Jack Harlow’s ‘First Class’ lyrics & meaning

Jack raps about upgrading his life in the last few years in the lyrics for ‘First Class’, speaking on his experiences and how he’s made it as a superstar.

The 24-year-old is no stranger to clever lyrics and one that fans are obsessing about in his new track is his reference to the hit show Euphoria, which stars the likes of Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney, Jacob Elordi and Alexa Demie, to name a few.

Jack raps:

Can’t lie, I’m on Angus, Cloud 9.

- Jack Harlow - 'First Class'

He references the fan-favourite character from the show; Fezco, who’s played by actor Angus Cloud.

Obviously, Cloud 9 references him being super happy about where he is in life right now, while cleverly tying it into the hit show.

Jack is yet to drop an official music video to go with the track, but so far has shared a montage of polaroid snaps of him with some famous faces as a visualiser on his YouTube channel to go with the song.

He even links up with some unlikely stars for the snaps including UK footballers Jack Grealish and Ashley Cole, as well as British rapper Aitch, and of course, collaborators Lil Nas X and Bryson Tiller amongst many more.

[Intro: Jack Harlow]
Mm

[Chorus: Jack Harlow & Fergie]
I been a (G), throw up the (L)
Sex in the (A.M.), uh-huh
(O-R-O-U-S, yeah)
And I could put you in (First class, up in the sky)
I could put you in (First class, up in the s—, up-up in the s—)
I been a (G), throw up the (L)
Sex in the (A.M.), uh-huh
(O-R-O-U-S, yeah)
And I could put you in (First class, up in the sky), mm, mm
I could put you in (First class, up in the s—, up-up in the s—)

[Verse 1]
I can see the whole city from this balcony
Back in 2019, I was outside freely, but now they got it out for me
I don't care what frat that you was in, you can't alpha me, keep dreamin'
Pineapple juice, I give her sweet, sweet, sweet (Semen)
I know what they like so I just keep cheesin'
Hard drive full of heat seekin'
Tryna come the same day as Jack? Rethink it
You don't need Givenchy, you need Jesus
Why do y'all sleep on me? I need reasons
Uh, I got plaques in thе mail, peak season
Shout out to my UPS workers makin' surе I receive 'em
You can do it too, believe it

[Chorus: Jack Harlow & Fergie]
I been a (G), throw up the (L)
Sex in the (A.M.), uh-huh
(O-R-O-U-S, yeah)
And I could put you in (First class, up in the sky), mm, mm
I could put you in (First class, up in the s—, up-up in the s—)

[Verse 2: Jack Harlow & Polow Da Don]
(Are you ready?) Ha, yes I am
They say, "You a superstar now," damn, I guess I am
You might be the man, well, that's unless I am
Okay, I'll confess I am
Go ahead and get undressed, I am
Okay cool, you on Sunset? I am
I'm 'bout to slide, okay, I'm outside, okay
This lifestyle don't got many downsides
'Cept for the lack of time I get 'round my
Family, makin' sure they never downsize
I got visions of my mom sayin', "Wait, this house mine?"
Can't lie, I'm on Angus, Cloud 9
I got 'em on the bandwagon now, 'bout time
I ain't even got no downtime
Every time I speak, she say, "Yeah, that sounds fine"

[Chorus: Jack Harlow & Fergie]
I been a (G), throw up the (L)
Sex in the (A.M.), uh-huh
(O-R-O-U-S, yeah)
And I could put you in (First class, up in the sky)
I could put you in (First class, up in the s—, up-up in the s—)
I been a (G), throw up the (L)
Sex in the (A.M.), uh-huh
(O-R-O-U-S, yeah)
And I could put you in (First class, up in the sky), mm, mm
I could put you in (First class)
