  • Lyrics
  • This brooding, sparse ballad was debuted by Drake during his October 3, 2015 appearance during the OVO Sound Radio show on Beats 1.
  • The song is a duet with Beyoncé. It finds Drake imploring, "Before I turn the lights out, tell me who the f--k you wanna be." Bey simply repeats the "Can I, baby?" phrase, her chants interplaying with the drum cadence.
  • The pair previously teamed up in late 2013 on "Mine", a track from Beyoncé's self-titled album.
