“24/7” by Meek Mill (ft. Ella Mai)
Meek Mill and Ella Mai’s “24/7” is a love song, with romance of course being one of the main themes the entire music industry is built upon. However, put in the hands of a master lyricist like Meek Mill, it becomes more than an average song.
The plot of this track, in its most-basic form, reads like he hooks up with a certain lady, falls in love and eventually marries her. However, what makes it unique is the colorful wordplay and metaphors he uses throughout. For instance, Meek namedrops controversial pro quarterback Colin Kaepernick when describing the moment he ‘kneels’ to propose marriage, and overall he challenges himself to actually drop an exciting rap.
And the titular theme is that this is a romance which is alive every moment of every day. So basically, this is a duet between rapper Meek Mill and songstress Ella Mai.
