If Lil Wayne can’t release his own original music, he’s going to get his by contributing to as many songs as he possibly can. His latest featured verse appears in the remix of Kiiara’s hit single “Gold.”
Lil Wayne comes in at the 1:20 mark, clearing his throat first before doubling down on his raspy vocals and adding a quick verse to contrast the shimmering glitch-pop style that has made “Gold” such a hit. Lil Wayne shouts out Kiiara, calling her “lit” and expressing how much he likes that “caught up in my tea s—.”
The verse focuses primarily on Lil Wayne’s wealth, including his “zillion dollar smile,” but he ends with a quick line that showcases his singing abilities. “If yellow was gold we’d follow the yellow brick road/ I’m lettin’ her go without ever lettin’ you know,” he raps, before shifting into harmonizing with Kiiara.
