LISTEN: Kat Graham’s “1991” Audio

By  | 

Out of the main three actresses on The Vampire DiariesNina Dobrev, Kat Graham and Candice Accola — only one of them was in school by the time 1991 came around: Candice. And that was only pre-school. Yet, that’s exactly where one of the beauties is taking us back to in her new song.

In an interview with MTV News, Kat explains of the retro theme, “My biggest peeve and worry — I didn’t want people to think, ‘Oh, it’s so kitschy, contrived.’ No, I produced a record. I wrote the f***ing record. I’m putting it out on my label. I’m doing it my way. The whole album is ’90s-inspired.”



Though she was only 1-turned-2 in 1991, the now-25-year-old sings about splitting up with a guy, then getting back together with him. Mixing a bit of her own experiences with heartbreak with some throwback sounds then, are we? Sounds like it.

Kat’s ’90s-inspired album is set to drop this coming April, but you can listen to “1991” above, get the lyrics below and tell us your thoughts in the comments below rightthissecond!

You love me when I’m wild
And even when I’m crazy
But isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be



And even when you’re mad
Or just a little cranky, yeah
Boy, you still get the best of me

If you want me to give it on up
And if you need me to give it on up
You got to have it to give it on up
Just say give it to me, baby

I can’t give up
We’ll never be over
Every breakup only brings us closer, boy



Old school pounding like we’re from 1991
Take it back so much, we’re back in 1991

I’ll give you all my time
And even all my money
(All my money)
As long as you stay good to me
(To me, to me, to me)

’cause even when your boys
Are acting kinda funny, yeah
You know you still can come home to me

If you want me to give it on up
And if you need me to give it on up
You got to have it to give it on up
Just say give it to me, baby

I can’t give up
We’ll never be over
Every breakup only brings us closer, boy

Old school pounding like we’re from 1991
Take it back so much, we’re back in 1991

I give you all my lovin’
Yes, I give it all the time
Everyone I know knows
That the boy is mine, yeah
Ain’t no question
His heart’s in my hands
If you can’t tell
Take a look at his pants

Been around the block
Ain’t no other life
His make-up sex so good
I go yeah
Can’t let go, girls
He’s the one

I can’t give up
We’ll never be over
Every breakup only brings us closer, boy

Old school pounding like we’re from 1991
Take it back so much, we’re back in 1991

I can’t give up
We’ll never be over
Every breakup only brings us closer, boy

Old school pounding like we’re from 1991
Take it back so much, we’re back in 1991

1991
1991
