A new Drake leak, with no official word on the track and if it’s intended for Views From The 6. (UPDATE: Up top is a cool, albeit unofficial album art. Also, the song has been removed. Sorry, prolly shoulda led off with that.)
That said, produced by Boi-1da, “How About Now” samples Jodeci’s “My Heart Belongs To You” in Kanye chopped up sample fashion. It works as Drake melodically raps and reflects on a girl who didn’t put in enough energy back before he was a star. Drake plays the part of the relationship that did, and now, years later with Drake a star, he asks, “How About Now”? In brief, that F U track to an ex who didn’t appreciate ya. I think a lot of us can relate to that, so I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s vibing with this one. Drake’s delivery on the hook is well-done, per usual too. Plus, is that Nicki‘s voice on the voicemail in the intro? Listen/download while you can and we await word… Hopefully we’ll see an official release soon..!
