Drake & 21 Savage sample Daft Punk’s “One More Time” for “Circo Loco” on their new album together

Daft Punk, as much sampled as their own work, might be one of the most sampled artists themselves. Hip-hop especially loves using loops and sometimes entire melodies from their tracks, as Drake and 21 Savage just did on ‘Circo Loco’ off their new collaborative album Her Loss.

The song references Tory Lanez’s alleged shooting of Megan Thee Stallion, in which Drake raps, “This bitch lies about getting shots but she’s still a stud/She doesn’t even get the joke but she’s still smiling .” The thinly veiled innuendo didn’t escape Megan, who, without naming names, cried out the lines on Twitter.

At least Daft Punk never got involved in any drama. Listen to the track below.
