They say that you never miss a good thing until it's gone, and that's quite true when it comes to relationships. There are some exes who are able to kiss and make up after a breakup, but everyone doesn't get a happily ever after -- nor do they want it. For the people in that latter group, Leela James has your new theme song with her latest, "Don't Want You Back."
The singer lets her soul glow on this slow tempo scorcher where she tells her old man in no uncertain terms that it's a wrap and gonna stay that way. Old boy calls her in the middle of the night, and she lays him out. "You had a good thing, and you let it go," Leela sings, making him sorry that he dialed her digits as she continues, "And now you wanna try and come back / No, no, no / I will never take you back." Welp! Much like Latifah, Leela has had it up to here and isn't here for any shenanigans, tomfoolery and kiddie games in "Don't Want You Back." She breaks it all the way down to let him know that not only does she not want him back, but she's moved on to a man who loves her righteously and she ain't thinking bout him. #SorryNotSorry
