Drake x Headie One Emerges with "Only You Freestyle"

Drake continues to embark on his journey through the U.K. Drill genre, with his latest release "Only You Freestyle", featuring up-and-coming breakthrough artist, Headie One.

 Through his exploration of experimental sounds and ever-changing accents, the Canadian artist has recently collaborated with DJ Khaled releasing tracks, such as "POPSTAR" and "GREECE" on July 17th, 2020.

The emergence of U.K. drill isn't a new fascination for Drake. Inside his 2011 interview, his enthusiasm towards his discovery in the genre inspired him on his certified platinum album, Take Care.

 

 

The hauntingly captivating production of rising producer, M1OnTheBeat, takes the cake in constructing the hype surrounding the booming genre. The Arab-influenced freestyle shares similarities to tracks inside Drake's Dark Lane Demo Tapes such as "Demons" featuring some of Brooklyn drill's finest rappers Fivio Foreign and Sosa Geek as well as his last track "War" freestyle.

 

 

 

 There's no doubt that through the unspoken releases and collaborations, Drake will not ease up his rotation and continues to move in silence. Back in April, he discusses his creative motivation while on quarantine during Diddy's virtual dance-a-thon via Instagram Live. Since then, his single "Toosie Slide" took off and became a TikTok sensation along with topping a number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
