  • Lyrics
  • This song by Canadian rapper Drake was released on September 10, 2011 on his October's Very Own blog. It was helmed by Noah "40" Shebib, who in addition to being the main producer of Drake's Take Care album, has also worked on songs by Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, and Trey Songz.
  • The song finds Drake feeling out of place with all the fame and money his success has brought him and worried about the effect this has on his relationships. Drizzy reveals he hasn't forgotten about the girls that he knew before he became well known. "Tell me who did I leave behind?" he raps. "You think I'm so caught up in where I am right now/ But believe I remember it all."
  • This finishes with a snatch of a 1979 Bob Marley interview, in which the reggae legend explains how some people are "still searching for that truth."
  • The song is titled after a famous strip club in Drake's home city of Toronto, and we hear him calling out the real names of some of its working girls.
