“The Way Life Goes” – Song Review

The Way Life Goes - Song Review

The song “The Way Life Goes” by Lil Uzi Vert is a song of depression. In the song Lil Uzi explains that in 2016 he was very sad about Brittany Byrd, his girlfriend of many years. They broke up which leads to this song. He also said in an interview that he struggled with the breakup, but as time passed he finally was getting over her. This is explained in the song with the line, “if she ever call my phone you know I gotta dead her but I like that girl too much, I wish I never met her.” The song goes on to say, “I know it hurts sometimes but you’ll get over it (woah). You’ll find another life to live I swear that you’ll get over it (you’ll get over it).”

The song was released in 2017 on the album Luv Is a Rage 2. It is first on the top 200 billboards and is first in top RnB/Hip-Hop. The album rating is B.

The song to me is really good. It takes me to a place that not a lot of songs do. I feel like life is going to go on without you no matter what. If something bad happens, it hurts but sooner or later it gets better, “get over it” just like in the song. It’s just “The Way Life Goes.”
