Well. This is awkward. The last time I put a Drake song on repeat had to be when HYFR came out, and I had just signed off on the paperwork to become a full-time writer for PITNB. LMAO, OMG… but those were special circumstances! I’m not… really… a Drake fan… am I??? When he first came out I vowed to never, fully take him seriously as a rapper/singer/anything that wasn’t my beloved Jimmy on Degrassi. But something’s changed in me y’all. He is dropping these new songs all over the place and… I really like them. 5 AM In Toronto was my jam, even Started From The Bottom grew on me a bit.. and now there’s this new jam! Girls Love Beyoncé (featuring James Fauntleroy) is currently on repeat and there’s nothing anyone can do about it, lol! The song dropped a couple of days ago, but click inside for your first listen if you missed it (or your thousandth listen if you loved it).
Drake Featuring James Fauntleroy:
Geez, he knows how to get the ladies on his team, right? LMAO. I cannot stop playing this song! And I love this James Fauntleroy guy! Apparently he’s put in work with Justin Timberlake, and his voice just sounds perfect on this track. Now on my first listen, I definitely didn’t think I was gonna be going crazy over this one, but I’m hooked now. I’m hooked, and I’m not ashamed to admit it… okay I sort of am, lol. But I’m working through it.
What do y’all think of this new jam? I love the shouts-out to Throwback Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child, and I can actually hear Drake‘s obsession with Aaliyah coming through a little bit too. Weird, right? It’s got a very old school, 90s, R&B/Hip-Hop feel to it, and it just works.
Oh, and then I just love the lyrics!
I come through in whips that make a young boy take the long way home
All my young boys ‘round me saying, “Get money and fuck these hoes”
Where we learn these values? I do not know what to tell you
Sigh. You can check out the rest of the lyrics at DirectLyrics. What do y’all think of the song? Girls Love Beyoncé?! LMAO… such a good title.
