If you are a fan of Mabel, then you would have noticed that in most of her videos, if not all, 6 other females always join her to choreograph to her song. She doesn’t use more or less than six; so far. If you watched “don’t call me up” (View the review here https://ogefash.reviews/2019/03/13/music-review-dont-call-me-up-by-mabel-mc-vey/ ) and “mad love,” (View the review here https://ogefash.reviews/2019/07/24/lyricstranslationmeaning-music-review-mad-love-by-mabel-what-does-mabel-mean-by-mad-love-could-it-be/ ) then, you would certainly agree with me.

Moving on, after watching this video, the latter part in particular, I am of the opinion that Mabel may actually not be looking for any boyfriend in her life in this song. I mean, out of all the boys she was pictured with; “The hot boy” “Bad boy” “Pretty boy” “Party Boy” “Nice boy”; none seem satisfactory for her. So, she ended up not picking any guy despite the fact that she said she needed a boyfriend.

WHAT IS THE SONG BOYFRIEND BY MABEL ABOUT

A boyfriend is a male figure in a romantic relationship with a female figure.

In the song, Mabel expounds how she easily gets aroused whenever she is lonely. Hence, she desires to have a boyfriend that is tough, that can excite her sexually and that would let her take control while they are sexing.

In essence, she wants a boyfriend just for sexual gratification rather than having him for keeps to help douse her loneliness; a relationship with no strings attached.

Mabel is however skeptical about the kind of temporary boyfriend to be with because of what she went through in her last relationship.

 

 

The song “Boyfriend” is a sexual song, especially the chorus. View some lines below…

I want a boyfriend, so put it on me

I’m looking for a man who can take that heat

Want a boyfriend, but not too sweet

My baby gotta be tough while he running that street

Is he ride or die? I’ve been looking so long for a guy to turn me on

I want a boyfriend, yeah, yeah I want a boyfriend, yeah I been looking like

 

“Put it on me means sexual penetration or to have sex with someone.

Turn me on means to excite one sexually.”

The lyrics to this song are well organized, well written and repetitive. The lyrics are meaningful as well. The song comes in two verses. The chorus, pre-chorus and post chorus were taken thrice each. They pre-dominated the song. The major instruments used to compose this song include drums, shakers and piano. It has an upbeat tune. The rhythm is engaging. There was also consistency in the style of rhythm. She sang in English.

Wondering though, was Mabel stylishly advertizing Nokia? What y’all think?

Take a gander at the lyrics below
