Did Kevin De Bruyne Co-Write On Drake’s ‘Wick Man’ From ‘Scary Hours 3?’

Scary Hours 3 (or For All The Dogs: Scary Hours Edition, whichever you prefer), is the gift that keeps giving. Drake’s latest musical release is a goldmine of conversation starters. From the shoutout of other musicians (Taylor Swift) to the jabs at others (notable Joe Budden, Pusha T, and Kanye West), these fresh rounds of tracks will give fans something to talk about during holiday meals.

One track, “Wick Man,” stumped music listeners and sports watchers. After reading the lyrics aimed at Pusha T, Kanye West, and Black Americans, the songwriting credits are another discussion. Did Kevin De Bruyne co-write Drake’s “Wick Man” from Scary Hours 3? Although the professional soccer player joked about it online and has a standing business relationship with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports International, the answer is no.

“Drake needed an assist.”

The K. De Bruyne listed alongside The Alchemist (real name Alan Maman) is Koen De Bruyne, not Kevin.

Who Is Koen De Bruyne?

Koen De Bruyne is the musician and producer behind the 1978 song “Landscape,” from which Drake’s “Wick Man” samples elements.
De Bruyne was a member of the jazz-funk group hailing from Belgium. Bruyne is credited on his brother Kris De Bruyne’s 1975 albums Amsterdam and ‘S Nachts Als Het Donker Is. It is unknown if Kevin, who also called Belgium home, is related to Koen. Kevin’s biography states his father’s name is Herwig De Bruyne. Could Koen be a distant cousin?
