The Weeknd Facing Backlash Over “Lost in the Fire”

The Weeknd is facing backlash over his new song “Lost In The Fire”

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.
