Christmas came a day early for Drake fans when a leak of his newest track ” pistols” surfaced on the 24th.

The Track: 

Produced by Diplo and Noah Shebib – the instrumental is smooth as hell. The rhythm is decidedly Spanish, with staccato guitar strumming and hand claps. The dissonant piano melody line furthers this feeling and sounds similar to the patch used on Camila Cabello’s “Havanna”.

And although Cuba and Columbia aren’t the same place, we think Drizzy might have been watching some “Narcos” when he came up with this one.

The Feeling:  Pablo Escobar kicking back with a cigar on the patio of his beautiful  Columbian mansion. There’s a slight breeze out, and he frowns wondering when his associates will turn on him and steal his cocaine empire out from under his feet.

Some fans weren’t as enthusiastic about the track, complaining that the track is 100% singing and no rapping.

But really- should they be surprised? After all, Drake WAS the first dude to successfully combine R&B singing with rapping. Oh well. Can’t please everybody.

The Lyrics: 

[Verse 1]
You say you want me, I don’t ignore you
You said it first, but I meant it more girl
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah
You got potential, I can’t explain it
You’re so persuasive, I made some changes
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

[Bridge]
Where were you this whole time?
Come and see me now, not another time
You should come see me on the regular
I don’t know if we’ll find a better time
Where were you this whole time?
Come and see me now, not another time
You should come see me on the regular
I don’t know if we’ll find a better time

[Chorus]
‘Cause I’ve been sleepin’ with a pistol in my bed
I’d rather have you here instead, I gotta get outta my own head
Don’t let me down, come here right now (Yeah)
Don’t let me down, come here right now

[Verse 2]
Grow up and face it, don’t keep me waiting
You love me how you love me, then just say it
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah
Girl what’s the hold up? Come take me over
You came the closest, we should be closer
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

[Chorus]
‘Cause I’ve been sleepin’ with a pistol in my bed
I’d rather have you here instead, I gotta get outta my own head
Don’t let me down, come here right now (Yeah)
Don’t let me down, come here right now

Lyrically, there’s nothing much going on. This appears to be another emotional “lost love” Drake song, which we’ve heard quite a few of before.

Perhaps some spicy Spanish Mamacita broke his heart.

Overall, the general reaction to the song doesn’t seem to be that strong in either direction. Most fans just notice that the track is “Spanish” sounding.

It’s not good, and it’s not bad.

Unfortunately, when it comes to making hits- the last reaction in the world you want for your song is “meh”.

We don’t think this song is going to be making waves anytime soon.

What’s your reaction to Drake’s latest tune?
