There is a sentence in Bruno Mars' 24k magic

Let's set this party off right

what does "off right" mean here?

1 Answer 1


I think you should read the off together with the set. To set off, according to OLD:

to start a process or series of events

So it means to start the party. The right is used as an adverb, meaning according to OLD:

correctly or satisfactorily
