has surged in recent weeks. Hospitals, companies and even individuals are targets. That’s where the COVID-19 Cyber Threat Intelligence League steps in. The group of over a thousand cybersecurity experts from around the world volunteer their time to help fend off attacks.

And: The Pentagon hasn’t fixed basic cybersecurity blind spots

Also: Do screen time rules still apply in lockdown?

Israel’s Arab citizens contemplate their future under Trump peace plan

Israel’s Arab citizens living in so-called “Triangle communities” may become citizens of Palestine under Trump’s “peace to prosperity” plan. If implemented, some 350,000 Arab Israeli citizens could lose their citizenship. They would not relocate, but they would become citizens of the Palestinian Authority. But not all of them are ready to give up their Israeli citizenship.

And: Scarce resources in Syria’s rebel-held areas amid COVID-19 fears: Only one machine to test samples available in area with over three million people.

US deportations could be spreading the virus

While many countries, including the US, have limited international commercial aviation because of the COVID-19 pandemic, planes deporting people from the US are still taking off. The flights not only put people in deportation proceedings at risk, but also threaten to spread the coronavirus to countries ill-equipped to deal with the disease. Guatemala’s health minister said that on one such flight arriving in the country, about 75% of those deported tested positive for the virus.  

Also, “You Clap for Me Now,” a coronavirus poem featuring immigrants who are essential workers in Britain, hits on racism in the UK.

Joy in water: One family’s life in the Chinese mountains of Tianmushan

“The intelligent find joy in water. If Confucius is right, we must all be prodigies. We moved to this mountain village, a three-hour drive from our home in Shanghai, because of the water, because of the air, because the inner-city pollution was quite literally making us sick.”

Art historian Lindsay Shen writes about the refuge her family found in the cool, clear streams of the mountain village of Tianmushan, China, in Zhejiang Province.

While US President Donald Trump clashed with state governors over plans to reopen the economy, French President Emmanuel Macron announced Tuesday that France will remain under lockdown for four more weeks. And, earlier this month, top cybersecurity officials in the US and the UK issued a warning about COVID-19-related scams and phishing attempts.

Heartbreak, heartbreak is a motherfucker
I know, I know but I found a way to
Deal though, deal though, it took work to get the wheels are moving on, wheels are moving on
Can’t stay, can’t stay on a used lover

You though, you thought it took work to get these feelings turning off, feelings turning off

Oh, my, my, my, my, my
I see you moving side to side, side, side, side, side
Two hands on you that aren’t mine, mine, mine, mine, mine
You never know how much you’re on somebody ’til they’re on somebody else
So my, my, my, my, my

And tell my body I’ll be fine, fine, fine, fine, fine
You never know how much you’re on somebody ’til they’re on somebody else

Heartbreak, heartbreak is a motherfucker
Lay low, lay low, that’s how they tell you to
Let go, letting go went out the window
Soon as I saw you pull up from two

Wishing I went somewhere else and left you in my dreams

Morgan Wallen – This Bar Lyrics

[Chorus 1]
I found myself in this bar
Making mistakes and making new friends
Us growing up and nothing made sense
Buzzing all night like neon in the dark
I found myself in this

[Verse 1]
Couldn’t wait to turn 21
The day I did, I got too drunk
Spinning around dizzy on the patio
Found out real quick how to take it slow
Got whiskey bent on whiskey sours
Ran my mouth to an out-of-towner
Learned a big lesson when I met the bouncer

[Chorus 1]
I found myself in this bar
Making mistakes and making new friends
Us growing up and nothing made sense
Buzzing all night like neon in the dark
I found myself in this bar

[Post Chorus]
Ooh woah oh
Ooh woah oh
Ooh woah oh
I found myself in this bar

[Verse 2]
Saw her in the corner sippin’ something tall
Cracked a few jokes, we hit off
Get down the road I’m watching her
Walk through the door with some new jerk
And we had it good, and it hurts so bad
But I had to stand my ground
Chased my pride with another round

[Chorus 2]
I found myself in this bar
Making mistakes and making new friends
Us growing up and nothing made sense
Learning how to live with a broken heart
I found myself in this bar

[Post Chorus]
Ooh woah oh
Ooh woah oh
Ooh woah oh

[Bridge]
Those nights what I would give for one more Bud Light
Still kissing on the front porch
Didn’t even know what I was looking for

But I found myself in this bar
I found myself in this bar
I found myself in this bar
Ain’t it a stranger thing you keep tucked in your heart
I found myself in this bar

[Intro]
Ayy, Ayy

[Verse 1: YP14]
Mama always said, “Pray for the best, expect the worst
Don’t make promises of you go back on your word
If you’re doing it wrong, you’ve got willing to work”
Hit a search and grab the dosh, gotta get to it first
See, I grew up in church
But I had devils in my ears saying “Fuck it!”
Control it, my young mind like a puppet
Had me skipping school, ditching satties in the alley as a young’un
Never a boss, bruh, I was running
(Ayy) Tryna slang bud just to get paid
Now boys got beef, I had to run with a blade
See my bro’ got-got, and that’s when my heart changed
Took a couple L’s, but that’s part of the game
Live and learn, take how it comes
And if it kicks off, brother, don’t run
I was taught from young, that I’d be trapped in the system
Didn’t listen, and that’s how I got done

[Pre-Chorus: YP14]
See, I’m just trying to make to a living, lad, and just do me
See, I ain’t stopping ’til they set me free
(Uhh) We stand firm to the word “F-T-P!”
Praying for somebody to rescue me
(Ayy) Train hard, my brother, and stay staunch
Listen, don’t be another victim lost to the system
And you’ll be eetswa when they come to meet ya
We say, “My nigga, welcome to prison” (Ayy)

[Chorus]
Free my brothers in the yard and that
Can’t wait ’til they all come back, ’til they all come back
OneFour, part of the gang
2-7, where my heart is at, where my heart is at
We chop dogs too easy, got locked up too easy
And now I’m on T.V
I bet they’ll burn when they see me walk
They’d rather see me in between these walls

[Verse 2: JM14]
Expect the worst, hope for the best
Keep ’em close if you know they’re down for stretch
They call us ball runners with the utmost respect
We’re all known in the system, there’s not much of us left
You’re also called “The common snitch, biggest bitch
A dog that couldn’t take the pressure for what he did”
The lowest of lowest that you can get as a crim’
Having never met the rest of them down in protection
Separate from the rest of us
‘Cause our instincts always got the best of us
Paranoid, thinking now there’s no one left to trust
Don’t get me wrong, the boys in here just don’t give a fuck
But why he’s acting sus’
Heard them fellas over there, tryna take me for an Inner
Eetswa, I’m just gonna chill away
Fuck waiting another day
Pull up to his cell, give him hell
I want all you got
Put inside this pillowcase and don’t forget your dinner tray

[Pre-Chorus: JM14]
See, I’m just trying to make to a living, lad, and just do me
See, I ain’t stopping ’til they set me free
We stand firm to the word “F-T-P!”
Praying for somebody to rescue me
(Uhh) Train hard, my brother, and stay staunch
Listen, don’t be another victim lost to the system
And you’ll be eetswa when they come to meet ya
We say, “My nigga, welcome to prison” (Ayy)

Can’t wait ’til they all come back, ’til they all come back

We chop dogs too easy, got locked up too easy
And now I’m on T.V
I bet they’ll burn when they see me walk
They’d rather see me in between these walls (Ayy)
Free my brothers in the yard and that
Can’t wait ’til they all come back, ’til they all come back

We chop dogs too easy, got locked up too easy
And now I’m on T.V

They’d rather see me in between these walls (Ayy)

Play this song

[Verse 1]
I don’t hate you
No, I couldn’t if I wanted to
I just hate all the hurt that you put me through
And that I blame myself for letting you
Did you know I already knew?

[Pre-Chorus]
Couldn’t even see you through the smoke
Lookin’ back I probably should have known
But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin’ alone

[Chorus]
Hurt me with your worst intentions
Didn’t even start to question
Every time you burn me down
Don’t know how, for a moment, it felt like heaven
Love me with your worst intentions
Painted us a happy ending
Every time you burn me down
Don’t know how, for a moment, it felt like heaven

[Post-Chorus]
And it’s so good, mention
Fallin’ in the wrong direction

[Verse 2]
On my tip-toes
But I still couldn’t reach your ego
Guess I was crazy to give you my body, my mind
Don’t know what I was thinkin’, too long
Everyone thinks that your somebody else
You even convinced yourself

[Pre-Chorus]
Couldn’t even see you through the smoke
Lookin’ back I probably should have known
But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin’ alone

[Chorus]
Hurt me with your worst intentions
Didn’t even start to question
Every time you burn me down
Don’t know how, for a moment, it felt like heaven
Love me with your worst intentions
Painted us a happy ending
Every time you burn me down
Don’t know how, for a moment, it felt like heaven

[Post-Chorus]
And it’s so good, mention (Ooh, ooh)
Fallin’ in the wrong direction (Ooh, ooh)
How did you sweep me off of my feet, baby, I can’t heal
Fallin’ in the wrong direction
How did you sweep me off of my feet, right off my feet

[Pre-Chorus]
Couldn’t even see you through the smoke
Lookin’ back I probably should have known
But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin’ alone

[Chorus]
Hurt me with your worst intentions
Didn’t even start to question (Oh no)
Every time you burn me down
Don’t know how, for a moment, it felt like heaven
Love me with your worst intentions
Painted us a happy ending
Every time you burn me down (Me down)
Don’t know how, for a moment, it felt like heaven

[Post-Chorus]
And it’s so good, mention
Fanllin’ in the wrong direction

Morgan Wallen – Collide Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You’re barely waking
And I’m tangled up in you, yeah

I’m open, you’re closed
Where I follow, you’ll go
I worry I won’t see your face
Light up again

[Chorus]
Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find you and I collide

[Verse 2]
I’m quiet you know
You make a first impression
I’ve found I’m scared to know
I’m always on your mind

[Chorus]
Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find you and I collide

[Bridge]
Don’t stop here
I lost my place
I’m close behind

[Chorus]
Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find you and I collide

[Outro]
You finally find you and I collide
You finally find you and I collide

She wanna go off on a cruise and I’m not tryna lose

Every time I’m leavin’ on ya

Fightin’ for my trust and you won’t back down
Even if we gotta risk it all right now, oh
I know you’re scared of the unknown
You don’t wanna be alone
I know I always come and go
But it’s out of my control

[Chorus]
And you’ll be left in the dust, unless I stuck by ya
You’re the sunflower, I think your love would be too much
Or you’ll be left in the dust, unless I stuck by ya

[Verse 1]
Found you when your heart was broke
I filled your cup until it overflowed
Took it so far to keep you close (Keep you close)
I was afraid to leave you on your own

[Pre-Chorus]
I said I’d catch you if you fall (Fall)
And if they laugh, then trick ’em all (All)
And then I got you off your knees
Put you right back on your feet
Just so you could take advantage of it

[Chorus]
Tell me, how’s it feel sittin’ up there?
Feelin’ so fly, but too far away to hold me
You know I’m the one who put you up there
Name in the sky, does it ever get lonely?
Thinking you could live without me
Thinking you could live without me
Baby, I’m the one who put you up there
I don’t know why (Yeah, I don’t know why)
Thinking you could live without me
Live without me
Baby, I’m the one who put you up there
I don’t know why (I don’t know why, yeah, yeah)

[Verse 2]
Gave love ’bout a hundred tries (Hundred tries)
Just running from the feelings in your mind
Then I took yours and made ’em mine (Mine)
I didn’t notice ’cause my love was blind

[Pre-Chorus]
Said I’d catch you if you fall (Fall)
And if they laugh, then trick ’em all (All)
And then I got you off your knees
Put you right back on your feet

Tell me, how’s it feel sittin’ up there?

Thinking you could live without me
Live without me
Baby, I’m the one who put you up there

You don’t have to say just what you did (What you did)
I already know (I know)
I had to go and find out from them (Oh-woah)
So tell me, how’s it feel? (Oh-woah)

Always hanging on
Always in the frame

But I ain’t john mayer, play the guitar for y’all
Got a job full of good incase it go bad
I got what you want, got that shit you like
Got a gelato, roll a big blunt for y’all
She gon’ call me up, we gon’ pipe down, it’s all love
Her friends don’t fuck with me, fuck them, they all suck

Maybe not right now

Saw what I saw, ain’t gotta tell you why

Hanging on by a thread ‘cus I don’t wanna fall

Hanging on by a thread ‘cus I don’t wanna fall
‘Cus I’m tired, I’m tired of hanging, wow

[Bridge]
You can call whenever
But I don’t wait forever
Pedal to the medal
I’ve been dancing with the devil
I went up a couple levels
Did this shit together
Built it from the ground up

[Hook]
Fuck a wedding ring
Cause everything is love
Back out in the field
Know I got her with that glove
Smoking out the window
On the way to get that dub
And the only L I ever hold
Was the one I wrote for the plug

[Verse 1]
Phone ringing plug calling
That’s a plug walk
Ah baby
Don’t tell me what you don’t want
I’m trying to stay focused on the good things
All good things, baby, all good things
Room service, two bottles just to unwind
Call two bitches over at one time
Both of them came over
Not one mine
All good things, baby, all good things
She could tell I’m not the type of guy
To front behind her back
She could tell that if she trip with me
I ain’t gonna break her fall
She can tell Imma eat it
If it’s looking like a snack
And if I like then I’m sliding
Bitch I’m safe

[Hook]
Fuck a wedding ring
Cause everything is love
Back out in the field
Know I got her with that glove
Smoking out the window
On the way to get that dub
That’s facts

You can call whenever
But I don’t wait forever
Pedal to the medal
I’ve been dancing with the devil
I went up a couple levels
Did this shit together
Built it from the ground up

[Verse 2]
Let me paint the pieces of my life
Here like a puzzle
Came out with my dogs
And none of us hang with no muzzles
We gonna let this shit fly
Yeah this shit get you in trouble
At least this life is mine
And I ain’t living undercover
I don’t make excuses
I make reservations
And all that’s always love
I ain’t never hating, nah
We ain’t going crazy
We just celebrating
This for all the times
We though we’d never make it
That’s facts

[Hook]
Fuck a wedding ring
Cause everything is love
Back out in the field
Know I got her with that glove
Smoking out the window
On the way to get that dub
And the only L I ever hold
Was the one I wrote for the plug

Fuck a wedding ring

[Chorus]
There’s no denying
The army is rising
Call me a Titan
Thunder and lightning
The circle need tightening
The hustle, I dive in
Strugglin’, strivin’
My business, I’m mindin’
Don’t tell me where your mind is
I already know, I’m a psychic
Any time it’s a crisis
We’re the strongest and the wisest
Free, all my lifers
Rise up your lighters
Before you fully rise up
We haffi remove the virus

[Verse 1]
Ain’t seeing nothing like this
Juju J in live flesh
You know me, I’m the livest
Call on all your riders
Call on all your strikers
Me, I don’t even fear death
You don’t know me, I’m fearless
Me, I’m out here bare chest
You can’t come nowhere near us
When man start moving careless
Clap the man that’s nearest
I don’t hit one, I hit various
JME, I’m serious (Serious)
Juju J is my alias (Alias)
Mad man, the craziest
In a hundred mile radius
My best friend is anonymous
You need to hit man
Come and holler us
I’m shaking all your chakras
Gotta stop smoking cannabis
Everyday, different challenges
Never had worthy challengers
Me and you are different calibres
Every day, wake up, manifest
Say you shot a man but I’m not impressed
My new girl is on house arrest
Baby girl, I wish you all the best
I’m on the roadside but I’m playing chess
Niggas all the same, more or less
You know I hit man, you a hit and miss
Everyone I don’t like, I write a list
But a fisherman needs a bigger fish

[Chorus]
There’s no denying
The army is rising
Call me a Titan
Thunder and lightning
The circle need tightening
The hustle, I dive in
Strugglin’, strivin’
My business, I’m mindin’
Don’t tell me where your mind is
I already know, I’m a psychic
Any time it’s a crisis
We’re the strongest and the wisest
Free, all my lifers
Rise up your lighters
Before you fully rise up
We haffi remove the virus

Anywhere I go, I come with Duppy
He don’t wan’ bust his shotty

I been hustling, you smell me?
If you see them man, come and tell me
In the hood, they call me “Mamadou”
I dump on you, you likkle fucker yute
I know one guy from Cameroon
Said the big Bonsam is coming soon
That guy right there is not a goon
Swear he was born with a silver spoon
Coulda took that gyal dere to my room
But I took that gyal dere to the moon
You don’t really know me, you just assume
Uncle Tom you’re just a coon
Had to spray out one buffoon
Had to spray, it’s nothing new
Make some way, I’m coming through
All my friend wan’ do is boot
I might just give him the alley-oop
Dem man there don’t know their roots
Dem man there dilute the truth
I can’t smoke my zoot ’round you
‘Cause you always ask for a two’s
Where’s my laces? Where’s my shoes?
Dem man come like passionfruit
I don’t know them random yutes
I was chilling, sipping hooch

[Chorus]
There’s no denying
The army is rising
Call me a Titan
Thunder and lightning
The circle need tightening
The hustle, I dive in
Strugglin’, strivin’
My business, I’m mindin’
Don’t tell me where your mind is
I already know, I’m a psychic
Any time it’s a crisis
We’re the strongest and the wisest
Free all my lifers
Rise up your lighters
Before you fully rise up
We haffi remove the virus

[Part 1]

[Intro: Charlie Sloth & Juice WRLD]
“You know what time it is when you hear this, right?”
“Uuuh, let’s get ready to ruuumble!”
Hit-Boy (Uh)
“Oh, it’s a Hit-Boy joint, huh?”
[?]
“Yeah, okay, huh, okay, uh uh, okay, uh uh, okay, hm.”
Onyx

[Verse: Juice WRLD]
Baby, I’m stuck in my ways
It’s been a couple of days
I could fuck you for days
Guess I’m stuck in my ways
Yes, I’m young and I’m paid
So they hearts getting slayed
I’m a rebel, I’m a rockstar, take you to the grave, uh
Molly at the rave, yes I misbehave, uh huh
Molly at the rave, yes I misbehave, uh huh
I’m gon’ do the dash on my dirt bike, fuck a wraith
Everybody the same color to me, I’m screaming fuck a race
Anybody want a problem with me, they gon’ get erased
My pencil, ay
I got the life pencil, erase your ass away
Listen to the way I spit on it, huh
Look at this beat, I’ma get on it, huh
No hip-hop but I’ma spin on it, huh
Your girl said she got’ spit on it, huh
That nigga don’t got shit on me, huh
That nigga fake, that nigga hate
Bitch, I am Givenchy, he Abercrombie, it’s a difference that I make
All the money that I make is mine, just won’t a nigga ever take
I don’t never really take my time, especially when I be spitting lines
This is off the dome when I hit it
Freestyle, I ain’t rippin’ the written
Beat the pussy, I don’t fuck with the kitten
In the cut probably holdin’ a Smith &
That’s Cupid, tryna make me shuffle like Cupid
No Nike, but I just do it
Juice WRLD, Triple 9, that’s a movement
Yeah, molly at the rave, I misbehave
Hm, molly at the rave, I’m gon’ misbehave
Freestyle a song on the radio, damn near everyday
Ayy, molly at the rave, I’m gon’ misbehave
See, it’s me and Charlie, we in the party
I’m feeling gnarly, I’m off a perky, mixed with the molly
If she want a train, I’ll call a trolly
I get it popping
I’m Tony Hawk and I feel like a ollie
But I’m on a beat like a damn Kamikaze
I’m a rockstar, Black Sabbath, no Ozzy
Pull up in a Mazi, nigga can’t stop me
I come out like Rocky
I’m young and rich and humble during when I ain’t too cocky
But shit, muck around with my hand on my cock
Gun to the opps, run up get popped
I’m at the Gucci shop, buy what I want, yeah
Cause I deserve it, my flow is perfect (Perfect)
There’s snakes in the grass, with my John Deer helmet see the serpents
God gave me this sermon, he told me I earned it
Looking at the bridges that I’m tryna rebuild
Should’ve never burned ’em
That’s life, it’s trial and error, niggas is full of mistakes
I’m eating so good that I had to put VVS’s on my plate
I’m working out my problems, my demons ain’t in good shape
But I’m in better shape
Boxing the devil, like damn he didn’t know I was a heavyweight
(He’s heating up)
But I still misbehave
Molly at the rave, still misbehave
Chains ’round my neck, I told you, I ain’t finna be no slave
Put that on my grave
Molly at the rave, misbehave

[Part 2]

[Interlude: Charlie Sloth & Juice WRLD]
“Are you a special guy, Juice WRLD, now you’re a special guy!”
(Hit-Boy)
“You’re a special guy!”
“Thank you, brother.”
“Are-Are you freestyle [?] full songs, my G. Wow.”
“Oof.”
“Okay, okay, yeah, uh huh, uh, uh huh”
“I like this one.”
“Uh huh, uh huh, yeah, uh, uh huh, look, uh.”
(Hadou-Hadou-Hadouken)
“Let’s get ’em, Juice, let’s get ’em!”

[Verse: Juice WRLD]
I’ma spaz, breathing fire like a dragon
Nigga off a Xan, on the track I’m probably draggin’
I don’t get time for these ticks and these maggots
Automatic flows, load my verbs up, let ’em have it
Ballin’ like a maverick
Make ’em disappear, magic
Niggas get in a accident, fuck with me, it’s tragic
They don’t want no smoke, nah, they don’t want no cancer
Prayin’ that they find a cure to cancer, we need answers
Shitting on my ex so much that I don’t got no manners
Up in school, I used to skip, and wrote that dogie in my planner, uh
I go nuts like planets, uh, all of this God’s plan, uh, man
Hope you understand I shoot like a child from Afghanistan, uh, yeah
Look, switch my flow up, mix the liquor with the percs
Hope I don’t throw up, lean I pour up
Need some mo’ until I got red guts, ’til I got purp’ guts
Niggas can’t fuck with us, huh
Mayweather with the uppercut, uh
Hit him in the stomach like five or six times ’til he had enough, uh
Freestyle I kick it, off of the dome like a frog, I rip it
Hop on the beat, you know I rip it
Rip it to riddance, rip it to smithereens
They don’t wanna fuck with me, I’m with the fuckery
Rushin’ hours, I would kick high like Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker be, damn (Perfect)
Bitch I’m confident, this flow to me it’s common sense
Uh huh, I’m gonna bomb, no offense on that Osama shit, uh huh
That’s your mama shit, put my dick up in your mama shit, uh huh
WWW, ain’t on shit dot com and shit, uh huh
Look at my flow though, I’m outta space, bitch, I’m on Pluto
Like the eyes, I’m a wizard but I’m a dog, call me Toto
Pose for the photo, that lil’ bitch dance like Gogo, oh
No-no, she get low-low like a limbo
Fuck her then I pass her to my kinfolk, ugh
007 with the ammo, uh
Pull up on the scene like Rambo, uh
Money older than your grandfolks’ grandfolks
Nigga you cannot handle, oh, huh
Yo bitch up in my hand like a Game Boy
Then again I turn that power off, this not no game, boy
Barack Obama always wanted to change, boy
Pennies, dimes, quarters, all tonight, I want the change, boy
My niggas from over East, you know they got that range, boy
I’m sad to say this not no XBOX, not no game, boy
Huh, not no game, boy, this not no game, boy
Ain’t no PS, ain’t no XBOX, not no game, boy
Go insane boy, this is off the brain, boy
But not no PS, not no XBOX, not no BS
Nigga, I won’t stop

[Part 3]

[Interlude: Charlie Sloth & Juice WRLD]
“Wow, wow! Juice WRLD blew that. That-That shit really be freestyle, right?”
“Off the dome.”
“I don’t know how you do that.”
“How ’bout we try this?
This next song, (Yeah) is to prove to these motherfuckers, just throw words out there”
“You want me to throw different words out there?”
“Every now ‘n’ then, just throw words out there.”
“Just- o-oh my gosh.”
“Yeah.”
“I nee-I nee-I need people to understand, that normally when-when the (Yeah) artists comes in to do Fire in the Booth, they would’ve taken like three months to write it. They will always sit down to write it, and they’ll prepare it. And you,”
“Yeah. See, look.”
“You just come in here, and said, ‘I don’t wanna hear the beats,’”
“Yeah
“‘I-I just wanna freestyle over the beats.’”
“Uh huh.”
“A-And now you’re saying, ‘Throw some words at me, Sloth.’”
“Yup. Some words, fuckin’ words.”
“Alright.”
“Mhm.”
“I mean, I struggle with even words, I don’t know how you freestyle.”
“I mean, I can barely talk, I guess as well.”
Hit-Boy

[Verse: Juice WRLD & Charlie Sloth]
Uh, on these words I’m intricate
But when I speak to him, I’m a little illiterate
I’m balling on these ho’s
Best believe I’ma get it
I’m tryna get that rich money like I’m Ellen DeGeneres
I’m killing it, killing it, uh, I’ma hit a lick
Like I’m licking the clitoris, uh
I’ma keep on killing, drilling, full of adrenaline, uh
I feel like a villain, Dragon Ball, I’m like Krillin or some’in’
I’ma get this cash, best believe that I’m spendin’ it
Then I’m getting it back
Bobby Brown up in the trap, from the way I’m spitting this crack
Nigga, to be exact my flow is off of the map
Every time that I spit all these niggas toppin’ they hats
Sayin’ I am the mannequin
Nigga’s faking it, they mannequins
Walk in the sky like I’m Anakin
Gucci all on my flannel
People thinking they understand but they really can’t comprehend
I’m that TV station, you can’t reach the channel
Really, really these niggas are just too silly
I’m Meek Milly, what flow is how I pop a wheelie
Run through the six, like woes
I fuck with Drizzy, every song Drake hop on, he bound to get busy
Every song that Juice hop on is bound to get icky
Fuck the beat until it cums so I’m leaving it sticky
(Freeze ’ems)
Niggas can’t fuck with me, you know that I beat ’em
Ice on my wrist, I finna freeze ’em
Life is a bitch, fuck with me, she’ll leave ya
I’m ballin’ out, every day I’m a hit ’em
Got my hand on my heater
They say they don’t fuck with me
Shit, I don’t fuck with me either
We one of the same people
Nah, we different
I’m at the top and you at the bottom
It’s a Magnum in my pocket, a gun
I saw a condom, niggas thinkin’ it snakes, but I see the anaconda
Really, I’m just gonna sing this shit like it’s an opera
(Free 21 Savage)
Free 21 Savage, they tryna send him back to UK
He livin’ lavish, he over here gettin’ too payed
They can’t manage, they wanna see a nigga fail
That’s how they planned it (He’s on fire)
But I’ma continue to go nuts like planets
Listenin’ to Red Opps, 21, he’s spazzing
And me, I got fire, I feel like a dragon
I’m flying on this beat like a carpet, Aladdin
I’m out of space, on Saturn, I’m spitting these flows
You know how it is, I rap a little to switch up the flow
This shit for the kids, I do it for the people back home
That didn’t believe I’m finna take a shit in they house
(London City)
And then I’ma leave
You said London?
We get it bustin’ up in London, like a concussion
Off of the top, the way I run it, explode like combustin’
You ain’t talking money, then fuck it
That’s the end of discussion, man (Perfect)
I can’t believe what I’m saying
(Cherries and oranges)
I can’t believe what I’m saying, you know this shit ain’t a plan, huh
Ay, I’m at your door, warning ya, huh
Banana clip, aim at your orange and shit
Really, I’m just at your fuckin’ cabinet like a cabbage patch
I ain’t with the battle rap
But if I wanted I could battle rap any battle rapper, and body him
Put him in a pill and pop him like he was Molly and
(Cardi B)
Ayy, Cardi B she got them hits too
Cardi B, she that bitch too, Cardi B and she rich too
I’m tryna get Cardi B rich, you feel me fool?
Man, I got the money in my pocket though, a couple in my wallet
With some minions in my face, I dare a nigga try to stop it
Please don’t get out of pocket, we get the pop and the knockin’s
I remember bein’ in Illinois’s Robin and Robin
‘Fore Robins couldn’t afford it
Now I’m payin’ my mortgage
I just bought my mom a car so you know that she gorgeous
Pull up on ’em, I’m ballin’, shooting I’m feeling like Spartan’
Matter of fact, I’m Michael Jordan
From the free throw, I been soaring, ya dig?

[Part 4]

[Interlude: Charlie Sloth & Juice WRLD]
“I don’t think I’ve met anyone like you in my life, bro. It’s been real. Wow.”
“Thank you, bro.”
“That, I was struggling to come up with words. I didn’t even know I could do that, I couldn’t even think of words. You were comin’ up with whole songs, and I was strugglin’, [?] what could I say, aho. We’ll do one more?”
“Mhm.”
“Yeah?”
“Let’s do it.”
“How’s that taste? That taste good?”
“Mango.”
“Mango?”
“I’ll be asleep bro. I’ll be, wargh.”
“No no. This is-This is nicotine.”
“Oh, is it?”
“Yeah.”
“Alright, lemme try that.”
“It’s nicotine. Hits good, doesn’t it?”
“Yeah, that’s good, man.”
“It’s like a cigarette, a little bit.”
“You wanna-Try my one.”
“It was you that had that big ass rig?”
“Yeah, yes yes.”
“But they don’t sell Juul pods in-in-in London that have 5% nicotine, though.”
“Right.”
“This has 5, y’all have, what was it? Maximum 1?”
“That’s 3.”
“1.7.”
“It’s 3? I think all y’alls have 3 though, right?”
“3 maximum. Them shits was trash.”
“Shit. It’s cloudy.”
“Yeah. I f- I-I couldn’t even do this- I remember when I couldn’t even do this. I used to try and blow clouds, and I would be-”
“I-I hope I don’t get fired for doing this in the studio, ’cause m-my bosses are outside.”
“It’s not no weed.”
“I- yeah, I mean, I don’t wanna get fired, I just started.”
“Well, you’re in America, dude.”
“What-What… Was that caramel?”
“Uh?”
“That’s caramel?”
“Yeah, it’s nice, huh?”
“If crème brûlée Juul tasted like that, I-I would smoke crème brûlée, but crème brûlée tastes horrible.”
Hit-Boy

[Verse: Juice WRLD & Charlie Sloth]
Yeah
Okay, Hit-Boy
Are you never heard this one either?
Nope
Okay
Okay, Hit-Boy
Let’s get it, Juice!
Okay, Hit-Boy, you the shit, boy
Me and you go make some songs and get rich, boy (Woo)
I just told you I’ve been paying my mama rent, boy (Ooh)
That’s the best money that I ever spent, boy (C’mon!)
I’ma pull up in an all black Benz, boy
Sippin’ codeine with my black friends, boy (Uh huh)
I’ma pull up on the facade she live boy (Hey!)
Every day you know I’m bound to get it there, boy (Yeah!)
Me and Charlie Sloth gettin’ to this money all day (Okay)
Rockin’ Ksubi in the mirror, yeah, I don’t do the Balmains (Uh)
Knock it out the park, and we talkin’ a ball game
Like I said, Barack Obama, I’m really with all change (Uh huh)
Charlie got the Vikings on his shirt, I’m like a Viking (Woof)
Fuck a bitch and leave her, guess I’m a little too triflin’ (Oof; Perfect)
I’ma Mike & Ike it, I’ma Mike & Ike it
Fist up with the clip tuck, good at fightin’
Knock ’em out in one or two punches, I’m Tyson
Listen to the next project you better buy it (Mm)
It’s gon’ be the realest shit you heard, I ain’t lyin’
It’s gon’ be the realest shit you heard, I ain’t lyin’ (Yeah!)
I’m defyin’ 2012, and it’s real like the Mayans
Kill every beat and I ain’t even really tryin’
I’ma tell the truth, no frontin’, no lyin’
I bop to survive, my flow is the hottest
The highest, the fliest
Flyer than a pilot, my gun a library and it got a silence
But I still want Santa-ty in a piece, so
So I’ll do anything to kill all the violence
But back in Chicago is bustin’
Niggas really shooting guns like the shit is nothing
Killing mom’s kids and children, but this shit is disgusting
We gon’ need more than a talk, more than a discussion
All I know is get the cash, yeah, get the cash
Catch up, tell them niggas, “Catch up”
They gon’ need some backup
Remember hittin’ stains like mustard and ketchup
Now I’m 200 MPH, they won’t catch us
If you can, but you can’t
I’m the motherfucking champ
You ain’t Triple 9, then fuck you, get the fuck out my camp
Niggas thinking that they in it
They always come and doubt until I ball like a warrior
Switch up like I’m Durant
I’m a shoot from the three, niggas can’t fuck with me
Not with the fuckery
Hotter than the summer be
Niggas really think they spell it out
But I’ma spell it clearly
Like a nigga gettin’ an “A” and doing a fucking spelling bee

[Outro: Charlie Sloth & Juice WRLD]
“Ay! Juice WRLD in the building!”
“Uh huh.”
“Man, you just made my day, bro.”
“You just made my day, bro.”
“And that in the rest of my life.”
“Man, love love.”
“Just to- Just to re-in-store the faith.”
“Love, sir.”
“Lyrics is still there, pull neck.”
“Yes, sir.”
“Know what I mean? I need that in my life.”
“Yes, sir.”
“Woo.”

Play this song

[Intro: ROSALÍA]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus: Travis Scott]
I got room, in my fumes (Yeah)
She fill my mind up with ideas
I’m the highest in the room (It’s lit)
Hope I make it outta here (Let’s go)

[Verse 1: Travis Scott, ROSALÍA & Both]
She saw my eyes, she know I’m gone (Ah)
I see some things that you might fear
I’m doin’ a show, I’ll be back soon (Soon)
That ain’t what she wanna hear (Nah)
Now I got her in my room (Ah)
Legs wrapped around my beard (Uh)
Got the fastest car, it zoom (Zoom)
Hope we make it outta here
When I’m with you, I feel alive
You say you love me, don’t you lie (Yeah)
Won’t cross my heart, don’t wanna die
Keep the pistol on my side (Yeah)

[Chorus: Travis Scott & ROSALÍA]
Case it’s fumes
She fill my mind up with ideas (Straight up)
I’m the highest in the room (It’s lit)
Hope I make it outta here (Let’s go)

[Verse 2: ROSALÍA & Travis Scott]
Su black Ferrari le doy gas (Uh)
Caballos suenan con delay (‘Lay)
Si quieres duro el quiere má’
Aquí siempre hay un beso de ley (Uy)
Si ahora de fiera no me fuera a conocer
Chaqueta al hombro y la cadena hasta el pie
Si ahora de fiera no me fuera a conocer (We can’t)
Lolly-lollypop viene cash (Yeah)
Ay, shine ya la’ joya’ (Yeah)
Balas que duelen por detrás (Yeah)
Broom broom, yo también acicalá (‘Cicalá)
Ojalá que me cojas confesá’

[Refrain: Travis Scott]
Ah, this my life, I did not choose
Uh, been on this since we was kids
We gon’ stay on top and break the rules
Uh, I fill my mind up with ideas
Case it’s fumes
She fill my mind up with ideas (Straight up)
I’m the highest in the room (I’m the highest, it’s lit)
Hope I make it outta here

[Verse 3: Lil Baby]
Baby, I just left from Vegas
Did ’em dirty on the table
Went and bought a new Bentayga
I paid cash, don’t see no paper
Buy it, park it, tint it later
All my cars’ inside tomato
From Atlanta, not Decatur
I’m the one they say don’t play with
Make them boys get on your tater
High-five LeBron, floor seat the Lakers
Get more paper, get more haters
Standin’ still, my diamonds skatin’
Fucked her once, she think we datin’
I can spend it, I been savin’
I’ma spin ya, try to play me
I been trappin’ up the millions, used to trap it off a RAZR
Back when I was sellin’ two-for-five plays, called in my RAZR
Niggas never had to give it to me, I want it, I’ma take it
Guaranteed to tell a ho goodbye if she don’t try to get naked
I’m like mmh
Mmh, gotta get up out my room
Got some more bad vibes comin’ through
Mmh, she gon’ bust a move
Like you do

[Outro]
