It's my birthday, I'll get high if I want to
Reference an old song by Lesley Gore called “It’s My Party”, in which she says “It’s my party, I’ll cry if I want to”.
If you listen to the chorus of It’s My Party, you’ll see that Drake mimics its tone in this line and the next few lines.
It would be clever if he was taking this line from back in the day and using it as an excuse to blaze. However, he’s actually interpolating Fabolous’s line in This is My Party from his Street Dreams album (2003).
(Fun fact: “Take Care” was supposed to be released on Drake’s birthday.)
