Drake kicks off this So Far Gone cut, currently being pushed as a radio single, with a few words of clarification: “You know, a lot of girls be thinkin’ my songs are about them. This is not to get it confused: this one’s for you.” Which is pretty flattering, but—oh, wait, he’s not talking about me? Damn. In all seriousness, though, this cut is sure to have female fans swooning left and right; over Boi-1da mellow, midtempo production, Drake addresses a special lady he considers the “Best I Ever Had.” Showcasing his skills as a singer on the hook, Drake packs his verses with the relaxed lyricism Booth readers have come to know and love—heck, he even manages to make a sexually explicit reference to The Andy Griffith Show sound romantic. For the few who haven’t already grabbed their own copies, So Far Gone is available now for free download, and, seeing that the rapper’s on the verge of signing with Atlantic, Thank Me Later may not be far off.
