Songs 4 Women

Album: Nostalga, Ultra (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Frank Ocean has expressed his admiration for Drake in interviews, and this song finds him talking about his girl listening to the Canadian rapper plus Trey Songz. However he explained to Complex magazine that the lyric, "was more in sarcasm, and in jest, than it was in seriousness." He explained: "I don't think any person in a serious relationship is threatened by the person on the radio. It's just a cool detail. It's not like you're going to go off on your girl because she's listening to whoever. That doesn't make any sense. That's some other s--t. Like, you'll f--k with your girl. You might poke fun at her like, 'You know I be recording and s--t, but you don't listen to my s--t like that.' It's funny. The s--t doesn't make it to a serious point, ever."
