The lyrics to Drake's "Laugh Now, Cry Later" may not sound very deep at first glance. But the song's subliminal messages are definitely worth exploring.
In the song, he's talking about the two different sides of his life: happiness and sadness. He mentions that there's no one on this planet who hasn't gone through these two emotions at some point in their lives.
This song is a spiritual successor to his last single, "God's Plan," and it features Cardogotwings, Yung Exclusive, and Roget Chahayed as its producers. It was released as the first single off his upcoming sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy, which is expected to release in 2020.
Another interesting part of this song is that it has some very clever rhymes from Lil Durk. During the second verse, he takes shots at several people such as Arrogant Tae, a popular hairstylist from Atlanta, rapper DaBaby, and Tekashi Sixnine. He also throws some shots at Kanye West and Pusha T.
He also takes a shot at Ye for signing his brand 'Yeezy' with a normal clothing store, Gap, instead of Nike.
The song has a very catchy chorus where it talks about the duality of life. Laughing and crying are two of the most important parts of our lives. The lyrics talk about how we can live in the moment while dealing with the problems that come later.
