Music News: What’s the story behind “I Get Lonely Too”…Drake Explains?!


Drake showed a softer side this week with the release of “I Get Lonely Too,” the first offering from his R&B mixtape ‘It’s Never Enough,’ on which he pays homage to TLC’s 1999 track “FanMail.” Drizzy told Rap-Up.com why he chose to cover the “Crazy, Sexy, Cool” trio.

According to the Young Money rapper, it wasn’t planned—inspiration unexpectedly struck while he was cruising around in Miami. “I was in the car and I had the iPod on shuffle, and I heard T-Boz’s voice come on and I was like, damn, I never noticed the lyrics to this song and how beautiful they were because it was an intro,” he revealed at the “So Kodak” launch event in New York City on Tuesday night.

Once his ears perked up, Drizzy knew it was the perfect way to introduce his melodic collection of tracks. “When I heard it, I was like, man, me and [producer Noah “40” Shebib] could do something with this, and TLC used this as the intro on their album, so I used it as the intro on my mixtape.”

Fans can get a taste of how ‘It’s Never Enough’, due later this year, is taking shape by vibing out to the seductive jam. “It’s track one and it’s a great song,” expressed Drake. “I love the words in it and I love how 40 flipped the beat, so I just decided to put it out and give people an idea of the direction the mixtape was going.”

According to Drake, witnessing friends’ relationships reminds him of what is missing from his life.

“I’m envious of friends of mine that have great committed relationships,” he said in an interview. “When people call home to check on their girl or they say, ‘I’m not going to go out tonight. I’m just going to spend the night with my girl.’ That hits me, man. I just don’t have that…And also, I’m not going to be the one to drag my own name through the dirt, so to be with a different woman every night is a terrible decision…If I can find a connection with somebody that can understand what goes on in this life — and when I say somebody who understands, I don’t mean a girl that understands that I’m going to be with other girls; I mean just a girl that’s supportive and makes it easy to exist and laugh. Laughing is a big thing. Conversation’s got to flow. We got to laugh at the same things.”

Drake – “I Get Lonely Too” Lyrics

[Drake – Verse 1]
Waited on you for so long
Too many days since January
I’m still sitting here alone
We shoulda did this already
said I gotta email today
kinda thought that you, forgot about me
but I wanna hit you back too say
just like you, I get lonely…

[Chorus]
Baby,
I could really get to know you
take my time and show you
don’t tell anybody what we do
when I get lonely

Take Me,
to another place where I’ll be
face to face, just you and me
with no rules, just like you
I get lonely too ooh ooh
hoo ooh hoh, hoo ooh hoh
just like you
I get lonely too ooh ooh
hoo ooh hoh
just like you
I get lonely

[Drake – Verse 2]
Waiting for us too get it on
ain’t gotta love to cost any
hope it ain’t like that for long
I’ll be your friend if you let me
don’t wanna come off strong
cuz too many people wanna get me
but you know I do what I gotta do
just like you, I get lonely yoo

[Chorus]
Baby,
I could really get to know you
