 Song BreakdownEdit

Jhene explains the outcome of a guy that she once knew. The guy used to be very popular, yet Jhene could not have him due to his ego and helpless romantic personality. However, gradually, this guy has lost it all, his popularity and his "hoes." By using 50 Cent's "Wanksta" sample, it emphasizes that he used to be "the man," but he lost his status, so he will end up alone.

 LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
I was the young girl
I was the dumb girl
I was the one who could never be your one girl
You were the fly guy
Never ask why guy
Running around making all of the girls cry guy
Laying in your bed, it gets so cold
You wonder why
You were such the man, damn
What happened? It's just so sad
They say...

[Hook]
Mr. Popular, why are you alone now?
Mr. Popular, where are all your hoes now?
Mr. Popular, why are you alone now?
Where did they all go now?
Mr. Popular, where did they all go now?
Why are you so lonely now?

[Bridge]
Damn homie, in high school you was the man homie
The fuck happened to you?
Damn homie, in high school you was the man homie
The fuck happened to you?

[Verse 2]
He wanted things that he didn't need
And I was the one who was tryna make him see that
He had it all cause he had my all
But he's a lost cause, guess you cannot save them all
And now he's at my show standing front row
He don't know how
He messed up such a good thing
Look who's popular now
They say...

Repeat Hook & Bridge
