GoldLink‘s got the DL on real talk logic with “Sober Thoughts.” Produced by Kaytranada, it’s the type of track that should be bumping on your car stereo with the windows down as you drive through your old neighborhood in the summertime. “Sober Thoughts” has an old-school, feel-good vibe to it with the sing-along chorus, “Good music / I got that / Good head / I got that / Sweet jams / We got that / One beef / I’m ’bout that.”
GoldLink said of the track…
“Sober Thoughts” is a song about an unhealthy relationship I was in with a girl, where we would continue to mistreat each other, to spite each other. We were bad for each other, yet we always came back together, because we thought we “loved each other.” It was a young love, not a forever love. I was addicted to her and she was addicted to me, like a drug. We knew we should stop, but we kept going. In the end, I ask God for his help by saying, “You may not come when I want you, but you right on time.”
