Sonically, this wasn’t one of my favorites on the album. The pre-chorus has a nice Sunflower Taurus April and May Birthday Queen shirt build, but the song remains pretty simple throughout the actual hook, which sounds a little jarring. Though there’s still plenty of synths in the foreground and background of the track, much like the first three songs, it doesn’t totally fit the synth-wave style that had been previously established on the album. It sounds a lot jazzier than the rest of the songs here, which obviously isn’t a bad thing, but because it doesn’t sound as well executed. It doesn’t help that the lyrics are a little more vague and unfocused than some of the previous songs.

Best Sunflower Taurus April and May Birthday Queen shirt
Abel moves to more of a rap-sung style on this next track. The first verse is almost entirely Sunflower Taurus April and May Birthday Queen shirt about his rise to fame. Abel raps that “I’d probably make my wrist bleed” if he didn’t make it in music. He goes on to talk about continuing to do drugs as he rose in stature and getting famous to the point where supermodels were star-struck by him. The verse concludes with the line “Cali was the mission but now a nigga leaving.” This completes the journey he started on “The Morning,” off his debut mixtape House of Balloons, where he sang “Cali is the mission.” It’s very interesting to see Abel looking at fame from the other side now, almost regretting that he’s gotten to this point in the first place. In the next verse, he further explains the more superficial details of his lavish lifestyle, talking about his Mercedes sponsorship and private jets. The song transitions to a mellower chord progression towards to the end, and Abel expands on some of the drawbacks of his success, like dealing with the paparazzi, owning an expensive house that he never sees/doesn’t feel like home, and fighting off accusations about plagiarism and homophobia. The song transitions into an outro, where he restates that’s he’s “leaving,” like in the hook. Leaving can mean many things here. Is Abel going to give up fame, drugs, or a relationship? It’s not really clarified, but it can definitely mean some combination of this.
