Drake is letting bygones be bygones this holiday season.
The 33-year-old Canadian rapper released a present for fans just in time for the holidays: A new song, titled “War,” along with an accompanying snow-filled music video, shared just after midnight on Dec. 24. Drake skis and rides snowmobiles in a nighttime winter wonderland while sharing his gripes with shallow social media use (“You… spend too much time on captions, not enough time on action”) and hinting at feuds he’s been wrapped up in over the years.
“Everyone I know has code names, anyone I’m beefin’ with is a no name,” he raps.
He seemingly reveals squashed beef with The Weeknd, a Canadian singer who’s been compared to Michael Jackson, by noting he “just had to fix things” with a fellow Canada native, “the boy that sound like he sang on ‘Thriller.'”
The two have been wrapped up in various squabbles over the years, most recently when rumors arose that Drake was involved with model Bella Hadid, The Weeknd’s ex-girlfriend.
“I want my baby to have your eyes/ I’m going against my own advice/ Should I do New York? I can’t decide/ Fashion week is more your thing than mine,” he rapped in his last album, 2018’s “Scorpion.” Hadid told fans on social media they were just friends.
The new song, created as a part of a multi-artist mixtape, does not appear to be pegged to an upcoming album. Drake told fans earlier this month during an appearance at a DaBaby show he was working on finishing his next album “so we can turn up in 2020.”
