    The Best Part About Drake's New Album Is His Erykah Badu Sample

    ♫ Baby don't worry, you know that you got me ♫

    Last night, Drake dropped his new mixtape, If You're Reading This It's Too Late.

    Unsurprisingly, there's a lot to love about his new music.

    But the best part is when Drake channels his inner-Erykah Badu and sampled the chorus of "You Got Me" on his own song, "6 Man."

    The sample is originally from the 1999 track "You Got Me" by The Roots featuring Erykah Badu.

    It didn't take fans very long to catch on to the Badu/Roots reference, and according to their internet reactions everyone seems to be thrilled about it.

    When Drake sang sum Erykah Badu real quick

    This isn't the first time Drake has shown Erykah Badu love in one of his songs. Last April, Drizzy released a song titled "Days In The East" where he mentions her in the lyrics.

    And in response, Badu posted this brilliant Vine:
