WTH

Songfacts®:

  • WTH, which stands for "way too high," details a bad trip that has Aiko hallucinating that she's Alice stuck in Wonderland. However, the LA songstress isn't actually singing about marijuana. "My songs about weed are double entendres and are usually also be about love – like love as a drug," she explained to Radio.com.

    "I think society and some people may look down on women smoking, but if that's what you do then you should be able to talk about it," Aiko added. "A few years ago, like during the Sailing Souls mixtape, I wrote and recorded most of those songs high. Now, I don't smoke as often and I feel like I can channel a different high now. I feel like being high means thinking outside of your comfort zone. Whether you're using weed to get there or your mind, being high helps you go places that you wouldn't normally."
