Drake – Way 2 Sexy Ft. Young Thug & Future | Lyrics Meaning Explained
“Way 2 Sexy” is the seventh track on Drake’s 2021 album ‘Certified Lover Boy.’ The song puts Young Thug and Future on the vocals of the track, two frequent collaborators with Drake. The song is about, well, being too sexy for…everything.
‘Certified Lover Boy’ is the highly-anticipated sixth studio album by Drake, released on September 3, 2021. Drake talked about the album in July; “we aim for that head. We don’t aim to please. Certified Lover Boy on the way. And that’s for anyone in the way.” This is his follow-up project to his 2018 album ‘Scorpion.’
The chorus by Future flexes on being too sexy for syrup, for girls, for this world, for this ice, for the jack, for the chain, for your gang, for this fame, for the trap music, and for that cap. Essentially, he is better than all the nonchalant things in life. The song also samples “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred from 1991.

Drake “Way 2 Sexy” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
In the first verse, Drake says he is too sexy to accept requests, to go unprotected (which is a reference to having unprotected sex, as well as his life being threatened), and for metro housing.
And she popped a Tesla, now she goin’ electric
While Tesla is infamous for its electric cars, it is also a street name for an MDMA by the same name. Taking MDMA also makes you feel sexually excited which can be seen as being electric.
In the second verse by Future, he prays for his people while flexing on his riches and the enemies that it has attracted. But for the ladies, he has a special surprise;
That’s that action, her best work on her knees
A girl being on her knees is a common reference to her performing oral sex on a guy.
Future is living the life, so he just might be too sexy for a mundane life.
In the third verse of the song, Young Thug raps about the riches that the music game has earned him.
Too sexy to count (Ah), fetty (Oh)
Red diamonds, spaghetti (Oh)
This paper, I shred it (Yeah)
Baguettes are a type of diamond cut.
I pray to the chopper under my pillow, tooth fairy (Woo)
The tooth fairy is folklore among kids where when their teeth start falling out, they keep it under their pillow overnight and the tooth fairy visits them at night and takes the tooth from them in exchange for a small payment. ‘Chopper’ is a word used to refer to teeth as well, especially artificial. It is also slang for a helicopter. Maybe Young Thug wishes to own a helicopter one day.

Drake released an equally hilarious music video for “Way 2 Sexy.” In the music video, Drake turns into a gray-haired potbelly senior who enjoys walks on the beach, turns into a Michael Jackson impersonator, a Rambo (or Drambo, in this case), Backstreet Boys impersonators with Future & Kawhi Leonard, and includes a very casual ‘Wet by Drake’ perfume commercial right in the middle of the video. What more could you ask from a music video?!
