The rapper's latest verse has got people talking.
Following a lengthy hiatus, OVO Sound Radio returned on Saturday night and Drake ensured that he kicked off the new season with a bang.
The Canadian rapper dropped his own verse on N.E.R.D's Rihanna-assisted song 'Lemon', which premiered during the show.
"Got the nerve to want a Bentley for her birthday / I said, "Maybe I could rent it for your birthday" spits Drizzy over the bouncy beat.
Listen to the remix below:
As expected, fans immediately took to social media to share their live reactions to the surprise rework of the Pharrell-produced banger, which was released in November last year.
And while some were feeling Drizzy's contribution, others couldn't help but compare it to Rihanna's original powerhouse bars that follow.
"Joking aside, Rihanna still outrapped Drake on the Lemon remix," wrote one Twitter user.

First Beyonce outrapped Hov on a track & now Rihanna outrapped Drake, incase you were wondering how 2018 is going— The Lightskin Kanye (@TseaTaughtMe) 18 March 2018
why’d Drake put himself on a song, and still had Rihanna outrap him?— isaac (@Im_Just_Isaac) 18 March 2018
how you get outrapped on a remix? you know the verse already!
People went as far as labelling Drizzy's verse as 'horrible', 'hot trash' and 'atrocious'.
Meanwhile, the OVO hitmaker recently starred in the 70's inspired music video for his Migos collaboration 'Walk It Talk It'.
