So, arriving in hot pursuit of that Nicki Minaj collaboration we brought you last week, here’s yet another track from Drake’s slightly delayed, but still soon-to-be-released sophomore LP, ‘Take Care’…
His Young Money mentor, Lil Wayne, is on board for this one, joining Drizzy in full smooth-talking flow on suave slow-jam, ‘The Real Her’. Both are on top form, dripping honeyed words across this mellow mid-afternoon ballad, which sounds set to be one of the more understated ‘Take Care’ takes. Lil Wayne’s appearance is subtle and satisfyingly brief – he doesn’t try to milk his role or take over the show – but instead lets Drake hug the spotlight throughout.
With the due date for ‘Take Care’ set back to November 15, ‘The Real Her’ is an ideal calming agent for any impatient Drizzy fan. Stream it below, where you’ll also find a showreel-style trailer for the album.
