Listen: Lil Wayne taps Drake for new 'Carter IV' single 'She Will'
Finalized tracklist includes Young Money cohort, Nas, TechN9ne, T-Pain, John Legend, everyone
It's raining men on the new album with guest spots from Nas, TechN9ne, John Legend, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Bun B, Jadakiss... add just a couple more, and you'd have yourself a Drake album! Bad-um-bum!
Speaking of Drizzy, he too shows up on the set, on this latest single to emerge. "She Will" is a slower jam than we're used to hearing, but lyrically exactly what you'd expect a song called "She Will" to sound. What will she do? Let Tunechi explain it to you, with Drake holding down the looping hook. It's a case of mentor taking after the likes of his mentee. It mostly works, or at least it works a lot better than Lil Wayne's other emo attempt, "How to Love." And, yes, that cut made the, erm, cut.
And I can't put my finger on it, but that light synth line is ringing a bell... it's like the creep-out music from video game "Phantasmagoria..." hardly fodder for mood music, but it's Weezy's circus, we're just watching it.
Harry Belafonte-sampling single "6 Foot 7" also is on the tracklist. "Tha Carter IV" has a Aug. 29 release date.
