Strip That Down - Liam Payne ft. Quavo




The Experience: Don't say nothing, girl, strip that down for me... Straight up desire, no relationship...


Music video: The video follows the lyrics - Liam and Quavo focused on the bodies.

The Meaning of Strip That Down: The lyrics claim that Liam is ready to live in more than 1D - meaning both more than One Direction and more than a single flat dimension. And while the One Direction part is obviously true, Strip That Down never moves past a flat one dimensional view of his girl. She's nothing more than a body. What matters is that (her body) - strip that down for me. What matters is what her body makes him feel - girl, I love it when your body (grinds on me). What matters is that her body draws the attention he can't get by himself - when we pull up, shut the club down. He doesn't want a relationship - don't say nothing, girl. He just wants to use her, till the next body comes around.

Ask yourself: Why are so many relationships reduced to user and used?

LYRICS:

[Quavo]
Huncho
Quavo
Yo yo

[Liam Payne]
You know, I've been taking some time
And I've been keeping to myself (self)
I had my eyes up on the prize
Ain't watching anybody else
But your love, it hit me hard, girl
Yeah, you're bad for my health
I love the cards, that I've been dealt
Do you feel the same as well?

[Liam Payne]
You know, I used to be in 1D (now I'm out free)
People want me for one thing (that's not me)
I'm not changing, the way, that I (used to be)
I just wanna have fun (and get rowdy)
One Coke and Bacardi (sippin' lightly)
When I walk inside the party (girls on me)
F1 type Ferrari (6 gear speed)
Girl, I love it when your body (grinds on me)

[Liam Payne (Quavo)]
You know, I love it, when the music's loud
But c'mon, strip that down for me, baby
Now there's a lot of people in the crowd
But only you can dance with me
So put your hands on my body
And swing that round for me, baby (swing)
You know, I love it when the music's loud
But c'mon, strip that down for me

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, strip that down, girl
Love when you hit the ground, girl
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, strip that down, girl
Love, when you hit the ground

[Liam Payne]
You know, that since the day I met you
Yeah, you swept me off my feet
You know, that I don't need no money
When your love is beside me
Yeah, you opened up my heart
And then you threw away the key
Girl, now it's just you and me
And you don't care 'bout, where I've been

[Liam Payne]
You know, I used to be in 1D (now I'm out free)
People want me for one thing (that's not me)
I'm not changing, the way that I (used to be)
I just wanna have fun (and get rowdy)
One Coke and Bacardi (sippin' lightly)
When I walk inside the party (girls on me)
F1 type Ferrari (6 gear speed)
Girl, I love it when your body (grinds on me)
Baby

[Liam Payne and Quavo]
You know, I love it, when the music's loud
But c'mon, strip that down for me, baby
Now there's a lot of people in the crowd
But only you can dance with me
So put your hands on my body
And swing that round for me, baby (yeah)
You know, I love it when the music's loud
But c'mon, strip that down for me

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, strip that down, girl
Love when you hit the ground, girl
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(strip that down)
Oh, strip that down, girl
Love, when you hit the ground
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, strip that down, girl
Love when you hit the ground, girl
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, strip that down, girl
Love, when you hit the ground
(Quavo)

[Quavo]
She gon' strip it down for a thug, yeah (strip it down)
Word around town, she got the buzz, yeah (word)
Five shots in, she in love now (shots)
I promise, when we pull up, shut the club down (hey)
I took her from her man, don't nobody know (know)
If you brought the CL, better drive slow (slow)
She know how to make me feel with my eyes closed (skrrt skrrt)
Anything goes down with the Huncho (Huncho)

[Liam Payne (Quavo)]
You know, I love it, when the music's loud
But c'mon, strip that down for me, baby
Now there's a lot of people in the crowd
But only you can dance with me
So put your hands on my body
And swing that round for me, baby
You know, I love it when the music's loud
But c'mon, strip that down for me

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
C'mon, strip that down for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (ayy)
Don't say nothing, girl,
Strip that down for me (strip it down)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
All I want, girl,
If you strip that down for me (strip it down)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You're the one, girl,
C'mon, strip that down for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
