{Review}: Why Chloe’s “Treat Me” is way better than “Have Mercy”

Review: Chloe Bailey’s “Treat Me” is way better than Have Mercy

Here is why:

After releasing several teasers of Treat Me, and keeping the internet “suspended” for the release of her second single off her debut album, Chloe Bailey has released “Treat Me” and here is the review.

Lyricism

Chloe charges the lyrics of Treat me with some compelling assignments for whoever is interested in her.

The lyrics of Treat Me by Chloe indicates that it is not a to-do list. It is a must-do list.

The lyrics of Treat me by Chloe can make you feel powerful as a woman and help you lay down what you want from a man.

But Chloe Bailey’s Treat me Lyrics are not gender specific. Somehow, it charges men to treat their women far above the way they treat themselves.

They have to do the special thing; the extra thing, and they have to put in the effort. This is why Chloe says with the lyrics of Treat me at the beginning:

 

You know you go broke tryna handle me

Take it from someone who know how to handle me

I’ma need that real grown kinda energy, uh

Do you know? Do you know?

How Treat Me is better than Have Mercy

Treat Me sounds more intentional than Have Mercy and it serves more interesting lyrics than Have Mercy.

 

treat me chloe
Chloe

True, Have Mercy established Chloe Bailey as a sex symbol and showed that she was showing control of her body and didn’t care what people were saying, but Treat Me not only establishes her as an independent woman, it shows she appreciates herself and it doesn’t have to be in a sexual way.

It becomes trite when women have to show that the way they can be appreciated is only sexually.

Have Mercy did this, but Treat Me shows that she can be appreciated all round because she is a successful woman who needs a real man.

Also, Treat Me has better replay value than Have Mercy because of its catchy chorus of “Treat me like I treat me” which Chloe Bailey has cemented into the head of her listeners prior to the release of the song.

Popularity

Chloe Bailey seemed to do some intentional “Tik Tok” thing to Treat Me. The beginning is perfect for a Tik Tok challenge.

This will make Treat Me enjoy some amount, if not a lot of popularity.

It sounds like the perfect Tik Tok sound.

This is a smart move from Chloe Bailey because even though Treat Me sounds Tik Tokey, it doesn’t take away substance from the song.

Also, performing this song on stage would be crazy! Imagine Chloe performing the introduction of this song with a mad choreography! We can’t wait to see that.

Chloe really put all these in perspective and it shows she is truly coming up with something amazing with her debut album. So yes, Treat Me will be a successful release.

Song Theme

Chloe Bailey says the concept of Treat Me is to show that if you treat yourself amazingly as a lady, then why should any man treat you less.

Or in fact, if you treat yourself so well, why do you need any man.

The beginning of Treat Me alone sets the tone for the song, Chloe Bailey does some tuneless vocals in a sexy voice saying her man goes broke trying to handle her.

He says handling her is a lot of responsibility and he would have to step up his game because she is a lot handle.

Therefore, she asks that he handles her well and treat her right.

Chloe Bailey chose the right song theme because it is different; you don’t hear it every day and this retained some originality in the song and made us interested in it enough to want to listen to it.

Relatability

Chloe Treat Me is a way of telling ladies to not settle for less.

Since they treat themselves well, why should they accept any less from any other man? It’s a call to ladies to wake up and she says

“Any other less is unacceptable”

To some extent, Chloe Bailey’s Treat Me spurs men up to take some responsibility and treat their women well.

Chloe Bailey’s Treat me lyrically reveals that not only do women take care of themselves, they do it in a great way and any man that will do so should come correct and serve the care with exceptional skills and resources.

Chloe Treat me Lyrics

 

{Verse 1}

You know you go broke tryna handle me

Take it from someone who know how to handle me

I’ma need that real grown kinda energy, uh

Do you know? Do you know?

 

‘Cause you’re dealing with a lotta competition

You’re gonna have to do a lotta ass kissing

You know I got someone with the time to listen

Tell me boy, do you know? Do you know?

 

{Hook}

I, I, I, I, I

Do it every night, show me a good time

You can too, I let you

Try, try, try, try, try, oh

This right here your chance, learn it from the best

Here’s what you gotta do

 

{Chorus}

Treat me like I treat me

(Booty, booty, booty, booty, rockin’ еverywhere)

And you know I do it right

(Booty, booty, booty, booty, rockin’ еverywhere)

Treat me like I treat me

(Booty, booty, booty, booty, rockin’ everywhere)

Oh, I make me feel so nice

 

(Rockin’ everywhere, rockin’ everywhere)

(Booty, booty, booty, booty, rockin’ everywhere)

Oh, treat me like I treat me

(Rockin’ everywhere, rockin’ everywhere)

 

{Verse 2}

Exceptional, you know, anything less is unacceptable

Don’t get me wrong, I’m flexible

But only in all the ways my legs can go

Confessional, I’m skeptical

‘Cause being on my level is difficult

You better wake up and put me on a pedestal

I bet you know, I know, do you know?

 

{Hook}

I, I, I, I, I

Do it every night, show me a good time

You can too, I let you

Try, try, try, try, try, oh

This right here your chance (Chance), learn it from the best (The best)

Here’s what you gotta do

 

{Outro}

Treat me like I treat me (Treat me, baby)

And you know I do it right (And you know I do it right)

Treat me like I treat me (Oh, oh, oh)

Oh, I make me feel so nice (Oh, oh, oh, I)

Treat me like I treat me (Oh, oh, oh)

Love me like I love me completely and deeply (Oh)

Ah, now (Oh)

Treat me like I treat me
