They gon’ love you a little different when you at the top…”

Ain’t that the truth!

Today’s jam is ‘LoveHate Thing’ by Wale ft. Same Dew. The song is the second track off of the Nigerian-American rapper‘s latest album, The Gifted, which has been in stores since June 25th.

When asked about the premise of the song, Wale tweeted this:

On the hook, crooner Sam Dew sings:

(Keep giving me love) Hold me tight, (and then you take it away) let me go
(Keep giving me love) Heal my heart, (and then you take it away) hurt my soul
(Keep giving me love)
[They’ll never ever ever know your soul] Build me up, (and then you take it away) [Never know your heart] break me down
(Keep giving me love) Make me smile, (and then you take it away) make me frown
(Keep giving me love) [Ain’t no love in the heart of the city, that’s what they told me] Give me love, (take it away) [I’m just waiting on somebody to show me] take it all away again
(Keep giving me love) Give me love, (and then you take it away) take it all away again [Just waiting on somebody to show me]

While Wale raps:

I lost a lot of friends and they ain’t even dead
When I was on my way up, why you ain’t see the stairs?

Lord father if I opted to follow them
My heart would tear from my dreams let me know that you here

And it’s rare when I’m anywhere with too many heads
Niggas jealous and never tell it until they stare
How could you blame us envy?
We do the same thing for a living

This is definitely one of my favorite songs right now.
