UK drill rapper Headie One has released a new track with Drake.
The North London MC tweeted (July 19) that his collaboration with the multi-platinum artist, titled ‘Only You Freestyle’, would be released at 9pm BST on Tuesday. The track will mark the first time the two have worked on a song together – listen below now.
‘Only You Freestyle’ will be the first new music from Headie One since the release of ‘Rose Gold’ in May.
The rapper also released a mixtape with Fred Again, ‘GANG,’ earlier in the year. It featured contributions from FKA twigs, Jamie xx and Slowthai, among others. ‘Told’, a track from the mixtape, was later remixed by Brian Eno.
Last week saw Drake also release two new tracks with long-time collaborator DJ Khaled. The tracks will feature on Khaled’s upcoming 12th studio album, ‘Khaled Khaled.’
Drake is on a roll with his recent releases, collaborating with two artists who could not be more different, he is arguably one of the most diverse talents in the current Rap game.
An artist heavily inspired by UK Rap, first riding the Grime wave and now jumping on the Drill bandwagon, it’s interesting to see an across the pond talent jumping on the UK sound.
