Lil Yachty, Drake, & DaBaby Share New Song “Oprah's Bank Account”
- American rapper Lil Yachty teamed up with Canadian rapper Drake and American rapper DaBaby to release a new song “Oprah's Bank Account” on March 9th. Produced by Earl on the Beat.
The accompanying music video was directed by Julien Christian Lutz.
The track is first single off of Lil Yachty's upcoming fourth studio album “Lil Boat 3”.
Originally, he wanted American singer Lizzo to appear on the track. But their schedules did not match up.
Lil Yachty told Complex about the song in an interview, “I did the song by myself. DaBaby, he had a meet and greet in Atlanta, and I went. I didn’t necessarily know he was going to like this song or want to get on it. I didn’t play it for him and he hadn’t heard it. But I hung out with him for three or four hours there, and I was like, “You want to go to the studio?“ He came and I played it, and he loved it. He thought it was a hit, so he hopped on it, which was really cool. That was maybe three or four days after I made it. It’s so crazy because I originally wanted to put Lizzo on it. I sent it to her, and I don’t want to say she didn’t like it, because she never got back to me on it, which was cool. I understand people are busy. And then I posted a snippet on my finsta. Drake follows my finsta, which is crazy. And he was like, “Yo, this is dope,” which blew my mind. Of course that’s the homie, but him showing love like that, [was cool]. Then he [told me to] send it through. I didn’t know he was serious, but he got on it.”
- The album “Lil Boat 3” is coming soon. “I think this whole album, Lil Boat 3, is just fun,” Lil Yachty said. “My album’s done. My album is coming very soon. I haven’t spoken on it yet, but it’s coming. It’s ending the trilogy to my Lil Boat series.”
