Rapper drops second new track in a week
Drake has revealed his second new track this week – scroll down and click to listen to ‘Days In The East’.
The song is a full-length version of a track that the rapper previously debuted at a show in Birmingham last month, which was then known as ‘Call On Me’.
The track, which was produced by PARTYNEXTDOOR and also features frequent collaborator Noah “40” Shebib, references an incident in which Drake visited singer Erykah Badu, with the lyric: “Remember one night I went to Erykah Badu’s house/She made tea for me“.
Yesterday (March 2), Drake unveiled the new track ‘Draft Day’, which 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.
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 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.
