Westside Swing

from 1990 by Amerigo Gazaway & Xiomara



An ode to 90’s R&B, Amerigo Gazaway and Xiomara’s “1990” album is a nostalgic love letter to an era that redefined the genre. Known for his work reinterpreting classics, Gazaway (most recently tapped by the Miles Davis estate for his work on the lost Rubberband sessions), steps out of his role as a remixer and gives Bay Area artist, Xiomara, the bedrock for her voice to flourish.

With her breakout 2016 release “Seven Nineteen,” Xiomara’s soulful debut took home top rankings in SF Weekly’s “5 Best Bay Area Albums of 2016” list and led to guest spots on releases from Son Little, Blu, and Oh No to name a few. Leaning heavy on Xiomara’s songwriting and arrangement chops, the newly formed duo spent the last year crafting a collaboration as original as it is reminiscent.



Oh you know me so much better
Than I could ever know myself
And if I take direction learn my lesson
Then you’ll still leave with someone else

[Verse 1]
Boy are you down to be the only one
with the key to my little heart
If you are, time to show and prove,
boy you know just what you got to do
To make me yours, you gotta get up
and into something
Oh no one’s made it telling fables watching tables turn
Be cool, but not so cool you can’t be schooled
Do you take me for some type of fool?


[Verse 2]
I’m not sure you’re the one true love
that this rolling stone will ever know
When I’m on tour, do you even call do you
ever think of me at all
Cause you got me so caught up
in a sticky situation, well I’m about to rock your world
You and your homies swear you know me but
you don’t know a thing
if you thought I was that type of girl
you know me


Want you to hold me down
not just when nobody but you and me around
and baby you know that it’s time to put
some respect on my name
now that you see I ain’t came here
to play your games
Oh you know me


{Vamp (Spoken)]
Oh you know me so much better baby
Than I could ever hope to know myself
And if I take direction learn my lesson
Then you will still leave for someone else – Alright

[Outro: Rickey Vincent]

Riding on a song
You don’t have to hurry
This vibe will be here after we are gone...
