Here Are the Lyrics to Drake’s ‘Mob Ties’

Watch how you speak on Drake‘s name, or else he will cut you off with his “Mob Ties,” as he sings about in the A-side track currently claiming the No. 28 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated July 21). Even though he wasn’t bred in the streets, the Scorpion rapper sure does have friends who were and can take care of his dirty business. And for those rappers who have had beef with Drake in the past, he clearly states he’s not about to shake hands and extend an olive branch of peace. “It’s too late for all that lovey-dovey shit/ I’m your brother shit, all that other shit,” he raps. Ayy, sick of these n*ggas (sick)Sick of these n*ggas (sick, sick)Hire some help (help), get rid of these n*ggas (skrr)Sick of this shit, move to the RitzTurned ...

Here Are the Lyrics to Twenty One Pilots’ ‘Nico and the Niners’

In a rebellious anthem following fictional character Clancy who lives in the imaginary Dema town, Twenty One Pilots sing about clinging to their rebel clothes and taking flight with the rest of the “banditos” in their latest single “Nico and the Niners.” Released ahead of schedule, the group’s impulse mirrors what drives Clancy, who cannot be contained by Dema — which is walled and ruled by nine bishops (“Dema don’t control, Dema don’t control”). What really traps this character — and those like Clancy — is depression, and this song tackles mental illness’ reign over people. The sway of the reggae beat — drums, guitar and maracas — assures listeners they’ll overcome their demons, but not everyone will be granted the same success (“We’ll win but not everyone wi...

Here Are the Lyrics to Twenty One Pilots’ ‘Jumpsuit’

Number one rule of being part of the banditos: Wear a jumpsuit with yellow stripes, as indicated by Twenty One Pilots’ new single “Jumpsuit.” The song follows Clancy, and listens can put themselves in his shoes (or clothes, rather) along his rebellious journey away from Dema, an imaginary walled city representing depression. Tyler Joseph petitions to be covered by the dark suit — he repeats “Jumpsuit, jumpsuit, cover me” throughout the chorus and verses — but his plea is for his security from the bishops who rule Dema and cannot see the banditos because of the yellow. The bishops represent the vocalist’s demons, and the protective yellow seen in the music video provides him a sliver of hope. The single, alongside “Nico and the Niners,” which was also released Wednesday (July 11...

Here Are the Lyrics to Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Simple’

Florida Georgia Line tell the endearing story of a simple love between two people in their latest hit song “Simple.” To explain the track in many words defeats the purpose of its message because the duo cannot conform to the complicated notions surrounding love. The trite lines “one, two, three” and “S-I-M-P-L-E” in the chorus epitomize the childish thrill of love’s bounds. The second verse brings listeners into a modern context by referencing Instagram and how it wraps us up in everyone’s business, but this country love song narrows down the focus to just two people. See the “Simple” lyrics below: The way your fingers fit in mineIt’s five plus five, not rocket scienceThis day in time, that’s hard to findIt’s tru...

Here Are the Lyrics to YG’s ‘Big Bank,’ Feat. 2 Chainz, Big Sean & Nicki Minaj

YG is set to drop his latest album Stay Dangerous soon, but the true danger behind the rapper is his capital rapped about in “Big Bank.” His latest single not only stunts about cars, houses and clothes, but also stars 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Nicki Minaj as guest features. He sets the bar high — or is the bar himself, rather — for a rich anthem filled with rich examples these four rappers are familiar with. Each artist flexes their own come-up in their respective verses, with Big Sean emphasizing that these luxuries were never guaranteed: “I’m a first-generation millionaire/ I broke the curse in my family not having shit.” My bitch drive a all white RangeCouldn’t hit it if you n*gga’s had aimLames can’t call and you a lameYou had it...

Here Are the Lyrics to Ariana Grande’s ‘The Light Is Coming,’ Feat. Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj raps about sipping unsweetened tea when Ariana Grande comes to the rescue with her latest single off Sweetener, “The Light Is Coming.” The dynamic duo of Grande and Minaj team up again after Grande was featured on the “Chun-Li” rapper’s second track from her own upcoming album Queen, “Bed.” The  singer digs into how someone can find positivity after troubling times — a similar theme to her previous Sweetener single, “No Tears Left to Cry,” which comments on Grande’s life after the Manchester bombing at her concert last May. The Pharrell-produced track features a repeated sample of a man’s argument during a 2009 town hall meeting with Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter (“You wouldn’t let anybody ...

Here Are the Lyrics to Kenny Chesney’s ‘Get Along’

Kenny Chesney spreads love in his feel-good country hit “Get Along.” His simple instructions in the chorus — “Paint a wall, learn to dance/ Call your mom, buy a boat/ Drink a beer, sing a song” — reflects that we have a long life to live, and it should be remembered by the good deeds we not only did for each other, but for ourselves. He later theorizes about death, singing, “The keys to heaven can’t be bought,” but Chesney reminds his listeners to recognize the signs of love that need to be spread in a divided country, without explicitly mentioning politics. Check out the lyrics below: Met a man wearin’ a t-shirt, says “Virginia is for lovers”Had a Bible in his left hand and a bottle in the otherHe said “all you&...

Here Are the Lyrics to 5 Seconds of Summer’s ‘Youngblood’

5 Seconds of Summer has been having the summer of their lives, with Youngblood snagging them their third consecutive No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. “Youngblood,” the swanky pop song sharing the album’s title, tugs listeners back and forth with a shaky relationship narrative. The track emulates the confusion of how someone could want their significant other out of their lives but need them at the same time. The struggle of discovering love and falling out of it and returning to its twisted hold on a rinse-and-repeat basis is something the band knew would resonate with fans, but the steady beat of the drums infiltrates the moody lyrics with positive energy.  Remember the words you told me, love me ’til the day I dieSurrender my everything ’cause you made me b...

Here Are the Lyrics to Drake’s ‘I’m Upset’

Drake lays his feelings out on his “I’m Upset” track, the second official single from his upcoming Scorpion studio album, set to be released June 29. He introduces the song with a soft piano melody before his booming “I’m upset” line, but the song of the same name has nothing to do with his beef with Pusha T that has seemingly been laid to rest. The “Nice for What” rapper shares a clap-back to the women who use him for his money. While Drake is expected to pay a girl’s checks and then some (“Every month, I’m supposed to pay her bills/ And get her what she want”), he increases how much money he has to name — not as a net-worth amount, but in regards to ransom. He first sings “Fifty thousand on my head, it...

Here Are the Lyrics to Juice WRLD’s ‘Lucid Dreams’

Juice WRLD joins the Billboard ranks of another Chicago-based rapper Kanye West with his No. 9 song “Lucid Dreams.” He delves into a failed relationship that he revisits in lucid dreams, but still wishes she is the one who doesn’t forget him. Born Jarad Higgins, the 19-year-old rapper fills his drug-infused narrative with death wishes (“You left me falling and landing inside my grave/ I know that you want me dead”) and croons over his heartbreak from an evil girl with a pretty face. See the lyrics below: No, no, no I still see your shadows in my roomCan’t take back the love that I gave youIt’s to the point where I love and I hate youAnd I cannot change you so I must replace you (oh)Easier said than doneI thought you were the oneListening to my hear...

Here Are the Lyrics to Lil Baby & Drake’s ‘Yes Indeed’

Drake and Lil Baby collab on the Wheezy-produced track “Yes Indeed,” which is spending its second week at No. 1 on the On-Demand Streaming Songs chart. Drake spits the first verse over a flute-laden track that celebrates both rappers’ clout vis-à-vis cars, clothes and cash. Lil Baby, whose first studio LP, Harder than Ever, is No. 5 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, speaks on his own name by wailing “Wah-wah-wah, bitch I’m Lil Baby.” He abbreviates “millions” to “M’s” in the chorus to shorthand the upper hand he’s gained in the rap game. Check out the full lyrics below: YeahWheezy out of here The dash, a digi’, the schedule busyMy head in a hoodie, my shorty a goodieMy cousins are crazy, my cousins like Bo...

Here Are the Lyrics to Cardi B’s ‘Drip,’ Feat. Migos

Cardi B‘s swaggering “Drip,” featuring Migos, hit the charts hard when Cardi’s Invasion of Privacy album dropped, peaking out at No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 so far. Below, you can learn the complete lyrics to “Drip” yourself.
