Just days after dropping off two new singles with DJ Khaled, Drake connected with U.K. drill rapper Headie One for their hard-hitting collab, “Only You Freestyle.”  

Fans had less than a day to prepare after Headie One posted on Instagram that his collaboration with Drake would be released on Tuesday (July 21) at 9 PM. 

In a statement obtained by Pitchfork, Drake discussed collaboration, stating, I had to go hard, especially on a track with one of the best drill artists in the world...Scratch that — the best drill artist in the world.”

The track marks the first time that the two artists have worked together. 

Over the M1onthebeat-produced beat, Drake and Headie One rattle off verses as they wander through a garage filled with a line of luxury cars and their respective crews. 

“Only You Freestyle” is the latest addition to his string of recent releases. The 33-year-old surprise-dropped his Dark Lanes Demo Tapes EP back in May, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. The mixtape came embedded with the track “Demons” that spotlighted New York’s burgeoning drill scene. 

Following that, OVO honcho teased via Instagram that his much-anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion is dropping sometime soon this summer. This new single with Headie One could be a prelude of what’s to come.
