As anyone who read my review of “Accelerate” knows, I wasn’t a fan of Ty Dolla $ign on that Xtina track — her new single released this week, “Twice,” is much better and actually worth a listen — but “Clout” is pretty decent.
I have absolutely no idea what this song is about; even after trying to dissect the lyrics I’m pretty lost, and the only conclusion I’ve come to is that “clout” might be some sort of synonym for “dick?” The second verse is pretty descriptive about “suck[ing] on the tip-top,” but rap is pretty full of fellatio anyway, who who really knows.
“Clout” is really just a fun song to jam to while you’re driving with the windows down pretending that you’re also onstage “with the clout” with Ty and Savage. It’s not groundbreaking or even particularly good, but it knows what it is, so it works.
The track’s got a good beat and keeps the same level of energy throughout, with the slight exception of the creepy vibe I feel listening to 21 Savage rap, “Trojan smile, I need a big sock.”
Idk, the end, enlighten me in the comments if you actually know what this song is about.
