"Wobble Up" is a song recorded by American singer Chris Brown. It was released on April 18, 2019, as the third single from Chris Brown's ninth studio album Indigo, and features vocals from American rappers Nicki Minaj and G-Eazy.[1]

Background[edit]

The song heavily samples "Monkey on tha D$ck" by the late Cash Money Records rap artist Magnolia Shorty. It is Chris Brown's seventh collaboration with Nicki Minaj and third with G-Eazy, and the first between Minaj and G-Eazy.[2]

"Wobble Up" is about twerking (hence the term "wobble") in which Brown and G-Eazy rap from the male point of view patronizing female dancers at the club, though Brown also provides insight to the girl's struggles while trying to impress men, while Minaj raps from the female point of view having dealt with enough men "stunting on [her]" at the club but shouts out to her "real niggas".[3][2][unreliable source?]

Music video[edit]

Chris Brown released the music video for the song on May 20, 2019. American rapper Tyga and internet celebrity Dan Rue make cameos in the video.[4][5] The video is directed by Brown and Arrad Rahgoshay. The following day, the team behind the video were accused by German artist Marius Sperlich for stealing and copying his artwork.[6][7]
