if you noticed “Honda Accord” trending on Twitter, have no fear — the iconic, ubiquitous, economically-priced sedan isn’t going anywhere. In fact, in may see an increase in popularity thanks to the glowing endorsement it’s given by Lil Uzi Vert on his new album, Eternal Atake.

On the album’s first song, “Baby Pluto,” Uzi gives the automobile an explicit shout-out, rapping, “I ain’t f*ck a bitch in so long, I’d do it in a Honda Accord.” This is a reference to both Uzi’s recent tweet explaining his two-year sex drought as well as his Luv Is Rage 2 track, “444+222.” On that track, Uzi rhymes, “She don’t really get too impressed, Honda Accord.” It’s a clever flip on the rags-to-riches come-up story inherent to hip-hop’s favorite artists; Uzi, who was once forced to drive a Honda Accord out of necessity, has since worked so hard to become successful he can afford to do so out of a sense of nostalgia, ie. because he can.

2020: "I ain't f*ck a b*tch in so long, I'd do it in the Honda Accord (No cap)"
