There's a bizarre hidden meaning to Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty", according to superfans
Superfans have come up with an incredibly detailed analysis of Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty" feat. 2 Chainz, paying special attention to his claim that he knows what the girls want from London to Taiwan.
In Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty" he makes a lot of very specific claims about where exactly he knows what the girls want.
It includes the lyrics explaining that he knows what the world wants, from New York to Haiti.
Get jazzy on it
I'm that flight that you get on, international
First class seat on my lap girl, riding comfortable
'Cause I know what the girl them need,
New York to Haiti
I got lipstick stamps on my passport,
You make it hard to leave
And from London to Taiwan
I know what the girl them want,
London to Taiwan
I got lipstick stamps on my passport
I think I need a new one
But now fans on Tumblr have done a detailed analysis of where Mr Derulo knows what the girls want, and come to some surprising conclusions about his claims.
One Tumblerer started off by detailing on a map exactly where Jason claims he knows what the girls want.
Glowcloud pointed out that he really has no clue what the women of Greenland want. The women of Greenland remain a mystery to Jason.
But others thought this was just due to unfair mapping. Clearly Mr Derulo knows women, and his claims must have been longitudinal rather than latitudinal. They called for further analysis.
Then things got worse for Jason, when his map of where he knows what the girls want got even smaller.
And it turns out that the only real places where Mr Derulo knows what the girls want is in the sea. He knows what all the female fish want. He knows what them girl fish need.
Another fan tried to redeem Derulo, claiming that maybe he was just making an epistemic point about the limits of knowledge.
But Tumblr concluded that Jason was being 100% literal, and the song is actually him bragging about how he bangs mermaids.
The theory has gone viral.
With people as far back as 2014 prophesising the admission in a fever dream.
