Drake Ft. PartyNextDoor – Ratchet Happy Birthday
Off his Scorpion album, Drake taps OVO singer PartyNextDoor for a brand new single for the album. Ratchet Happy Birthday.
“Ratchet Happy Birthday” tells the story of a woman led through the motions while anesthesia comes into effect. The song is co-written by PARTYNEXTDOOR with the participation of all OVO backstage engineers. I guess sharing conundrums with your production staff can only lead to a group therapy session. I’d imagine everybody on the team played both sides of the flip: caped crusader & distant lover in a vague romantic encounter. Feelings aside, Drake tries to work out the kinks of a drifting relationship on “Ratchet Happy Birthday.” Sometimes distance can be so unyielding, you need to make up for it with tremendous gift baskets. Don’t wait for anniversaries to get your feelings across.
Maybe the shtick has grown old to you, but this song will inevitably speak to someone in a moment of need. Drake did a great job of canvasing all the angles on Scorpion, maybe less dramatically than we’d planned for.
