The music industry is buzzing with the release of the new single “Who Told You,” a collaboration between British rapper J Hus and the renowned Canadian artist, Drake. The track, which is J Hus’s second release of the year following “It’s Crazy,” has already been hailed as the potential “song of the summer.”
J Hus, known for his unique blend of Afrobeat and rap, has been on a musical hiatus since the release of his acclaimed album “Big Conspiracy” in 2020. His return to the music scene has been marked by a significant collaboration with Drake, a move that fans have been eagerly anticipating since J Hus made a surprise appearance at Drake’s concert in London in 2019, shortly after his release from jail.
The track “Who Told You” is a vibrant, summer-ready anthem that challenges the status quo. With lyrics like “Who told you bad man don’t dance?/ Who told you gangsters don’t dance?/ Even with the weapon on my hip I dance,” J Hus makes a bold statement about breaking stereotypes and embracing the joy of life. Drake complements the track with his signature style, adding a flirtatious verse that further enhances the song’s appeal.
The collaboration has been well-received by fans and critics alike, with many praising the track’s fun and flavorful vibe. The song is expected to be a part of J Hus’s upcoming third album, rumored to be titled “Don’t Say Militancy.” The phrase, as explained by J Hus on his Instagram, signifies action over words, a theme that resonates in the new single.
Meanwhile, Drake continues to make waves in the music industry with his prolific output. Following the release of two albums in 2022, “Honestly, Nevermind” and “Her Loss,” a joint project with 21 Savage, Drake’s collaboration with J Hus marks another milestone in his illustrious career.
As the summer heats up, “Who Told You” is set to be a staple on playlists worldwide, bringing a unique blend of Afrobeat and rap to the global music scene. With its catchy rhythm and compelling lyrics, the track is a testament to the artists’ ability to create music that resonates with a wide audience while challenging conventional norms.
