[Popcaan & Drake:]
Gyal yuh body good and yuh special to meh
Wan mek you mi lady, officially
From you tickets fi buy, den mi willin to pay
Fly yuh in from distance away
Right, my yiy just changed
You just buzzed the front gate
I thank God you came
How many more days could I wait?
I made plans with you
And I won't let em fall through
I, I, I, I, I

[Drake:]
I think I'd lie for you
I think I'd die for you
Jodeci "Cry For You"
Do things when you want me to
Like controlla, controlla
Yeah, like controlla, controlla

Yeah, okay, you like it
When I get, aggressive, tell you to
Go slower, go faster
Like controlla, controlla
Yeah, like controlla, controlla
And I'm never on a waste ting shorty
I do it how you say you want it
Them girls, they just wanna take my money
They don't want me to give you nothing
They don't want you to have nothing
They don't wanna see me find your lovin'
They don't wanna see me
Smiling back when they pree

Knowing I'd lie for you
Thinking I'd die for you
Jodeci "Cry For You"
Do things when you want me too
Like controlla, controlla
Yeah, like controlla, controlla

[Popcaan:]
Baby yuh mek mi happy, wine up yuh sexy body fi papi
Yuh eyes-dem lookin at me

Controlla Info:

• Controlla acts as a sequel to Rihanna and Drake's hit single Work, in terms of beat and melody.

• The song originally featured Drake's friend and dancehall star Popcaan who previously appeared in the outro of If You're Reading This It's Too Late 's Know Yourself

• The song was redone for Views. In it Popcaan's part was replaced by a sample from a song by another dancehall artist - Beenie Man's Tear Off Mi Garment.

• Beenie Man also appears at the end of the album version. Beenie Man said about the collaboration:

"They reached out to me to clear the sample then he reached out to me to do an intro for the song It's a big deal. For somebody to take a song that I've been done for 15 years, to release and put it out -- it's a big deal. It's always great. For him to idolize me like that, it's a big deal. [Laughs]"
