Song of the Day #3,619: ‘Walk It Talk It’ – Migos feat. Drake

Wrapping up our latest installment of ‘What the Kids are Listening to,’ we have Post Malone at #13 with ‘Rockstar’ (featured here way back in December when it was enjoying its eighth straight week at #1) and Migos at #14 with ‘Walk It Talk It.’

Appropriately, given his dominance these past two weeks, this song features Drake.

I have to say up front that the chorus of ‘Walk It Talk It’ is painful. Just look at the lyrics below and you’ll see that it consists of the phrase “Walk it like I talk it” repeated 16 times. But it does have a hypnotic quality that works if you’re not thinking about it too hard.

Chorus aside, though, I kind of love this song and its accompanying video. The music is pleasantly mellow, a delicately chiming keyboard meandering under a skittering beat.

As for the video, it imagines a 70s music show called Culture Ride, with a host played by Jamie Foxx. The 70s costumes are delightful, as is Drake rocking a jheri curl.

Nice way to end the week.

[Intro: Quavo]
Yeah, yeah (Deko)
Woah, hold on (OG Parker)

[Chorus: Quavo]
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it

[Verse 1: Quavo]
Take my shoes and walk a mile, somethin’ that you can’t do (woo, hey)
Big talks of the town, big boy gang moves (gang moves)
I like to walk around wit’ my chain loose (chain, chain)
She just bought a new ass but got the same boobs (same boobs)
Whippin’ up dope, scientist
(Whip it up, whip it up, cook it up, cook it up, skrr, skrr)
That’s my sauce, where you find it?
(That’s my sauce, look it up, look it up, find it)
Addin’ up checks, no minus
(Add it up, add it up, add it up, add it up, yeah)
Get your respect in diamonds (ice, ice, ice, ice, ice, ice)
I bought a Plain Jane Rollie, these niggas bought they fame (woo)
I think my back got scoliosis ’cause I swerve the lane (skrr)
Heard you signed your life for that brand new chain (I heard)
Think it came with stripes but you ain’t straight with the gang (gang, gang)

[Chorus: Quavo]
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it (yeah)
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (talk it)

Walk it, walk it like I talk it (talk it)
Walk it like I talk it (let’s go)
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it (woo)
Walk it like I talk it
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (hey)
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it (yeah)
Walk it like I talk it
Walk it, walk it like I talk it

[Verse 2: Drake]
Ayy, I gotta stay in my zone
Say that we been beefin’ dog, but you on your own
First night, she gon’ let me fuck ’cause we grown
I hit her, gave her back to the city, she home (she at home now)
That was that
So I can’t be beefin’ with no wack nigga, got no backbone
Heard you livin’ in a mansion in all your raps though
But your shit look like the trap on this Google Maps, though
We been brothers since Versace bando, woah
Name ringin’ like a Migo trap phone, woah
Used to be with Vashtie at Santo’s
That’s on Tommy Campos, we live like Sopranos and I—

[Chorus: Quavo]
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it (yeah)
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (talk it)
Walk it like I talk it (woo)
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (talk it)
Walk it like I talk it (let’s go)
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it (woo)
Walk it like I talk it
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (hey)
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it (yeah)
Walk it like I talk it
Walk it, walk it like I talk it

[Verse 3: Offset]
Woo, woo, woo, Offset
Niggas pocket watchin’ (watchin’)
I want that thot, this thot, ménagin’ (which one?)
I bought a franchise to double up the profits (franchise)
We make a landslide, chopper get to poppin’ (landslide)
Eliott got me rocky
Blow a socket, chicken teriyaki (brr)
Take off rocket keep ’em in pocket
Water gon’ lock it, quadruple the profit (profit)
I walk like I walk (hey) talk like I talk (woah)
What’s in my vault? Load of cash and the salts (brr)
I put a lab in my loft (lab)
She cook up and jab with the folk (jab)
By the pair, I got karats that choke (by the pair)
By the pair, I got karats each load (by the pair)
Private life, private jets ’round the globe (private life)
Hit a bitch, hit a lick with the ‘cho (hey)

[Chorus: Quavo]
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it (yeah)
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (talk it)
Walk it like I talk it (woo)
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (talk it)
Walk it like I talk it (let’s go)
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)

[Verse 4: Takeoff]
Watch it buck, no Milwaukee (hunnid)
Walk it, like I talk it
That’s my bro, he know the lingo (lingo)
Ain’t no walkie-talkie (no)
This some, “You know, why don’t we know?” (We know?)
Hold out on that coffee
Smoke the cookie, get the coughin’
Drop dead fresh, I need a coffin
Ballin’, somethin’ we do often (ball)
Take the pot and I’m splashin’ up, dolphin (splash)
Take the nine and go buy me a faucet (nine)
Walkin’ like I talk a nigga done bought it (uh)
I play the coach so I gotta call it (call it)
Up in the shits, some niggas just dormant (shits)
Walk in the buildin’, they start applaudin’ (applaudin’)
I get a rebound, ain’t talkin’ ’bout Spalding (ball)

[Chorus: Quavo]
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it (yeah)
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (talk it)
Walk it like I talk it (woo)
Walk it like I talk it (walk it)
Walk it like I talk it
Walk it, walk it like I talk it (talk it)
Walk it like I talk it (let’s go)

    I haven’t heard this one or seen the video before. The song is okay, but the video is quite entertaining.
