At just under three minutes, "Liability" is a short but powerful statement. With only Lorde's vocals and a piano forming the entire track, she lays it bare on the chorus. "So they pull back, make other plans/ I understand, I'm a liability/ Get you wild, make you leave/ I'm a little much for ev- / Everyone," she sings, playing with the last word.
On the second verse, she knows that everything she does to attract romance or any kind of relationship ends poorly because she can't keep the facade up for long. "The truth is I am a toy that people enjoy/ 'Til all of the tricks don't work anymore/ And then they are bored of me," she sings. Check it outhere.
On the other, Kanye's outbursts make it very hard. The pair serve as both peers and foils to one another: Drake's focused, organized ascent to the top versus Kanye West's peaks and valleys of creative, personal and public turmoil.
Given the context, it's sort of funny that Drake wore a fan-made Kanye mask during a recent show in Copenhagen, Denmark Tuesday night. The "Hotline Bling" rapper accepted the gift and made a quick joke about his new accessory.
"I got the Yeezy mask now," Drake said in a fan video. "Ya'll can't f— with me tonight, now." Check it outhere.

"Had Enough" was inspired by a veteran friend whose tank was hit by an IED. She began writing songs as a way of therapy. She said, "Since beginning to write songs, my nightmares are not what they used to be." She is a hero and she inspired this song.
This song is about leaving. I don't need to be with someone to be happy, but here I am, living with someone, getting in fights, wasting my time, losing sleep, growing nothing.
"And I kicked against the pricks/ just to fall upon a rose/ I watched her bloom before me and I watched her close"
