I swear I said about a hundred times, I'm gonna need it back
This line is a continuation of the last line spoken in Cameras (the previous song). During the outro Drake says,
Just mail me my ring back, can’t keep that shit…
Drake proposed to one of his lovers in the past, but somewhere along the way their plans fell through. He’s asked the girl for his ring back 100 times now, but she refuses to give it back to him.
There are a couple of other ways to interpret this line. Both ways interpret it as a continuation to the first line in this song:
- Drake took a vacation after Thank Me Later dropped and people thought he had fell off. Drake is telling the new rappers who have been trying to take his spot (on the radio stations & in the clubs) that he needs it back.
- He’s looking to take a break from the girl he’s been dating. He wants his summer “back” so that he can do his own thing.
