It appears that Pharrell has subtly addressed his ongoing feud with Drake in his latest track, “Double Life.” The song, part of the Despicable Me 4 soundtrack, has sparked widespread speculation among fans and critics alike.

Lyrics hinting at the feud

Released on June 14, “Double Life” features lyrics that many believe are directed at the Canadian rapper. Pharrell sings: “Hey, what are you hiding? / What you do when you’re gone? / Nothin’ wrong bein’ private / Make sure it ain’t wrong / Your life double-sided / Two-faced like coins / What side do I get? / What side are you on?”

He continues with: “So what have you done? / Some of your dirt has come to light … Lie detector time / Do you feel bad when you lie?”

Background of the feud

While Pharrell doesn’t explicitly name Drake, the timing and context have led many to believe it’s a response to Drake’s recent comments. The feud between the two artists dates back to 2018 when Pharrell’s close friend Pusha T engaged in a rap battle with Drake. Feeling slighted by Pharrell’s allegiance, Drake has taken several shots at him over the years.

Most notably, Drake dissed Pharrell in Travis Scott’s 2023 song “Meltdown”, rapping: “I melt down the chains that I bought from yo boss / Give a f— about all of that heritage s— / Since V not around, the members done hung up the Louis / They not even wearing that s—”

What’s next?

Drake has yet to respond to Pharrell’s latest track. As the hip-hop community watches closely, it remains to be seen how this feud will unfold.
