When love is real you put it in a song. At least that’s what Drake is doing now with his muse and boo Rihanna.
In a new song dropped overnight, Drake sings about a woman that he’s been pursuing for years and touches on the fact that she’s finally giving in to his love. The track, “Days in the East” seems to be an ode to Rihanna and their on-again, off-again love that just cannot be beat.
Not only does he reference Chris Brown and her attempts to make that relationship work, he also mentions recent occurrences where she is flying from city to city with him on tour. What is truly sweet about the hip-hop ballad is that Drake’s brand of heart-on-his-sleeve emo music is applied to someone the public knows and is watching closely to see whether she returns his affections. While this isn’t the first time the duo have exchanged sentiments in a song, only time will tell if Drake and Rihanna go ahead and make this thing official.
Some of the standout lyrics in the song are as follows:
Told you about giving him chances on chances on chances
He’s not holding you down, he’s holding you back right now
Take a flight here, pop a xan [Xanax] for the boy
Waking up in Amsterdam with the boy
Long flight home, another xan [Xanax] for your boy
You would probably fly out to Japan for the boy
You would probably kill another man for the boy
Before you said you’re mine, I was yours already
22, had the Bentley 4 door already
Even as a boy I was the boy already
So you know that mean the p-ssy galore already
Mention other girls, you get insecure already
That was in the past, I’ve matured already
F-ck them hoes, you got the award already
You go to Chanel and get rewards already
Remember one night I went to Erykah Badu house, she made tea for me
We talked about love and what life could really be for me
She said, “when that shit is real, you just know”
And I was thinking bout you, you already know
