Drizzy Mi Amor: Drake’s Most Romantic Lyrics

October 21, 2011  |

He’s not a rapper, he’s a lover! At 24 years of age, we wonder how Drake has racked up enough insight on the trials and tribulations of love to spin such thoughtful lyrics on dating and relationships. He’s wise beyond his years (or he’s lying about his age).

Either way, Drizzy has made a name for himself with his reflections on his own love life and we appreciate him repping for romance in the rap game. Not all his lyrics maybe so flowery, but many of them convey a young man who is vulnerable, sensitive and very flattering of the ladies in his life.

The Young Money star is due to release his second major-studio album in early November and in honor of the rap romeo, we surveyed some of his most flattering, cutest, romantic lyrics.


I’ve always wondered why you bothered putting make up on
you dont need it
Even tho I always tell you that your beautiful
I repeat cuz I dont want no singer and I don’t want no model I dont want no fashion designer or nothing
I jus want your love
Telling you thats more than enuff 4 me

From “Come Real” (2009)



The girl or the world, you see someone gotta lose
I thought I could have it all, do I really gotta choose
What good is all the cash if it doesn’t buy time
And what good is bein’ famous if I’m never on your mind

Sooner Than Later, So Far Gone mixtape


been waitin for so long to get you all alone
Now I finally got you right here
So baby I’m a lock my door and disconnect my phone
Cause I wanna make one thing clear
I want you on top
So let ya hair down
I took the night off for you
Girl I’m gonna turn the lights off
But keep ya heels on
They’re fittin’ for what we’re about to do

A Night Off, So Far Gone mixtape

Shooting stars all around her, fire, comets
I could bring her through and shut them down, Onyx
no, you’re not imagining, they’re looking at you long stares
even though she’s standing out she looks like she belongs here
you feel the hours pass, until you find somethin’
I feel like when she moves – the time doesn’t

Shut It Down, from Thank Me Later


R.I.P. to the girl you used to see
Her days are over. Baby she’s over
I’ve decided to give you all of me
Baby come closer, baby come closer
I’m ready for ya
Kill ‘em all, switch it up
Put it on, zip it up
Let my perfume, soak in in your sweater
You say you’ll be here soon, sooner the better

I’m Ready For You, Young Sweet Jones 2 mixtape

too many times I’ve been wrong
I guess being right takes too long
I’m done waiting, theres nothing left to do
but give all I have to you

Find your love, Thank Me Later

Do it girl, I’ll be the king to your Queen Latifah
I love your A$$ like Milhouse loved Lisa
I love your A$$ like the Ninja Turtles love pizza
Ironically enough, you something I want a piece of, you got it girl

Good Girls Go Bad, Off the Game’s RED album

I’ve always liked my women book and street smart
long as they got a little class like half days
and the confidence to overlook my past ways
time heals all, and heels hurt to walk in
but they go with the clutch that you carry your lip gloss in
and look I really think that nobody does it better
I love the way you put it together

Fancy, from Thank Me Later


Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin’ with no make-up on
That’s when you’re the prettiest, I hope that you don’t take it wrong
You don’t even trip when friends say you ain’t bringin’ Drake along
You know that I’m working, I’ll be there soon as I make it home

Gotta throw in that wonderful chorus:

Baby, you my everything, you all I ever wanted
We can do it real big, bigger than you ever done it
You be up on everything, other [chicks] ain’t never on it
I want this forever, I swear I can spend whatever on it

Best I Ever Had, So Far Gone/Thank Me Later
