Drake surprised fans on Saturday night by dropping a pair of tracks titled “When to Say When” and “Chicago Freestyle.”

For “When to Say When” Drake samples a classic, “Song Cry” by JAY-Z. The beat switches up for “Chicago Freestyle,” which sees the 6 God interpolate Eminem’s “Superman” when he raps: Women they come they go / Saturday through Sunday Monday / Monday through Sunday, yo.”

The songs arrive alongside a Theo Skudra-directed visual. In the video, Drake hits up several spots in New York, including the Brooklyn Bridge and JAY-Z’s old stomping grounds of Marcy Projects, he also pops by his jeweler and previews some icy pieces and hits up the studio with 40.

In the second cut of the video, a brooding Drake heads home to Toronto where he gives a tour of his massive mansion dubbed “The Embassy” and cruises through the city in his custom OVO Rolls-Royce. Watch the video below.

It’s unclear whether these tracks are cuts from Drake’s upcoming album or whether they’re loosies. Indeed, both songs were uploaded to SoundCloud rather than streaming services.
