Canadian chart-topper Drake has a new track that might beat his previous release "Nice For What" on the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
The 31-year-old has teamed up with fellow rapper Lil Baby for the single titled "Yes Indeed."
Drake Is A Pokemon Master
Drake has been teasing the new song in the past few weeks. He first confirmed the collaboration earlier this month at a party in Atlanta to celebrate the release of Preme's album, Light of Day. The rapper provided a preview of the track which ended up circulating the web.
The teaser, however, just made fans desperate to hear the rest of the track.
"Yes Indeed" finally debuted on Saturday, May 12, on the OVO Sound Radio.
During Drake's verse, the rapper can be heard making a shoutout to Wheezy who produced the song. The Atlanta-based producer is also credited for Drake and 21 Savage's collaboration "Issa," Genius noted.
The Grammy-winning artist also mentioned his record label Young Money Entertainment that also manages Nicki Minaj. Lil Wayne owns the said label.
The track also references football star Tom Brady, Drake's yellow Ferrari, African-American actress Tracee Ellis Ross who appeared on "Nice For What," basketball player Kevin Durant, and R. Kelly's 1993 track "Sadie," according to Genius.
Drake will be releasing his next album, Scorpion, in June 2018. He also reportedly finished a collaboration with fellow Canadian artist Paul Anka which will come out this summer.
Drake Versus Childish Gambino
Since he released his most recent two-track EP, Drake has been dominating the music charts. "God's Plan" stayed on the number 1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 for 11 weeks before his other track "Nice For What" finally broke the streak.
The song released in April has been topping the chart for four consecutive weeks.
However, Childish Gambino's catchy and socially conscious new track "This Is America" proves to be a good contender for Drake's "Nice For What." However, Gambino might finally eclipse Drake at the top of the Hot 100 this month.
Billboard reports that "This Is America" is expected to draw over 50 million streams in the United States within one week after its release. It could also reach 8 million radio airplay and about 60,000 downloads during the tracking week.
Donald Glover, who hosted Saturday Night Live, debuted the song on the long-running sketch show. The song's music video also went viral and has been the subject of several online essays from CNN to The Atlantic.
