Songfacts®:

  • This torch song finds Drake talking to one of his pre-fame loves and acknowledging his impact on her. There is still plenty of affection between the pair and he insists that she can't replace him no matter what she tries: "May angels protect and heaven protect you," he croons.
  • Speaking with Google Music, Drake explained how he tries to get into the minds of women with his songs. Said the Toronto-born singer/rapper: "Women buy records, women fall in love with music and they listen to it when they fall asleep, and it moves them. I have a fascination in getting into the minds of women and truly letting them know how I think as a man – and letting them know how I view them as women. That should appeal to men as well."
