OVO Sound leader Drake has been on a 2018 winning streak with the release of his “God’s Plan” smash hit, celebrated (and now hilarious) assist on Migos’s “Walk It Talk It,” and the announcement of his soon-to-be fifth studio album.
According to some Drizzy fans, his run may have come to an end when he pulled up with a remix on N.E.R.D. and Rihanna’s funkadelic hip-hop “Lemon” banger. Drake borrowed the opening line from RiRi’s original bars to fire up his verse about his yellow foreign whip, “money 3D printin’,” and other gems of his OVO boss lifestyle.
Normally, a Drizzy feature on any certified hit would be cause of celebration and welcomed with open arms. But fans are somewhat on the fence about this one, especially since his bars are matched up beside those of the bad gal’s.
