The track, which samples Lauryn Hill's 'Doo-Wop (That Thing)', is a nod to football star and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

After teasing "Draft Day" on Twitter in early March, released the new track on Tuesday, April 1. Produced by Boi-1da and The Fans, the song samples 's 1998 hit "Doo-Wop (That Thing)".

The track is a nod to Johnny Manziel, the 21-year-old football star and Heisman Trophy winner whom Drake became close with last year. It also features the Canadian MC giving a shout-out to actress and name-checking fellow rapper .

"And if I've left this s**t to chance/ I would've picked a name like Chance the Rapper/ No offense cause I don't know that n***a/ I'm focused on makin' records and gettin' bigger/ Just hits, no misses, that's for the married folks," he raps.

Drake recently wrapped up his "Would You Like a Tour" tour, which was launched to support his latest album "". During a show in the U.K. late last month, he debuted a new track titled "Call on Me".
