Drake releases new single Signs inspired by Louis Vuitton’s SS18 collection

Shortly after releasing its design collaboration with Supreme, Parisian fashion house Louis Vuitton has teamed up with Drake for his newest single, Signs. The Canadian rapper reportedly wrote the song after artistic director Kim Jones sent him images of the new SS18 menswear collection before its runway debut earlier this month. The result is a catchy laidback song which will no doubt be taking over the airwaves this summer and inspiring many to invest in Hawaiian shirts and shell necklaces, all of which feature heavily in Louis Vuitton’s collection. The single is available to listen on Spotify now and you can also hear the song featured in the video below.
