Drake, Gabriel Garzon-Montano

By now even those who don’t use Twitter have at least heard of Drake‘s latest mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

The 17-track compilation debuted with little warning last week, featuring collabs with Lil Wayne, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Travis $cott.

Toward the album’s end, track #16 to be exact, there’s a mellow gem titled “Jungle.”

Helmed by Drake’s go-to producer Noah “40” Shebib, the tune incorporates Gabriel Garzón Montano‘s soothing “6 8.”

“Rock me real slowly /
Put a bib on me /
I’m just like a baby, drooling over you /
The things you do…”

“6 8” appears on the Brooklyn crooner’s debut EP, Bishouné: Alma del Huila, which released last February.

This certainly isn’t the first time I can credit the introduction to an artist to Drake, who also put me on to Swedish indie pop singer-songwriter Lykke Li with 2009’s Little Bit remix.
