Move over Future, DVSN is coming for the toxic crown.

On their latest release, the OVO Sound duo have decided to flip a line from Jay-Z’s “Song Cry” into a song they are self-crowning one of the “most honest anthems” – appearing in a Top 5 that consists of the aforementioned “Song Cry,” SZA’s “The Weeknd, Usher’s “Confessions pt.2, and Drake’s “Marvin’s Room.”

Co-produced by Nineteen85, Jermaine Dupri, and Bryan-Michael Cox, the song takes Hov’s “I was just f*cking them girls, I was gon’ be right back” line to an all new high (or low?) with a song that’s sure to cause a division on the timelines.

“I didn’t think one could make a song more toxic than ‘Song Cry.’ I stand corrected,” Jay-Z said in a text message convo Jermaine Dupri shared on Instagram about them discussing a sample clearance. “I just want a disclaimer that says that I said this song is wrong! Haaaaa And you’re good!”

Released with a matching video, starring Mal (from the New Rory & Mal podcast) as the “ain’t sh*t best friend,” the song can be heard below.
