Lyrics and Meanings

Bars 1-4

Just In I’m a Believer no Bieber
*Justin Bieber fans are known as beliebers. Christ followers are referred to as believers.

Quarantine bars made for breakin cabin fever
*Shoutout COVID-19

My lady gotta know in her heart I won’t deceive her

Or deny our love in the streets like Peter
*Matthew 26:34 – Jesus told Peter he’d deny him three times before the rooster crowed. Peter said he would never. Jesus ended up being right.

Bars 5-8

Good girl under Christ Umbrella, my Rihanna
*Rihanna’s First Album’s was titled Good Girl Gone Bad featuring the smash hit, Umbrella

Livin life like a young God fearin Madonna
*Madonna was that deal in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Imagine her potential impact as a believer.

Cover our days in grace, love and honor

Cause I don’t need a bust down Thotiana
*Blueface had a No. 1 rap hit in 2019 called “Thotiana”

Bars 9-12

Stay in the Word cause satan will devour
*1 Peter 5:8 – Be alert and of sober mind, satan prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

You got that power that Holy Ghost power

You got that power that Holy Ghost power
*Holy Ghost power is a song by Chicago Mass Choir. This is a directly play on the bars PartyNextDoor recites in the same place in the original version of “Believe It.”

This is our moment, our year & our hour

Bars 13-16

Louis in the temple fresh fashion at Villanova
*Louis Vuitton at church or Fashion(nova) at a college campus in in Philadelphia, either way I’m always fresh.

*Both Temple and Villanova are universities in the Philadelphia area.

Vegas line on His goodness bet I take the over
*If I were a betting man, I’m always taking the over on how good God is with my life

Summer days Uzi long winter nights get colder
*An uzi is a long machine gun
*Also a play on Lil Uzi Vert’s Money Longer hit from 2016

Im a streets witness please believe in Jehovah
*Jehovah Witnesses go door to door in the streets
*Also a play on Jay-Z, “God MC, me Jay Hova” lyric on “The Takeover”
