Can we add some more color, um, like, some more, yellow
Yeah, that's good
Tyler always talks about how he sees his music (Goblin was Winter, Wolf is Summer). For this track he wants more yellow. He says to add yellow, because yellow is the colour connected to positivity and happiness. To make the scene more positive, this is reflected in the music video.
Furthermore, the phrasing may be referring to the lyric book. It’s not a lyric book, it’s a screenplay
It’s also worth noting that Pharrell has synaesthesia. It’s a condition that invokes numbers & words being inherently linked with a colour. This could be a tangible connection to Pharrell & N.E.R.D’s Sooner or Later. His hook on that track is reminiscent of his work on this song.
