“Very Few Friends” by Saint Levant
“Very Few Friends” is a love song in which we witness “Lover Boy Levant” gushing over the apple of his eye. To note Saint Levant is in fact a rapper, and relatedly this piece reads a lot like other romantic tracks which tend to fall into that genre.
For instance, a bulk of the lyrics are designed in such a way as to insinuate that the vocalist is wealthy and of course willing to splurge on his sweetheart. But what makes this case different is his related moves being centered, in part, in the Middle East. For instance, you’d likely be hard-pressed to come across another romance rap where the vocalist is looking forward to spending some well-paid quality time with his boo in Beirut.
Another aspect of “Very Few Friends” that gives it a unique edge is Saint Levant being multilingual and accordingly dropping lyrics not only in English but also Arabic and French. Moreover, concerning how the title is utilized, it points to the idea of both he and his partner being “focused”, i.e. too busy grinding to focus on socializing or what have you. But beyond that, to reiterate what we are dealing with here is a quintessential rap-based love song in nature.
