Listen: Lil Wayne taps Drake for new 'Carter IV' single 'She Will'
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.
