For all his braggadocio, Drake has a somber side, too, on songs examining twisted relationships and the insecurities they breed. Drizzy waves another such tale on new cut "Girls Love Beyoncé" – just posted to the October's Very Own SoundCloud page – pining for that special person "that'll help me think of someone but myself." Drake drives the point home with the unforgettable refrain from the Destiny's Child hit "Say My Name," enlisting singer James Fauntleroy for the hook.

Drake Releases New Single, 'Started From the Bottom'

Drake recently appeared on DJ Khaled's latest cut "No New Friends" and has also released two other originals – "Started From the Bottom" and "5AM in Toronto" – which could appear on his upcoming record Nothing Was the Same.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
