Drake has given his perspective on the next woman he’d like in his life in a song snippet shared on social media.
On Saturday (March 25), the OVO hitmaker shared a snippet of an untitled track on Instagram which was produced by BNYX. In the video, it appears as if an OVO affiliate is holding down the turntables while the the track plays in the background.
Rapping in a laidback flow over a driving, piano-laced beat, Drake can be heard detailing what he’s looking for in an ideal partner, including patience, trust, honesty and ambition; fame, however, isn’t a prerequisite to date Drizzy.
“I need someone to be patient with me/ Someone to get money, would not take it from me/ They don’t even need to be as famous as me/ I don’t think I meet ’em at the places I be/ But deep down I think about you all day, mami,” Drake spits on the snippet.
His verse continues: “I know I’m a pitbull, but dalé, mami/ I just wanna take you on a holiday, mami/ Say what’s on your mind, I’m a call away, mami/ Come and rescue me/ Take me out the club, take me out the trap/ Take me off the market, take me off the map/ I’m tryna hit the group chat and tell ’em.”

BNYX, who has previously produced for the likes of Yeat and Ty Dolla $ign, posted the snippet on Twitter while taking a trip down memory lane about his music journey thus far.
“I remember when I used to add the Drake acapellas to my beats to see if they was hard. Now look,” the Haitian-American beatmaker tweeted.
It’s no secret that the 6 God loves women, but in a recent interview with Lil Yachty, he expressed his regret for airing out so many ex-girlfriends on wax.
“I hate hearing that shit,” Drizzy said while reflecting on his lyrics about wanting to retire at age 35 on 2016’s “Weston Road Flows.”
“I heard it the other night. I think that and some times when I’ve said girls’ names in songs, maybe those are the two things that I look back on and I’m like, ‘Maybe I coulda done without, like, shitting on people for age or disrupting somebody’s life.’”
He continued: “The lyrics are never with ill intent, but I had somebody tell me one time, ‘You know, it’s not necessarily what you’re saying about me, it’s the fact that you said it.’”
Asked to expound on that concept, Drake explained that the conversation with his ex led him to think about what else might be happening in a former lover’s life when he decides to share details about their former fling in his music.
“Just in the sense like, ‘You don’t know what it does to me,’” he added. “‘You don’t know who my boyfriend is at the time or you don’t know what my family knows or doesn’t know. And if you express any form of discontent for me and call me by name in a song, then all of a sudden I’m left to pick up the pieces of my own life that I’ve tried to build up for myself.’”
He added: “So I’ve tried my best to stop doing that. But I like to be honest in music too, so that one’s a push and pull.”
