“Make It Better” by Anderson .Paak (Ft. Smokey Robinson)
The premise of “Make It Better” is that Anderson .Paak (supported by Smokey Robinson) is singing from the perspective of an individual in a troubled relationship. This is especially upsetting because, as he points out in the first verse, this romance was formerly highlighted by genuine affection, good times and spontaneous yet meaningful intimate moments. But now things have reached a point where it appears it is “easier to walk away” then to try to perpetuate the relationship. Thus the question that dominates the song is if his significant other wants to put effort into ‘making it better’. In other words, .Paak and co. don’t want the love to end. Owing to this, he offers options as to how to make it last.
Indeed at the beginning of the second verse, he acknowledges that fond memories alone are not going to keep the love alive. So he is suggesting some unconventional initiatives to keep the relationship strong. For instance, instead of meeting at the house, the couple can spend time together in an unfamiliar setting, such as a hotel. He is also down to experiment with new techniques to spark intimate excitement. Most certainly some uninhibited, free-spirited intimate adventure is high on the agenda of getting this love affair back on track.
Ultimately Anderson .Paak understands that this relationship is not in a good place, indeed even on the verge of collapse. However, he also firmly believes that through cooperation with his partner and adventurousness, the situation can be rectified.
