Hear Drake's new verse from the version of "Pop Style" that was played during tonight's episode of OVO Sound Radio.

The most exciting moment of tonight's episode of OVO Sound Radio came before any music was played, as Drake began the show by announcing the release date of Views from the 6. Fans have got until April 29 to download Apple Music, the platform on which the album will be exclusively released. During the October Firm (Drake + Oliver El-Khatib) mix that ensued, listeners heard both of last week's surprise Drizzy tracks, "One Dance" and "Pop Style," the latter of which received a slight update -- with a brand new verse from Drake. 

Neither member of The Throne showed up on the version of "Pop Style" that was played tonight. Instead, Drake came through with a new verse of his own. And Drake's new verse begins with the two lines -- the ONLY two -- that Jay Z rapped on the original: "They still out to get me, they don't get it / I cannot be got, and that's a given" (the only difference is that Drake replaced the second "they" with "I"). 

Elsewhere in the new verse, Drake is back on his slick shit, sounding cockier than ever. "MVP, MVP, oh-nine all the way to 16 / Even that season looking like a breeze," he raps as he sends his problems away to the gym ("they all work out"). 

Quotable Lyrics 

Lot of y'all ain't built for the league, yeah
Trade you off the team while you in your sleep, yeah
Y'all showed me that nothing's guaranteed 
And you don't know what you started 
My friend's chain so big that he look like the artist 
I can't trust no fuckin' body
They still out to get me cause they never got me
