Lindsay Lohan reveals what her favorite song of hers is, and it’s not what you’d expect.

Lindsay’s first two albums, Speak and A Little More Personal (RAW), soundtracked my adolescence. I can’t tell you how many times my parents looked in the rearview mirror on the way to school and saw me BOPPING to “Magnet” and “If It’s Alright.” Her raspy vocals accompanied by sugary sweet guitar melodies and rebellious angst was the perfect blend of bubblegum pop rock that my little gay self so desperately needed. “Rumors” was my gateway drug to becoming a pop music journalist (fun fact: I briefly created and ran a Lindsay Lohan fan-site in middle school named I–– My life could have turned out so different). Both albums are precious, but lonely – Lindsay hasn’t released another LP since. She felt the pressure to release something in 2008 as her life spiraled out of control, and we got the Ne-yo-produced bop, “Bossy” (listen to the demo here). Such a gem, but the lack of new Lindsay music since has made the world a worse place. Fortunately, Linds recently confirmed there’s new tunes on the way. To get you in the mood, BreatheHeavy’s shining a light on a track you might not be privy to (bad fan).

Lohan made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to promote her now off-air show on MTV, Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, a 12-part reality series documenting her life as a boss ***** as she navigates the launch of her new day club, Lohan Beach House, in Mykonos, Greece. This is how you throw a party in Mykonos, *****. In the interview, Cohen asks Lindsay what her favorite song of hers is, and curiously she says it’s “Walka Not A Talka,” a track that was never officially released.

“Walka Not A Talka”

The song, rumored to appear on a scrapped Lindsay album reportedly titled Spirit in the Dark, was produced by JR Rotem and co-written / owned by singer Mya. Mya and Lindsay were both signed to Universal Motown when the song was first given to Lindsay, PopCrush reports, but ultimately Mya left and kept the track for 2007’s Liberation. Several incarnations of Lindsay’s demo have existed on the Internet for many years. One with Mya, the other without her. Both versions feature Snoop Dogg (who actually name-checks Mya in his verse).

I’m intrigued Lindsay decided to mention a seemingly obscure song considering it was never officially released, and also considering that “FIRST” AND “SPEAK” “TO KNOW YOUR NAME” EXIST. There’s no telling if Lindsay has plans to officially release it in 2019, but if she did I’d be curious to see how it’d fit in today’s musical climate. “Walka” features an Egyptian intro, voluptuous drums and lots of heavy breathing (slay), but it doesn’t sound current.

Now that I’ve talked this out, this could actually work. If I hear another icy pop song that plunges into EDM I’ll make my Spotify retreat into the early 2000s and stay there. I’ll probably do that anyway.

Look, I’m not sure how to process the news that Lindsay Lohan’s favorite Lindsay Lohan song is not a Lindsay Lohan song, but it goes to show she’s more in tune with her catalogue than we thought. Or it’s completely the opposite of that and she has no idea how flawless her official stuff is, I’m undecided.

If you haven’t given “Walka not a Talka” a play in a while (or ever), please stream it below.

Also, justice for “Over.”
