Well the guys talk about, putting it politely, interacting with many promiscuous girls (Translation: they dig big booty girls who swallow).
Then Nicki Minaj comes in and her lyrics contradict the overall meaning: The lines "Bad gyal no swalla notin'", "how ya'll wifing these thots, you don't get wins for that" criticize those promiscuous people's belief on soley valuing a girl's physical aspect.
She calls the girls and guys out for their shallowness and lack of respect for themselves and others, wasting time with people they're not committed to.
Then she explains how being sexy and powerfully fabulous means valuing yourself and others, even if you are expressing yourself sexually through fashion or attitude.
That, ironically is the moral of the song. A lot of reverse psychology and a completely different meaning not everyone picked up on.
Here's some more single line interpretations: 'Pussy game still cold we don't get minks for that' can mean she isn't offering herself for everyone and she's going to keep it that way (mink or fur coat is metaphorical for something that keeps you warm).
'I'm in that cherry red foreign with the brown guts'can refer to virginity.

How disgusting can the lyrics get? A person not knowing the meaning might find it good to listen to because the song has a really good tune and all and is fun to dance on but at the end, a song is all about its lyrics, right?

I sort of figured this is what this song is about. It's a disappointment! Like, me a young easily influences teen girl should not be able to listen to this on the frickin radio! It's so stupid! And it says a lot about our world. It's not that great that a freshman should easily understand what this song is about just by reading the name. It's a disgrace to all meaningful artists who actually put a message in their song other than sexualizing women. We should be moving forward ppl, not back!
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Sounds great but caught my 11 year old singing it and about threw up. I need to halfway explain but not over explain. It's hard sometimes.

Seriously? Just don’t listen to the song. The song is awesome not because of its lyrics, but because of it's beat. Don’t ruin the song for others if you don’t like it yourself.

This song is about swallowing methane gas in very large amounts - hence the term swalla la la la !!
This song is reerfence global warming and the G12 summit take place in 1991 when the Romanians built houses near green land fields and chopped all the trees to feed their methane gas addication that was expelled after eating a bowl of baked beans that were not Hienz !!!

I'm not a native eng speaker so tbh I didn't even try to listen to the words unless today I read lyrics and got confused with the meaning :))) So I'm glad I'm not a native speaker and can continue enjoying the beat.

This song is absolutely so revolting that I can't even call it a song. I think they should be in custody for putting porn on the radio.

The whole song is about SWALLAOING cum or semen . Its a shitty song with an addictive beat and that's what songs of this generation are so ....

This is bad. Very bad. What is this world coming to? People are becoming so narrow-minded...as in, all that they can come up with in the name of music are sexualised songs that the generations of today listen to, and the worst part about it is that they enjoy it? This is so wrong, these songs are so messed up and I would seriously hate to listen to them. It's so sad that this is what the world has become today. Women are objectified. I thank God for Islam because the women's true value can never be stepped on, unless ofcourse they would want it to be stepped on.

I find this song subliminal because if you go close you could probably hear stuff like subliminal sounds I did that and never felt really good and after looking at this I feel sick at listing to sex and porn

I just think if your children are going to listen to it, at least inform them about what the song it is. Yes it is not very appropriate, but a lot of songs are becoming like this. I think you just need to make sure kids understand what they are listening to.

I am 11, I like the beat, but tbh, its about drinking and having sex with hoes.

anonymous Aug 18th, 8:44am report
i think the song is cool with the beats and everything...we all are not supposed to judge jason,nicki or ty cos the song has got a different meaning to all of us...one man's food is another man's poison

Only if they had classics like songs with lyrics that mean something good with beats like these. Such shame
