“Red Button,” which dropped Thursday night alongside Drake’s new project “Scary Hours 3,” includes the lyrics: “Taylor Swift, the only black I rated/Only one could make me release the album a little longer.” late. / The rest of you, I treat you like you never made it.”
Drake and Swift are consistently two of the biggest names in music, often battling for the top spot on the charts when they release music around the same time. This happened last year with the release of Swift’s “Midnights” on October 21. Although Drake and 21 Savage’s joint album “Her Loss” was originally scheduled for October 28, it was ultimately delayed to November 4. The single “Anti-Hero” held firm at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, but “Her Loss” surpassed “Midnights” on the album chart upon its release. Despite the competition, Drake and Swift remain friends, and the rapper even shared a photo hugging the pop star in an April 2022 Instagram post.
Later in “Red Button,” Drake references his on-again, off-again feud with Kanye West, seemingly confirming that he’s back on. “Every time Yeezy called a truce, he blew my head up / Thinking we’re finally gonna make peace and start levitating,” Drake raps. “Realize it was all premeditated/Everyone was good to me, then everyone’s expression faded.”
Drake and West teamed up in 2021 for the “Free Larry Hoover” benefit concert in Los Angeles, calling for awareness and support for Hoover, who was convicted of murder and is currently serving six life sentences. But it didn’t take long for the two to have a rocky relationship again, with Drake taking shots at West on “Circo Loco” from “Her Loss,” as well as this year’s “Search & Rescue,” where the rapper sampled by Kim Kardashian. talking about her divorce from West.
Duck surprise announced on social networks On Thursday he announced that he would release “Scary Hours 3” that night, just weeks after the release of his latest album, “For all the Dogs.”
“I made those songs in the last five days,” he said in the post. “I didn’t have a single measure written for those songs the night ‘For All the Dogs’ came out. It’s not like I’m picking up on some unfinished shit. You know, this is just happening on its own. And who am I to fight it?
