  • Lyrics
  • This slow-moving ballad was one of three Drake tracks released because of hackers on October 25, 2014 along with "Heat of the Moment" and "6 God." The song had leaked a week earlier.
  • The Boi-1da & Jordan Evans produced cut finds Drake taunting a former lover over a sample of the Jodeci ballad "My Heart Belongs to You."

    I'm up right now, and you suck right now, yeah
    You thought the little effort that you put in was enough, girl
    How 'bout now? Yeah
    Girl, how 'bout now, how 'bout now, girl?
    What about now, girl, how 'bout now?

    Drake was infatuated with the girl before he became well-known, even going to church with her despite not being a Christian. She didn't appreciate Drake's efforts then but is probably regretting her lack of enthusiasm now he's rich and famous.
  • The song was later included on the physical release of Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late album. (It did not feature on the mixtape version).
