Hey Mama - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj ft. Afrojack



The Experience: Nicki Minaj writes the lyrics to David Guetta's new single Hey Mama. Afrojack provides a very bestial-sounding male voice, and Nicki's voice describes how she will serve him... "I make sure I'm on my toes, on my knees." But this isn't a love song. It's slavery - read more to find out why.

Video: Waiting. 

The meaning of David Guetta's single Hey Mama is a woman making herself a slave, a guy's thing. There are 18 references to a master-slave relationship. Hey Mama is sick in four different ways:

  1. Of course, sexual service was going to get mentioned. Everyone expected that. ""I be whatever that you tell me when you ready." 
  2. But it's worse. She'll serve him in every way: "Yes I do the cooking / Yes I do the cleaning." "Yes you be the boss / Yes I be respecting." 
  3. Him making her into an object is bad. But there's six times when she even describes her sex organs as objects. She's accepted his objectifying her - she even does it to herself.
  4. And while a devoted woman-slave is bad, if he's a good guy, it could maybe pretend to look redeeming. But she's not enthralled by his generous heart. She just enslaves herself for his "d-ck game." She's made an object out of him.
Ask Yourself: Is love service or slavery? What's the difference
