Drake Drops New Midtempo Dancehall-Inflected ‘Signs’ [LISTEN]
Drake dropped a new track today (June 23) called "Signs," and the somber midtempo track continues his dancehall flirtations. "Signs" is produced by longtime Drake collaborator, Noah "40" Shebib.
Drake debuted his new song during Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2018 collection runway show at Paris Fashion Week this past Wednesday.
In an interview with Vogue, Kim Jones, LV’s Artistic Director of Men’s Ready to Wear, explained how the Drake x LV collaborative song came about.
“Well, I sent a few pictures [from the collection] to Drake because he’s a big fan,” he said. “And then he wrote a song, which is going to be the music. Which is kind of amazing! It’s really, really good – I think he’s probably releasing it as a single. Because he loved it too. It’s so nice that Drake wrote a song.”
"I can't say no when you say please," Drizzy croons over the typically atmospheric production. "Lord forgive me, I can't take things slowly / I'm goin' on them once I get going."
This is Drake's first new track since the release of his playlist More Life back in February. Drake is also featured on DJ Khaled's hit "To the Max." Drake also made the 2017 Forbes Highest Paid Celebs List and signed R&B singer Plaza to his OVO Sound label.
