“Can I” by Kehlani (ft. Tory Lanez)

The titular question at hand centers on Kehlani asking her lover, who is being portrayed by Tory Lanez, if she can come over. That is to say that she considers him to be an exceptional love maker. And with herself currently being in the mood, she basically wants to come over for a booty call. So what Tory is telling her in return is that she is more than welcome to come. In fact he is likewise heavily attracted to her and expresses lyrics accordingly.

So conclusively, this is fundamentally a love song. But its intended draw is obviously to use as many unique metaphors as possible which point to the idea of the characters enjoying bedroom fun with each other.
