    Recently we got wind of the fact that Drake loved British crime-drama show Top Boy so much that he campaigned for Netflix to film a new season, with Drake himself in the executive producer seat.

    Now they've surprise-dropped a soundtrack to the show featuring 17 songs "inspired by the series", including new tunes by a bunch of UK-influenced rap and grime lords like Little Simz, Dave, Popcaan and hey, wait a minute... a new Drake song tucked in right at the end.

    It's called Behind Barz and it's Drake at his freestyle best - no catchy meme-worthy chorus, just Drizzy spitting some bars. Fans will know the song has been an unreleased track for quite a while, but we've never heard it officially until now.

    The 17-track soundtrack is dark and gritty, just like its TV show inspiration, and features a ton of up-and-coming British names as well as others already signed to Drake's OVO Sound label. 

    Top Boy season 3 drops today on Netflix six years after season 2.
