"In My Feelings" is a song by Canadian musician Drake from his fifth studio album Scorpion (2018). It was released to rhythmic and contemporary hit radio on July 30, 2018, as the album's fifth single.[1][2] The song features additional vocals by the City Girls, though they are not credited on the official version.[3] The song has topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for ten weeks.

Composition and samples[edit]

"In My Feelings" is a bounce track, similar to Drake's previous single "Nice for What".[4] Upon its release, several outlets reported that the song was about Keshia Chanté,[5] Drake's first girlfriend and childhood friend.[6][7][8][9] It was also reported that "KB" was K'yanna Barber, a resident of Oakland, CA.[10][11] Drake also makes references to Jennifer Lopez ("Jenny"), who he briefly dated in 2016, and Quality Control duo City Girls, made up of members Yung Miami ("Resha") and JT.[12] The City Girls also provide uncredited vocals.[3]

The track samples "Smoking Gun (Acapella Version)" by Magnolia Shorty for the breakdown.[4] "Lollipop" by Lil Wayne is also sampled and the track ends with audio from the episode "Champagne Papi" from the television series Atlanta.[13] The song was later slightly altered and re-uploaded to streaming sites with additional sampled vocals from Lil Wayne.[3]

Release and reception[edit]

The song inspired an Internet meme dance challenge known as the "Kiki Challenge", "In My Feelings Challenge" or "DoTheShiggy", the latter being a reference to the comedian Shiggy, who posted a video on his Instagram account of him dancing to the song; this video was credited for inspiring the challenge.[14] The dance challenge is to walk outside of moving vehicles (ghost riding) and dance in oncoming traffic.[15][16][17] Originating in the US, the challenge later spread to other parts of the world where in some countries it caused controversy and public concern.[18] The challenge is banned in roads of EDSA and other public roads in the Philippines.

The Fader deemed the bounce track as the highlight of the double album, with writer Ben Dandrige-Lemco saying, "it takes a whole 20 songs to get to the best part of the album, 'In My Feelings'".[4] The Hollywood Reporter's Jonny Coleman felt that the song, along with "Nice for What", "might be two of the most enduring tracks [in the album]".[19] Andy Hutchins of Time called the song "a disastrous misunderstanding of New Orleans bounce."[20]

Commercial performance[edit]

In the Billboard magazine issue dated July 14, 2018, "In My Feelings" debuted at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, one of seven top 10 entries by Drake that week. The following week, partly due to the rising popularity of the dance challenge associated with the song,[21] it ascended to the top spot of the chart, becoming Drake's sixth number-one single on the chart.[22] On the issue dated July 28, 2018, "In My Feelings" broke the streaming record for the most streams in a single week with 116.2 million streams, and retained the top spot on the chart.[23] It also reached number one on the Canadian Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart.

In the UK, it did not enter the charts on the first week due to chart rules, but the next week, due to the popularity of the dance challenge, it entered at number four. A week later, it rose to number one. "In My Feelings" spent four weeks at the top of the chart, before being replaced by "Shotgun".

The success of "In My Feelings" made Drake the record holder for most number one hits among rappers on the Hot 100 chart.[24]

Music video[edit]

The song's music video was shot on July 23, 2018 in New Orleans and was directed by Karena Evans, whom Drake previously worked with on the videos for "God's Plan", "Nice for What", and "I'm Upset" earlier in the year.[25]

The song's music video was released on August 2, 2018, on Drake's YouTube channel.[26] "KeKe" is played by La La Anthony while her mother is played by Phylicia Rashad. The video takes place in New Orleans and shows people dancing to the song, including Yung Miami of the City Girls and bounce music legend Big Freedia. Comedian Shiggy, who has been credited with inventing the viral "In My Feelings Challenge", makes a cameo as a production assistant as well as a dancer in the video. At the end of the music video, a small montage of celebrities and internet influencers participating in the "In My Feelings Challenge" is displayed. A few of these people include Will Smith, DJ Khaled, Ciara, Steve Aoki, Odell Beckham Jr., Dua Lipa, Millie Bobby Brown, Liza Koshy, Noah Schnapp, Ryan Seacrest, Shay Mitchell, Bobby Berk, Tan France, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, and J-Hope (BTS).

As of September 2018, the music video on YouTube has amassed more than 100 million views.[27]
