Drake had plenty to celebrate on Thursday when his beloved Toronto Raptors won their first-ever NBA Championship, and had a special surprise — two of them, actually — in honour of the team’s momentous win.
To celebrate the Raptors’ victory at this year’s NBA Finals, Drake dropped two new songs: “Omerta” and “Money In The Grave,” the latter a collaboration with Rick Ross.
The new tracks are the first of the year for Drake as a lead artist, and his only new music since his appearance on a new remix of Summer Walker’s “Girls Need Love”, which came out in February, and his recent collab with Chris Brown, “No Guidance”.
Drake teased the new tracks on social media shortly after the end of the Raptors’ win at Game 6, and late Friday night announced that the new tracks had finally arrived.
“This is poetic, you just gotta watch it happen,” an emotional Drizzy said in an interview after the game. “The 6 in six, Kyle Lowry with the ring, Kawhi Leonard bringing in chips to the city… I want my chips with the dip, that’s all I know.”
Added Drake: “We did this off of heart, we did this off of love. We willed this into existence. We manifested this.”
