Oprah co-signs Lil Yachty’s Drake and DaBaby collab, “Oprah’s Bank Account”
“I loveeeeee it!” the mogul said.
After peaking on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 23, Lil Yachty’s “Oprah’s Bank Account” single has received another mark of recognition. Oprah Winfrey, who inspires the track’s title and hilarious video, told AP News that she approves of the song.
“I love it. I love it,” she told the outlet. “I loveeeeee it! Yes, I love it!”
The Drake and DaBaby-assisted single arrived last month as the first offering from Yachty’s forthcoming Lil Boat 3. In the track, Yachty pays homage to the television mogul in his chorus.
“I ain’t mad at ‘em, baby/ If I seen’t you out, me too would be up on you crazy/ Diamond in the rough, you look as good as Oprah’s bank account/ I just wanna take you out,” he raps.
In the song’s accompanying clip, Yachty portrays the parodying “Boprah,” as he invites Drake on his daytime talk show and interviews DaBaby.
“I haven’t seen the video,” Winfrey told AP. “But it’s nice to be in a Drake song no matter what — especially for your bank account, ok!”
Speaking with Complex, Yachty previously revealed how DaBaby and Drake had come to be featured on the single.
“DaBaby, he had a meet and greet in Atlanta, and I went… I hung out with him for three or four hours there, and I was like, ‘You want to go to the studio?’ He came and I played it, and he loved it,” Yachty told the outlet. “He thought it was a hit, so he hopped on it, which was really cool.”
“…I posted a snippet on my finsta. Drake follows my finsta, which is crazy,” he continued. “And he was like, ‘Yo, this is dope,’ which blew my mind. Of course that’s the homie, but him showing love like that, [was cool]. Then he [told me to] send it through. I didn’t know he was serious, but he got on it.”
Yachty also revealed that Lil Boat 3 is coming “very soon” and will provide an end to the series.
“…This whole album Lil Boat 3 is just fun. I think the song’s so good and catchy, my fans will appreciate it…They enjoy it, and it’s something for them. The album is just as fun,” he told the outlet.
Debuting at the No. 98 spot on the chart, “Oprah’s Bank Account” also secured Drake his 208th Hot 100 entry, making him the artist with the most Hot 100 chart entries of all time. Drizzy had previously been tied with the cast of “Glee” at 207 entries, but “Oprah’s Bank Account” pushed him over the edge.
