Songfacts®:

  • Drake recounts here a relationship that started and ended during the summer. The girl was too fast in proclaiming her love for him and the Toronto MC didn't want to commit himself straight away. It appears that by July they were quarreling about their romance. Their breakup and the girl's subsequent unfollowing of him on social media left Drake heartbroken.
  • Chicago producer No I.D, and long-time Drake collaborator Noah "40" Shebib's beat is powered by sinister, pulsing synths in a manner that Drake has seldom dabbled with in the past.
