Here’s The Song Drake Samples On “One Dance”

Drake shared a pair of new singles today. "One Dance" flirts with the dancefloor, mixing the piano-house leanings of an older Drake tune like "Take Care" with the MC's more recent interest in the lighter textures of artists like Popcaan and Wizkid, who Drake co-signed last summer. Wizkid is credited on "One Dance" along with a singer named Kyla.

As Fact and Fool's Gold co-founder Nick Catchdubs both point out, a U.K. funky remix of a Kyla song is the source of the lilting vocal and keyboard stabs that anchor "One Dance." Listen to the Crazy Cousinz rework of Kyla's "Do You Mind" below.
