What does "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" by ZAYN and Taylor Swift mean?

Taylor Swift and ZAYN just dropped their new duet "I Don't Wanna Live Forever." The song's going to be part of the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, and it's intense. The song's musical aspect is smooth and rich and interesting. The lyrics, on the other hand, are very simple and straightforward--they're about a relationship that didn't work out the first time around.

What does "True Colors" by The Weeknd mean?

"True Colors" is one of my favorite tracks from The Weeknd's album Starboy because it's one of the few that highlights and focuses on a true emotional maturity on the part of The Weeknd. The song is about a lover who has a dark past that The Weeknd feels he needs to hear about from her rather than from someone else. He asks her to explain and does so in an understanding, kind, and empathetic way.

What does "Stargirl Interlude" by The Weeknd ft. Lana Del Rey mean?

"Stargirl Interlude" by The Weeknd is the shortest song from the Starboy album and also one of the most artistically creative ones. While other songs from the record come across as braggadocios or shallow, "Stargirl Interlude" somewhat artistically describes a sexual encounter. The song provides some pivotal but not graphic details and further develops the relationship between The Weeknd and the woman that the Starboy album could be about.

What does "Reminder" by The Weeknd mean?

"Reminder" has to be the most unique on The Weeknd's record Starboy. And that's just lyrically. The music side of the song is similar to other tracks, but while most of the other songs on the record focus on sex or self-definition based on fame, "Reminder" focuses on self-definition in relation to the music industry. It takes a slightly different tact than other songs and certainly contains quite a bit of information that we can use to learn about The Weeknd and his character Starboy.

What does "Six Feet Under" by The Weeknd mean?

And we continue marching through Starboy by The Weeknd. It's my goal to explain the whole thing, and we'll see if that happens, but we're going to try. In the meantime, "Six Feet Under" is one of the more interesting songs on the Starboy album if you consider that it's one of the only songs that it isn't about him at all. Most of the other songs on the album, The Weeknd uses first person pronouns like "I" or "me." But in "Six Feet Under," he keeps purely to describing a character or person he has in mind.

What does "I Feel It Coming" by The Weeknd means?

I've been waiting for The Weeknd to release new singles from his upcoming Starboy album! He's an excellent musician, and I think when I first started explaining songs, he impressed me because he was proof that a pop artist could write about deeper things  while still being incredibly "poppy." The Weeknd proves it in songs like "Can't Feel My Face," "The Hills," and "Starboy."

What does "Dangerously" by Charlie Puth mean?

Charlie Puth just released his music video for "Dangerously," and it's going crazy very quickly. I've been a fan of Charlie Puth ever since I heard that the industry chose him to sing in "See You Again" because he'd experienced a similar tragedy to the one the song is about. I felt bad for him and thought it sounded kind of like they were using his pain to make money, but it really was a beautiful song, and he was okay with it, so I figured it was probably fine. That being said, Charlie Puth's voice is amazing and no less amazing in "Dangerously."

What does "Fake Love" by Drake mean?

So, I hadn't known Drake released music earlier this week, but he did release two songs--"Fake Love" and "Sneakin'." Drake can sometimes be a fairly thoughtful artists, and "Fake Love" does provide us with an interesting story and situation to think about. The song is low key rap and somewhat R&B hip-hop that recalls his style in songs like "One Dance" or "Hotline Bling." "Fake Love" is about people pretending to be his friend because they want to use him and to be better than him, and there's a lot that goes into making that meaning happen.

What does "Don't Wanna Know" by Maroon 5 ft. Kendrick Lamar mean?

First off, if this isn't jungle-beat EDM, I don't know what it is. I certainly don't want to point fingers, but Maroon 5 is drinking the kool-aid at some level or another, right down to the funny, scrunchy voice modulation in the first few seconds. I know that sounds critical, but it's a good sound, and they do it well, so I like the music. But what of the lyrics? Let's take a closer look...

What does "Million Reasons" by Lady Gaga mean?

In a video on Rolling Stone's website about her upcoming album Joanne, Lady Gaga explained that her album is about growing personal connections with fans: "I wanted to write songs that would speak to a woman or a man who thought that they could never connect with me." To that end, "Million Reasons" is a strong success. While the lyrics don't seem deep at first, I think the topic they're about is deep, and I think the simplicity of the song allows the depth of that topic and feeling to speak for itself in a deep way.
