Drake’s new hashtag-worthy song “Girls Love Beyonce” is soon-to-be hit thanks to producer Noah “40” Shebib’s sample of the Destiny’s Child track “Say My Name.” Known for his sampling (and sometimes obsession) of female R&B stars such as Aaliyah, Drizzy took this track to new heights bringing the ’90s melody into 2013.
Imagine if he dusted off other DC staples for his upcoming album Never Was The Same. Check out our picks on the next page.
The opening vocal range can serve as the recurring sound in the background for this sample, allowing Drake to take the Natalie Cole “Inseparable” sample to another level of emotion.
Channeling his sound on “Marvin’s Room” would make for a great rendition of his Writing’s On The Wall track. Drake can trade verses with his conscious on stepping out (or not) on his girl.
On this DC3 ’90s hit Mr. Toronto can sprinkle his clever lyrics. He’d most likely keep the “so good” statement as a response to his haters by detailing that he still has the rap game in the palm of his hand.

The breakdown section of the song where the guitar plays its soothing role will serve as a nice segue for Drizzy to lay down his vocals.
This song’s production is right up Drake’s harmonic alley, from the trumpet to the funky bass strums. He can take an up-tempo approach with this one and leave DC’s harmonies plastered on wax for that old school vibe.
