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

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.
