You know how back in our teenage years, we would always sing along to those songs in top 40 charts. We would always learn the lyrics. We would always sing together with our friends. We would put these songs on repeat when going on road trips. Word by word, we would just keep repeating it to ourselves and as we grow up, it would stick in our heads.
As we grow older, we stopped learning new songs. We stopped caring about new songs. We stopped listening properly and carefully to lyrics of songs from Top 40 charts. We would even rebel against majority pop hits and tend to start looking for other songs that we can personally be founders of. We would have this short attention span whenever we listen to these pop songs and we would think we know the lyrics but we do not.
There is a song on the radio called “Side to Side” by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I do have to admit it’s such an addictive song and the more I listen to it, the more I end up singing the chorus. Every time I hear this song, I just want to sing along to it. And whenever Nicki Minaj raps, I would start mouthing some part of it but alas, I never noticed what she was singing!
So, for Nicki’s part, she sang “Wrist icicle, ride dick bicycle.” Now, according to urban dictionary, dick bicycle means riding the dick all night long until you get sore the next day. And apparently the whole song is about having sex so hard you cannot walk the next day. I am not one of those haters who would hate on pop music just because a Nickelodeon pop starlet starts singing about sex. Let the kid grow up and she has every rights to sing whatever she wants.
All I am really surprised is how I never actually even knew Nicki Minaj sang “Wrist Icicle, ride dick bicycle”. It was only during the weekend getaway when my friends brought this topic up about this lyric of the song that I noticed it was there in the song. I do not know what to think of it but I still like that song and I still adore Nicki and Ariana.
