We've got new Drake, and of course, it came via OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1. OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib took the decks and dropped a Drizzy remix of The Weeknd's Kanye West-produced hit "Tell Your Friends," off Beauty Behind the Madness.
The lush, slowed down instrumental is perfect for Drake, and indeed, he takes his time in between lines, sometimes singing, sometimes rapping, always on point. The subject matter is typical Drake, watching his girl "E-e-e-volve" from a distance. Honestly, we don't need any singles if he keeps dropping remixes like this.
Expect Drake's version of "Tell Your Friends" to take off in similar fashion to "Hotline Bling." Drake clearly wants to bring OVOXO back to the world, so perhaps The Weeknd will turn this into an official remix.
Check out the lyrics below -- could Drake be rapping about the woman from whose U.S. Open players' box he's currently watching make history?
Your body insane in person
Wanna do special things for you, you deserve it, but
You too famous to buy you purses, that barely scratches the surface
This time it's different, you give me purpose
