Lil Uzi Vert is up to the second single off of his highly anticipated and long overdue second studio album ‘Eternal Atake.’ The newest release in 2020, titled “That Way” samples Backstreet Boys’ classic hit “I Want It That Way” from 1999. Let us take a look at the lyrics and meaning behind this song.
“That Way” is the second single off of Lil Uzi Vert’s upcoming second studio album ‘Eternal Atake.’ The song follows the album’s lead single “Futsal Shuffle 2020” which pretty much became a viral sensation. The rapper also released two promotional tracks, “Sanguine Paradise” and “That’s a Rack” back in 2019. The album is expected to release in March 2020.
In the song, Lil Uzi Vert discusses his lavish lifestyle and how he never comes on the last place because he has the right people around him.

Lyrics Review and Song Meaning of “That Way”
The sample from Backstreet Boys’ hit “I Want It That Way” is a nice jog of memory. Enjoy!
In the pre-warm up to the delivery, Uzi says that he never has sad days because he is with the winning team. He would have a sad day only when he doesn’t earn some dollars. With this motivation, it is no wonder that the shirts he wears have price tags above $2,500!
In the first verse of the song, Uzi brags about his women. He has a woman from Atlanta, Georgia, which is considered to be a ‘better‘ option than any other state. He raps about his adventures with this girl.
Uzi does not forget to mention two of his luxurious car collection: Bentley and Rolls Royce Wraith.
The next line that says “snap back into reality” could be a shoutout to Eminem’s Oscar-winning track “Lose Yourself.” ‘Snapback’ hats are the type to have a snap at the rear of the hat. Uzi Vert boasts that his caps and his jeans are all custom made (fitted) for him.
A black credit card is usually the color of a credit card offered to the elite customers of the bank. Usually, these cards have very high credit limits or even unlimited. Uzi could be saying that because of his reputation, his girl could get a black credit card for herself. Or he could be saying that he himself is the black credit card for his white girlfriend.
The second verse of “That Way” by Lil Uzi Vert is mostly dedicated to his sexual adventures. However, he does not forget to mention that he is “slimy” like a snail, but isn’t as slow as one. “Slime” is an acronym for “Street Life Intelligence and Money is Everything”.
