Yes, the two singers are together again to spread the magic of their voices. It is the second time they have come together and it’s their second collaboration.
In 2013, Drake appeared on “Mine,” a ballad on Beyoncé’s self-titled album. Now Bey has returned the favor by appearing on “Can I,” a track rumored to appear on Drake’s forthcoming album Views From the 6. The song is minimalist to the point that it’s quite possibly unfinished—moody and brooding and in anything but a hurry.
Beyoncé fans hoping to hear the diva busting out her singing chops won’t find them here. Her contribution is limited to a few spoken words repeating throughout the track: “Can I, baby? Can I, baby?” It’s unclear exactly what she’s asking permission to do, but the few verses Drake raps touch on the tension in a relationship when one person opens up and the other remains closed off.
