Drake – ‘One Dance’

Just as we’ve got ‘Hotline Bling’ out of our heads, the voice of Drake is back to grace our ears with ‘One More Dance’ featuring Nigerian singer-songwriter Wiz Kid and Philippian R&B artist Kyla. The afrobeat song samples dancehall inflections, containing a slowed down sample of the vocals and chord stabs from Kyla’s anthem ‘Do You Mind’.

The track arises with Kyla’s softly smoky vocals saying “Baby, I like your style.” Followed by a fast paced tropical thumping that remains throughout the duration of the song.

After a catchy chorus depicting the meaning on the song: experiencing as much of a spiritual connection as two people can have in a club. Wiz Kid makes his debut in this tune with his strong Nigerian accent that colours the R&B track with fun and exoticness.

The track comes to an end with a broken down, jumpy remix of Drake and Kyla’s vocals concluding with the line “higher powers taking a hold of me.”
