Drake is overly concerned with an old girlfriend and how they're "wearing less and going out more" instead of longing for a flickering romance with the 6 God.

This gorgeously aching song with a Super Mario Nintendo beat stripped down to its husk is an intimate contemplation of Drake’s affinity for the women of his past. Surrounded by promiscuity that coincides with fame, Drizzy longs for the days when women appreciated his genuine personality as an average Canadian man. This woman in particular was likely a high school sweetheart or a playground crush that used to kick it with Drizzy.“These days, all I do is / Wonder if you’re bendin’ over backwards for someone else / Wonder if you’re rolling up a Backwoods for someone else.” The 6 God is dealing with some separation issues and is obsessing over a woman who refuses to throw herself at him. “Cause ever since I left the city, you / Started wearing less and goin’ out more / Glasses of champagne out on the dance floor / Hangin’ with some girls I’ve never seen before.”At this point, he is stalking her Instagram profile, shocked and dismayed that she has turned into the gold-diggers that he wishes to forego in order to return to a more innocent past with a woman who cherishes his softer side. Apparently,Drake acknowledges that her innocence has dissipated as “She’s doing things I taught you, getting’ nasty for someone else.” His frustration is apparent in the chorus, “You used to call me on my cell phone / Late night when you need my love.” Accustomed to being the one receiving the booty call and the relative ease of obtaining intercourse, Drake is now entrapped in an emotional labyrinth as he struggles to pursue a women who has played hard to get since “he left the city.” Perhaps, she saw the music video that accompanied this song and determined his questionable dance moves were indicative of his performance as a lover, and decided to pass on a sexual relationship with the famous rapper. This song symbolizes the inherent contradiction of a man who’s rise to fame resulted in less, rather than more woman of his desire.
