One Dance - Drake feat. Kyla and Wizkid





Strength and guidance, all that I'm wishing for my friends.


One Dance is a song by Canadian rapper Drake, that will appear on his forth coming studio album Views from the 6. It features guest vocals, British singer Kyla and Nigerian rapper Wizkid.

Song was released on April, 2016. Genre is afrobeat. Afrobeat is traditional Nigerian music, combined with Ghanian music, funk, jazz and rhythmic singing fused with percussion and vocal styles.

Song topped the charts in New Zealand, the Netherlands, France, and the United Kingdom. In the United States on the Billboard (Hot 100), the song reached number two.

Lyrics are about a boy that really likes this girl. But he has something to take care of and he does not know if he will make it out alive. So he wants to dance maybe his last dance with her.  

One Dance is written in the key of B minor. My arrangement is in the key of A minor. I've heard two versions of this song (and I like both of them), so I've decided to mix them together. The whole song follows a chord progression of Am – C – Dm. 




 

 


Lyrics:

Baby, I like your style.

Grips on your waist,
front way, back way,
you know that I don't play,
streets not safe,
but I never run away,
even when I'm away,
oti, oti, there's never much love when we go, oti,
I pray to make it back in one piece.

That's why I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time 'fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me
I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time 'fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me
I pray, I pray

Baby, I like your style.

Strength and guidance,
all that I'm wishing for my friends,
nobody makes it from my ends,
I had to bust up the silence,
you know you gotta stick by me,
soon as you see the text, reply me,
I don't wanna spend time fighting,
we've got no time.

And that's why I need a one dance,
got a Hennessy in my hand,
one more time 'fore I go,
higher powers taking a hold on me,
I need a one dance,
got a Hennessy in my hand,
one more time 'fore I go,
higher powers taking a hold on me.

Got a pretty girl and she love me long time,
wine it, wine it, very long time,
oh, yeah, she steady on grindin',
back up, back up, back up and wine it,
back up, back up and wine it,
back up, back up, back up and wine it,
oh, yeah, she steady on grindin',
back up, back up and wine it, girl.

Tell me now, I need to know, where do you wanna go?
'Cause if you're down, I'll take it slow,
make you lose control,
where, where, where,
where, where, where, where,
oh, yeah, she steady on grindin',
where, where, where,
back up, back up and wine it, girl,
where, where, where, where.
3x
'Cause if you're down,
back up, back up and


I need a one dance,
got a Hennessy in my hand,
one more time 'fore I go,
higher powers taking a hold on me,
I need a one dance,
got a Hennessy in my hand,
one more time 'fore I go,
higher powers taking a hold on me.
