Summertime is upon us and you know what that means: Uncomfortably burnt legs as you scrape your jorts up over your thighs, dealing with awkward nose sweat when you talk to that hot guy or gal at the pool, and sand settling in to every uncomfortable crevice of your body. But there is one thing you have to look forward to for sure this summer — Drake, and lots of him. Drake is not only the king of Canada but also the king of summer, and here are 14 Drake lyrics to get you ready for summer.
Granted, not all of these are explicitly referring to summer, per se, but with an open mind, you can follow me on this journey of loosely interpreted lyrics as I try to paint a Drake-inspired picture of what your summer could look like.
So get your margaritas ready, spray on some sunscreen, and grab your most portable device through which to play the glorious melodies of Sir Aubrey Graham as you prepare to officially launch the most perfect summer ever. Sit back, relax by the pool, and partake in these wonderful Drake lyrics that will jumpstart your summer. I guarantee that, with Drake's help, you won't be carrying along any woes if you run through the 6 this summer.
"I'm Game of Thrones with it momma/I'm Home Alone with it momma" - "You & the 6"
When your mom asks how you're spending your vacation time... and you are in bed with takeout and Netflix.
"Runnin' through the 6 with my woes/Countin' money you know how it goes" - "Know Yourself"
Your reaction as you rapidly watch your bank account deplete over your summer vacation.
"Summer's mine/I swear I said about a hundred times, I'ma need it back" - "Good Ones Go (Interlude)"
Dibs on summer.
"I just gave out Grammys on my Instagram" - "Blessed"
This is the perfect line to drop when you know your Instagram game is on fleek after some tastefully photographed cocktails in mason jars, and expertly-pedicured toes wiggling in the sand.
"She on some up at 9AM already cookin' in the kitchen s**t" - "Company"
This is what you say about your one weird friend who wakes up awkwardly early on Sunday morning after a long night out and makes breakfast for everybody the
"You should give it up for me/Look at how I'm placing all my napkins and my cutlery" - "Fireworks"
When you're patting yourself on the back for pulling off a perfectly-executed, Pinterest-worthy picnic brunch.
"Yeah, shout goes out to Nike, checks all over me/ I need a FuelBand just to see how long the run has been" - "10 Bands"
Your Pinterest fitspo boards have spilled over into real life. You are bedecked in Nike checks, jogging through the park like a pro as you hum these lines and bask in the perfection of your neon workout ensemble.
"I cook the beef well done on the double with cheese" - "6PM in New York"
You somehow get stuck on grill duty at your friend's barbecue. You are a bit toasty about having to work the grill. You spit this lyric any time anyone gets (literally) all up in your grill, trying to be too specific with your order. You'll eat what I give you, bro.
"Floatin' all through the city with the windows down/Puttin' on like I used to" - "Used To"
The video says it all.
"I'm here for a good time, not a long time, you know I/I haven't had a good time in a long time, you know I/I'm way up, I feel blessed" - "Blessed"
This is your go-to response when you run into the people staying next door to your vacation rental at the beach. #blessed
"...Weekend in Miami trying to study by the pool/Couple things due but you always get it done" - "Make Me Proud"
Summer classes will be a breeze, they said. They won't require much work at all, they said.
"F**k what they talkin' about on your timeline/That's cuttin' all into my time with you" - "Jungle"
What your SO says to comfort you when you have a mental breakdown after being inundated with engagements and wedding posts on your timeline. Damn you, wedding season!
"Yeah, that's about it/ This s**t sounds like what being rich feels like/For real" - "My Side"
This line encompasses the badass feeling of luxury you get when you pop open a fresh bottle of champs on a toasty Summer afternoon.
"Damn, is it the Fall?/Time for me to revisit the past, there's women to call." - "HYFR"
You whisper this under your breath as you bid adieu to summertime. Goodbye, old friend. Goodbye.
