(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: FREAKY FRIDAY BY LIL DICKY FT CHRIS BROWN “I REALLY NEED TO FIND A WAY OF KNOWING IF THESE INDIANS HAVE REALLY GOT VOODOOS”

IG @ogefashblog

I really need to travel to India urgently, cause I need to find out if they have really got these voodoos. So if I wanna be somebody else for one day, amma be

Well, I am still thinking about that, you know.

Ehen,moving on, like seriously, the intro of this music video is quite captivating. The opening drama lasted for about 1 minute 45 seconds; very interesting visual. Lil Dicky said he wished to be somebody else, meanwhile, there was an Indian man lurking around the corner, in no time, he does the “hakuna matata” thing (Magic with no troubles) and Lil Dicky’s wish is granted; he and Chris Brown immediately switched bodies. Hmmmm!

I love this song, no Friday ever goes by without this song being played on all stations in my country.

The song “Freaky Friday” means “Don’t believe you are not good enough. Don’t let them dictate who you should be or how you should live your life. Do not let them pressure you into doing things just to please the world rather than you.”

The song basically talks about the need for people to love themselves irrespective of their imperfections rather than wishing to be someone else. Really, in the true sense, that person they may want to be like has his or her own imperfection. From the video, you can tell that the artistes- “Lil Dicky and Chris Brown” have different ways of having freaky fun on a “Friday” but since they already switched bodies it was difficult to achieve. One person enjoyed it more than the other. Lil Dicky later realized that being himself irrespective of the imperfection pays more than being another person.

Take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO FREAKY FRIDAY BY LIL DICKY FT CHRIS BROWN

INTRO

Lil Dicky, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Mustard on the beat, oh

VERSE 1 (CHRIS BROWN)

I woke up Chris Breezy, oh my God I’m the man (Oh shit)
I’m so fly and I can dance (whoh, whoh shit)
There’s tattoos on my neck (oh, oh)
I just Face-Timed Kanye (bling, bling)
I told him I’m his biggest fan, yeah (yeah)
Got all these hoes in my DM (Yeah, I do)
Holy shit, I got a kid (Oh, oh oh oh)
I can sing so well
Wonder if I can say the n-word (For real?)
Wait, can I really say the n-word?
What up, my nigga? (woo) What up, my nigga?
Big ups, my nigga, we up, my nigga
You pussy ass nigga, man, fuck y’all niggas
‘Cause I’m that nigga, nigga, nigga, nigga
I’m that nigga

CHORUS (CHRIS BROWN)

I woke up in Chris Brown’s body (Oh yeah)
Somehow this shit turned into freaky friday
But we got no choice but to turn this beat sideways (Oh yeah, oh yeah)
I can’t believe that it’s freaky friday
Yeah, it’s freaky friday
I’m in Chris Brown’s body
I drive his Ferrari and I’m light-skinned black

VERSE 2 (LIL DICKY)

Ring ring!

What the fuck?
I woke up and I’m Lil Dicky (Lil Dicky?)
Uh, what the fuck?
This shit is real weak
How his dick staying perched up on his balls like that?
Walking down the street and ain’t nobody know my name (Whoh)
Ain’t no paparazzi, flashing pictures, this is great (Whoh)
Ain’t nobody judging ’cause I’m black or my controversial past
Amma go and see a movie and relax (Whoh)
Ay, I’m a Blond but I can finally wear blue (cool)
Why his momma calling all the time?
Leave me the fuck alone, bitch
Wait, if I’m in Dicky’s body, Breezy is who?
Hope my daughter’s in school
Fuck, if I was Chris Brown, where would I be?
What would I do?

CHORUS (CHRIS BROWN)

I woke up in Chris Brown’s body (Oh yeah)
Somehow this shit turned into freaky friday
But we got no choice but to turn this beat sideways (Oh yeah, oh yeah)
I can’t believe that it’s freaky friday
Yeah, it’s freaky friday
I’m in Chris Brown’s body
I look at my soft dick with delight, it’s my dream dick

VERSE 3 (LIL DICKY AND CHRIS BROWN)

If I was Lil Dicky in my body, where would I be?
I’m tryna to find myself like an introspective monk
I’m balling on the court, oh my God I can dunk
Snap a flick of my junk
My dick is trending on Twitter? Fuck
Now I’m at the club, I talked my way into getting in
I look up in the VIP, my goodness there I am
I signal to him to let me in but he won’t let me in
I don’t know who that is
Wait, who the fuck he think he is?
Took a glass bottle, shatter it on the bouncer’s head (woo)
Walked up to that motherfucker
Wait, think it through for a sec
If you hurting me then you only hurting yourself
But wait, I love myself
That was the key, now we’re switching back

CHORUS

I woke up in Chris Brown’s body (Oh yeah)
Somehow this shit turned into freaky friday
But we got no choice but to turn this beat sideways
(I can’t believe) I can’t believe that it’s freaky Friday

OUTRO

Wait, what the fuck?
And now I’m in Ed Sheeran’s body
It’s way less cool than being Chris Brown was
What the fuck again?
I’m DJ Khaled
Why am I yelling?
Huh, I’m Kendall Jenner
I got a vagina, I’m gonna explore that right now (woo, woo)
Holy shit, I got a vagina (uh), I’m gonna learn
I’m gonna understand the inner workings of a woman

DURATION: 5 MINUTES 20 SECONDS

However, the real song lasted for about 3 minutes 34 seconds
