He released a song today, "Marvin's Room." I strongly dislike it for multiple reasons. He's "singing" for the majority of the song, and the lyrics/story are horrible to me. I seem to be the only one, on Twitter I've seen such comments as "Best song of 2011" and "This is real music." -- to each his/her own I suppose.
The gist of the story is Drake is drunk, so he's calling some girl that he knows is with a good man and making a play for her. Some lyrics:
Cups of the Rose
Bitches in my old phone
I should call one and go home
I’ve been in this club too long
The woman that I would try
Is happy with a good guy
But I’ve been drinking so much
That I’ma call her anyway and say
“F-ck that nigga that you love so bad
I know you still think about the times we had”
I say “f-ck that nigga that you think you found
And since you picked up I know he’s not around”
:-\ I dunno. I guess as a happily married woman I'm not really feeling the "get drunk and break up someone's relationship" tone of this. I'm confused as to who is out there LOVING this song? Is it people interested in a person already in a relationship? Are those the people that have it on repeate? What is it that has everyone loving this so much that it's trending on twitter?
This plays into a greater issue which is disrepect for relationships. Is no one's relationship sacred if there is someone out there who think they might be better? I'm currently going through the whole series of "The L Word" and although I'm only through about 1 and a quarter seasons, but I've noticed a trend of "I think I'm better than her current girlfriend so I'm just gonna go in for the kill." I see this on TV all the time. Is there no relationship off limits?
