I’m conflicted. I just don’t know whether or not I like this song. You see, its such a big change from the hyped up “Started From the Bottom” track and I feel like I’m expecting this song to somehow turn into the previous song I feel in love with (Yes, I know that it will not). Then again, I kind of like the fact that Drake attempted to “sing” in this song and it wasn’t completely bad, so maybe I’ll learn to like it. I don’t know.
The beat is great, but the lyrics make absolutely no sense to me, and I feel that they should after listening to this song over and over again, trying to decipher whether or not I like this song.
P.S. The video makes no sense either. Just start watching at around 3:00.
Drake, I was wondering if you could tell me exactly where and what the bottom is to you? Because all the facts show that your bottom wasn’t that low at all. In fact, your bottom was so great, that this song is seemingly irrelevant in this case. Shoppers Drug Mart isn’t that bad, except for the fact that you were on Degrassi. And my mom and I fight all the time, that doesn’t mean that I am at the bottom, nor did I start from the bottom, so this part is also irrelevant. You grew up in Forest Hill, which is a much better neighbour hood than I grew up in. As a fellow Toronto Resident, I can vouch for this. Please Drake, define the bottom for me. Cause your bottom just seemed great!
Moving on, this is actually a very catchy song that has not left my head since I’ve heard it (despite my rant). I think his rapping is actually good in this song. I like Drake, I have both of his albums, and I have been pleasantly impressed. I am impressed with this song, I don’t hate it, but I do not think that the lyrics are relevant.
The whole Shoppers Drug Mart Scene with the 2 guys and the girl was hilarious though. I loved it!
