Olivia ft. Drake - Control

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
DJ Special K
Album:
Under the Radar Mixtape

Uh oh, looks like former G-Unit singer Olivia is the latest artist to manipulate Drake-Mania to their advantage. Ironically titled Control, this new cut from the songtress’ Under the Radar mixtape features exotic production from DJ Special K and raps courtesy of the only and only Drake “Drizzy” Rodgers. I hoped Drake’s new-found fame wouldn’t mean doing collabs with everyone and their mother like his Young Money mentor, and I’m not sure whether to be disappointed just yet because the rapper’s contributions seem dated

rappers vocals were actually stolen from an older unreleased record; how long has Olivia had these vocals? Adapting a rapid-fire flow that he used in his Replacement Girl days, Drake takes control of Control making it seem more like a Drake jam than an Olivia anthem as the Canadian heartthrob serves up two verses And as for Olivia, the Candy Shop crooner talks about not needing men; she even brags about not having to throw it in the bag since she “got Fab on speed dial.” Ironically, her performance on this one didn’t warrant any replay from me without Drake’s surrounding verses. But hey, forget me; let’s turn the volume up and hear what the Booth has to say.
