“I Know You Want It”: 10 Popular Songs You Grooved To That People Say Are Problematic

When a beat is too good or a hook is too catchy, many of us just groove and don’t even pay attention to the lyrics. But that’s not everybody.

When a song has lyrics that stick out for reasons that don’t have anything to do with good songwriting or production but rather, the overall message, you know someone is going to have a lot to say about it. From songs that talk about taking advantage of people when they’re intoxicated to others that just have creepy messages, these are popular tracks some people love while others say they’re quite problematic.

How Many Drinks? – Miguel

Despite being infectious, Miguel’s “How Many Drinks?” was given the side-eye by some for the hook, which basically said, I’ll buy you drinks but don’t want to waste my time if it won’t get you to go home with me:

How many drinks would it take you to leave with me?
Yeah you look good, and I got money
But I don’t wanna waste my time
Back of my mind, I’m hoping you say two or three
You look good; we came to party
But I don’t wanna waste my time
