Songfacts®:

  • A month after Rick Ross assisted Drake on "Money in the Grave," Drizzy returned the favor to the MMG boss. During this piano-driven track, the lyricists connect over their love for some of the finest things in life.

    Ross and Drake have paired up on over a dozen precious occasions; their long list of collaborations include "Aston Martin Music" and "Lord Knows."
  • The chorus of this song shares a similar theme to "Money in the Grave." Both cuts find Drake talking about death. On "Money In The Grave," he predicts people will try to feed off his successes after he passes away; on "Gold Roses," the Toronto MC reflects on how the public will truly show him love only when he's in the grave.
  • Drake and Ross each deliver a braggadocio verse about money; while Drake flexes about sharing his wealth with those around him such as building schools and feeding the homeless, Ross brags about his luxurious lifestyle.
