- Follows a familiar pattern inspired by other Young Money singles
Guide Review - Drake - "Over" (Young Money/Universal Motown)
And that's not because "Over" is so good that you can't wait to savor it within the ebb and flow of a great album. No. It's more like, "The only logical explanation for a single this terrible is that he's saving the gems for his album." That's not a guarantee. What we know for certain is that Drake's latest collaboration with Boi1nda sounds like it was tossed off in 20 minutes.
A drum-anchored jam swings Drake's prepubescent-teen voice into all kinds of directions before bringing him back down to earth for his most atrocious chorus yet. Once you've had a helping of his smug self-satisfaction jeer served on a side of Lil Wayne-esque vocal nuance, you'll sigh too.
