Well, actually rap! Lewis Hamilton has confirmed that he is the mysterious rapper featured on Christina Aguilera’s 2018 song ‘Pipe’.
The song from the singer’s ‘Liberation’ album features rap vocals from a rapper called XNDA. Turns out the rapper is actually six-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton! Not that fans didn’t know that already, but now the champ officially confirmed it on his social media channels.
“Guys, I’ve spent the last 10 years or more writing and recording, working with some of the most talented and beautiful people which I’m so grateful for,” wrote the Briton.
“It’s been the most incredible outlet. Finding something you love so much and can do just for you, for your spirit is, I think, such an important process.
“I’ve come to the place where I’d love to share it with you. I haven’t got a project or album, just a bunch of different songs that perhaps some of you will be able to connect to.
“They have helped me get though some of the most difficult times. At some stage I’m going to find a moment to share them with you, so bear with me.
“I had this incredibly beautiful and talented person reach out to me a while back asking for me to be on her album. I was so blown away and I jumped at the opportunity. I had two hours to write the short verse and record.
“The goal was to have the music come out under a different name so that you could hear the music first and later know it was me, but it didn’t work out the way I’d planned.
“I shied away from acknowledging it was me, I don’t know why, maybe insecurities, fear, overthinking, something I think many people can relate to.
“Well I want to say that XNDA is me and I am so grateful to [Christina Aguilera] for giving me a place to use my voice.
“I have so much gratitude and respect for her and what she’s done in the business,” concluded Hamilton.

And the verse in question? Here are the lyrics:
You know I got a wild imagination
I like to play the doctor, operation (Yeah)
Spread it on the bed like a patient (Yeah)
I’m about to show you domination (Yeah, oh)
Got the ‘nana drippin’ like a waterfall (Yeah, drip drip)
Ooh, that nana good, I could eat it all (Eat it up)
I’mma dive in, touch the ocean floor
You already know what you came here for (Lay it down now)
You know that I’m grown and I’m ’bout it (Yeah, I’m ’bout it)
And I know what to do witcha body (Witcha body)
Every single time that you drop it
Trust me I know what to do with it
