Drake Name-Checks Taylor Swift on New EP: ‘Only One Could Make Me Drop the Album Just a Little Later’

Drake gave a special shout out to a pop megastar on his latest project.


The “Rich Baby Daddy” performer, 37, praised Taylor Swift on his new EP, Scary Hours 3, which was released on Thursday at midnight.

Drake name-checks the “Labyrinth” singer, 33, on his new song “Red Button” with the lyrics: “Taylor Swift the only n—- that I ever rated/ Only one could make me drop the album just a little later/ Rest of y’all, I treat you like you never made it.”

Swift isn’t the only artist Drake references on his latest song. He also mentions Kanye West and their on-again-off-again feud over the years.

“Every time that Yeezy called a truce, he had my head inflated/ Thinkin’ we gon’ finally peace it up and get to levitatin’,” the Canadian artist raps. “Realize that everything premeditated/ Everyone was good with me, then everyone expression faded.”

Drake and Swift have had a friendship over the years that has also sparked music collaboration rumors. Back in 2016, Swift attended Drake’s birthday party. That same year, Swift hilariously fell off a treadmill in an ad for Apple Music while rapping Drake and Future’s “Jumpman.” Drake then danced to Swift’s hit “Bad Blood” in a different Apple Music commercial. Last year, the MC shared a sweet throwback photo of him hugging Swift.

On Thursday, Drake revealed he was releasing his surprise EP, Scary Hours 3, with a post on Instagram, featuring the caption “Scary Hours 3. Tonight at midnight.”

Alongside the caption, the “God’s Plan” musician posted a nearly two-minute video, which was filmed at the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto.


“I feel no need to appease anybody. I feel so confident about the body of work I just dropped that I know I can go and disappear for whatever. Six months, a year, two years,” Drake said in a voiceover over a visual of a car from a distance driving through the streets of the rapper’s Canadian hometown.

“Though I’m not into the lengthy, super-lengthy disappearances just for the sake of mystery,” he laughed as he heads into the empty arena before he’s handed a glass of red wine by a valet. “You know, ultimately it’s coming to me in a way that I haven’t experienced since [2015’s] If You’re Reading This [It’s Too Late] where it’s just kind of like I feel like I’m on drugs.”

He continued: “I feel like I’m in that mental state without doing anything. Who am I to fight it?”

Drake then revealed that he wrote the EP’s songs in the last five days and he didn’t have “one bar written” for his forthcoming EP when he released his most recent album, For All the Dogs, last month.
