The synth-laden “God’s Plan,” produced by frequent collaborators Yung Exclusive, Boi-1da, Cardo, and Noah “40” Shebib, charts Drake’s ascent in the music world despite people “wishin'” for “bad things” to happen. “God’s plan / I can’t do this on my own / Someone watching this shit close,” Drake sings on the chorus.
The latter track – a chorus-less treatise produced by Boi-1da – hones in on the pleasures of Drake’s jet-settling lifestyle, as well as its occasional downside. “Violating the treaty of Versailles / ‘Champagne’ is the alias but no cease and desist in I / I refuse to comply with regulations / Listen to heavy metal for meditation / No silence,” Drake raps, later stating that 2017 was “the year I lost a J.Lo.”
“God’s Plan,” which partially leaked in late 2017, and “Diplomatic Immunity,” mark Drake’s first solo songs since he unveiled his “Signs” in June 2017 for a Louis Vuitton fashion show.
