The synth-swamped ballad tells about a man who still can't get rid of the memory of his former lover even years after they split.
Drake has just revealed his brand new track called "Where Were You". Instead of offering upbeat tempo, the Dawn Richard-assisted song is more of an alluring ballad with clicking beats, expensive-sounding synths and mid-paced tempo. Drizzy sings about a man who still feels desperate even years after breaking up with his girlfriend.
"I have to watch the road/ I swear that every car that passes has you in it/ I can't believe we're finished/ My life is movin' fast/ The time will often pass/ And something will remind me/ I can't put this behind me," so Drake softly croons in the verse.
There's still no word on whether "Where Were You" will appear in Drake's upcoming album or mixtape. The Canadian artist's manager and producer Colin Munroe explains that the track was supposed to be Drizzy's collaboration with him and producers Boi-1da and D10.
The song was initially submitted to be included in Drake's 2010 studio set "Thank Me Later". Since it was eventually not featured in the album, Munroe released his own version of the song titled "Whatever Became of You", which was included in his mixtape "Unsung Hero".
