The Toronto rapper releases a new song where he samples Destiny's Child's track 'Say My Name'.
Canadian rapper Drake posted a new song on his SoundCloud page featuring Roc Nation R 'n' B singer James Fauntleroy, just a day after the his star-studded collaboration with Lil Wayne and Rick Ross on DJ Khaled's "No New Friends". Entitled "Girls Love Beyonce", the 26-year-old recording artist uses 90's R 'n' B vibe as a backdrop as he raps about the dating struggles a superstar like him goes through.
In the almost four-minute track that name-drops Beyonce Knowles, Drake also samples the pop/R 'n' B diva's popular hit from her Destiny's Child days, "Say My Name". Collaborator Fauntleroy actually gets to handle the sample, as he sings it in the hook, while Drake handles the rap-sing verses where he hopes for that one special girl "who will help me think of someone besides myself" and "someone I leave the front door with cause we don't want to hide no more."
Fans who have attended any of Drake's shows would know that this is not the first time the rap superstar has used the DC hit song in his live performances. In one particular instance, he performed it at the OVO Festival in his native Toronto, Canada back in 2011, where he showcased more of his singing skills than his already known rapping prowess.
Although Drake has revealed that the new track will not appear in his forthcoming album "Nothing Was the Same", he applies his "5AM in Toronto" owl art on a close-up shot of the Queen Bey for the new single art.
