Composition[edit]

"I'm Upset" is a hip hop song that features a trap production and "rolling hi-hats, deep bass and a subdued piano loop", with Drake rapping lines such as "I'm upset/50,000 on my head, it's disrespect".[1][2] Drake also references needing to pay a woman's bills every month and "get her what she want".[2] The song was also noted as containing an emo influence.[3]
