Drake is Just Being Drake in New Leaked Song With Beyoncé

“All we ever talk about it me,” Drake mewls on “Can I,” a leaked song with Bey on the hook that hit the internet last night in full Drake confessional glory.

I am excited because based on the first trailer, the world of the shitty male EDM DJ is a strange plane with which Max is clearly intimately familiar, and I trust him to… » 5/19/15 1:30pm Tuesday 1:30pm
