What is the meaning of “Albatraoz”?

Today, I want to talk about a word that seems to be rising in popular culture. It’s a word that many of you may be familiar with, but few of you will know what it means.

An Albatraoz is a strong, independent woman who doesn’t need a man. If you’re an Albatraoz, you’re a woman who is perfectly capable of finding her own way in life. You can make your own money, satisfy your own needs, and take care of yourself.

As you can probably guess, the word comes from “Albatross”, a type of bird who lives at sea. In this article, I want to talk about why the word has grown so much, where it comes from, and what it has to do with the bird.

Hopefully, by the end of this, you’ll feel confident in calling the women in your life an “Albatraoz”.

What is an Albatross?

Let’s start off with the bird—the Albatross.

When I saw one, my first thought was that it looked a little like a seagull which had been put on steroids. They have a similar shape and colour to the classic seaside bird, but these guys are bigger (and I mean much bigger) and with a lot more muscle.

These birds are common among the British Isles, often living on rocks, far away from the mainland. Unlike seagulls, foraging for food isn’t an option for them. They need to hunt, most of the time, it’s fish.

The Band

The term “Albatraoz” started as the name of a band.

The band is from Sweden, and are known for creating electro-hip-hop type music. I have to say, their style of music is very niche. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but they don’t seem to be doing too badly for themselves.

It’s the sort of music you might expect to hear if you were to enter a nightclub. I get the feeling very few of their listeners would usually be so sober, however, after a few drinks, everything sounds like Mozart.

The Song

Outside of Sweden, I’m sure that many of you will have first heard the word “Albatraoz” in the song “I’m an Albatraoz”.

The song was released in 2014, and makes like the music of the band, it’s the sort of tune you would be likely to hear if you go into a nightclub.

The song is by a man called AaronChupa who is actually a member of the band “Albatraoz”. It is best known for having a chorus that’s easy to sing along to, and a dubstep beat that’s fun to have a boogie to.

The Lyrics

Allow me to do what very few people have done in the past. Allow me to read between the lines of a nightclub song.

Within the song, another woman by the name of “Lory” is described as being a “little mouse”. This is likely an indication that Lory is a subservient woman who will do anything for a man to get her money.

On the other hand, the singer, who describes herself as an Albatraoz can make her own money, she has no need for a man.

The message from the singer to Lory is “Have this man, I don’t need one”.

Why women want to be Albatrosses

It might seem odd that women are trying to equate themselves with a seagull on steroids. However, when you take a more in-depth look into the life of the Albatross, it makes sense why they would want to relate.

The Albatross is the largest flying bird on the planet. They are powerful creatures who are at the top of their food chain.

Much like humans, albatrosses are also monogamous. When they mate, they mate for life. And much like humans, it’s usually the man’s job to do the impressing. The women’s job is to pick the best man.

Alternatives

These days, there are many ways that we can refer to a powerful woman.

The most common two are “Boss b****” and “Bad b****”. These two terms came about thanks to female pop-stars such as Beyoncé and Doja Cat.

Other phrases you could use include Bawse, Queen, or just simply “powerful woman”.

In the past, women who didn’t have a man were known as “Spinsters”. But as society has moved on, this term has been designated to the dustbin of history. These days, people who we used to call “Spinsters” are more commonly known as “Bachelorettes”.

Feminism

If women have shown anything in the past century, it’s that they can be just as powerful as men can be.

Thanks to Feminism, women can make their own money, and don’t rely on a man to be satisfied in life. Women can even do jobs that would have been unthinkable in Victorian times, such as Doctor, Lawyer, even politician.

Now that the term “Spinster” is long gone, we have a library of words that we can call single women who are making their own way in life.

Equality is on the rise, and it’s not going down anytime soon. ‘

Critisism

However, some more conservative-minded people take issue with the “girl bawse” culture that we seem to live in.

The problem with Feminism is that it tries to make women equal to men by making them behave like men. This goes against our nature.

Women are naturally kind, gentle, and caring- there is nothing wrong with this. Men and women work well together because men provide strength, and women provide kindness.

Being a “bad b****” isn’t a good thing.

Conservatives will argue that women who try hard to be an “Albatraoz” are often some of the saddest and loneliest women there are.

Conclusion

An Albatraoz is a strong, powerful woman who doesn’t need a man to be happy. She can make her own money.

The term comes from the Swedish band “Albatraoz”, but it became popular thanks to the song “I’m an Albatraoz”.

In the song, the singer tells “Lory” that she is welcome to have a particular man because she has no need for any of them.

It makes sense that women want to compare themselves to a powerful bird such as an Albatross. These days, it’s all about girl power!
