Over

“Over” was the lead single from Drake’s debut album, the platinum-certified Thank Me Later. The song, built upon a swelling sample of swirling guitars and strings, found the Canadian teen actor turned hip-hop star rapping about how dramatically success has changed his life, along with the pressures and temptations of fame, including women and partying (a frequent topic for the rapper). “You’re wondering if I’m a raging alcoholic?” he asked Rolling Stone, referring to the lyrics of “Over.” “I think it’s about the blur of life and work. I live for the nights when we just have fun, and wake up in the morning and say, ‘What just happened?’”
