Hear A Snippet Of Drake’s Latest Beyonce Collaboration
The point of Drake’s fourth album title, Views from the 6, is to shout out his native Toronto. (“The 6” references two of its area codes, 416 and 647.) Along with his role as team ambassador for the Toronto Raptors, the rapper seems more hellbent than ever to reclaim his hometown.
The latest proof is a snippet, reportedly of his Views from the 6 collaboration with none other than Beyonce. She prompts him to show her around, among other things: “(Can I) bring to the 6 where I really stay / (baby) show you the way I really am / (Can I) tell you what I think my biggest flaw is / (baby) I try to stay consistent, but I can’t.”
The last time Beyonce worked with Drake was 2013’s “Mine,” a high-stakes rap/R&B duet. This time, though, with its minimal production, they seem trapped in an echo chamber, if not Drake’s own mind. Listen below.
