The north London MC tweeted yesterday (July 19) that his collaboration with the multi-platinum Toronto artist would be released at 9PM BST on Tuesday (July 20).
Speaking about their collaboration, Drake said in a statement: “I had to go hard, especially on a track with one of the best drill artists in the world… Scratch that — the best drill artist in the world.”
The track marks the first time that the two artists have worked on a song together – listen below now.
‘Only You Freestyle’ is the first new music from Headie One since the release of ‘Rose Gold’ in May.
The rapper also released a mixtape with Fred Again, ‘GANG,’ earlier in the year. It featured contributions from FKA twigs, Jamie xx and Slowthai, among others. ‘Told’, a track from the mixtape, was later remixed by Brian Eno.
Drake, meanwhile, released ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’ in May. The mixtape featured the single ‘Tootsie Slide’, which hit number one on the Billboard charts. He has also been at work on the official follow-up to 2018’s double album, ‘Scorpion’. The forthcoming album is reportedly “80% complete“.
