about

LOURDES, formerly known as Lourdes Maglinte, started writing songs when she was only 14 years old. At 23, she is now releasing her debut album - Ruin The Party, LOURDES’ unapologetic celebration of life, love, and loss, with 11 tracks (including an acoustic bonus track) all written and composed by the artist herself. Each song, carefully crafted one after the other within the album's 11-month production stage, is a testament to LOURDES' formidable songwriting, and a telling of her personal journey as she has gone and grown through life.

22 Tango Records CEO Cattski Espina is the Music Producer of this album. “The previous albums I’ve produced had a folk quality into them. In fact, LOURDES’ debut single released in 2016 had a pop-folk singer-songwriter sound. But LOURDES has grown and evolved as an artist, and I discovered that she really has a natural soul, neo-soul, r&b, hip-hop swag. I’ve always wanted to explore crafting that sound — being a child of the 90s — and I loved TLC, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Sade, Macy Gray, etc. I thought of using these influences to create something from.”

Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Room Eleven Recording Studio, the album boasts of RnB, hip hop, and neo-soul vibes. Released under 22 Tango Records and available on all digital streaming platforms.

Track Name: Ruin The Party
RUIN THE PARTY

The night is young and I am lonely
Coz everybody’s with somebody
I came here to ruin the party
But I could really use somebody

Believe me when I say I’ve learned my lesson
But I still backread old conversations
Stupid as it is, I’ve got my reasons
I miss the feeling but not the person

But I’ll make it clear
I’m over you
Just need a lil distraction
From the shit you put through

Oh, didn’t you hear?
I’m over you
I’m gonna dance with every stranger in this room

The night is young and I am lonely
Coz everybody’s with somebody
I came here to ruin the party
But I could really use somebody

Everything right here’s too damn familiar
One random party, two perfect strangers
At the moment, I just wanna kiss her
The way I kissed you, I still remember

But i’ll make it clear
I’m over you
Just need a lil distraction
From the shit you put through


Oh, didn’t you hear?
I’m over you
I’ll take my chance with every stranger in this room

The night is young and I am lonely
Coz everybody’s with somebody
I came here to ruin the party
But I could really use somebody

I feel the tension in the air
I see her walking over here
Everything’s moving way too fast
Telling myself no strings attached

Got liquid courage in my hand
Dancing away without a plan
Everything’s moving way too fast
Telling myself no strings attached

BRIDGE:
I know how this will go
Oh, I just need a win that I could use for show
I know I’ve gone too low
It’s just that I don’t wanna wake up all aione

The night is young and I am lonely
Coz everybody’s with somebody
I came here to ruin the party
But I could really use somebody

The night is young and I am lonely
Coz everybody’s with somebody
I came here to ruin the party
But I could really use somebody
Yeah I could really use somebody
Track Name: 2 Cents
2 CENTS

Well I could waste a weekend doing nothing
But save up all my Mondays just for you
Take you out to dinner on a Tuesday
It's a wine and dine for two
Well I could bring you roses on Wednesday mornings
Sleep under the stars on Thursday nights
Tell you how I love you on a Friday
And for the rest of my life

I'm not letting go
It took forever waiting for you in the cold
Let's just take it slow
Forget the world
I'm holding you close

I don't give two cents about what the neighbors say
Darling we're A-okay
They'll get around in time
And don't ever say
We're making a big mistake
We love too much to hate
I'll be yours you'll be mine

You could make me breakfast on a Monday
Kiss me off to work before I leave
Drop by my office on a Tuesday
Bring me something sweet to eat
And you can take me Wednesdays watching movies
Meet me every Thursday at the brew
Wake up to your face on lazy Fridays
Could you stay the weekend too?

You and I both know
That we've been fighting for too long to let this go
Let's just take it slow
Forget the world
I'm holding you close

I don't give two cents about what the neighbors say
Darling we're A-okay
They'll get around in time
And don't ever say
We're making a big mistake
We love too much to hate
I'll be yours you'll be mine
Let all the walls tumble down to pieces
No matter the wreckage
No matter the wreckage
Oh
Let all the walls tumble down to pieces
No matter the wreckage
No matter the wreckage

I see it in your eyes
That all these pages unraveling took you by surprise
You need to realize
That you are worth it
And you should know that

I don't give two cents about what the neighbors say
Darling we're A-okay
They'll get around in time
And don't ever say
We're making a big mistake
We love too much to hate
I'll be yours you'll be mine

I don't give two cents about
what the neighbors say
Darling we're A-okay
They'll get around in time
And don't ever say
We're making a big mistake
We love too much to hate
I'll be yours you'll be mine

Let all the walls tumble down to pieces
No matter the wreckage
No matter the wreckage
Let all the walls tumble down to pieces
No matter the wreckage
No matter the wreckage
Track Name: Man Who Couldn't Stay
MAN WHO COULDN’T STAY

No, the apple don’t fall
It don’t fall far from the tree
I’ve become the disappointment you expected
Don’t look back, just go go go

I don’t need nobody, not anybody saving me
Do appreciate the gesture
but I’m absolutely better on my own

I was somebody long ago
One I used to know
You could see hope in her eyes
Went off the edge to risk it all
You were right, it was too late for me to realize I...

Fell in love and gave it all away
to a man who couldn’t stay
I gave my heart and soul away
to a man who couldn’t stay

Yes, you heard me
I’m taking responsibility
Picking up whatever’s left of me
The little pieces lying on the floor
You can’t shame me for admitting I am broken
You should know this is not a fight
I don’t wanna end up hurting anymore

I need some clarity
So just let me be
Let me figure out my life
It takes some sanity
To admit to myself I’ve been stuck for the longest time
I...

Fell in love and gave it all away
to a man who couldn’t stay
I gave my heart and soul away
to a man who couldn’t stay

I don’t recognize myself anymore
Do remind me of the woman I once was
Before I gave in, before he walked through that door
I have nothing left of me all because I…

I fell in love and gave it all away
to a man who couldn’t stay
I gave my heart and soul away
to a man who couldn’t stay
Fell in love and gave it all away
to a man who couldn’t stay
I gave my heart and soul away
to a man who couldn’t stay
Track Name: Save Someday
SAVE SOMEDAY

When you leave me, leave some daisies by the door
with a note that says "I don't love you anymore."
Or something nicer like " I need some time and space."
but we both know where this is going anyway

Love, when you leave me, leave your sweater on the couch
I'm gonna need something to keep me warm when it's cold and raining outside
Better yet, just make me dinner, leave the candles lit
I'm not feeling any better but the wine should do the trick, my darling

If you really have to go away, then that's just sad
But I'll be counting all the days, I'll wait til you get back
Just for now, I’ll set you free and let you be
As long as you save someday for me

Love, when you leave me, do it quick but make it sweet
I know it's crazy but believe me it's the kind of hurt I need
But if you change your mind, the doorkey's on the wall
I'll even leave my windows open but I do prefer you call, my darling

If you really have to go away, then that's just sad
But I'll be counting all the days, I'll wait til you get back
Just for now, I’ll set you free and let you be
As long as you save someday…

Yes, someday, I pray that you would find the way
That leads you back to my embrace
And you'd finally have the heart to stay... for good
And someday, we'll make a home and start anew
Someday, I’m growing old with you
I'm holding on to "someday soon"

If you really have to go away, then that's just sad
But I'll be counting all the days, I’ll wait til you get back
Just for now, I’ll set you free and let you be
As long as you save someday
Yes, I'm hoping and I pray
That, my dear, you'd save someday for me
Track Name: Start A Fire
START A FIRE

You took a chance
Grabbed my hand in the crowd
So we could dance
You with those eyes
Guiding me through
the darkness of the night

We can start a fire
With our hearts
We can start a fire
With a spark
We don’t know where this is going
We don’t know if this would even last
But we can start a fire…
Now! ohhhh

You have your doubts
Of getting lost and never being found
But you have me now
If you let me in
I’ll show you how

We can start a fire
With our hearts
We can start a fire
With a spark
We don’t know where this is going
We don’t know if this would even last
But we can start a fire…
Now! ohhhh

We can start a fire
With our hearts
We can start a fire
With a spark
We can start a fire
With our hearts
We can start a fire
With a spark
We don’t know where this is going
We don’t know if this will even last
We can start a fire....
Now!
Track Name: Sad Parts
SAD PARTS

All of my bills unpaid
Everyday working late
Smoking on deadlines
Coffee to get by
This is the bed I made

Waking up, big mistake
But I overcompensate
Get in the headlines
Flash em a fake smile
tell em your a-okay, but..

Wouldn’t it be sick if we
Found a way to skip
All these sad parts
Have the heart to quit and to
Finally commit to a fresh start
I long to be proud and free
Just be me unapologetically
But you see, joke’s on me
Joke’s on me

Laugh when the lights are on
Cry when the crowd is gone
I learned it the hard way to
Put on a brave face
Easier said than done

My walk of shame by noon
In between hotel rooms
I leave through the backdoor
I know I want more
I know I want more

Wouldn’t it be sick if we
Found a way to skip
All these sad parts
Have the heart to quit and to
Finally commit to a fresh start
I long to be proud and free
Just be me unapologetically
But you see, joke’s on me
Joke’s on me

Ha ha ha
Ha ha Ha
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha

Say you’re doing well
But it hurts like hell
No one else can tell
You are not yourself

Wouldn’t it be sick if we
Found a way to skip
All these sad parts
Have the heart to quit and to
Finally commit to a fresh start
I long to be proud and free
Just be me unapologetically
But you see, joke’s on me
Joke’s on me

Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha
Track Name: Fuck Feelings
FUCK FEELINGS

I must admit, you got under my skin
So I gave it a go
I took your lips to where they’ve never been
Now you’re calling me “home”

But you don’t know me
I’m not the type to marry
You can go on and leave me
I like to sleep alone
Yes, you can hold me
But not too tight
I’m only good for the night
No, really
It’s nothing personal

Need I remind you, it’s all a game
We were just having fun
Got a familiar look on your face
Now that’s my cue to run
Go ahead and call me names
I would rather take the blame
When you wake up, I’m gone
I can’t let you get in the way
I won’t make the same mistake
mmmhmmm
Fuck feelings, I’m done

I left a me-shaped outline on your bed
with the sheets all undone
You say I’m the best thing that you never had
Claiming the i was “the one”

But you don’t know me
I’m not the type to marry
I don’t want you to need me
I’d rather sleep alone
Yes, you can hold me
But not too tight
I’m only good for the night
No, really
It’s nothing personal

Need I remind you, it’s all a game
We were just having fun
Got a familiar look on your face
Now that’s my cue to run
Go ahead and call me names
I would rather take the blame
When you wake up, I’m gone
I can’t let you get in the way
I won’t make the same mistake
mmmhmmm
Fuck feelings, I’m done
Fuck feelings, I’m done

No, you don’t know me
I’m not the girl you marry
I’ll hurt you if you let me
You don’t get to call me “home”

Need I remind you, it’s all a game
We were just having fun
Got a familiar look on your face
Now that’s my cue to run
Go ahead and call me names
I would rather take the blame
When you wake up, I’m gone
I can’t let you get in the way
I won’t make the same mistake
mmmhmmm
Fuck feelings, I’m done
Fuck feelings, I’m done
Fuck feelings, I’m done
Track Name: Cheers
CHEERS

You made it clear when you slammed your door
No, you don’t want me anymore
Tell me, what am I even fighting for
I guess we’ve both been keeping score

Cause we just stopped
We got too tired to talk
We didn’t wanna listen
So I guess we’re giving up?
So much for love
I guess we’ve had enough
Since both of us are hurting here’s a drink to giving up

Cheers to giving up
Here’s to giving up
Since both of us are hurting
Your lost and I am broken
Cheers to giving up
Here’s to giving up
We know where this is going
But let’s wait it out til morning

Don’t wanna hear you ask for “space" to "think"
Just sit with me and have a drink
Look, if you want, I’ll show myself out by tomorrow
but for now my dear, just let the whiskey sink


Cause we just stopped
We got too tired to talk
We didn’t wanna listen
So I guess we’re giving up?
So much for love
I guess we’ve had enough
Since both of us are hurting here’s a drink to giving up

Cheers to giving up
Here’s to giving up
Since both of us are hurting
Your lost and I am broken
Cheers to giving up
Here’s to giving up
We know where this is going
But let’s wait it out til morning

Cause the truth is we can’t afford a confrontation
At least we’ll both be a bit too drunk to make decisions

Cheers to giving up
Here’s to giving up
Since both of us are hurting
Your lost and I am broken
Cheers to giving up
Here’s to giving up
But secretly I’m hoping
We can work it out by morning
Let’s work it out by morning
Track Name: Vagina Song
VAGINA SONG

Just let the break up sink in
Does my absence make you think of what you did?
I’m not staying around for drama
I’m gonna leave it all to karma
Tonight I’m going out to have a drink
What you think?

I’ll have you know, I’m a pro at going solo
Watch me do more than you can
You’ll see why I let you go
I’m not staying in your kitchen
I’m not here to cook your chicken
Let’s see if you can make this house a home on your own

I don’t wanna be a double Debbie Downer
A taste of reality made me want to get my shit together
I can’t get back the many years that’s come and gone
The best is yet to come
My story’s just begun

This time, I’ll let you do the talking
Let me hear the lame excuses that you’ve practiced
Are you done?
Don’t go wasting your saliva
You ain’t fooling my vagina
Tonight I’m leaving you to have some fun
Later hun!

I don’t wanna be a double Debbie Downer
A taste of reality made me want to get my shit together
I can’t get back the many years that’s come and gone
But the best is yet to come
This girl has just begun
Oh, I’ve just begun
Track Name: Linger
LINGER

Why do I linger
When all that you cause me is pain
We’re not getting better
You made me play a losing game

Told me your heart was set to start
Told me you’re ready to stay
But why do you keep me in the dark
Why do you push me away

Why do I linger
When you no longer look at me the same
We’re not getting better
I woke up and you called out her name

Maybe we take some time apart
Maybe it’s better that way
But why do i keep you in my arms
Why am I choosing to stay

I don’t know what it is exactly that you do
That keeps me holding on to you
I don’t know what it is exactly that you do
That i can’t walk away from you

Maybe I need someone to need me like you do?
Maybe I need someone to break me like you do?

Why do I linger
Why do I linger
Why do I linger
