In “Slime You Out,” it appears the two artists are playfully acknowledging these past rumors. The song features a back-and-forth exchange, with SZA singing, “You ain’t ’bout the shit you rappin’ about,” and Drake firing back with, “Sayin’ that I’m too guarded ’bout my feelings, who the fuck even asked you?”
This track provides a glimpse of what’s to come, as it serves as the debut single from Drake’s highly anticipated album, “For All the Dogs,” set to be released on September 22nd.

I’ll be dropping a new song for all of you this week. Yeah, yeah. What a time, what a time.”
But the surprises don’t end there. During his Detroit tour stop on July 8, Drake gave a subtle hint about a possible collaboration with none other than Nicki Minaj. He expressed his deep admiration for the incredibly talented artist, sharing, “It’s been a while since Nicki Minaj and I worked on a song together. I have immense love and respect for her.”
