"Don't Need Y'all" as written by George Astasio, Jason Andrew Pebworth, Amethyst Amelia Kelly, Jonathan Christopher Shave, Jonathan Adam Mills and Jon Turner....
I remember when it used to be simple
But all this cash, it just complicates things
And all this money that we into, it'll drive you crazy
But it only make me go harder, grow stronger
And get tougher when the road get longer
Sometimes you gonna think that it's too much on ya
But think what I'd be doing if this wasn't going on
So I just keep pushing when I'm being pulled in every direction
Now I'm popping so they watching every step of my progression
Sometimes fame like a curse latched to my blessing
On the road to riches turning earth into heaven
Dear Lord, if you hear me, I don't need not a new friend near me
'Cause I don't want none of that fake love, 'cause I'm looking and all of that be made up

I remember when I wasn't this big
And now y'all wanna act like y'all know me, yeah
Oh, now everybody wanna love me?
Try to knock me down but I'm strong
Did all this on my own
Ain't got no time for no new friends,
so for now just leave me alone
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all

Making each and every song like it might be my last one
But still making sure the cash come
Still ain't forget the times when I didn't have none
Back against the wall, feeling like I had to grab some
That's when, I took time and I figured it out
I'd rather deal with the stress more than living without
Take a one way trip to the top one time
Let you have it for a minute, now I want mine
Same girl on the cover of the magazine
Was the one hiding pain that you hadn't seen
Talking about no money, no family
Sixteen in the middle of Miami
Same critics love me nowadays couldn't stand me
Now we talking about VMA's and a Grammy
But in due time, turn nothing into something
And so now I need money, put it all in my discussions

I remember when I wasn't this big
And now y'all wanna act like y'all know me, yeah
Oh, now everybody wanna love me?
Try to knock me down but I'm strong
Did all this on my own
Ain't got no time for no new friends,
so for now just leave me alone
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all

And if you wasn't here when I was down
Then you won't be here when I'm up
Now the same one you looked over, be the same one that blew up
Ain't it funny how this life thing works?
When you think it's finished is when it all begins
Go from doubts to having the thought it might work
It goes up and down and then it starts again
When I reminisce sometimes I can't even keep a dry eye
But my heart's on fly when you on top of the world sky high

I remember when I wasn't this big
And now y'all wanna act like y'all know me, yeah
Oh, now everybody wanna love me?
Try to knock me down but I'm strong
Did all this on my own
Ain't got no time for no new friends,
so for now just leave me alone
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all anyway
I don't need y'all

    Song MeaningI love this song! It sounds so eerie. Iggy is singing from her own experience. "I remember when I wasn't this big, now ya'll wanna act like ya'll help me get here." No-one had any faith in Iggy when she was trying to make it big, and now she has, everyone wants to take the credit. But she, "don't need ya'll anyway"
