Today (July 17), DJ Khaled and Drake released their new collabs, Greece and Popstar. Both tracks feature his frequent collaborator Drake, who has been in on the DJ Khaled game since the start. Earlier this week, Khaled announced his twelfth studio album, Khaled Khaled, his follow-up to last year’s Father Of Asahd
Greece finds Drake grandstanding about a lit Greek vacation. Some of the lyrics of this track go as follows: Speedboats, baby, in Nikki Beach/Waves in my ears, smokin’ weed (Wait, wait). Whippin’ through the sand in a Jeep (Wait, wait)/All because of what I did on beats, baby/Life’s sweet, baby, iced out, baby/You just go get ready, we go out, baby/Long time lookin’ for the bounce, yeah/OZ had the bounce, yeah.
Popstar goes like this: Ayy, shawty with the long text, I don’t talk, ayy/Shawty with the long legs, she don’t walk, ayy/Last year I kept it on the tucked, ayy 2020, I came to f*ck it up, yeah,” he rhymes.
Khaled and Drake have been teasing us with new music for a while. Last month, DJ Khaled took to Instagram and teased all with a collaborative effort with images of owls signifying that new music will contain vocals from the 6 God. Khaled posted an image of an owl winking with a key in its mouth. He also uploaded a still video of him sitting in a chair with a painting on the wall of a blinking owl.
Drake is cooking up music of his own too. Prior to the release of the Dark Lane Demo Tapes mixtape, he revealed his new album is coming out this summer and gave some details on the project. He said, “So, last album, I went high volume. It did two sides, 20-something songs, which is a lot of songs. This album, I’ll probably make it a more realistic offering, something more concise.”
