His first single since dropping Her Loss last year, Drake includes a voice sample of Kim from Keeping Up With The Kardashian's season finale on 'Search & Rescue'
The cover art depicts Drake and a woman wearing motorcycle helmets, with only their eyes visible.
'Search & Rescue' also includes a sample of Kim Kardashian's voice, taken from Keeping Up With The Kardashians' series finale. Kim can be heard telling Kris Jenner "I didn't come this far just to come this far and not be happy. Remember that."
Kris then responds, "Okay, that's fair."
The comment was made in reference to Kanye West, Kim Kardashian's ex-husband, and the end of the two's marriage.

Over the years, Drake has had a notorious rivalry with Kanye West, Kardashian's ex-husband. Despite performing together in 2021, the extent of cordiality between them remains debated.
Dennis Graham, Drake's father, has since responded to a TMZ Instagram post about the inclusion of the audio. The picture of the post was captioned "Drake Trolls Ye With Kim K Audio on New Song."
“Drake is not trolling anyone, it’s just a song. Why try and create a Kanye and Drake beef again???????????????”
While it's Drake's first single of the year, the American rapper lent his skills to the Jamaican singer Popcaan's 2023 single 'We Caa Done.' It comes after Drake dropped both Her Loss album, a collaborative project with 21 Savage, and the solo album Honestly, Nevermind in 2022.
Promotion for Her Loss actually landed the two in hot water. The production and circulation of fake Vogue magazines promoting Drake and 21 Savage on the cover brought down a 30-page cease-and-desist lawsuit on the pair.
Drake and 21 Savage are currently preparing for a Her Loss tour of North America. There is no European tour set at this time.
