The song has been composed on purpose by the American rapper Jucee Froot. She’s used to contribute in famous soundtracks, as she already did for Birds of Prey and Insecure.

The song Down in the Valley fits perfectly the plot of P-Valley TV series as it talks about girls working as strippers to make a living. Let’s analyse together the lyrics and their meaning.

Down in the Valley: the meaning of the lyrics

Down in the Valley is about how the life of a female stripper is. The work environment is a tough one, people going to the strip clubs watching them are not always easy to manage. And most of those girls do this job because they have a family to maintain and kids to feed.

Kids hungry
Can’t do nothing but scream shout
We all choose to live
But it’s different routes
Take the s**t with shine
Gotta make it count

Somehow, Jucee Froot wants to celebrate the pride of these girls, the courage they have to do such a tough job in order to make the money needed by the people they love. And for that reason, she describes all the things the strippers have to bear with, in their job.

These n***as grind hard
But these b**es grind harder
Climbing up the pole
Just to get out the bottom
The crowd, below
Stay ready for the show
The pimps, the dough
Don’t let it take your soul

This is therefore the meaning of the lyrics in P-Valley theme song: those girls are brave, the are there to make a living and they deserve respect. Not all people choose their job in the same way, every life has its peculiarities, and that’s something people don’t always think about.

The P-Valley theme song: the complete lyrics

Down in the valley
Where the girls get naked
If you throwin’ bands
Then you know she gon’ shake it
1, 2 break ’em
3, 4 rake ’em

These n***as grind hard
But these b**es grind harder
Climbing up the pole
Just to get out the bottom
The crowd, below
Stay ready for the show
The pimps, the dough
Don’t let it take your soul

We make fallin’ on the sky look easy
Look at my b**es gangsta walking on the ceiling
Green on the floor
Money talk, can you hear me?
This world is addicting
But dreams is expensive
Keep spending
Work hard for the top

Can’t fall now
But whatever goes up
Must fall down
What you do
When the power out
Kids hungry
Can’t do nothing but scream shout
We all choose to live
But it’s different routes
Take the shit with shine
Gotta make it count
When you live and die by the paper out
Spend a dime just to make it out, yeah

Down in the valley
Where the girls get naked
If you throwin’ bands
Then you know she gon’ shake it
1, 2 break ’em
3, 4 rake ’em
