Over the weekend, Jamaican star Popcaan liberated his latest project FIXTAPE, his second to be released through Drake’s OVO Sound/Warner imprint. As is expected, the Dancehall/Reggae artist also collaborated with the Toronto emcee — not just on one, but two different tracks on the release. The first fans get to hear on the LP is the Nineteen85-produced cut “TWIST & TURN,” a genre-bending cut that also features assistance from PARTYNEXTDOOR, making it a proper October’s Very Own posse cut that sees Drizzy back on his best melodic patois vibes:
“Your body drive mi crazy, your body need a license f’it, your body is too tight and neat, anybody who got eyes can see, she just wanna dance and tease, she just wanna dance and tease me.../”
The other single is titled “ALL I NEED,” which sees the collaborators on an even more laid-back soundscape courtesy of Noel Cadastre. It’s the perfect beat for Drake to sing about the subject matter many of his fans know him best for:
“Sentimental and your body is righteous, tight as I want it, tight as my lips when I lock them in silence/
And your cellphone is ringin’ and you’re worried ‘bout somethin’, and you’re walkin’ outside on me now, which side are you on again?”
Both tracks were heard by fans prior to the release of FIXTAPE. Both Popcaan and close affiliate OVO Mark revealed “TWIST & TURN” on separate Instagram Live streams in July, while Drake blessed his IG viewers with a snippet of “ALL I NEED” a few months ago.
