Drake lends his pen game to Melanie Fiona on “I Been That Girl.” Drizzy writes from the female perspective on the cautionary cut off Melanie’s sophomore album The MF Life, in stores Tuesday.
She and her fellow Canadian have history together, performing as teens in the group The Renaissance. “We go back to singing in cocktail lounges and basements,” Melanie told Rap-Up TV. “We’re just both so proud of each other.”
Drake joins in holy matrimony on the remix to “I Do,” Young Jeezy’s latest TM:103 single featuring Jay-Z and André 3000. The Toronto native dreams about a woman with potential wifey material on his verse.
“I just want a woman that looks 30 when she’s 81,” he raps. “Tell the reverend all we’re missing is his blessing ’cause before she pop the pu**y, she need me to pop the question.”

After Drake took a subliminal shot at him on Rick Ross’ mixtape single “Stay Schemin’,” Common fires back with a venomous verse.
“It bothers me when the gods get to acting like the broads/ Guess every team doesn’t come complete with ni**as like ours,” raps Drizzy over the Rich Forever cut featuring Rozay and French Montana.
The Chi-town MC adds some lethal bars to the song, referring to Drake as “That Hoe Ass Ni**a.” Listen and check out the lyrics below.
“Everybody know you sweet, what the problem is/ Don’t play dumb, I’m the one that acknowledged it/ Son of a bitch, I imagine what your father is/ She said, How you make your opponent/ Rapper of the moment, his style he don’t own it/ Acting all hard when he hardly like that/ Mess around and make me catch a body like that/ Don’t do it ’cause every song you make is really hoe music/ I heard you said wasn’t a bitch ’cause you sing, you a bitch ’cause you cling like a bitch that’s 18/ Can’t say my name, but rap about ni**a’s wife/ You show black and white tryna live a ni**as’ life/ I’m taking too long with this amateur guy/ You ain’t wetting nobody ni**a, you Canada Dry.”
