Drake has debuted new song 'Draft Day'. Scroll down to hear the song now.

'Draft Day' samples Lauryn Hill's 'Doo Wop (That Thing)' and sees the rapper shout out Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence as well as criticising Chance The Rapper and namechecking a number of NFL and NBA players including Andrew Wiggins and Johnny Manziel.

Rapping about Chance The Rapper, Drake raps: "If I’d leave this shit to chance, I’da picked a name like Chance the Rapper." Though he does add "no offence" in the next line, stating that he does not know the 'Acid Rap' artist.

'Draft Day' follows a href="http://www.nme.com/news/drake/76254">another new Drake song, 'Days In The East', played for the first time during a gig at Birmingham's NIA last month (March 21).

Drake's latest album 'Nothing Was The Same' came out on September 24 last year and debuted at Number One on the US Billboard 200 albums chart and at Number Two on the UK's Official Albums Chart – Drake's highest position yet in the UK.

Drake returns to the UK in July when he will a href="http://www.nme.com/news/kanye-west/75137">headline this year's Wireless festival, which this year takes place in both London and Birmingham for the first time. He joins fellow headliners Kanye West and Bruno Mars on a bill which also includes Outkast, Pharrell Williams and Tinie Tempah.
