Drake has shared a preview of a new song speculated to be titled ‘Rescue Me’ – which samples reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
Last Friday (March 31), the rapper previewed the unreleased track on Sound 42’s The Fry Yiy Show on SiriusXM Radio.
The sample comes in after the first verse of the song and shares a line of dialogue from a conversation between the reality TV star and her mother Kris Jenner where they discussed her decision to separate from Kanye West.
“I didn’t come this far, just to come this far and not be happy. Remember that,” she said in the clip, which comes from the series finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2021.

Drake has had a history of feuding with West – but things seemed to be resolved between the two after their joint headline performance at the “Free Larry Hoover” benefit concert in the Los Angeles’ Coliseum in 2021.
Fans have been speculating whether the two rappers are back to being enemies or if the sample is just a reflection of the lyrical content of the track itself.
Though there is no official release date for the song, producer BNYX (Yeat, Ty Dolla $ign) has confirmed that he is the one behind the beat for ‘Rescue Me’. He tweeted: “I remember when I used to add the Drake acapellas to my beats to see if they was hard. Now look.”
