Wiz Khalifa, ‘Remember You’ Feat. the Weeknd – Song Review
The track opens with almost two minutes of the Weeknd urging a groupie to make herself memorable after a gig. “I’m wiping sweat from my last show … I’m only here for one night, then I’ma be a memory … I might have to take your number when I’m through with ya / All I ask of you is try to earn my memory / Make me remember you like you remember me.”
When Wiz hops on the track, he brags about his fancy rolling papers and clothes, before dropping some rhymes that he may regret timing so closely to a possible hit-and-run charge: “I want some gin / You want some gin / I move it slow / I’m drivin’ fast / I hit the weed, you take the wheel / We lose control.”
‘Remember You’ is a slow, chill take on trying to wind down with the often frenetic pace of life on the road — which makes perfect sense when you consider the laidback rep of it’s star player, Khalifa. His subdued rap complements the Weeknd’s smooth vocals pretty perfectly, making for a relaxing, if slightly lyrically seedy, listen.
