KUIPER ON HIS NEW SINGLE “BLOOD ON THE FLOOR” [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]
BY BRENESSA ROACH | MAY 26 2023
At midnight, kuiper’s new single “blood on the floor” released worldwide. We absolutely love this song and had the opportunity to talk to kuiper about the hidden meaning behind this song.
VERSE 1 BREAKDOWN
“Blood on the floor is a narrative piece. It’s a story that is very much ever flowing, if that makes any sense. Basically, the story is talking about two people who’ve recently broken up with one another and one person, in this case, the speaker kuiper, is talking about the will to move on.”
“I want to move on from this relationship. But this person, the significant other, this other presence keeps on toying with people. It’s like you keep playing with my ’do you want me back? heartstrings.’ In the end, what it comes down to is I know in my heart, my heart is on do not disturb and it’s gonna be okay because there’s gonna be blood on the floor. You’re going to be blood on the floor, and the memories are going to be wanted on a wanted poster. The memories are gonna be the things that kill you in my heart.”
VERSE 2 BREAKDOWN
“The second verse changes a little bit. The second verse is it changes the narrative in a way where now, I kind of want them back in my life and I’m stressing to make things, right. If I could, I would turn back time to the time when you were interested. And yet, I know that is unachievable because your words, your persistence of saying, ‘no, you had your time’ they’re like, daggers, they’re like knives. So, the second verse is that there’s going to be blood on the floor, but it’s my blood because of your words that graze on my skin. The memories aren’t wanted on a wanted poster anymore, but the memories are wanted. I want the memories and hopefully they’re knocking on my door.”
“So this beat is actually made by my manager, Reny. Reny and I are very much the closest and we’ve worked on so many demos together in the past, but have technically never released anything together because the first track that we technically released was a rap track and it was on my old artist account, Zion Kim, but it got taken down by my old label.”
“Production wise, the beat is very straightforward, it’s just a loop that’s being played over again with just a few variations and a few melodic counter melodies and stuff like that.”
Hearing the meaning behind “blood on the floor” left us speechless. The fact that kuiper was able to tell a story with two different scenarios, but still have it mean the same thing is really impressive. We absolutely loved the lyricism in this song and the overall production.
Also, kuiper did say to be on the look out for something that is going to be coming out regarding “blood on the floor” next month.
