My Side Song Lyrics Meaning - Drake


Read Drake - My Side Lyrics Song Meaning Explained.

Album: Care Package
Release Date: August 2, 2019
Record Label: OVO, Republic Records
Songwriter: Aubrey Graham, Shebib, Noel Cadastre
Producer: 40, Cadastre, Boi-1da

Boi-1da & Drake are known for making smash hits that consequently produce a lot of income. As soon as the beat kicks in, Drizzy knows the track is destined for great things. The “dub” effect gives the beat a hectic-fast feel of time passing by. This may symbolise the rapid growth of Drake’s career and bank account.

A reference to Drake’s song “Too Much” off of his third album, Nothing Was the Same. Both detail the hectic rush of living a fast-paced life. Drake questions his love interest’s decision not to visit him at the places in which he stays – either his safe house in Calabasas, or his condo in Toronto – choosing instead to hide out in her condo in New York. It is rumored that Drake is referring to Rihanna. On the first single off PND’s upcoming album Drake talks again on the status of his relationship with the girl.

Drake and his girl are over the “honeymoon phase.” They’re arguing way more than they used to and don’t listen to each other instead of acting like they’re in a mature, adult relationship. The “aw man’s” at the end of the verse may symbolize the guilt over hurting her sinking in. This connects how he takes advantage of the distance between the two. Is this turning out to be a make up song?

I saw potential in you from the go, you know that I did
I don’t know if you know, but I know who you are
You could be big as Madonna
Just get in the car and then let’s touch the road
– Drake on “Madonna”

As Drake has previously mentioned, he has the ability to turn one of his girls into a superstar solely because of all the publicity he gets.

Drake doesn’t necessarily get to know all of his girls for their true selves, so if he slips up and gets caught by the media hanging out with a girl, he may unintentionally create a monster. Maybe some of the girls end up abusing the power, or maybe some of them just aren’t ready for it. Publicity is a tough thing to handle and it can even go so far as to destroy a person.

There are a rare few times when Drake’s girl is bigger than him in terms of media. This implies that she lives a similar, high-class lifestyle to his. This could also suggest she gets conceited, even more so than Drake and his semi-large ego, Drake Jr.

He is most likely referring to the former, which goes to show just how great a power-couple they could be. This could add to the conspiracy that the mystery girl this song was made for is Rihanna…
