The Kid LAROI has released a cover of Drake’s 2011 song, “Shot for Me,” exclusively for Spotify’s Singles series.
With the help of producers Joe Grasso and Eric Lagg, the Australian rapper transforms the moody Take Care cut into a tender piano ballad. And just like Drizzy, LAROI also name-drops his exes on the opening: “It’s a shame you didn’t keep it / Oh Katy, oh Noah, I know that you gon’ hear this.”
“I chose Drake because he’s my favorite artist,” LAROI said in a statement. “‘Shot for Me’ is one of my favorite songs off of one of my favorite projects and that made it really easy for me to do.”
The cover also dropped alongside an acoustic version of his hit song “Without You.” It appeared on the deluxe edition of his debut mixtape Fuck Love, which also included the songs “Tragic” and “So Done.”
