Brent Faiyaz is back and he’s brought Drake.
The R&B crooner enlists the 6 God for his summer-ready single “Wasting Time,” produced by none other than The Neptunes.
Before it hits streaming services tonight, they have revealed the cover art, which was inspired by the artwork for Pharrell’s 2006 debut album In My Mind and features an illustrated Brent and Drake.
Over the breezy Neptunes beat, the two serenade the ladies. “If you gonna waste your time, then waste your time with me,” sings Brent.
The Certified Lover Boy turns on the charm, while referencing “The Queen’s Gambit” (“New piece around my neck is chess games, ’cause shawty stay with calculated moves like Beth Harmon”), Prince (“Swear I’m more ‘Purple Rain’ Prince than Prince Charming”), and Aaliyah (“Only time I play the ‘Back & Forth’ is Aaliyah record”).
“Wasting Time” follows Brent’s previous single “Show U Off,” which dropped in honor of Women’s History Month in March.
Drake recently collaborated with Migos, Nicki Minaj, and Young Thug while he readies his long-awaited album Certified Lover Boy, which is set to arrive by the end of summer.
