Though D.R.A.M. drops his studio debut, Big Baby D.R.A.M., tomorrow, he’s served up one more preview track ahead of the release. Following “Cash Machine”, “Cute”, and the Lil Yacthy-featuring “Broccoli”, the Virginia rapper/R&B artist has shared “WiFi”, his collaboration with Erykah Badu.

Unlike the past singles from the LP, this track is not a bouncy, feel-good trap track; instead, it’s a sultry R&B jam fit for modern day lovemaking. Over a slow-burning, funky bassline and smooth electronics, D.R.A.M. and Badu sing of a romantic connection built on, well, WiFi. Either that, or they’re using technology as a running metaphor for something a bit more physical. “Boy I got wifi/ And my service is nice at that/ And it comes at no price at that,” Badu sings after D.R.A.M. introduces her. “Let me know where your iPhone at/ To log on my wifi.”

The song premiere on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, and you can listen below via Apple Music or Spotify.

Big Baby D.R.A.M. is out October 21st via Atlantic/Empire.
