Song of the Day #3,071: ‘Fake Love’ – Drake

drakeIt’s back-to-back Drake, this time as the lead artist following his supporting turn on the stinker ‘Used to This.’

Drake’s ‘Fake Love’ sits at #17 following Sia’s ‘Cheap Thrills’ at #15 and Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling!’ (Song of the Summer?) still hanging on at #16.

I’m not a Drake fan. My daughter is into his latest album but everything I’ve heard is monotonous and silly. I assume this track is from that album so my hopes aren’t high.

Unfortunately, this song isn’t on YouTube yet, though dozens of “fans” have uploaded fake versions, some expertly disguised as actual Drake videos. I did find a website that (I think) has a stream of the actual song. It’s certainly as mediocre as the other Drake songs I’ve heard, so it’s probably legit.

[Hook]
I’ve been down so long, it look like up to me
They look up to me
I got fake people showin’ fake love to me
Straight up to my face, straight up to my face
I’ve been down so long, it look like up to me
They look up to me
I got fake people showin’ fake love to me
Straight up to my face, straight up to my face

[Verse 1]
Somethin’ ain’t right when we talkin’
Somethin’ ain’t right when we talkin’
Look like you hidin’ your problems
Really you never was solid
No, you can’t son me
You won’t never get to run me
Just when shit look out of reach
I reach back like one, three
Like one, three, yeah

[Pre-Hook]
That’s when they smile in my face
Whole time they wanna take my place
Whole time they wanna take my place
Whole time they wanna take my place
Yeah, I know they wanna take my place
I can tell that love is fake
I don’t trust a word you say
How you wanna clique up after your mistakes?
Look you in the face, and it’s just not the same

[Hook]
I’ve been down so long, it look like up to me
They look up to me
I got fake people showin’ fake love to me
Straight up to my face, straight up to my face
I’ve been down so long, it look like up to me
They look up to me
I got fake people showin’ fake love to me
Straight up to my face, straight up to my face

[Verse 2]
Yeah, straight up to my face, tryna play it safe
Vibe switch like night and day
I can see it, like, right away
I came up, you changed up
I caught that whole play
Since, things never been the same

[Pre-Hook]
That’s when they smile in my face
Whole time they wanna take my place
Whole time they wanna take my place
Whole time they wanna take my place
Yeah, I know they wanna take my place
I can tell that love is fake (I can tell that love is fake)
I don’t trust a word you say (I don’t trust a word)
How you wanna clique up after your mistakes?
(That’s just what I heard)
Look you in the face, and it’s just not the same

[Hook]
I’ve been down so long, it look like up to me
They look up to me
I got fake people showin’ fake love to me
Straight up to my face, straight up to my face
I’ve been down so long, it look like up to me
They look up to me
I got fake people showin’ fake love to me
Straight up to my face, straight up to my face

[Outro]
Skrrt (skrrt, skrrt)

    What would Drake do without autotune? The world may never know.
