Drake addresses relationship with The Weeknd on new song & video “War”
After a brief hiatus from releasing music, Drake is back with an early Christmas present for fans.
The AXL Beats-produced “War” addresses Drizzy’s relationship with The Weeknd and other members of the Toronto scene including members of XO and Reps Up. He acknowledges the strife from previous years, but assures listeners that the relationship has been mended, and they “had to fix things.”
“OVOXO link up, man don’t drink up, me in the trailers/Hawk and Stix and Cash and Baka, Gucci, P, and Gilla/And the boy that sound like he sang on Thriller/You know that’s been my nigga, yeah/We just had to fix things, family, 6 tings, we can’t split up”
The Theo Skudra-directed video for “War” has already racked up close to half a million views which is impressive even by Drake standards. The winter themed clip sees Drake and his crew snowboarding and partying in a chalet.
“War” is featured on the newly released El-Kuumba Tape Volume 1 which is currently available on SoundCloud. The mixtape is a collaboration between Oliver El-Khatib of OVO and Kuumba International. “War” can be found at the 42:52 mark of the track.
