This club-ready song finds Drake and guest rappers Future and Young Thug playing on Right Said Fred's 1991 single "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/right-said-fred/im-too-sexy">I'm Too Sexy</a>."
"Way 2 Sexy" starts off with a direct sample of the Right Said Fred's 1991 worldwide hit. Then, on the track's braggadocios chorus, Future reworks their tongue-in-cheek tune by interpolating lyrics and cadences. The three verses also contain similar lyrics, with Drake boasting he's "too sexy to accept requests," Future bragging he's "too sexy for this cash," and Young Thug saying he's "too sexy to count."
