Young Thug’s contribution to Jamie xx’s “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” proved that he was a good fit for that island feel, so it makes sense that he, alongside fellow Atlantan rapper Twice, would remix the dancehall-tinged single off Drake’s Views, “Controlla.”
With “No Wendy’s” (which does feature some shots fired at beloved fast food chain, Wendy’s), Thugger and Twice make it their own by tweaking the production in favor of a more melodic backdrop and a hook that sees Young Thug at his sing-song best. Lyrically, the remix keeps with Drake’s theme of his muse. Considering that Young Thug is on this remix, though, it’s not without its moments like, “I’m on Cleveland like I’m Kyrie Irving / same place I caught my first STD.”
Young Thug has been keeping busy (as per usual), appearing on a number of collaborative efforts, including Rich The Kid’s “Ran It Up,” Usher’s “No Limit,” and Travi$ Scott and Quavo’s “Pick Up The Phone.”
