“Conversations” is the second track on Juice WRLD’s first posthumous album ‘Legends Never Die.’ The song talks about the singer’s battles with his own demons in his head and often him losing these battles. Drugs and love are his only hopes of escapes from this torment.
‘Legends Never Die’ is Juice WRLD’s third studio album and was rumored to be titled ‘Outsiders.’ However, after Juice WRLD’s death in December 2019, the album title changed into its current title in retrospect of the artist’s legacy. Two singles released ahead of the album release, namely; “Righteous” and “Tell Me U Luv Me.” Two other promotional singles released days before the album release, namely; “Life’s A Mess” featuring Halsey and “Come & Go” featuring Marshmello. A note released along with the album mentions “We feel that this collection of 15 songs best represents the music Juice was in the process of creating… Juice dedicated his music to his fans and, now more than ever, we hope this album brings some reprieve to everyone during these unsettling times.”
The title of the song, “Conversations,” is a reference to the devil inside his head wanting to talk with Juice. But Juice is not ready for it. A sit-down with the devil could presumably go either way. It might be a resolution or it might turn into the worse. Juice may feel as if he is not ready confront his fears. Hence, he just keeps on postponing this conversation and drowning himself in painkillers to numb the pain.

On the first verse of the song, Juice WRLD lays down his solutions to numbing his pain: booze, drugs, weed, repeat. The only genuinely better thing in his life is his girlfriend or his future wife.
The rapper is often left with a dozen of unanswered questions about his own life, even some as basic as “will I be alright?” There is nobody to answer him, which makes him even more paranoid. Maybe the only one available for the conversation is the devil within himself…And in goes more pills!
