Paul McCartney has released a music video for ‘Fuh You’ from the Egypt Station album.
The title itself has fans confused as the song lyrics sound like “I just wanna fuck you”. Fans have taken to Twitter to discuss with comments from “what the fuh” to “how did it come from ‘I wanna hold your hand’ to ‘I just want to fuh you’.
They’re not wrong. The Urban Disctionary describes the word “Another term for the word fuck; gangsterized version of the word fuck;used when you wanna sound cool;laid back term for fuck.”
The black and white video was filmed in McCartney’s hometown of Liverpool. The video has an uncomfortable feel considering the title versus the young age of the actors.
McCartney says the song is “sort of a love song, but a raunchy love song”.
It’s not the first time McCartney has been confronted with controversy. In his recent interview with Jimmy Fallon he discussed the period where John Lennon said The Beatles were bigger than Jesus. “It was a bit disturbing when that period happened. John had said something in an article and it got misinterpreted. He had said at the time trying to explain how churches weren’t pulling people in and The Beatles were. He just casually said ‘The Beatles are bigger than Jesus’. He didn’t mean it like that but once it got down to the south, people started burning our records”.
