The meaning of «ric flair drip»

"Ric Flair Drip" is a song by American rapper Offset and record producer Metro Boomin. It was included on their collaborative studio album with 21 Savage, Without Warning (2017). Upon the album's release, it charted at number 71 on the Billboard Hot 100.[2] After its release as the lead single,[3] and a subsequent music video starring Ric Flair himself, it rose to number 13,[4] becoming both Metro Boomin and Offset's highest charting song as lead artists.[5][6] It is prominently featured in the WWE 2K19 soundtrack, particularly in the "Ric Flair Collector's Edition" version of the game.[7] As of September 2021, the song has amassed almost 900 million streams on Spotify, making it the 240th most played song ever on the streaming service.[8] It is also the second most streamed song of all time on Spotify's influential RapCaviar playlist.[9] The song has been credited for popularizing the term "drip", a slang expression denoting one's fashionability and excess swagger.[10][11]

The song is the third track on 21 Savage, Offset and Metro Boomin's collaborative studio album Without Warning, which was released in October 2017.[12] It was ranked the 44th best song of 2017 by Complex Media.[13] It was the 10th most streamed track of 2018 on Apple Music.[14]

On February 4, 2018, the track was certified platinum before even being released as a single, marking Offset's first platinum song as a lead artist. Almost half a year after its initial release, the song peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, following months of gradual ascension from its number 71 debut.[15] The song ultimately spent 31 total weeks on the Hot 100, and was ranked number 38th on Billboard's annual year end chart for 2018.[16][17] It has since been certified 3x platinum by the RIAA,[18] and is both the best-selling, and highest charting song from any solo Migos member as a lead artist.[citation needed]

In late February 2018, Ric Flair posted a photo to his personal Twitter account of himself and Offset in sequin robes reminiscent of those famously worn by Flair during his WWE career, suggesting that a music video was in the works.[19] A music video was released a week later on March 1, and was directed by Bengali-American videographer Shomi Patwary. It was published on 21 Savage's official Vevo channel despite him not being present on the audio of the song.

The visual primarily takes place in a luxury mansion and features appearances from song namesake Ric Flair, fellow Migos members Quavo and Takeoff as well as album-mates, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin.[20][21][22] Patwary described the video's flagrant portrayal of opulence as a parody of the "outlandish" nature of many contemporary hip-hop music videos.[23] The audio cuts midway for an interlude in which Flair delivers his signature "Limousine-Ridin', Jet-Flyin' Son of a Gun" WWE monologue.[24] Throughout the video, Offset can be seen wearing a chain based on Ric Flair's likeness. The $70,000 medallion was originally gifted to Offset by Quality Control Music CEO Pierre "Pee" Thomas for his 26th birthday, and was approved by Ric Flair himself.[25]
