Song of the Day: Drake enlists Headie One for “Only You Freestyle”
Our Song of the Day is the latest audio and visual release from Drake.
On the “Only You Freestyle,” Drake breaks out the UK drill flow to team up with London rapper Headie One, known for various big records including “Both” and the Dave-assisted “18HUNNA.”
Besides being an absolute slapper—with Headie One certain to gain some new fans after destroying the M1OnTheBeat production—the “Only You Freestyle” appears to be especially notable for heating up the Drake / Pusha T feud.
After letting off some Arabic bars—the fourth language Drake has rapped in over the past week—the OVO boss switched to some lyrics which have many assumed were targeted at The Clipse rapper. A “Drake 🤔” tweet from Kanye West seemed to confirm the speculation.
“Don’t make me have to rise my rifle
Man try send some young boys for me, don’t make me have to ride by high school
Shit you man been droppin’ lately, don’t make me have to fly my iTunes
So much people buy into my hype, don’t make me have to buy my hype too
Dealt with the big homie already, don’t make me have to side-by-side you
Nuff times he tried to hide behind you
Amnesia but when I remind you
I’m touchin’ road and I can’t find you
Word to the M-O-B I’m tied to
I’m givin’ up when I decide to”
The new video for “Only You Freestyle” was directed by Nathan James Tettey and Theo Skudra, and features VFX from Jac Harries. The video has racked up three million views in the first 24 hours. Check it out below.
