Drake Shouts Out Chart Queen Taylor Swift in 'Scary Hours 3'On 'Red Button ' Track
In a notable moment on Drake's latest track, "Red Button," the rapper pays homage to Taylor Swift, acknowledging her as the only artist who could sway his decision to delay an album release. This revelation appears on the first song of Drake's six-track Scary Hours expansion of For All the Dogs.
At the start of the Ovrkast and Lil Yachty-produced track, Drake, known as the "6 God," assesses his "decimated" competition from the perspective of being "the most decorated." A few lines later, he highlights his extensive Billboard charts success, naturally leading to Swift's inclusion in the discussion.

"Taylor Swift the only n***a that I ever rated," Drake raps, adding that Swift is also the only artist who could "make me drop the album just a little later." In contrast, he treats everyone else like they "never made it."
This verse underscores Drake's immense respect for Swift's artistry and her unparalleled influence in the music industry. Her ability to captivate audiences and consistently deliver chart-topping hits has undoubtedly earned her a special place in Drake's esteem.
"Taylor Swift the only n***a that I ever rated
Only one could make me drop the album just a little later
Rest of y'all, I treat you like you never made it
Leave your label devastated
Even when you pad the stats, period, I never hated
Even when you stab me in the back, the vest is metal-plated
Tryna see a B inside my circle like I'm gettin' graded
Man, all this luggage in the lobby like I'm gettin' traded"
While Drake's lyrics specifically cite Swift's ability to influence his release schedule, the underlying sentiment extends beyond this particular instance. He recognizes her exceptional talent and the impact she has had on the music landscape.
Drake's admiration for Swift is not without reason. She holds the title of the most-awarded act at the American Music Awards (AMAs), with 40 wins, and has been nominated for 32 Grammy Awards, winning 12. Her extensive catalog of hit songs and her unwavering dedication to her craft have solidified her position as a true icon in the world of music.
Drake's acknowledgment of Swift's influence is a testament to her enduring legacy and her ability to transcend genres and generations. As two of the most prominent figures in the music industry, their mutual respect serves as a reminder of the power of music to unite and inspire.
