Plain White T’s React with Confusion to Hearing Drake’s ‘Hey There Delilah’ Remix: ‘That’s Not Drake’

Musician Tom Higgenson attends the private unveiling of the Meyers Manx electric automobile at Little Beach House Malibu on August 08, 2022 in Malibu, California.; Drake attends the "Top Boy" UK Premiere at Hackney Picturehouse on September 4, 2019 in London, England.


Plain White T’s are confused by Drake’s “Hey There Delilah” remix.

On Wednesday, June 5, the pop-punk band — comprised of frontman Tom Higgenson, guitarist Tim G. Lopez, bassist Mike Retondo – bass, backing vocals and drummer De’Mar Randell Hamilton — shared an Instagram Reel of their reaction to hearing the Snowd4y and Drake’s parody remix of the band’s biggest hit “Wah Gwan Delilah,” which appeared on Soundcloud on Monday, June 3.

“Wah gwan, Delilah? Know I’m late ’cause there’s bare traffic/I just show my dog your ‘Gram/He said he knows a man that slapped it, I’m so cheesed/Your “mademoiselle” nights are geeked, I’m bent lowkey,” the Canadian musician, 37, raps in a prominent Jamaican accent on the track.

The update to their 2006 track by Drake ultimately shocked the band.

“The T’s were too stunned to speak…@champagnepapi,” Plain White T’s captioned the post, alongside a clip of the band listening to the track in what appears to be a conference room.

Like many music fans, the group thought the song was made using AI.

“That’s not Drake,” Higgenson, 45, says to the camera.

While listening to the Canadian rapper’s verse, he questions it, “It’s crazy that everybody thinks that it’s real. It seems like it’s very obvious. I don’t know. But it’s cool, whatever.”

Retondo, 43, agreed with his bandmate adding: “Yeah, there’s no f—ing way.”

Kendrick Lamar and Rapper Drake


Despite the surrounding skepticism around his remix, Drake appeared to confirm the track was real.

“@Snowd4y wake up the city,” he wrote in an Instagram Story with a screenshot of the song, per Complex.

“Wah Gwan Delilah,” if real, marks the second release since Drake’s beef with Kendrick Lamar seemingly cooled down.

On Tuesday, June 4, roughly a month after the “Hotline Bling” artist appeared to deliver his final response to his beef with the “Like That” hitmaker, 36, observant fans spotted that he had removed his diss tracks “The Heart Part 6” and “Family Matters” from his Instagram page. However, the two songs still remain on his YouTube channel and X page, where his initial diss, “Push Ups,” remains.

While it’s unclear whether the beef is officially over, it could be a sign that Drake is ready to release non-beef-related music again.

However, in early May, the “Slime You Out” performer posted a cryptic Instagram Story, where he teased, “Good times. Summer vibes up next,” alongside an illustration of a knight with a sword standing before an army.
