"One Dance" as written by and Aubrey Graham....
Baby, I like your style

Grips on your waist
Front way, back way
You know that I don't play
Streets not safe
But I never run away
Even when I'm away
Oti, oti, there's never much love when we go OT
I pray to make it back in one piece
I pray, I pray

That's why I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time 'fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me
I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time 'fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me

Baby, I like your style

Strength and guidance
All that I'm wishin' for my friends
Nobody makes it from my ends
I had to bust up the silence
You know you gotta stick by me
Soon as you see the text, reply me
I don't wanna spend time fighting
We've got no time

And that's why I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time 'fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me
I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time 'fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me

Got a pretty girl and she love me long time
Wine it, wine it, and she love me long time
Ooh yeah, very long time
Back up, back up, back up and wine it
Back up, back up and wine it, girl
Back up, back up, back up and wine it
Ooh yeah, very long time
Back, up, back up and wine it, girl

Ooh, tell me
I need to know, where do you wanna go?
'Cause if you're down, I'll take it slow
Make you lose control
Where, where, where
Where, where, where, where (ooh yeah, very long time)
Where, where, where
Back, up, back up and wine it, girl (where, where, where, where=
'Cause if you're down (back up, back up and)
'Cause if you're down (back up, back up and)
'Cause if you're down (back up, back up and)

I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time 'fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me
I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time 'fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me

    Song MeaningThe song is about dancing and drinking before going away.
    Going away could be leaving the club (where the last drink and dance take place) or even losing grip (because of alcohol).

    Drake sings OT, this could mean several things:
    - Out of town
    - Overtime
    - Allright (see Urban Dictionary: urbandictionary.com/… )
    - 'no' in Yoruba, a language spoken in Nigeria, where Wizkid is from
    Source (Dutch)

    I think the song can be interpreted two ways:
    1. Alcohol taking over. Addiction, losing control.
    'I have powers taking ahold on me' could mean that alcohol is taking over, taking control of him. Hennessy is cognac.
    'I pray to make it back in one piece' shows that he is destroying himself with alcohol.
    2. Having one more dance before leaving the club with a girl. The girl sort of got him under her spell.
