New Music: Drake & Beyonce – “Can I”

Earlier this year, music writer Ernest Baker had the opportunity to shadow Drake while working on a feature for the popular site FourPins. In the resulting article, Baker wrote that the Toronto native only had two songs completed for the long-awaited album Views From The Six, including one track that featured Beyonce and had been recorded some time prior to 2015. No one thought we would hear that song any time soon, but late last night a collaborative effort between Drake and Bey titled “Can I” found its way online.

Rolling Stone brought to our attention this morning, May 22, that Drake and Beyonce’s first collaboration since “Mine” was available for the world to enjoy. Though the source of the leak has yet to be identified, the quality of the track is on par with something you would hear on an album. It’s not a collaboration in the classic sense, with each pop star having their individual time to shine, but instead Beyonce’s presence works as more of an accompaniment to the minimalist production. Queen B doesn’t have a verse at all, just repeated samples of the lines “Can I” and “Baby” mixed in amongst romance-tinged verses from Drake. You can stream the track, in full, below.

Drake is supposedly releasing Views From The Six later this year, but at this time no release information has been made available. Follow UTG on Twitter for updates.
