Physical attraction is all well and good, but it’s even better when a bangin’ body comes with a genuinely impressive person inside. On Make Me Proud, a new single recently premiered by Funkmaster Flex on his Hot 97 program, Young Money megastar Drake pays tribute to a girl who has both his love and his deep respect. In addition to celebrating her formidable mental powers, he gives her big ups for standing strong against the advances of pushy men “You see n*ggas comin’ on too strong; that’s why you wanna have no sex, why you wanna protest, why you wanna fight for your rights.” Joining the T-Dot phenom over T-Minus’ understated instrumental, a slinky blend of hi-hat driven percussion and swirling synth arpeggios, labelmate Nicki Minaj boasts about her business savvy (along with her double-Ds) in a schizophrenically-flowed guest verse. Featuring this banger and much, much more, Drake’s highly-anticipated sophomore set, Take Care is now set to drop November 15 (pushed back from its former release date of October 24, Drizzy’s birthday).
