If you're a fan of hip-hop, you'll love "Sorry Not Sorry" by DJ Khaled and Nas. This song is one of the early favorites on the 'Khaled Khaled' album. It features the two rappers along with Beyonce and James Fauntleroy.
The lyrics of "Sorry Not Sorry" are filled with powerful bars, as Jay-Z and Nas collaborate. They also contain some double-entendres. As a result, the song is a lyrical masterpiece.
Aside from the lyrics, the song is also a visual spectacle. After Jay-Z and Nas' verses, Beyonce and James Fauntleroy join the fray. Their music is accompanied by a mysterious group called Harmonies by the Hive.
While the lyrics in the chorus have some very sarcastic lyrics, they also talk about the importance of living the dream. This explains the title of the song, as it is a reference to the proverbial American dream. In fact, this track is a metaphor for growth and elevation.
In the second verse, Jay-Z takes the baton and delivers some of his typical lyrical punchlines. He mentions his relationship with Queen Bey and ties his respect to her. Additionally, he makes reference to his billionaire status.
"Sorry Not Sorry" has a message on the chorus, which says: "Haters, never touch my head/They say it's like fasting/But you know that it's really a blessing to be me." But, he goes on to say, he wants to make it clear that he doesn't miss out on lunch while working in mills.
