Because the booty don't lie
No, no, the booty don't lie, oh no, the booty don't lie
proof ERYKAH BADU’S BOOTY DON’T LIE!
“The booty don’t lie” is a reference to the idea that your body will move of its own volition when a song is good, and that your body is therefore trustworthy when your mind is confused. Two other examples of this concept are:
The Propellerheads; “History Repeating”: “Why ask your head, it’s your hips that are swinging”
Shakira; “Hips Don’t Lie”: “you know I am on tonight and my hips don’t lie / And I am starting to feel it’s right”
The idea is that if you feel the merit of this song in your body, it must be true, because the booty don’t lie.
