Moonlight

Album: ? (2018)
Charted: 17 13

Songfacts®:

  • XXXtenacion uses the term "moonlight" to both compliment a girl that he admires and highlight his success as an artist.

    Spotlight, uh, moonlight, uh
    Nigga, why you trippin'? Get your mood right, uh
    Shawty look good in the moonlight
    All these pussy niggas so bad mind


    "Spotlight" and "moonlight", are allusions to the attention Xxxxtenacion has been receiving from the media for his music. However the South Florida native has struggled with mental health issues and he is finding it difficult to deal with the light that is shining on him. The track also doubles as a love song in which X tells a girl he likes that she looks "good in the moonlight" compared to the other females.
