Brent Faiyaz has joined forces with Drake for his new single, “Wasting Time.”
The dreamy track features synth-laced production by The Neptunes and marks the first offering from Faiyaz’s forthcoming EP. Over Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams’ atmospheric instrumental, Faiyaz sings to his lover about spending a little quality time together.
“If you’re gonna waste your time / Then waste your time with me / You can have all the space / More than you need,” he croons.
Drake also addresses his partner in the song, and hints at his impending musical return—he’s expected to drop his sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy, sometime this year. “The boy is back, I never turned my back / I just lapped ’em, so now all that they see is my back,” he spits.
Faiyaz released his last album, Sonder Son, in 2017. According to a press release, the 25-year-old is currently gearing up to release his new EP, which will follow 2020’s Fuck the World.
