On Friday night (February 9), Tip debuted an unreleased track featuring Kendrick Lamar during his Beats 1 Radio show, Abstract Radio. Titled “Want U 2 Want,” the song finds K. Dot and Tip swapping vocal duties throughout the nearly 4:30-minute long offering.
Lamar also handles the track’s soulful hook, “The love of your name can only pertain to the flame I got in my vein/ I never complain when your name is mentioned/ I can’t hold back or restrain, it’s the flame I got in my vein/ I never complain, I just want you to want me/ Want you to want me.”
Elsewhere in the show, Tip played his cover of Elton John and Kiki Dee’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” with Demi Levato. Tip plays “Want U 2 Want” around the 1 hour 42-minute mark.
