Overall, it feels like one of the most important songs I’ve heard in a while.
Rihanna would not be Rihanna if she slept in and got high all the time, so we can eliminate her from the subject matter immediately. While “Hotline Bling” is about the audacity of an ex getting dressed up and going out with her friends after he moved away/they broke up, this echoes a similar sentiment (“I was only gone for the last few months / But you don’t have to wait on me”) in that Drizzy’s wrestling with his feelings, but knows it’s over. Drake, a man who is rightfully bragging about her in a song intended to make his nemeses feel stupid and small.This means that his current love interest is Ontario’s capital, and his dedication is on a Romeo Juliet (so much Shakespeare) scale of passion. Seasonal effect: Rain and wind Emotional effect: Same“U With Me? And Drake believes this woman doesn’t and/or didn’t appreciate what he’s done for her and hates when she shows up without texting.”Stand-out lyric: “Remember you was livin’ at the London for a month, service elevator up to the 4201 / We was still a secret, couldn’t come in through the front” Is it about Rihanna? He also doesn’t want whomever this is to think she can walk around naked in his kitchen without running into his friends.They get what it’s like to be trapped in a bad situation, to feel like you aren’t human, to not understand what’s wrong with you, to wish you could disappear.In no particular order, these are some songs that I’ve been playing on repeat lately and singing along with as loud as I can. They are not necessarily the best songs in the world and I wouldn’t call all of them favorites of mine, but right now, they are something.
