The Song Review

Turn Down for What Video Interpretation

Turn down for what music video is nothing like you have ever seen. It presents the artist with an unusual disease involving his genitalia. However, the video does not stop here. It continuously boosts partying and keeps the celebration going.

There are scenes of the artist humping in the air. The artist also continuously smashes objects with his reproductive parts. The view is very unsettling. We also see a couple fight and commit indecent exposure in an apartment building. Toward the end of the video, the participants rage in a basement. Everyone is sweating through their clothes with their gentiles bouncing.

The Bottom Line

Turn Down for what is an energetic song with a beat that does not slow down. Its audio is pleasing to the ears. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about its video. What are your thoughts on this DJ Snake and Lil Jon collab? Let us know in the comments below
