In a song called "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea, she raps: "Swagger on super, I can't shop at no department"

What does she mean by "swagger on super"?

If you know this catchy hip hop already, please help me understand this part of the lyrics.

Here, you'll see the full lyrics after you click off the pop-up.

Here, you can listen to the entire song (it's at 1m 10s in there, and there's currently some debate as to exactly what the third word is - feel free to listen and comment [FumbleFingers]).

  • Thanks, but I've already seen the Jimmy Kimmel's clip which doesn't cover as far as the OP. – JK2 May 16 '14 at 19:34
  • You are the OP. – Elliott Frisch May 16 '14 at 19:36

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about lyrics interpretation. – FumbleFingers May 16 '14 at 19:38

    Off topic due to bad song. – RyeɃreḁd May 16 '14 at 19:39

OP has mistranscribed the lyric. From rapgenius.com...

Swagger on stupid, I can't shop at no department

Iggy is saying because she is drowning in so much cash, her swag has risen to such a high extremity that is has now become “stupid”, implying that it’s completely silly and unbelievable for just one person to be that hot.

Because of this luxurious life style, a department store is a shopping retailer you won’t find Iggy caught dead in.

  • Thanks, but the first link in the OP is to the rapper's official site and its the official lyrics. So, it's not "swagger on stupid" but "swagger on super". Sometimes, the lyrics on rapgenius.com are incorrect. – JK2 May 16 '14 at 19:37
  • Mistranscription is on Iggy's official web-site. Who needs an "editor"? – Elliott Frisch May 16 '14 at 19:37
  • @JK2: I don't generally listen to rap, and despite posting this answer, I've closevoted as Off Topic anyway. But you've goaded me into listening, and it seems clear to me the official site must be wrong. I hear stupid, not super. – FumbleFingers May 16 '14 at 19:43
  • If you're right and the official site has its lyrics wrong, how lame is that?! – JK2 May 16 '14 at 19:46
  • @JK2 do you mean Lamé ? – Frank May 16 '14 at 19:52
