What do Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, and Kanye West all have in common—other than Illuminati membership? They’re all going to be showered with glittery confetti tonight!
That’s right y’all, it’s the night we’ve all been waiting for. The most decadent, luxurious, angelic, sparkly, sequin covered event of the year: The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, of course! While a lot of people are obviously stoked for the lingerie laden angels (duh), we at MetroLyrics are way more excited for the performers. Not only does the decadence of the sound of their music (Watch The Throne, anyone?) match the glam of the fashion show, but we think the lyrics are pretty apropos, too. So, tapping into our inner psychic, here’s what songs we predict Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, and the Throne Occupiers will be serenading the angels with tonight:
(Work it harder, make it better) / N-n-now that that don’t kill me / (Do it faster, makes us stronger) / Can only make me stronger
These angels have been putting themselves through strenuous workouts for the big night and it’s finally paying off! Also, some of these angels gave birth JUST this year and it’s probably impossible to tell. ‘Ye has to perform this to honor all the time the angels spent pumpin’ iron.
He got that super bass / Boom, badoom, boom / Boom, badoom, boom bass / Yeah that’s that super bass
We can totally picture all the VS models struttin’ their stuff in time to all the boom badooms in this one. We think Nicki’s tongue-twisting skillz might outshine them, though…
Girl you really got me bad / You really got me bad / And now I’m gonna get you back / Now I’m gonna get you back
Yeah alright, we’re pretty sure Maroon 5 are gonna play “Moves Like Jagger” BUT Adam Levine’s girlfriend (model, Anne Vyatlitsyna) is walking in the VS show AND she’s the love interest in this music video! This song is totally about her and it would be the sweetest thing if he sang it for her during her ~*big moment*~.
How can somethin’ so gangsta be so pretty in pictures? / With jeans and a blazer and some Louboutin slippers / Uh, Picasso was alive he woulda made her / That’s right n*gga Mona Lisa can’t fade her
Okay, we know these lyrics from money-dripping mogul Jay-Z’s verse are about his better half Queen Bey, but they’re pretty fitting for the VS angels. All the tough work they’ve been through in preparation for the show (cue “Stronger”) has crafted their bods into works of art that would blow even Picasso’s mind. Oh yeah, don’t be surprised if you see a couple pairs of Louboutins stomping the runway, either.
What songs do you think these guys are going to perform? Tune in tonight on CBS at 10/9c to see if your predictions are right.
