Drake, ‘Trust Issues’ – Song Review
"Did my own little thing using some other thing I did. You know," the Canadian rapper writes on his blog to introduce the song.
That "other thing" is 'I'm On One,' a DJ Khaled song that features vocals from Drake. 'Trust Issues' opens with a slowed-down verse from 'I'm On One' and continues with a chilled-out beat and lyrics about being unable to trust the women in his life.
"You know what I'm sippin' / I'll teach you how to mix it / But you're the only one, cause I don't trust these bitches," Drake sings. "You can look me in my eyes and see I ain't myself / Cause if y'all what I created, then I hate myself."
These days, it seems that Drake is trying to make every song slower than the previous one. 'Trust Issues' has a nice vibe but, coming on the heels of 'Marvin's Room' and 'Dreams Money Can Buy,' it feels like more of the same.
'Trust Issues' isn't as impressive as the other two since it was built around the pre-existing Khaled track. It's unlikely Drake would want all three similar songs to appear on the same record, but we'll find out for sure when 'Take Care' drops on Oct. 24.
