Somebody Needs Attention: Drake Drops New Single ‘Girls Love Beyonce’
Because we don’t hear about Beyonce enough, Drake has given us this precious new gift by way of a song with the singer’s moniker in the title that has absolutely nothing to do with her. Confused? So are we. The most emo rapper around — arguably — has just dropped a new random track called “Girls Love Beyone” and it’s clear he’s back on that LL Cool J “I Need Love” tip.
Here are the opening lyrics:
I know girls love Beyonce, girls love to f**k with your conscious
Girls hate when ni**as go missing and shorty you ain’t no different
These days it’s hard to meet women, I feel like my love life is finished. I’ve been avoiding commitment, that’s why I’m in this position. I’m scared to let somebody in on this, no new friends, no no no no.
You know how this s**t goes. You got all these admirers that call your phone. You try to act like it’s just me but I am not alone. But if you’re alone, say my name say my name if no one is around you, say baby I love you…
I mean, he’d be better off naming the song “Destiny’s Child” since he sampled the whole chorus from their 1999 song. Oh and of course, you know he’s rap-singing those lines, although he brought along singer James Fauntleroy to help with the hook.
Overall, it’s a decent, typically emotional “I need a girl” Drake track that I’m sure will get plenty of play from the ladies — despite the odd name.
