Words matter. “Mama told me I’m her brightest star!” Even mumble rappers talk on the phone.
Men Lie, Women Lie
Sometimes the only one who’s really there for your best interests is your mama. This song is about a prisoner calling his mother, and begging her for help. “Mama, just get back at me this last time!”
Long Days, Longer Nights
According to genius.com, Mac Miller said that “Missed Calls” is all about “the struggle” of having a relationship as a performer. Mac Miller himself said that it’s about communication. Have you ever had a talk like the one depicted with these exasperated lyrics? “Tell you I ain’t comin’ home tonight!”
Cardi B is referencing real-life violence with her historical lyrics, You gon’ turn me into Left Eye!” To make matters worse, this isn’t Cardi B’s only song about infidelity. Texts are a red flag in this Cardi B bop.
See You Later On

Leave Me ‘Lone
