Many are calling the new track “homophobic.”  In the song Weeknd sings the lyrics, You said you might be into girls/ Said you’re going through a phase. Keeping your heart safe/ Well, baby, you can bring a friend/ She can ride on top your face/ While I f**k you straight. 

Some have taken issue with the fact that the song suggests being attracted to people of the same gender is a “phase,” and others are upset with the f**k you straight lyric.

He even seems to take a shot at Drake in the first verse as well. He says “I just want a baby with the right one / ‘Cause I could never be the one to hide one.” potentially referring to Drake and his son Adidon.
