Drake: Free Spirit/Sade: I Will Be Your Friend

One of my favorite Sade records, I Will Be Your Friend.

I like how 40 flipped the Sade sample for Drake: Free Spirit. Especially the way it’s filtered so it’s almost unrecognizable, really impressive stuff.

It sounds like the loop plays in reverse throughout the track, then at the end it plays normally. The pitch is slightly lower than the original.

I’ve always wanted someone to loop this intro up though.

Other good Sade samples:

Curren$y: Famous  (Sally)

Half  A Mil: Fast Money & Foreign Objects (Kiss of Life)

MF Doom: Doomsday  (Kiss of Life)

Krayzie Bone ft Sade: Hard Time Hustlin (Feel No Pain)
