Album: More Life (2017)
Charted: 10 38
  • According to Urban Dictionary, "blem" is an English slang word meaning high off marijuana. Drake is intoxicated on this song, meaning he has no filter and he warns the girl that he's addressing that he's going to speak bluntly.

    I need you to stop runnin' back to your ex, he's a wasteman
    I wanna know, how come we can never splash and stay friends?
    I'm blem for real, I might just say how I feel


    Drake is being fully sincere as he offers up his feelings for this girl who won't stop running to her ex.
  • The song has a Caribbean dancehall feel. The beat was created by T-Minus, a Canadian producer from Ajax, Ontario, who is signed to Drake's OVO Sound. His other credits with Drake include "Make Me Proud" "The Motto" and "HYFR."
  • The brief "Together Forever" vocal in the outro is sung by Lionel Richie. An uncredited Lil Wayne then jumps in to say a few words.
