Drake hinted at a new project when he performed at the Apollo Theater and it looks like he wasn’t joking. The Her Loss rapper debuted his new single, known as “Rescue Me” on OVO Sound Radio last Friday. Following a joint project with 21 Savage and a foray into house music, the record felt like a return to form for Drake, even down to the petty addition of a Kim Kardashian sample. Overall, fans hoped that the record would finally drop on DSPs, and this morning, he delivered.

The Certified Lover Boy is back in his bag on his new single, “Search & Rescue.” SadPony and BNXY (with additional help from Lil Yachty, 40, Wesley Curtis, and BEAUTIFULMVN) form the moody production while Drizzy’s kicking emotive melodies which are riddled with a touch of auto-tune. The song stays to its original form with the Kim Kardashian sample, as well, while Drake reflects on his search for true love and settling with one woman. 

Drake Comes Back Strong

With the release of “Search & Rescue,” we hope that this means Drake’s revving up to drop off some new heat before the summer. Sure, he just blessed us with Her Loss only a few months ago but he already began teasing Scary Hours 3. Though there hasn’t been any clear indication if it’ll drop later this year, it’s hard to think that Drake was simply being generous when he shared his new single. 

The song also comes on the heels of Drake’s performance at Dreamville Festival. Drizzy and J. Cole co-headlined Sunday night with a star-studded spectacle. While Cole brought fans through a journey of his catalog, Drake pulled out some show-stopping guest appearances. Lil Uzi Vert, GloRilla, Lil Wayne and 21 Savage came through to perform a few songs. Later this year, Drake and 21 will embark on the It’s All A Blur tour in support of Her Loss. Check out “Search & Rescue” above.

Quotable Lyrics
I don't really know how to confess my love
Really seein' that God wanna test my love for you
Don't know how to express my love
That's why I American Express my love for you
