Following the success of “One Dance”, Drake and Nigerian rapper Wizkid have teamed up again for their new collaborative track “Hush Up the Silence”. The slow banger was premiered during Drizzy’s OVO Sound Radio Episode 37, which was hosted by Drake’s manager Oliver El-Khatib on Sunday, February 5.
Previously leaked two months ago, the track features a touch of skittering drums. Wizkid raps, “Starboy, call me number one/ When me tune drop, the girls, they bounce along,” before Drake continues rapping, “Jealous people around me, I need to change my life/ I just turn colder every time I try.”
Besides premiering the track, Oliver also provided an update on Drizzy’s much-anticipated “More Life” project. “Everything’s moving along nicely. As soon as it’s done, you guys will be the first to know,” he said. Last week, the Canadian rapper teased that his “playlist” project would be released between February and March, when he makes three more stops in Amsterdam for his “Boy Meets World” tour.
Although “Hush Up the Silence” wasn’t billed as a “More Life” cut, the track will most likely end up on the project. Listen to the new track at around the 60:15 and the rest of OVO Sound Radio Episode 37 below.
