How to Format Lyrics:

  • Type out all lyrics, even repeating song parts like the chorus
  • Lyrics should be broken down into individual lines
  • Use section headers above different song parts like [Verse], [Chorus], etc.
  • Use italics (<i>lyric</i>) and bold (<b>lyric</b>) to distinguish between different vocalists in the same song part
  • If you don’t understand a lyric, use [?]

Drake searches for the perfect match on his first release of 2023. Fans first anticipated “Search & Rescue” when Drake shared a snippet of the song via Instagram stories on March 26, 2023. The full song premiered on Sound 42 on March 31, 2023.

On April 6, 2023, Drake announced the song’s official release date with the cover art. The artwork contains a superimposed image of Drake cozying up with UK vocalist Lilah, a woman that bares a striking resemblance to his mentor-turned-rival Kanye West’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, whilst sporting black helmets. Notably, the song also samples Kardashian and her mom, Kris Jenner, discussing Kim’s divorce from Ye, lifted from an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
