Drake is that one artist that will put you in your feelings at any time of the day.
He somehow causes us to evaluate our own relationships every time he drops a track about his complicated love life. Last week he released his newest single, “Girls Love Beyonce,” featuring James Fauntleroy and pours out all his emotions but this time I think we can actually learn a thing or two.
Lesson one is that men worry about the same things that women worry about, they just don’t tell us.
These days it’s hard to meet women
Feel like my love life is finished
I’ve been avoiding commitment
That’s why I’m in this position
I’m scared to let somebody in on this
No new friends, no no no
You know how this s*** go
You got your fair share of admirers that call your phone
You try to act like it’s just me, but I am not alone
The second lesson is that society’s “money over everything” mentality is ruining our chance at love. We’re so busy getting money that we aren’t developing real relationships with each other.
All my young boys ‘round me saying, “Get money and f*** these h**s”
Where we learn these values? I do not know what to tell you
And finally, believe it or not guys do get to a point where they are tired of the party scene and just want a good woman to spend their time with. No one wants to play games forever!
I’m just trying to find a reason not to go out every evening
I need someone that’ll help me think of someone besides myself
I need someone I leave through the front door with
‘Cause we don’t wanna hide no more
Plus you’re not shy no more
Neither of us wanna play the side no more
No, I’m not alone
And ya’ll thought “Marvin’s Room” was emotional. Well, Drizzy does it again and manages to upset his male fans for breaking the “guy code.”
Regardless of what people have to say, this is some pretty legit relationship advice and actually brings a few things to light for the ladies. My main takeaway from this track is that it is OK to be honest about your fears, wants and needs. Communication is the key to a successful relationship after all, right?
