On Wednesday, April 6, Drake gave props to seminal grime DJ Logan Sama for his help with his new U.K. funky-sampling track “One Dance.” In a post on Instagram, the Toronto rapper thanked the DJ for his "Strength and Guidance" and "for helping me on One Dance #VIEWS 🇬🇧."
Sama, who started out on pirate radio in the early '00s, has been a part of the grime scene since its inception, going on to host grime specialist shows on Kiss FM and BBC Radio 1Xtra. Last year, he curated a lengthy old school grime set for a notable Fabriclive release, and he currently has an equally sprawling mixtape out in collaboration with British clothing brand Trapstar. He also runs the website KeepinItGrimy.
This is not the first time Drake has looked to the U.K. for musical inspiration. He has long been a devotee of British culture and his relationship with grime crew Boy Better Know has been well-documented; click here for a brief recap of their relationship.
