12 Drake 'Views' Lyrics That Make You Want To Text Your Ex
It's official, I'm now a complete and utter emotional wreck. If, like me, you're a little bit overly sensitive and have had Views , the latest album by Drake playing on repeat in the background of your workday, then you too may have been slowly obliterated by the emotional firecrackers of lyrics that Drizzy has laced so many of his songs with. Like many men who have had a big influence in my life, me and Drake haven't always seen eye to eye, and his obsession with good girls and with judging women who might not meet his moral expectations (I'm still totally sore about those "Hotline Bling" lyrics), have truly had a habit of rubbing me up the wrong way. But I'm totally hearing him pouring his little heart out in the most emotional lyrics of Views and I'm loving it.
I don't know about you, but something about hearing those fresh lyrical wounds of a love gone wrong leaping from Views just makes me want to spend the evening offering forgiveness to exes, giving back stolen t-shirts to them and catching up with the one (or the ones) who got away. If these lyrics don't pummel you directly in the soft vortex of your emotional core then I feel bad for you, lady. Call a coroner because you could well be dead inside.

Oof, that was therapeutic. I don't know about you but Drake has definitely helped me to rip the band-aids from several years worth of hurt right there. Keep it emotional, Drizzy.
