The sun is shining on this Friday morning. After a tumultuous battle, where Meek Mill exposed the ghostwriting accusations that have been haunting Drake for years, the two rappers have pushed their beef aside. The two artists haven't worked together since “R.I.C.O.” off Dreams Worth More Than Money. They haven't missed a beat though. Drizzy and Meek combine for "Going Bad," a single that will be in heavy radio rotation long into 2019. Produced by Wheezy, "Going Bad" places Meek and Drake in braggadocious territory as they stunt on their enemies together.
The instrumental is haunting. Harsh piano keys color the lines between heavy-hitting percussions, creating a mix between a street anthem and a club hit. Drake takes control of most the song, delivering the first verse, the chorus, and a short post-hook. Meek Mill comes in for the second verse to clean up the instrumental with vigorous energy. Although Championships is packed with bangers, "Going Bad" will one of the most talked about singles on the project.
Don't just say you're down, you gotta show me (What you gotta do?)
Bring the clip back empty (It's empty)
You asked to see the boss, so they sent me, dawg (Sent me, dawg)
I just broke her off with a 10-piece, dawg (10-piece, dawg)
That ain't nothin', I'm just bein' friendly, dawg
