Tell her I apologize, happened over time
He’s saying he apologizes to her, but over time he’s gotten richer and richer and his fame has grown, that is why he’s the way he is.
This can allude to how he’s been singing more on his tracks, which a lot of his fans are asking, why? Thus, he’s saying “I’m sorry, over time I got like this”.
Before the fame, Drake was a very warm, loving young man that had admiration and respect for almost everybody (artists, women, friends, fam). But the betrayal he has received from these people throughout his career, being used, set up and robbed, hated on, etc. stole that warmth he so easily gave. His heart’s turning cold, trust is gone. Here, he is apologizing to this woman for not being able to show the affection and care he has been known for and she is expecting.
