Before I say anything else, I want to thank everyone who sent good wishes to my grandma! (Context here.) She's on the mend and hopefully will be able to go home in a couple of days. Your support and positivity blows me away when I mention a trial or tribulation.
On a completely unrelated note, my gentleman friend has got me stuck on a Drake kick, because he plays the albums in his car. (The above picture is from Drake's Instagram, which I don't actually follow because I prefer my feed to be full of Etsy shops, but whatever.) X and I are both interested in narrative analysis, brand identity, blah blah blah intellectual wankery blah blah blah. In the same vein, we did a lot of fan-flailing over Yeezus.
Caveat: I don't appreciate lyrical misogyny and hearing slurs like "bitch" tossed around, but at this point I've accepted that I have to resign myself to being constantly degraded if I want to listen to any kind of mainstream music. It's a cross-genre problem. Rap and hip hop are no worse than, say, indie rock.
Anyway, in case you're interested in catchy sad-kid tunes, here are my favorite songs from Drake's latest album, Nothing Was The Same: "Furthest Thing", "Started From The Bottom", and "The Language".
