“Rule the World” by 2 Chainz (Ft. Ariana Grande)
The expression “rule the world” as used in this track is based on the artists’ belief in the overwhelming power they possess as a pair. Interpreted in another way, 2 Chainz and Ariana Grande play the roles of people in a successful romantic relationship. And while Ariana dominates the chorus, this is indeed a 2 Chainz track, which he uses primarily to praise his shorty and detail the joy he derives via their romance.
2 Chainz verbally relays affectionate feelings for his significant other in two ways. At times he addresses her directly. At others he talks about the relationship by instead speaking to the listening audience. And whether rapping from an emotional or carnal, direct or indirect perspective, it is clear that Chainz has very-strong feelings for her and holds this woman in high regard.
However, this does not mean that “Rule the World” lacks general applicability. Indeed the qualities that Chainz states he values in his partner – primarily being her dedication and sensual appeal – are attributes virtually any man would appreciate in a similar setting. By and large, the vibe Ariana and 2 Chainz are collectively putting forth is the type that an actual couple can enjoy while chilling together.
