Drake finally releases the CDQ of his 2009 song "You Know, You Know."

One track that never officially made the cut on Drake's 2010 debut album Thank Me Later was "You Know, You Know." The song was actually never officially released, but well-known nevertheless among Drizzy aficionados of that era. Out of nowhere, Drake has now published the "You Know, You Know" CDQ to his YouTube channel.

Produced by Kanye West, "You Know, You Know" features a passionate but muted vocal sample duking it out against a frantic, sleek arpeggiated synth. It's a dissonance that nicely encapsulates Kanye's departure from down-home, soul-based samples to his journey throughout the electronic sonic universe.

"You Know, You Know" was created in 2009. How does it hold up seven years later?

Quotable Lyrics

Damn, what happened to us?
Life can always change, you have to adjust
How come when I got a party you stare at me in disgust?
They pay us just to have fun you should see that as a plus
Especially when I come flyin' through the door
And kindly ignore, the paparazzi outside tryin to record
Why has every woman never dined here before?
Am I the only 23 year old wine connoisseur?
