(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: SALLY WALKER BY IGGY IZILEA “DOES THIS REMIND YOU OF ANY NURSERY RHYME?”

 IG @ ogefashblog

So I am wondering if iggy Izilea’s song reminds you of any nursery rhyme? Well for me, the song reminds me of the famous nursery rhyme:

“Little Sally Walker
Walking down the street.
She didn’t know what to do
So she stopped in front of me.
She said, “Hey girl, do your thing,
Do your thing and switch!
Hey girl do your thing
Do your thing and switch!”

Children while singing the rhyme “Little Sally Walker”

are gathered round in a circle while the “Little Sally Walker” walks around inside the circle. As they sing the rhyme to the part that says “She didn’t know what to do so she stopped in front of me. Hey girl, do that thing do your thing and switch!” the person playing Little Sally Walker would then stop in front of someone and dance. The person she stops in front of automatically becomes the  next “Little Sally Walker” and the game continues like that till mama calls…

Now,let’s talk about “Iggy izilea’s song “Little Sally Walker” If you are familiar with Iggy izilea’s songs, you will know that the rapper basically raps about being better than others.

In the song Little Sally Walker, Iggy Izilea talks about been wealthier than others while she accuses others to be pretending to have.

“Probably mad ’cause you ain’t in my tax bracket
You bitches is broker than glass cracking”

She also talks about dealing with those who want to mess around with her.

“Play with me, you gon’ get back handed”

Finally, she encourages ladies to shake their ass well or better still twerk well in other to get money. She says if they twerk without collecting money, then the ass they have is a waste.

“Lil’ Sally Walker, uh, shake it proper, uh. Bend it over, make it wobble, uh, got a lotta buns. Pick it up and drop it, uh, for the proper funds. Anything to make the profit come, get them dollars, huh… If you do it for free, then it’s ass backwards”

She also talks about people loving her flow of music because she is different.  The artist also says she has a great physique and can twerk well.

So, I am really wondering the correlation between Iggy izilea’s chorus “Little Sally Walker” and the “Little Sally Walker” nursery rhyme? Any idea? kindly fill me in…

Take a gander at the lyrics below
