Drake definitely put Toronto on the map when it comes to the rap game, so what Canadian province will be next up to get some rap game credit? Quebec may be up for the task, with a lot of producer talent hailing from Montreal, including A-Trak and more recently Kaytranada. Today we're introduced to a Montreal rapper that definitely has the potential-- 23-year old Wasiu. Wasiu is laced with a cold beat from fellow Montrealer on "Physical", which serves as the first leak off his forthcoming untitled album.
Of the track, Wasiu says, "'Physical' is about casual sex where love is strictly forbidden. The lyric 'I can't feel your love cause I'm numb to it' explains how years of emotional pain can make someone emotionless, and consequently this can turn a once seeker of love into a seeker of numbers, seeking phone numbers to increase body count. The cover art for the single embodies this notion and depicts the numbers/barcode/body count wordplay." He also revealed that the inspiration for this track was sparked by both Drake's "Forever" and FKA Twigs' "Numbers."

Kiss me under mistletoe
Blow me like a whistle go
Love me like you miss me though
Accept me cause I'm difficult
Remember it's just physical
