Huey V pins down the emotion felt in a “break up to make up” kind of relationship in “Feelings.” Bolstered by a production reminiscent of Jay-Z‘s “Song Cry,” the three-minute and twenty-nine-second offering hints at several tell-tail signs of a waning union.
Using a steady flow, he spits
“It’s feel like I ain’t never left, but, I ain’t ever see a phone call or text/Double check before I send you what I’m thinkin’ next/You know that boy blessed, you know that boy stressed.”
Soon after, the musician speaks about his drive to stay independent. Yet, his admirer finds ways to stir up drama about their undefined pairing.
“You askin’, huh, “Who is that, is he doing that again?”/I pulled over in traffic, why you overreacting?,” he raps. “Stop going through my phone, you gon’ find what you askin’/I know you hate that b-tch, I hate her too if you ask me.”
The second verse takes a page from Huey’s heartstrings. He opens up about what he’s starting to dislike about their relationship and how evident this “house” isn’t viewed as “a home no more.”
He spits, “You don’t hide it when you speaking in your tone no more/Like fine tooth when you show your thorns/Hate to soak it up/Fuck, when speaking turns feel like terms and agreements/We don’t speak enough for it.”
The “Bygones Be Bygone” artist continues by reflecting on his previous actions in relationships and the dynamic shift it caused.
Huey V delivers, “You don’t seem to touch/You don’t even check my phone when I leave it up/Scared of what you may see like you ain’t seen enough/But stuck around through everything, how we gon’ clean this up?“
He also says “Whatever you met in your past, I’m not perfect/But when I’m drowning, I can still see the surface, just work with me, huh.”
“Feelings” comes off Huey V’s project, So Below.
