Six years after Drake’s Kanye West-produced “You Know, You Know” first surfaced, the Toronto rapper has finally shared the official version.
The song was reportedly recorded for Drake’s chart-topping 2010 debut Thank Me Later. It ultimately didn’t make it onto the record, though West scooped credits for a handful of the project’s output: he produced “Show Me A Good Time” and “Find Your Love,” and directed the video for Drake’s Grammy-nominated “Best I Ever Had.”
The pair last teamed earlier this year, collaborating for both West’s The Life of Pablo and Drake’s Views. Drake helped craft TLOP’s “30 Hours” and “Facts,” while Kanye lent his production to Views‘ “U With Me?” West also initially appeared on “Pop Style” with Jay Z, though their verses were later cut.
The release of “You Know, You Know” comes on the heels of news that West and Drake may be working on a joint album. Listen to their previously unreleased collab below.
