The 6th god rapper was asked why he recorded the song with Skpeta, if it was some attempt at ‘international outreach’ to become a truly global star, having already conquered North America, Drake swayed that impression by saying;
“I just did it because I was in the moment. I wasn’t thinking like, ‘Oh man, I gotta get my brand up in Nigeria. Not to say that’s not important. I’m super-honored to be on that song.’
Drake also revealed that he first heard the song through Skepta and that Ojuelegba was so remarkable.
According FADE: “Drake had to rap in a way he’s never rapped before, to the extent that it takes him a couple of bars to find the swing of the beat. As soon as he does find it (it happens right as he’s singing Pree me, dem a pree me, Jamaican patois for ‘they’re watching me’) his vocals and the music click into place, and suddenly the song sounds like it could be a stateside hit.”
