R.I.P. to the girl you used to see
Her days are over
Baby she’s over
I’ve decided to give you all of me
Baby come closer baby come closer
I’m ready for ya

Kill em all, switch it up
Put it on, zip it up
Let my perfume, soak in in your sweater
You say you’ll be here soon, sooner the better
No option for her, you sayin no
I run this game, just play your role
Follow my lead, whatchu waitin fo
Thought it over and decided tonight is the night
(Background voice)

Yeah I hear you talkin, don’t know who you tryin to flatter
Got my mind made up
I-I-I’m ready for ya
I’m in control, but with you bein’ a man
You don’t seem to understand that
I-I-I’m ready for ya
I-I-I’m ready for ya
I-I-I’m ready for ya
So keep thinkin you the man
Cause it’s all part of my plan
I-I-I’m ready for ya

Nothin on, I strut around
I do it big, I shut it down
I wonder if you’ll be able to handle me
Mental picture, no cameras please
(Background voice)


red lipstick on the wine glass
cameras in my mind, flash
black lingerie white diamonds, what a contrast,
i know you get impatient as the time pass,
you say you want it fast, define fast
cause i can speed it up, and make it last
and i could audition for this, and i could be part of the cast
and i could produce for your future, i could co-direct your past,
and make damn sure you never forget it,
commited, im ready, im with it
still here like a statue,
pink champagne, green ink in your tattoos,
you say you got baggage, well im packed too,
plus i got a sex pistol pointed right at you “BAM”
the baddest women ever in the heart of south,
proven over and over again thats why im hard to doubt
plus im young money till the death, i took the carter out
I’m more than ready too, hope of something that you thought about

    General CommentDrake wrote this song for a female artist. He just recorded his own version of it as a reference for how the female artist should sing it.

    General CommentAfter obeygiant618 said that he wrote it for a female artist i thought that might be true, but when he's rapping toward the end he says, "you say you got baggage, well i'm packed too. plus i got a sex pistol pointed right at you"..sex pistol meaning dick and hopefully whoever he wrote this for she didnt have a dick so..i dunno.. id like to think its from a girl's perspective..i love the "R-I-P to the girl you used to see, her days are over, baby she's over/ ive decided to give you all of me, baby closer, baby closer/ im ready for you"..meaning that that girl that she used to be is gone and now she's someone new..what do yall think?

    General CommentChant16 has a point with the sex pistol thing. I'm pretty sure that the last verse is for him though, especially since 1. he's rapping, and 2. he mentions young money. The rest of it is definitely for a girl.

    General CommentHey Guys, this song is from two perspectives, this new girl that drake is interested in and Drake. The first part is coming from the girl. When she says "RIP to the girl you used to see, her days are over, baby she's over/..." she is telling drake that i'm going to make you forget about your ex. The main reason why I thought that line meant that is because when drake says, " you say you got baggage, well i'm packed too." Baggage often refers to ex's.
    Let me know if that make sense.

    General CommentThe last part when he starts to rap would be where he comes in during the song hence why he talks about a sex pistol, and everything before that would be the girl singing.

    General CommentOk, This is just a thought but just think about it. What if this song is about him being in a relationship where the girl was more of the man in the relationship than he was, with one verse given from the females perspective? Just read the lyrics with that idea in mind.

    General Comment The song is about Drake plotting vengeance on someone that has done him wrong. He says “baby come closer” and is possibly referring to an ex girlfriend that probably cheated on him or betrayed him. Whoever it is, Drake is plotting his revenge and is manipulating them into thinking they’re “the man” cause it’s “all part of the plan.”

    I’m suprised no one has figured this out! It’s 2018 too btw
