“Trophies” was originally teased at a few of his shows on his recent Would You Like A Tour, and was asked after by Elliott Wilson on Twitter with Drake teasing its release. Finally, it officially went up on Drake’s Soundcloud this morning. It’s slightly more “HYFR” Drake than we heard on his 2013 album Nothing Was the Same, as he notes in the first verse, this track is “not a love song/ it’s a f*** a stripper on a mink rug song.”
As a special pre-New Year’s Eve gift, listen to the amped up victory lap “Trophies” below, produced by Hit-Boy and co-produced by Hagler & Drake’s go-to man Noah “40” Shebib.
