Jessie Reyez is the latest artist to participate in Spotify’s ongoing Spotify Singles series, where they have artist record covers or new versions of songs at their studios around the world. Jessie Reyez, for her part, has given fans an updated rendition of her own song “Love in the Dark,” as well as a take on Drake’s 2011 single “Headlines.”

It feels like eons ago that Drizzy dropped his Take Care album, and so if you haven’t listened to “Headlines” in a minute, this should take you back. To be sure, it’s still a fresh update to the record– with Reyez singing over a piano-laden instrumental– but she does mimic Drake’s flow (with a few additional twists and turns along the way, though) and keeps the lyrics intact. Extra flares to the song, like her haunting background vocals, make this song all brand new.

Jessie Reyez – Headlines (Drake Cover)


I might be too strung out on compliments, overdosed on confidence
Started not to give a fuck and stopped fearing the consequence
Drinking every night because we drink to my accomplishments
Faded way too long I’m floating in and out of consciousness
And they sayin’ I’m back, I’d agree with that
I just take my time with all this shit, I still believe in that
I had someone tell me I fell off, ooh I needed that
And now they wanna see me pick back up, well where’d I leave it at
I know I exaggerated things, now I got it like that
Tuck my napkin in my shirt, ’cause I’m just mobbin’ like that
You know good and well that you don’t want a problem like that
You gon’ make someone around me catch a body like that
No, don’t do it, please don’t do it
‘Cause one of us goes in and we all go through it
And Drizzy got the money, so Drizzy gonna pay it
Those my brothers, I ain’t even gotta say it
That’s just something they know

They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know

I be yelling out, “Money over everything, money on my mind!”
Then she wanna ask when it got so empty
Tell her I apologize, happened over time
She says they missed the old me, girl don’t tempt me
If they don’t get it, they’ll be over you
That new shit that you got is overdue
You better do what you supposed to do
I’m like “Why I gotta be like that?” but still I can’t deny the fact that it’s true
Listen to you expressing all these feelings
Soap opera rappers, all these rappers sound like All My Children
And that’s who you thinking is probably ’bout to make a killing
I guess it really is just me, myself and all my children
You know that they ain’t even got it like that
You gon’ hype me up and make me catch a body like that
‘Cause I live for this, it isn’t just a hobby like that
When they get my shit and play it, I ain’t even gotta say it, they know

They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know
Yeah they know, yeah they know, yeah they know
They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know
