Andre's verse for "Sixteen" spins off of the song's concept-breaking free of the shackles imposed by a quick sixteen bars-to explore how his life has changed, how his concerns and environment have shifted, from the time he was a teenager to his current state, dropping some tidbits of knowledge along the way. He touches on ambition, disillusionment with a partying life, the drawbacks of fame before resolving with a message somehow both ambiguous and direct.
