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."
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
