The Weeknd May Be Referencing Drake’s Secret Child On Gesaffelstein’s “Lost In The Fire”

Lyrics on the song’s first verse may allude to the situation Pusha-T exposed last year.

Last year, The Weeknd revealed that his next album, the R&B star’s first full-length project since STARBOY in 2016, is “coming soon.” While his own album still has no release date, today he unleashed his first new song of 2019. It’s a collaboration with French DJ and producer Gesaffelstein titled “Lost in the Fire.” The track is co-produced by Gesaffelstein and DaHeala, and features some lyrics that could be meant to reignite The Weeknd’s long-dormant beef with Drake.

The first verse is notable because The Weeknd sings about wanting a kid, delivering a lyric that may sound familiar to fans of Pusha-T:

And I just want a baby with the right one
‘Cause I would never be the one to hide one

Whether The Weeknd means this line as a dig at Drake—and the rapper’s secret child with a French adult film star revealed by Pusha on “The Story of Adidon” last year—is unclear, but the two artists do have a rocky history. Although things have seemingly been on the mend in recent years, with both artists appearing on stage together twice in 2017, Drake and The Weeknd did experience a years-long period of chilly relations after fallout from their work together on Take Care.

Pusha later cosigned the track:

Elsewhere, “Lost in the Fire” delivers typical lyrical material for The Weeknd, with the Toronto singer crooning about a sexual encounter:

I wanna fuck you slow with the lights on
You’re the only one I’ve got my sights on
Type of sex you could never put a price on

He later shared the song’s music video. It’s directed by Manu Cossu, who has previously worked with A$AP Rocky and Drake:

“Lost in the Fire” is just the latest collaboration between The Weeknd and Gesaffelstein, who also appeared on 2018’s “Hurt You” and “I Was Never There” from The Weeknd’s My Dear Melancholy, EP. There’s still no word on when to expect new solo music from The Weeknd, but “Lost in the Fire” surely seems to be a taste of things to come.
