Drake Samples Jodeci on 'How About Now'

Is OVO rapper leaking new music under an alias?

A new Drake song leaked Sunday (Oct. 19) courtesy of a teenager from Marietta, Ga., reports The Fader. The track, “How About Now,” was uploaded to the user’s SoundCloud and yanked down (but not before it was posted to other sites).

“How About Now” samples Jodeci’s “My Heart Belongs to You” and could very well be a cut from his forthcoming Views From the 6 album, as the user claimed. The song, which is about a girl that didn’t want him back before he blew up, opens with a voicemail from a woman that sounds like Nicki Minaj. 

Whoever the girl is, she made a mistake by pushing Drizzy away. He raps, “You ain’t really f**k with me way back then girl, how about now?/'Cuz I’m up right now, And you suck right now/You thought you had it all figured out back then girl, how about now?”

Drake hasn't said a word about "How About Now" somehow creeping its way online, or how a teenager in Georgia would have access to his previously unheard music. This is his second song leak, behind the Views From the 6 title track in August.
