Listen: Drake posts new track Draft Day on Soundcloud, namechecks Jennifer Lawrence and Chance The Rapper

Song title references soon-to-be NFL star Johnny Manziel

Drake has debuted a new song called Draft Day, which samples Lauryn Hill's Doo Wop and comes six months after the release of his album Nothing Was The Same.

Simple and direct, the new cut sees Drake rap over a looping sample, with no guest verses or chorus hooks.

Lyrics of note:

'And if I left this sh*t to chance I would have picked a name like Chance the Rapper / Yeah, no offense coz I don't know that n*gga'

'On some Hunger Games sh*t, I would die for my district / Jennifer Lawrence you can really get it. I mean for real, girl you know I had to do it for yah'

'Just hits, no Mrs / That's for the married folk' (reference to Jay Z and Beyonce or Kim and Kanye maybe?)

Drake posted the track on Soundcloud alongside a picture of its most referenced person, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.
