Drake’s “Controlla” finally gets an official release. Leaked last month, the soft track with dancehall artist Popcaan dropped Monday. (Popcaan may be familiar to fans of last summer’s “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” from Jamie xx, which also featured Young Thug.)

The cut sounds closer to “One Dance” than the rap-heavy “Pop Style” and “Summer Sixteen”; the quartet of songs is expected to make it on Drizzy’s upcoming fourth studio album, Views From the 6.
