Drake, ‘The Real Her’ Feat. Lil Wayne – Song Review
The Internets are going nuts over this newly-leaked Drake song called 'The Real Her.' It's kind of strange of Drizzy to drop a new track so quickly since he released 'Make Me So Proud' nearly a week ago. Nevertheless, there's no official confirmation if the song will appear on 'Take Care' or not.
The piano-driven R&B ballad will most likely remind listeners of his song 'Houstonalantavegas' from his 2009 'So Far Gone' mixtape. On the track, Drake sings of finding a new love and shouting out the beautiful girls living in Houston, Atlanta and Las Vegas. The Canadian singer tells his prospective lover, "Live for today, plan for tomorrow, party tonight, party tonight / You got your guards up, I do too, there's things we might discover / 'Cause you got a past and I do too, we're perfect for each other."
Drake's boss, Lil Wayne, provides a short but lucid verse about cautiously falling in love with a one-night stand. He raps, "'Cause to her I'm just a rapper, and soon she'll have met another / So if tonight's an accident, tomorrow we'll recover / And I know I'm not supposed to judge a book by its cover / I don't wanna be in the blind, but sometimes I Stevie Wonder about her."
'The Real Her' sounds like a sequel to 'Houstatlantavegas.' If the song is indeed a leak from his 'Take Care' album, then Drake needs to plug it up immediately, especially since he turned in the album two days ago. In any case, 'The Real Her' is a cool ballad that should hold fans over until the Drake onslaught in November.
