"Like a Man" is a song recorded by Onhel, featuring American rapper Lil Wayne. It was released as a single on August 8, 2017.[2]

Background[edit]

The song was described as tropical house with "Wayne's signature croaky, Auto-Tuned vocals".[3][4][5] It was shared on Onhel's Soundcloud page, crediting himself as the primary artist and Wayne as the featured artist.[6][7] It was released one month after Wayne released four songs.[8] Rumored to be a single off Wayne's unreleased Tha Carter V album, the song was leaked in early August. In response to the leak, Wayne officially released it himself to "get ahead" of pirates.[9][10]

Production[edit]

The song was produced by Wayne's long-time audio engineer Onhel, who has produced over fifty songs with him.[11][12] Wayne said the song was done several years ago but only decided to officially release when he heard the new production.[13][14] A snippet of the original production was leaked online by hacker group, Music Mafia.[15]
