“Man this sh*t is not a love song, This a f*** a stripper on a mink rug song, This a f*** them boys forever, hold a grudge song…N***a, just because song.”
Let the celebration commence as Drake’s “Trophies” finds its way to the Internet. The Hit-Boy-produced cut features blaring horns reminiscent of a marching band letting loose after their team scores a TD and Drake, half-talking, half-yelling boasts about the spoils life brings once you reach the top. Big houses, hit records, trips to the strip club with suitcases of cash, et al. Think the vibe to Ghostface’s “We Made It” for the 2014 era.
True, we can’t all be winners but “Trophies” will make us feel like we’re a part of the right team. Cut the volume up loud, press play then go find a couch to stand on and jump around on.
