On Sunday, a 12-second clip of a track called “Can I” appeared on Soundcloud, featuring vocals from the duo. In the snippet, Queen Bey begins a few bars with “can I,” before Drizzy rushes in to finish each of the lines. Despite its brevity, the alleged collaboration generated enough activity to reach No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 shortly after the leak occurred.
Billboard has reached out to representatives of both artists for comment.
