I just wanna rock, body ody ah: the viral lyrics and their meaning

“I just wanna rock, body ody ah,” is the most famous line in Lil Uzi Vert’s song released in 2022. It appears in the first verse of the song:

Ha, 1600 block, I just wanna rock
I just wanna, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
I just wanna rock, body-ody ah

The snippet of this part of the song was released on TikTok in September in a profile that wasn’t directly related to Lil Uzi Vert. You can find it here. The audio became immediately viral, reused by hundreds of creators, and became well-known in the video social network.

The line refers to the origins of Lil Uzi Vert’s style: 1600 block is the area in Philadelphia where the rapper was raised. “Being rock” is one of Uzi’s distinctive traits, as people consider him one of the most rock artists in the rap scene. He defines himself as “the only living rockstar,” as in this article on Cool Accidents.

That’s the song’s meaning: I want to sound rock as no one in the rap scene. I’ll release hits different from what you people expect. And I’ll be able to develop a unique vibe.

Lil Uzi Vert is not new to viral songs. This last song was released as a separate single after the EP Red & White was out a couple of months before.
