Though not everyone is an immediate fan of Drake's Honestly, Nevermind album, one song, in particular, has quickly emerged as an obvious favourite – the infectious, fast-paced dance track, "Sticky."
On the just over four-minute-long title, the Canadian icon raps about everything from his relationship with his mother and wearing luxury jewelry from Frank Ocean's Homer to his bedroom activities and Young Thug's incarceration.
"Ayo Eric, bring them girls to the stage / 'Cause somebody's getting paid and / Free Big Slime out the cage," the father of one rhymes on the second verse. "Shawty try to play it cool but / Now she wish she woulda stayed 'cause / Every song that I made is / Ringin' like I got engaged (Yeah)."
At the very end, we hear a sampled snippet of the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh, to who Drake dedicated his album. "Like, we weren't supposed to come up with something this clean," he can be heard saying. "Like, something happened."
Stream "Sticky" on Spotify, Apple Music, or Soundcloud below, and tap back in with HNHH later for more hip-hop news updates.
Ayo Eric, bring them girls to the stage
'Cause somebody's getting paid and
Free Big Slime out the cage
Shawty try to play it cool but
Now she wish she woulda stayed 'cause
Every song that I made is
Ringin' like I got engaged (Yeah)
