Drake Sings, Raps & Sings Again On “Wu-Tang Forever”: Listen

7f0208027ff7ef0156311df9c6e01bd8 Drake Sings, Raps & Sings Again On “Wu Tang Forever”: Listen

Nobody really knew what to expect from a Drake song called “Wu-Tang Forever,” since his style of hip-hop is just about the polar opposite of Wu-Tang Clan‘s. And now the Nothing Was The Same track has hit the Web, and it’s doubtful anyone could’ve predicted the final product (“Hey, why don’t I appropriate Wu-Tang on a song that sounds like P.M. Dawn!”). The song is named after Wu-Tang’s second album and samples “It’s Yourz” from that 1997 LP. But despite the allusions to the gritty Staten Island rap crew, Drizzy doesn’t play “hardball” on this track. At least, not at first, when he’s singing again.

Once he gets into the raps, he goes through a few different styles of delivery, from barking to snarling to a controlled flow. The spare beat and swirling keyboards create a perfectly malleable foundation for the variety of vocal approaches. And, of course, he finishes by singing.

While the Nothing Was The Same tracklist only mentioned two guest spots, it was believed that Jhene Aiko appeared somewhere on it, and according to Miss Info, that’s her you hear in the background at the end of this track. So, mystery solved. Check it out below.
