Jack Harlow – Nail Tech

Jack Harlow - Nail TechJack Harlow kicked off the rollout toward his sophomore album with the release of “Nail Tech” on Friday (February 18). The Louisville native clashes different worlds in the coinciding visual when he pays homage to DMX and impersonates late Apple CEO, Steve Jobs.

Horns courtesy of Boi-1da flood the start of the Frank Borin-directed clip with Harlow walking through a nail salon with Yung Miami, who plays his love interest in the visual. If there’s anyone who knows about healthy nails, it’s Jack Harlow as a Jack Harlow fingernails account exists on Instagram with nearly 1,000 followers.

Harlow then gets his Steve Jobs on by delivering a keynote speech while donning the Jobs signature fit of a black turtleneck, blue jeans and sneakers. There’s also a scene with the “WHATS POPPIN” rapper holding a few dogs on leashes, which can be looked at as a tribute to a famous photo of the late DMX.

In support of the single, Jack Harlow also touched base with Zane Lowe over at Apple Music where he spoke on his rise, “Nail Tech” setting the stage for his next album and why stopping drinking was one of the best decisions of his life.

“I deaded it and it’s one of the greatest decisions I’ve ever made,” Harlow said of cutting out alcohol. “I’m more focused than ever. I tell people, it sounds crazy, but I’m feeling stronger than I felt. And what I noticed about it is it kind of numbs you, it kind of dulls you down in terms of excitement, in terms of happiness, in terms of anything. And now I feel raw feelings, I felt like when I was eight years old.”

I don’t take Ls, I give ’em out and I chuck ’em up
First listen, they hearin’ this shit like, “What the fuck?”

Lyrics:

Intro
Mm-mm, mm, mm-mm
Tss

Verse 1
My nail tech knows how to keep a lil’ secret
I don’t wish for my success, I speak it
I caught a buzz, and you did too, but you tweakin’
I look like I been gettin’ money, I reek it
You smell me, that’s LV
Walkin’ ’round with my chest out, and my skin smooth, I’m healthy
I’m in the mix and I’m handshakin’ but most of y’all can’t help me (Nah)
Most of y’all ain’t wealthy (Nope), most of y’all just dress like it
I caught the vibe that y’all givin’ off, and I’m tryna make myself less like it
This chick got a lil’ Porsche body, I might let the bro test drive it
It’s hard for me to get excited, I love music, and stress ’bout it
My city haulin’ and I’m cosigning this wave, comin’ up next out it
Ridin’ ’round and this shotgun in her Tesla
Hangin’ both of my legs out of it, like “What’s up?” (What’s up?)
I got stakes and they too high now, I can’t fuck up (Can’t fuck up)
I like girls that’s down to Earth, so don’t be stuck up (Stuck up)
I don’t take Ls, I give ’em out and I chuck ’em up
First listen, they hearin’ this shit like, “What the fuck?”

Pre-Chorus
Ten toes, that’s my MO
Fam’ over ‘Gram, that’s my MO (On my momma)
Fuck a close friends, I got friends that I keep close
And they let it go while I reload

Chorus
Like baow, baow, baow
TSA just opened my book-bag up and my chain hittin’ like
Baow, baow, baow, baow
The king’s back in his hometown, when them wheels hit and I touchdown they
Baow, baow, baow, baow
She down low, three point stance, I’m back there doin’ Jack dance like
Baow, baow, baow, baow

Verse 2
And I’m not no fashionista, but I’m fly though (But I’m fly)
And I know I gave up drinkin’, but I’m high though (But I’m high)
I told her, “I don’t cum from head, but you can try though” (You can try)
I’m not on top of this shit yet, but I’m that guy though
I take a look ’round and my comp and it’s just, uh (Ooh)
Wide open, big whippin’, it slide open (Mm-mm)
I notice they treat me like I’m chosen (I’m chosen)
Eyes open, heart clean and my mind focused
This shit just keeps goin’ how I wrote it
How the hell could you doubt us?
I mean, back then it made sense, but it’s like, now what?
Now they down to come ’round just to be ’round us
You ain’t one of my dawgs, why do you hound us?
It’s very few of you I like, but it’s a whole lot of y’all I don’t trust
‘Cause

Pre-Chorus
Ten toes, that’s my MO
Fam’ over ‘Gram, that’s my MO
Fuck a close friends, I got friends that I keep close
And they let it go while I reload

Chorus
Like baow, baow, baow
TSA just opened my book-bag up and my chain hittin’ like
Baow, baow, baow, baow
The king’s back in his hometown, when them wheels hit and I touchdown they
Baow, baow, baow, baow
She down low, three point stance, I’m back there doin’ Jack dance like
Baow, baow, baow, baow
