While it’s no great accomplishment, it looks like our instincts served us well as one of the surprise drops on Episode 62 of OVO Sound Radio was the premiere of the Drake and Lil Baby collaboration. While what we heard showed promise, we don’t have an official release for the time being. Right now, it seems that the tentative title of the cut is “Pikachu (No Keys),” and can be heard by way of a generous SoundCloud user.
Beats 1 did go on to confirm the track on their Twitter page, but that’s about all we’re getting for now. The cut was initially previewed in Lil Baby’s hometown of Atlanta during the album release party for OVO affiliate Preme, formally known as P Reign.
Produced by Wheezy, the cut definitely hits as we get a verse apiece from the two men while Baby handles the hook. Drake’s tendency to hop on the early wave of potential hitmakers in the South is more than indicative of the inspiration behind his decision to jump on Baby’s newest. Notably, we’ve seen that effect take place with Migos’ “Versace,” and most recently we’ve witnessed it on Blocboy JB’s “Look Alive,” and even Trouble’s “Bring It Back.”
This new song signals Lil Baby’s most significant drop of the year as he’s let loose on a few singles and plenty of guest appearances since unleashing a total of four projects last year, including his Perfect Timing, Harder Than Hard, Too Hard tapes in addition to his 2 The Hard Way collaborative effort with Marlo.
