Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hello? Yeah, I just walked in
Yeah, I'm good, you still working?
Tonight, right now? Did I go out?
Yeah, I went out, I went
I went to a couple of clubs
I never went to bed, shit
Wine or water
You said something about a cold drink?
I don't know, I'm delirious

Cups of the Rosé
Bitches in my old phone
I should call one and go home
I've been in this club too long
The woman that I would try
Is happy with a good guy
But I've been drinkin' so much
That I'ma call her anyway, and say

Fuck that nigga that you love so bad
I know you still think about the times we had
I say fuck that nigga that you think you found
And since you picked up, I know he's not around, oh oh

(Are you drunk right now?)
I'm just sayin' you could do better
Tell me, have you heard that lately?
I'm just sayin' you could do better
And I'll start hatin' only if you make me

Uh, cups of that XO
All my people been here
I see all of her friends here
Guess she don't have the time to kick it no more
Flight's in the morning
What you doin' that's so important?
I've been drinkin' so much
That I'ma call you anyway, and say

Fuck that nigga that you love so bad
I know you still think about the times we had
I say fuck that nigga that you think you found
And since you picked up, I know he's not around, oh oh

(Are you drunk right now?)
I'm just sayin' you could do better
Tell me, have you heard that lately?
I'm just sayin' you could do better
And I'll start hatin' only if you make me

I think I'm addicted to naked pictures
And sitting talking 'bout bitches that we almost had
I don't think I'm conscious of makin' monsters
Outta the women I sponsor 'til it all goes bad
But, shit, it's all good
We threw a party, yeah, we threw a party
Bitches came over, yeah, we threw a party
I was just calling, 'cause they were just leavin'
Talk to me, please, don't have much to believe in
I need you right now, are you down to listen to me?
Too many drinks have been given to me
I got some women that's livin' off me
Paid for their flights and hotels, I'm ashamed
Bet that you know them, I won't say no names
After a while, girl, they all seem the same
I've had sex four times this week, I'll explain
Havin' a hard time adjustin' to fame
Sprite in that mixture
I've been talkin' crazy, girl, I'm lucky that you picked up
Lucky that you stayed on
I need someone to put this weight on
"Fuck, I'm sorry"

(Are you drunk right now?)
I'm just sayin' you could do better
Tell me, have you heard that lately?
I'm just sayin' you could do better
And I'll start hatin' only if you make me

You not gonna come?
I guess I'm 'bout to just, kick it here then

Just throw up while I hold your hair back
Her white friend said, "You niggas crazy"
I hope no one heard that, yeah
I hope no one heard that
'Cause if they did, we gon' be in some trouble, yeah




If they did we gon' be in some trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, oh, ohh

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Drake's "Marvin's Room" reveal a deep, personal, and intimate conversation he has with himself or someone else who he trusts. It starts with a phone call from Drake to a girl he's interested in, clearly drunk and overwhelmed by his surroundings. Both the conversation and the music create a tense and haunting atmosphere that is felt throughout the song, highlighted by the use of minor chords and deeply personal lyrics.


As the song continues, Drake is consumed with thoughts of another guy who he believes is not good enough for this girl. Throughout the lyrics, Drake is pressuring the girl to leave her current boyfriend for him, even though he recognizes that she is happy with her current partner. He wants her to know that he's always there and can offer her something better than what she has.


Then the song takes a turn when Drake admits to himself that he might be addicted to sex and harmful relationship patterns. He mentions the way that he objectifies women he has relationships with and recognizes that he is turning them into "monsters." He feels shame for his behavior and wants this girl to know him deeply enough to accept him with all his flaws. Overall, the song is about an unrequited love and the complicated relationships that lie beneath the surface.
