Sampled from Slick Rick’s “Hey Young World”
The ball was in her lovers court and he knew he could have everything (the stars), yet he still chose to leave and Sade can’t figure out why.

Wordplay on sun/son:
Sun fits in with the rest of the line, while at the same time Jay shows that he appreciates his “baby”/his child.
It’s true! Jay’s alleged son is getting grown..
Note that Jay emphasizes the pregnant pause with a pregnant pause — a hallmark of masterful poetry
Shenelle Scott — Jay’s ex whom he allegedly impregnated — is a year older than him
He was still a young man when he impregnated her, not ready for the responsibility of a relationship..
This whole hook is about walking the walk- claim you have money, hoes, whips? you best be able to prove it.
Rebecca Black is exhibiting typical symptoms of a mind controlled zombie. She has severe problems with amnesia and has to remind herself which day of the week it is.
In the song she says “Thursday” and “Friday” twice but really the underlying meaning is “yesterday was thirsty Thursday, today is Fried Day Friday”
Obviously she is subliminally telling people to go get distracted by getting drunk so they won’t interfere with the Illuminati’s plan to eat your brains.
