“Star Shopping” by Lil Peep
On “Star Shopping”, Lil Peep appears to be talking about his relationship with Emma Harris and how he needed more time to prove himself to her. In what seems to be a gradual drift from the relationship, the singer tells Emma who may be losing interest to give him some more time so he works on himself and their bond.
The song begins with the rapper appreciating his partner’s beauty while admitting his flaws and adequacies as a man. He shows that he understands why she may be losing interest and growing impatient, yet assures her that he will do everything possible to make it work. The writer also references how Emma’s friends and family do not like him, possibly another factor causing their distance. The track ends with the narrator asking if she would still be with him when his music career sets sail. He also talks about how music gives him all the comfort he needs when he gets disappointed.
