I was listening to the new Chris Brown's album, "Royalty" and the last track/song called "U Did It" which features the rapper Future has the following line that I didn't understand at all:

I just need some codeine just to relax
This the new vivy and millennium, wavy

This is the lyrics according to Genius.com web site.

Also, I don't know what the words "vivy" and "millennium" mean, if someone could help me with that, I'd be grateful.

  • And what makes you think Genius.com has the lyrics correct? Most of these lyrics sites get some of them wrong. – Peter Shor Jan 18 '16 at 5:35
  • @PeterShor it's basically maintained as a community like StackExchange – StillBuggin Jan 18 '16 at 20:15
  • Yes, but there are tons of inaccurate lyrics at any of these sites (they get most of them right, but lyrics that are hard to hear are liable to be wrong). – Peter Shor Jan 18 '16 at 22:20
  • @PeterShor But this part is pretty easy to be heard. I just want to know what's the meaning. – StillBuggin Jan 18 '16 at 22:32

He is saying:

  • This the new Vivian Millennium, wavy

Vivian's Millennium Cafe is a restaurant in LA, California.

I think he's trying to say "This place is the new Vivian Millennium," meaning "This is the new cool place to eat."

Why he says "wavy" at the end is probably solely (and lazily) to prime for the rhyme in the next line ("lately").

We can deduce that Chris Brown probably knows about this cafe, since Amber Rose (someone with whom Chris Brown associates) was spotted there.

Everyone seems to have accepted "vivy and millenium" without thinking it through, despite it's ludicrousness.

  • Wavy is slang. And rap slang, at that. It seems to be the newest entry along the lines of groovy, hip, neat, cool. – Peter Shor Jan 19 '16 at 4:40
