Energy” is music video and song by Canadian rapper Drake from his fourth mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

The music video premiered on July 23rd 2015 via Apple Music.

He was inspired by the changing faces in Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” video. “I was like, ‘Man, you know, effects have come such a long way. I bet we could do something crazy with this.’ And how many people in the world feel like they have enemies? Everywhere you go, there’s always someone who wants to pull you down and even celerity friends of mine or people that I don’t know. I want people to rewind it a bunch of times and go and tell someone else to watch it. It’s shocking, it’s beautiful, it’s a lot of things.”

During his interview with Zane Lowe, he also discussed the status of his album Views From the 6. “We’re working, I never like to say close or far. I’ll just say we’re working,” said Drake. “Working with [Noah ’40’ Shebib] is the best possible thing that I can do for any project.”

Plus, he announced that he will join the company of Dr. Dre and Pharrell by launching OVO Sound Radio on Apple Music’s Beats 1. The show will debut on Saturday night, July 12. “This is definitely where you’re gonna go to get your fix,” he said. “Everybody else has had their shot, so you gotta give us our shot. It’s our time.” [Source: Rap-Up]

Lyrics for Drake – ‘Energy’

[Intro]
Lickwood means “rewind” and gunshot means “forward”
You requested it, so we rewind

Yeah, way, way, way up
Turn it all up, yeah, look,

[Hook 1]
I got enemies, got a lot of enemies
Got a lot of people tryna drain me of my energy
They tryna the wave from a nigga
Fuckin’ with the kid and pray for your nigga

[Verse 1]
I got girls in real life tryna fuck up my day
Fuck goin’ online, that ain’t part of my day
I got real shit poppin’ with my family too
I got niggas that can never leave Canada too
I got two mortgages, thirty million in total
I got niggas that’ll still try fuckin’ me over
I got rap niggas that I gotta act like I like
But my actin’ days are over, fuck them niggas for life, yeah

[Hook 1]
I got enemies, got a lot of enemies
Got a lot of people tryna drain me of this energy
Tryna take it away from a nigga
Fuckin’ with the kid and pray for your nigga

[Verse 2]
I got people talkin’ down, man, like I give a fuck
I bought this one a purse, I bought this one a truck
I bought this one a house, I bought this one a mall
I keep buyin’ shit, just make sure you keep track of it all
I got bitches askin’ me about the code for the Wi-Fi
So they can talk about they Timeline
And show me pictures of they friends
Just to tell me they ain’t really friends
Ex-girl, she the female version of me
I got strippers in my life, but they virgins to me
I hear everybody talkin’ ’bout what they gon’ be
I got high hopes for you niggas, we gon’ see
I got money in the courts ’til all my niggas are free
‘Bout to call your ass a Uber, I got somewhere to be
I hear fairy tales ‘bout how they gon’ run up on me
Well, run up when you see me then and we gon’ see

[Hook 2]
I got enemies, got a lot of enemies
Got a lot of people tryna drain me of this energy
Tryna take it away from a nigga
Fuckin’ with the kid and pray for your nigga

[Verse 3]
Nah, fuck all of you niggas, I ain’t finished
Y’all don’t wanna hear me say it’s a go
Y’all don’t wanna see Win Win, 50 or woe
I got real ones livin’ past Kennedy Road
I got real ones wit’ me everywhere that I go
I’m tryna tell ya I got enemies, got a lot of enemies
Every time I see ‘em, somethin’ wrong with their memory
Tryna take it away from a nigga
So tired of savin’ all these niggas, mayne
Yeah, run ’em

[Hook 2]
I got enemies, got a lot of enemies
Got a lot of people tryna drain me of this energy
Tryna take it away from a nigga
Fuckin’ with the kid and pray for your nigga

[Outro]
I’m off this, man
