"Headlines" is a classic anthem, one for our times. One for the times of grand failures and grand successes, one in which Drake admits "yeah, I did this shit, and what of it?" Drake usually sucks live, at least from what I've seen but that's not the case here. Maybe we've actually watched him grow as a performer? Thank you, Drake. I'm thanking you right fucking now.
I might be too strung out on compliments, overdosed on confidence
Started not to give a fuck and stopped fearing the consequence
Drinking every night because we drink to my accomplishments
Faded way too long, I'm floatin' in and out of consciousness
And they sayin' I'm back, I agree with that
I just take my time with all this shit, I still believe in that
I had someone tell me I fell off, ooh I needed that
Drake's made an anthem for trying harder, the "I'm sorry I don't want to be a slacker" jam for all of us who get up too early, work too late, and try too fucking hard.
