Of all the samples on More Life, perhaps it’s most impressive that Drake managed to sample himself.
At the end of Jorja Interlude, a collaboration with London singer Jorja Smith, Drake samples the saxophone section from Doing It Wrong, a cut from his 2011 long-player Take Care.
The sample kicks in at 1:12 on Jorja Interlude and the original can be heard at 3:12 on Doing It Wrong. Thanks to WhoSampled for the timestamps. Listen to both tracks below.
Some keen Drake disciples spotted the subtle reference to the old Drake. Check out some of our favourite reactions below. Also, listen to the Moodymann DJ set which Drake utilised on More Life here.
