"Life don’t taste the same without you/Tears in my champagne ‘bout you/Quit playing girl, you know I’m crazy ‘bout you,” he raps on the verse, assumedly rapping about his relationship with Beyoncé.

He closes the verse, indicating that he’s a changed man after wronging his partner.

" Love you for my life, and I put that on my dead/Put that on my daddy’s new porch, cigarettes/He blew cancer rings, I got toxic traits/Look who coaxed the ghost out my body, got me straight/I don’t want no smoke, baby girl you fire/Can’t end up like my folks, nah."
