Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Drake & Young Thug's song Ice Melts talk about the need for love and satisfaction in a relationship. The song starts with Young Thug ad-libbing over a catchy beat, setting the tone for the rest of the song. The chorus is where the main message of the song is conveyed, with the phrase "Feelin' rough, rough/ Baby, I'm needin' somethin', somethin'/ I wan' beat it up with somethin' somethin'" suggesting physical intimacy as a means of finding satisfaction. However, the following line "You're a diamond out the rough or somethin' somethin'" shows that the need for love goes beyond physical needs.


Throughout the rest of the song, the lyrics become more elaborate, suggesting the interruptions of past relationships and the need for patience in current relationships, "I want you to myself/ But I know you just left someone else/ I know you did, he did a number on you/ That must be why you move so icy." The verses paint a picture of someone who has been hurt before and is hesitant to give themselves fully to someone else, with the singers urging them to "give love to someone," even if it means giving up what they think they need.


Overall, the lyrics to Ice Melts highlight the need for communication, understanding, and patience in relationships, as well as the importance of physical intimacy and the delicate balance between love and desire.
