Lied van de week: week 27 - 2018

Apeshit - The Carters


The Carters, dat zijn Jay-Z en zijn vrouw en minstens even grote superster Beyoncé. Als zij samen muziek uitbrengen, dan kan je er van op aan dat de wereld daar aandacht aan zal schenken. En als ze dan ook nog eens de clip bij de eerste single uit die plaat opnemen in het Louvre, dan wordt dat meteen supertrending...
Mijn lief vroeg zich bij het zien van de clip meteen af hoeveel dat wel niet moet gekost hebben, onder andere aan verzekeringen, om zo dichtbij al die fantastische en onbetaalbare kunstwerken te dansen en zo... Mijn lief let op dat soort details. Mijn lief en ik zijn complementair...
En ik, ik hou wel van deze song. Natuurlijk weten ze allebei hoe ze een goede en vooral ook een succesvolle song moeten schrijven. De popgevoeligheid van beide artiesten is legendarisch, de symbiose van de no-nonsense-attitude van Beyoncé en de berouwvolle houding van Jay-Z (na zijn bedrog waarover hij het had op zijn meest recente plaat, 4:44) werkt uitstekend en visueel is de clip niet alleen verbluffend maar hij onderstreept onder meer door de choreografie ook net de kracht van het nummer.

Je vindt deze song op het album Everything is love, dat je hier kan kopen.

Lyrics:

[Beyonce (Quavo):]
Step my money fast and go (Fast, fast, go)
Fast like a Lambo (Skrrt, skrrt, skrrt)
I be jumpin' off the stage, hoe (Jumpin', jumpin', hey, hey)
Crowd better savor (Crowd goin' heavy)
I can't believe we made it (This is what we made, made)
This is what we're thankful for (This is what we thank, thank)
I can't believe we made it (This a different angle)
Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?


[Beyonce:]
Rah, gimme my check
Put some respeck on my check
Or pay me in equity, pay me in equity
Or watch me reverse out the dick (Skrrt)
He got a bad bitch, bad bitch
We live it lavish, lavish
I got expensive fabrics
I got expensive habits
He wanna go with me
He like to roll the weed
He wanna be with me
He wanna give me that vitamin D
Ice ornaments, icy style tournaments
You ain't ownin' this
Don't think they ownin' this
Bought him a jet
Shut down Colette
Phillippe Patek
Get off my dick


Gimme the paw, gimme the ball, take a top shift
Call my girls and put 'em all on a spaceship
Hang one night with Yoncé, I'll make you famous
Have you ever seen the stage goin' apeshit?


[Beyonce (Quavo):]
Rah, step my money fast and go (Fast, fast, go)
Fast like my Lambo (Skeet, skeet, skeet)
Jumpin' off the stage, hoe (Jumpin', jumpin', hey)
Crowd better savor (Crowd goin' heavy)
I can't believe we made it (This is what we made, made)
This is what we're thankful for (This is what we thank, thank)
I can't believe we made it (This a different angle)
Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?


[Jay-Z:]
I'm a gorilla in the fuckin' coop
Finna pull up in the zoo
I'm like Chief Keef meet Rafiki
Who been Lion King to you
Pocket watch it like kangaroos
Tell these clowns we ain't amused
Man eclipsed with that monkey business
4 5 got change for you
Motor cade when we came through
Presidential with the planes too
One better get you with the residential
Undefeated with the king too
I said no to the Superbowl
You need me, I don't need you
Every night we in the endzone
Tell the NFL we in stadiums too
Last night was a fucking zoo
Stagediving in a pool of people
Ran through Liverpool like a fucking Beatle
Smoke gorilla glue like it's fucking legal
Tell the Grammy's fuck that 0 for 8 shit
Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?


[Beyonce (Quavo):]
Rah, step my money fast and go (Fast, fast, go)
Fast like my Lambo (Skeet, skeet, skeet)
Jumpin' off the stage, hoe (Jumpin', jumpin', hey)
Crowd better savor (Crowd goin')
I can't believe we made it (This is what we made, made)
This is what we're thankful for (This is what we thank, thank)
I can't believe we made it (This a different angle)
Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?


[Beyonce (Jay-Z):]
Rah, haters in danger (Dangerous)
Whole lot of gangin' (Gang)
35 chains (Chains)
I don't give a damn 'bout the fame (Nope)
G8 planes
Alexander Wang
She a thot that you claim
Can't be toppin' my reign
I'm not poppin' my bitch, I'm poppin'
We go to the dealer and cop it off
Sippin' my favorite alcohol
Got me so lit I need Tylenol
All of my people are free no more
Hop in the whip, wanna see the stars
Sendin' the missiles off
Trickin' my inhibitions off
250 for the Richard Mille
Live in a field
My body may jiggle, go kneel
Man, my momma, my loyal, my shield
Look at my jury, I'm lethal
Designers on me, they seethrough
I'm a martian, they wishing they equal
I got Ms on the back like Evisu


Gimme the paw, gimme the ball, take a top shift (She went crazy)
Call my girls and put 'em all on a spaceship
Hang one night with Yoncé, I'll make you famous
Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?


[Beyonce (Quavo):]
Rah, step my money fast and go (Fast, fast, go)
Fast like a Lambo (Skeet, skeet, skeet)
I be jumpin' off the stage, hoe (Jumpin', jumpin', hey)
Crowd better savor (Crowd goin' heavy)
I can't believe we made it (This is what we made, made)
This is what we're thankful for (This is what we thank, thank)
I can't believe we made it (This a different angle)
Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?
Rah, fast and go
