[artist id="2545682"]Drake’s[/artist] long-awaited collaboration with Kanye West finally hit the Internet early Thursday morning (April 29). The pulsating “Find Your Love” was released on the Toronto MC’s Web site (though it has since been taken down due to bandwidth issues).
The track was produced by West and features Drake in full crooner mode as he sings about saving his relationship.
“I’m more than just an option,” he sings over sparse drums and piano licks. “Refuse to be forgotten/ I took a chance with my heart/ And I feel it taking over / I better find your loving/ I better find your heart.”
“Find Your Love” is Drake’s second official single from his debut album Thank Me Later, due June 15. Lead selection “Over” came out in March ; “Shut It Down,” featuring The-Dream , leaked soon after; and he’s been performing another song, “Fireworks,” on his Away From Home Tour.
The rapper was in Jamaica recently to film the video for “Find Your Love.” The track is Drake’s third collaboration with West , who direct the “Best I Ever Had” video and joined Drake, Lil Wayne and Eminem on “Forever.”
Last year Drake told MTV News that the 808s & Heartbreak superstar was “the most influential person on his sound.”
“Before I ever got the chance to meet him, Kanye West shaped a lot of what I do, as far as music goes,” Drake said. “We always, always, always took the time to listen to Kanye’s music and appreciate it beyond. We searched the samples and find out where his inspiration came from, because he has one of the best ears in music, period. He knows how to recognize great music that’s not his. He knows how to utilize great sounds and great music. So before I met him, I had the utmost respect for Kanye West. I’d even go as far as to say he’s the most influential person, as far as a musician, that I’d ever had in my life.”
