Glitz
Joeyy Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Only 1 can bring me down is the clerk at Moncler
Only 1′s to crack this baguette with me is mon frère
Bank app, 40 racks, don't know how it got there
I just shrugged at God′s plan, never is it unfair

Foreign lil pop I just muddied it up
Afraid to be alone the 2'ers buddied it up
Pencil neck geeks I know they studying us
Funny enough it isn't funny enough

What? Are you jealous of the glitz?
As soon as I walked in Sak′s I knew something was amiss
I walked in through the back they didn′t cross me off the list
Icky gooey mud this cup is sticking to my ribs

I could never fib but I'll cap ′til I die
Hold me to a higher standard, tax me 1K for the line
I can't text you back, got a P.R. in the Plein
Man crush Monday belt, keep 33rd by side

Fucking up the image is just part of the image
They′ll be no repercussions if I pop another pillage
Cut the lights out he'll shine light on his children
When the ice melts then I know it′s really finished

Only 1 can bring me down is the clerk at Moncler




Only 1's to crack this baguette with me is mon frère
Bank app, 40 racks, don't know how it got there

Overall Meaning

In Joeyy's song "Glitz", he's talking about his extravagant lifestyle and the people he surrounds himself with. He begins the first verse talking about how only the clerk at Moncler can bring him down, insinuating that he has a lot of power and wealth that could not be easily taken away from him. He also mentions his "mon frère", the only one he trusts enough to "crack this baguette" with him, which could be interpreted as sharing his indulgences in luxury.


Joeyy seems to be unbothered about his financial status, stating that he doesn't know how 40 racks ended up in his bank account but that he believes in God's plan and that it's never unfair. He messes up the song's foreign lyrics, implying that he's careless in his actions but also that he's trying to keep up with the persona he's created for himself. He also mentions that people are fascinated by him and his lifestyle, but it's not as glamorous as it seems.


In the second verse, Joeyy continues to describe his life of luxury, including name-dropping luxury brands such as Sak's and Plein. He mentions his "Man crush Monday belt" and how he always keeps it close to him. He also talks about not being held accountable for his mistakes and that he'll continue to indulge in whatever he wants. He ends the verse with a metaphor, saying that when the ice melts, it's really finished, indicating that he'll continue to live his extravagant life until he can't anymore.
