Free Spirit
by Drake (featuring Rick Ross)

Album: Care Package (2011)
  • This song by Drake was released on the Canadian's October's Very Own blog on September 11, 2011. He introduced it with a quote from Princess Diana, "I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am."
  • Noah "40" Shebib produced the song, which features Rick Ross. The two rappers exchange macho boasts whilst on the hook, Drizzy tells his girl to "tat my name on you so I know it's real."
  • The horn-kissed sample is taken from "I Will Be Your Friend," a track from Sade's 1984 debut album, Diamond Life.
