SZA, The Weeknd, Travis Scott – Power Is Power
The track could be interpreted as seeing the three artists taking on the perspectives of Thrones characters. The Weeknd’s contributions here (“I was born of the ice and snow…”) suggest a bit of Jon Snow, while SZA and La Flame are presumably holding down the Daenerys and Night King voices, respectively. In the chorus, Abel sings of a desire to burn down his own power:
I rise from my scars
Nothing hurts me now
‘Cause power is power
Now watch me burn it down
