​TikToker Works Out Explicit Real Meaning Behind Lyrics In What's My Name

A TikToker has worked out the explicit real meaning behind lyrics in the 2010 Rihanna and Drake hit 'What's My Name?', having realised there's a sly little reference to - ahem - cunnilingus.

Loading…

The chorus of the song is pretty self-explanatory, as it basically involves Rihanna repeatedly asking: "Ooh na na, what's my name?"

But then Drake comes in and starts rapping about... maths.

He says: "The square root of 69 is eight something, right?"

TikTok user Christian Ruiz (@coluhrs) decided to unpack that line, hopping onto an online calculator to work out that the square root of 69 is 8.30662386292 - or, as Drake puts it, 'eight something'.

In his video, Ruiz looks at the sum and says: "Wait a minute."

He then rewrites the answer to the square root of 69 - the number being a common nickname for an oral sex act where both partners give and receive simultaneously - not as 'eight something', but 'ate something'.

He also adds an emoji of a cat, which, of course, is a coded image for 'p****'.

The revelation also makes particular sense when you put it in the context of the verse, in which Drake raps:

Yeah, I heard you good with them soft lips
Yeah you know word of mouth
The square root of 69 is eight something, right?
'Cause I've been tryna work it out, ow

Yup, 'soft lips' and 'word of mouth' all in there... *shudders*.

Later in the song, Rihanna also mentions wanting to see if someone can 'go downtown' with her, which I'm assuming isn't a geographical reference to the central commercial district of a city.

She says:

Hey boy, I really wanna see if you
Can go downtown with a girl like me
Hey boy, I really wanna be with you
'Cause you just my type

Recently, many people realised just how rude the lyrics are in Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face', too.

While most of us have probably happily sung along with 'Po-po-po-poker face, po-po-po-poker face (Mum-mum-mum-mah)', it turns out we've been getting it wrong. Very wrong indeed.

The lyrics to Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face' actually go:

Po-po-po-poker face, fu-fu-f*** her face (Mum-mum-mum-mah)
Po-po-po-poker face, fu-fu-f*** her face (Mum-mum-mum-mah)

Yep, you read that right... 'F*** her face'.

Taking to Facebook, one person wrote: "So just seen a Facebook post about Lady Gaga 'Poker Face' and how the lyrics are not po po po po poker face I can safely say I'm [mind blown emoji] and shall now be replacing the lyrics with the correct ones."

Another added: "Mind BLOWN that Lady Gaga doesn't sing 'p-p-p-poker face p-p-poker face'. They're not the lyrics. Life is a lie."
