Shortly before 8 p.m. ET, Drizzy and DJ Khaled premiered “No New Friends,” featuring Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. While the Boi-1da and Noah “40” Shebib-produced song stands as the official remix to Drake’s “Started From the Bottom” single, it will actually appear on Khaled’s upcoming Suffering From Success LP.
The track’s title is derived from Drake’s “Started” where he declares: “No new n—-as, n—a we don’t feel that/ F— a fake friend, where ya real friends at?”
With Khaled’s latest, the Toronto hit maker picks up right where he left off. “Man this sh– so ill that we had to restart it,” he spits before shouting his day one OVO friends and his Cash Money leader Birdman.
With fans still buzzing over the new tune well into the a.m. hours, Drake hit them again with the 40-produced, James Fauntleroy-assisted “Girls Love Beyoncé” on Tuesday morning (April 16). The track, which finds Drake and Fauntleroy singing an interpolation of the 1999 Destiny’s Child hit “Say My Name,” is markedly different from “No New Friends.” Drizzy’s usual angst gets toned down as he directs his attention toward the women in his life. “Look, I know girls love Beyoncé, girls love to f— with your conscious/ Girls hate when n—as go different and shorty you ain’t no different,” he croons.
Drizzy goes on about his high-profile love life and fears of commitment. “I need someone I can leave through the front door with, ’cause we don’t wanna hide no more/ Plus, you’re not shy no more, neither of us wanna play the side no more,” he whispers in reference to his under-the-microscope dating life.
It’s unclear whether either track will appear on Drake’s upcoming Nothing Was the Same album, and it’s likely that “No New Friends” will exclusively sit on Khaled’s Suffering From Success, but whatever the case, all this new music can only mean one thing: Drake’s comeback season is in full swing.
