Summer Sixteen” is a promotional street single from Canadian recording artist and rapper Drake. It is the first promotional single from the highly anticipated and the long awaited studio of his, Views from the 6.

The single, “Summer Sixteen” was released via social media networks (such as YouTube among many others) in early February 2016. The song premiered on OVO Sound Radio and was released for digital download on January 30, 2016. ‘Summer Sixteen’ was released on Drake’s official #Drake YouTube channel as a single on February 6th 2016.

It was produced by Noah “40” Shebib, Boi-1da, Cubeatz, Brian Bennett and The Winans. The track features two dynamically different productions much like a previous song from Drake, ‘0 to 100 / The Catch Up‘.

The song samples the outro of the song “The Question Is” by The Winans and contains a slowed down sample of the song “Glass Tubes” by Brian Bennett. It features uncredited vocals by DJ Khaled.

“Summer Sixteen” debuted at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 on January 30, 2016, selling 215,000 downloads in its first week; these sales became the highest debut sales of Drake’s career.

Despite “Hotline Bling” blowing up it is a non-album single, along with his other singles “Charged Up“, “Back To Back (Meek Mill Diss)”, and “Right Hand“.

Lyrics for Drake – ‘Summer Seventeen’

[Intro: Drake]
Looking, looking, looking
Looking, looking, looking
Looking, looking
Looking
Looking

[Hook: Drake]
Looking for revenge
All summer sixteen
All summer sixteen
Playing dirty not clean
Out in front of Four Seasons
Looking like a damn football team
All in the same thing
All repping one thing
Looking for revenge

[Verse 1: Drake]
To do what you couldn’t do
Tell Obama that my verses are just like the whips that he in
They bulletproof
Minus twenty we in Pitfield
That Kai’s kitchen in a Canada Goose
Famous as fuck but I’m still in the cut when they round up the troops
I’m just a sicko a real sicko when you get to know me nigga
I let the diss record drop, you was staying right below me, nigga
We must have played it a hundred times, you was going to bed
Why would I put on a vest? I expect you to aim for the head
I coulda killed you the first time
You don’t have to try to say it louder nigga
Trust, we heard you the first time
It’s nothing personal I would have done it to anyone
And I blame where I came from
And I blame all my day ones
You know Chubbs like Draymond
You better off not saying nothing
Them boys they a handful
Then I hit ‘em with the Hotline
Chris Breezy with the dance moves
Mo-G with the dance moves
Ave Boy with the dance moves
Jimi Hendrix with the solo
Those the strings that you can’t pull
Yeah, and I could really dish it out
Come and get it from the source
Fuck with all the word of mouth
Golden State running practice at my house
Nigga, what am I about?
You gon’ really feel it now
I’m out here…

[Hook: Drake]
Looking for revenge
All summer sixteen
All summer sixteen
Playing dirty not clean
Out in front of Four Seasons
Looking like a damn football team
All repping one thing
Looking for revenge

[Beat switch]

[Verse 2: Drake]
All you boys in the new Toronto want to be me a little
All your exes know I like my O’s with a V in the middle
You would love it if I went away or didn’t say nothing else
How am I keeping it real by keeping this shit to myself?
You was never gang, gang, gang, gang, you was never one of us
Had us fooled for a minute there, now we done all grown up
But I’m better off anyway, y’all never gon’ finish Drake
Say you seeing ‘bout it when you see me man y’all never home anyway
Thought of things that you shoulda said, said things that you shouldn’t say
We even gave you the whole money play and y’all still broke to this day
“Oh it’s your time now” yeah, that’s what everybody say
I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella then I turned into Jay
Now I got a house in LA, Now I got a bigger pool than Ye
And look man, Ye’s pool is nice, mine’s just bigger’s what I’m saying
I’m that nigga’s what I’m saying
Getting things done around here
How you let me run it down here
I’m not even from around here
Six, six, six, six, six soon as I’m back in the city they throw a parade
I might get a key to the city and give it to Wayne
Or give it to one of the young boys to carry the wave
Yeah, so trust me, they’ll be out here…

[Hook: Drake]
Looking for revenge
All summer sixteen
All summer sixteen
Playing dirty not clean
Out in front of Four Seasons
Looking like a damn football team
All repping one thing
Looking for…

[Outro: DJ Khaled]
They don’t want us to have a bigger pool than Kanye
