DJ Khaled – For Free (ft. Drake) [Single Premiere]
Hip-hop mogul DJ Khaled is readying another star-studded album, his ninth titled ‘Major Key’, and premieres the anticipated Drake collab ‘For Free’ serving as the lead single.
Receiving its first play exclusively on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show earlier today, ‘For Free’ is an island-infused, hip-hop anthem with a knocking production helmed by the OVO team of Nineteen85 and Jordan Ullman, one half of Majid Jordan. Drake showcases his malleable delivery, flowing over the booming beat effortlessly, “Is it just me?/ Is this sex so good I shouldn’t have to fuck for free?” he spits amongst referencing Too $hort’s ‘Blow the Whistle’ and Kendrick Lamar’s ‘For Free?’ on what is likely to be another hit for the Canadian rapper.
During the accompanied interview with Zane Lowe, DJ Khaled praised his collaborator, “To work with Drake is always a special moment for me, and I’m very grateful for it.
It’s gonna be every female’s favorite record and every hustler’s favorite record,” he added. “When Drake and Khaled come together, it’s always the biggest anthems.” Listen to ‘For Free’ below:
