The mystery surrounding the Houston songstress’ return to the music fold has encapsulated discourse on social media. On Tuesday, fans finally got a glimpse at the plateau Beyoncé currently creates, and surprise, surprise, in all of the awe that came from the release of Break My Soul, Drake‘s ingenuity somehow surfaced as the main talking point.
You will remember that only a few days ago, the OVO star caught flak for releasing a surprise Dance album, Honestly, Nevermind, with only a single nod at Hip-Hop with Jimmy Crooks featuring 21 Savage.
It seems, the realisation of Beyoncé’s move toward this genre has adjusted fans’ attitude about Drake’s new music — and that’s where his genius stands out the most.
The Halo star’s new single, much like Variety sources hinted, is only a teaser into the sound fans ought to expect from Renaissance. On Break My Soul, these are the artists Beyoncé worked with in writing and producing the song:
- Tricky Stewart (he produced Single Ladies
Composers (who wrote it?)
- Adam Pigott (ghostwriter)
- Allen George (lyrics taken from Show Me Love sample by Robin S)
- Tricky Stewart
- Fred McFarlane (lyrics taken from Show Me Love sample by Robin S)
- Freddie Rose
- Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter
