about

Acclaimed alt-R&B singer Corina Corina’s “middle finger to the ex” anthem.

No apologies, no shame, and not an ounce of victimhood.

Fierce and vicious, but at its very core, healing.

An industry vet with multiple tours and self-released albums under her belt, alt-r&b singer Corina Corina has never seen an audience response like the one she gets when she performs “Toothbrush.” Her poised execution of this fresh take on the archetypical ballad of a woman scorned is reminiscent of some of her predecessors, such as Mary J. Blige, Stevie Nicks, and Alanis Morissette, and it reinforces the frequent comparisons she gets to the legendary Janis Joplin.

The second single on her upcoming third album, Hangover Music, "Toothbrush" follows the classic 12-bar blues structure with a fresh modern twist. Produced by her longtime creative partner, Willie Green (Backwoodz Studioz), the song features live horns, a filthy bass line and a timeless organ soul backbone.

For the past few years Corina Corina has been closing every live show with “Toothbrush” and, without ever releasing it online, the song has grown its own following. Her audience has been patiently waiting for their favorite cut: Fierce and vicious, but at its very core, healing.

lyrics

trust me now that I am through with us

there nothing left here to give up

something about you is poisonous

never deserving of my love


I should have just listened to my gut

when it said you're dangerous

now I'm getting rid of all of your stuff

scrubbing the floor with your toothbrush


trust me now that I'm through with this

feeling like wasted every minute

do what you want & I won't care one bit

oh baby you were never worth it


deep down I knew you were never enough

nothing amounted to very much

now I'm getting rid of all of your stuff

scrubbing the floor with your toothbrush


Hold on baby

I’m not through

I got nothin

left to lose


take everything I

gave to you

then set fire to that room

I'll take everything I

gave to you

then set fire to that room


trust me that you’ll never weaken me

not gonna cry or lose any sleep

i’m the one who’s gonna end up happy

sit back and watch baby you will see


i’ll never respect you matter what

fallen as far as I can out of love

now I'm getting rid of all of your stuff

scrubbing the floor with your toothbrush


take everything I

gave to you

then set fire to that room

I'll take everything I

gave to you

then set fire to that room


take everything I

gave to you

then set fire to that room

I'll take everything I

gave to you

then set fire to that room


take everything I

gave to you

then set fire to that room

I'll take everything I

gave to you

then set fire to that room
