Whether it pops up as a metaphor, a hidden meaning, a symbol, or a straight-up love letter to the item itself, references to food in songs are a lot more common than people think.
5. STIR FRY – MIGOS
Who’s brave enough to cook or play “Stir Fry” at your family’s Thanksgiving?
Don’t waste your time searching for the deeper meaning behind “Stir Fry.” The song is simply the perfect jam to vibe to while you’re cooking, driving, or quarantining at home.
4. PEACHES N CREAM – SNOOP DOGG FT. CHARLIE WILSON
From movies to emojis, this naughty Lil’ fruit has been a prevalent sex symbol.
“Peaches N Cream” is a beautiful example of food being used as a tempting seduction for a different type of craving. However, this song doesn’t really bring anything new that I haven’t gotten before from Snoop Dogg, hence its place on this list.
3. COLLARD GREENS – SCHOOLBOY Q FT. KENDRICK LAMAR
Collard Greens is a must at every Thanksgiving gathering.
This feel-good weed anthem leaves me hungry and craving for more, especially when Kendrick starts going.
2. SOUL FOOD – LOGIC
There’s nothing like music for your soul.
“Soul Food” is deep. While listening to the song, some people will find feelings that they can relate to, while others will ponder on painful perspectives and harsh realities. A song carries an important kind of weight when an artist is willing to give a vulnerable part of themselves to their art.
1. BROCCOLI – DRAM FT. LIL YACHTY
“Broccoli” is the best metaphorical reminder to consume your veggies.
This D.R.A.M. and Lil Yatchy collab gets the top spot for mixing punchy rhymes with an energetic brightness that leaves you with a smile on your face. I can’t be mad when I listen to this funky upbeat song.
