Drake Welcomes Lil Wayne to Find ‘The Real Her’

Remember ‘Houstatlantavegas’? The song, a cut from Drake‘s lauded ‘So Far Gone’ mixtape, has the Toronto native crooning of one girl stuck between the cities with her eye on money and fame. Now Drizzy calls on different women from those cities on his new Lil Wayne-assisted ‘The Real Her.’

As Drake prepares for the Nov. 15 release of his sophomore LP, ‘Take Care,’ this track, a slow burner that sees the rapper singing in his signature tone, comes as a sonic precursor to the effort.

There’s no confirmation yet on whether or not ‘The Real Her’ will make the final tracklisting on the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Thank Me Later,’ but the song builds more anticipation for what’s to come and provides more of Weezy’s lyrical goodies in the process.

“Houston girls love the way it goes down, Atlanta girls love the way it goes down, Vegas girls love the way it goes down,” Drake croons on the chorus. “But I gotta say, oh baby, h baby, why is this so familiar/ Just met, already feel like I know the real her/ You must’ve done this before, this can’t be your first time/ We must’ve been here before, it’s still fresh on my mind.”

Lil Wayne, who flicks his lighter, introducing his verse, rhyming, “‘Cause to her I’m just a rapper and soon she’ll have met another/ So if tonight’s an accident, tomorrow we’ll recover/ And I know I’m not supposed to judge a book by its cover/ I dont want be in the blind but sometimes I Stevie Wonder/ About her and she wit it if I’m wit, and I’m wit it.”

‘Take Care’ drops Nov. 15. The 24-year-old has previously debuted songs ‘Headlines‘ and ‘Make Me Proud‘ featuring Nicki Minaj, which are both set to appear on the LP.
