Prepare for the Carter IV buzz to reach critical mass in five, four, three, two… On She Will, single numero quatro off the long-awaited project, Lil Wayne recruits Drake for a meditation on a mutual favorite topic: women. Over T-Minus’ whirring synths and pensive bell arpeggios, the Young Money megastar and his heavyweight protégé pay tribute to a fine female who’s willing give it up for the “realest n*ggas in the f*ckin’ game right now.” At least, that’s the ostensible theme; as usual, Weezy doesn’t hesitate to stray from the beaten path in search of a choice rhyme: “Some people hang you out to dry like a towel rack / I’m all about I, give the rest of the vowels back.” As for Drizzy? While the T-Dot hitmaker doesn’t get the opportunity to drop a verse of his own, there’s no arguing with the star power he brings to the record’s chorus. Time to weigh in: has She Will accomplished its goal of getting you hyped for Weezy’s latest opus? Either way, fans stateside will be able to cop this record as a digital download August 23, one week before the album (finally!) arrives on store shelves.
