‘What’s Next’

Did you know the track first appeared on Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf’s Instagram Live on February 21, 2021? The chorus has lyrics from the previously leaked and unfinished track, ‘What A Time To Be A Slime’ with Young Thug, according to Genius.

Here are the lyrics:

I'm makin' a change today
The liquor been takin' the pain away
I heard you was givin' your chain away
That's kinda like givin' your fame away
What's wrong with you?
I sit in a box where the owners do
A boss is a role that I've grown into
I love you to death but I told you the truth
I can't just be with you and only you

 



 


‘Wants and Needs’ with Lil Baby

Describing the concept behind the song, Genius says, “Drake and Atlanta rapper Lil Baby go back and forth on aspects of life involved in the balance of what is wanted versus what is needed. Between women, money, inner-circles, religion, and more, both rappers have to balance the importance of many things in life.”

Here are the lyrics:

Leave me out the comments, leave me out the nonsense
Speakin' out of context, people need some content
Niggas tryna keep up, shit is not a contest
Whippin' Benz concept
Heaven-sent, God-sent
Least that’s what my mom says
Proof is in the progress, money's not a object

 



 



‘Lemon Pepper Freestyle’ featuring Rick Ross

Explaining the song title, Genius said it explains Rick Ross affinity for lemon pepper wings, as he owns a variety of Wing Stop franchises and promotes the company via shouting out his favorite seasoning.

Here are the lyrics:

Godfather with a garden full of snakes
Call Porsche, time to give away a Wraith
Bricks boy, tryna turn 'em into bass
Big boy, I been tryin' by the Braves
Court room soundin' like I'm in the opera

 



 

Concept

The music video 'What's Next' which comes as a bonus for the fans is a tribute to his hometown Toronto. From the city's famous Ripley’s Aquarium to the singer rapping a whole verse in the subway system, showing off the downtown and the big screen of Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square, 'What's Next' is essentially a love song for the city. 

Buzz

Within hours of release, 'What's Next' has been called the official Toronto anthem. A fan said, "WHAT’S NEXT A TORONTO ANTHEM ALREADY HOLY SHIT GONNA SLAP THE FIRST I HEAR THIS IN THE CLUB!" Another said, "This What's Next Drake video makes me miss Toronto and I don’t even live there!" A fan quipped, "what’s next video is just a Yelp review of “top ten” places to visit in Toronto n I luv drake for it!" Another says, "Lemon pepper freestyle fucked me up!' 



 



 



 



 

Interestingly, Drake shouts out fellow rapper Lil Wayne on two new songs, 'What's Next' and 'Lemon Pepper Freestyle' — one of which was “I’m moving way too humble / Weezy handed it off, I still got no fumbles,” — and the other one was — “We all grateful for Weezy, but no one more than me.”

Fans couldn't keep calm and posted their thoughts within few minutes of its release. One said, "A GOAT knows A GOAT Made in Lagos taking off in the US. Its gon be on y'all faces for a long time...
