Another Weeknd ode to debauchery and the party lifestyle, this synth-based slice of sultry R&B noir finds him waking up next to his latest sexual conquest. He also sings of the girl getting "richer on the pole", so we can assume she's a stripper who has caught his eye.
Got up, thank the Lord for the day Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name
The Weeknd unwillingness to commit to a relationship is demonstrated by the fact that he neglected to ask the stripper her name.
The song features additional ethereal vocals from Lana Del Rey, whose repeated cries of the word "paranoid," further illustrates how The Weeknd is wary of committing himself to any of the women he encounters.
Del Rey also guests on another Starboy track "Stargirl Interlude" having previously duetted with him on the Beauty Behind The Madness cut "Prisoner."
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
