(+LYRICS + TRANSLATION+ MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: CLOUT BY OFFSET FT CARDI B “WHAT DOES CLOUT REALLY MEAN?”

IG @ogefashblog

 

The word “Clout” has different meanings but in the context of this song, it means power. The song is self explanatory. The artistes basically use the song “clout” to emphasize how people are willing to do all sorts, take wrong actions and write fake news about them just to get power, fame and money

The artistes practically called bloggers who write all sorts of propaganda about them and taint their image just to get traffic to their site as well as make money. Cardi B uses the song “Say my name” by disbanded music group “Destiny Child” to emphasize how people are using her name to make money. But Cardi says she wouldn’t be subdued by them, but would rather unleash mayhem on them.

View some lines below

“I should run a whole blog at this rate (Phew)
They using my name for clickbait (Clickbait)
Bitches even wanna start fake beef (Fake beef)
To sell their little weave in the mixtape
They know I’m the bomb, they ticking me off
Saying anything to get a response
I know that mean they traffic is low
Somebody just gotta practice to launch
So fuck being tame, I’d rather be wild”

Both Offset and Cardi B also talk about people beefing them in the industry and outside the industry. These people say all sorts of things to bring them down because they know they are already defeating them. However, Offset says, no need for envy but people should keep practicing whatever they do till they are perfect in it. The artistes also talk about people making hurtful remarks about them all in the name of “self-expression” via social media

“Niggas talk crazy on tweets (Who)

The blog and the media fake (They fake)

Mouth still say what it wants to (Woo)”

“All of that talk and I’m calling it out
Public opinions from private accounts”

 Offset also talks about women being lovers of money

“If I go broke she gone leave, escape (She gone)”

Cardi B’s  flow of rhythm in the below lines is similar to the flow in the song “Making money”

“So fuck being tame, I’d rather be wild
Bitches is Brandy, they wanna be down”

 “Big fat checks, big large bills
Going uphill like ten cartwheels”
