Did you ever have that moment as a kid when you were watching a film and your Mum would come in with snacks and use it as an excuse to start chatting to your friends?

Or when you'd be getting a lift off your Dad and he'd start rapping the words to Sean Paul and Blu Cantrell's Breathe with the window down and you'd be seething in silence in the passenger seat at the sheer audacity of your elder singing the album you bought from Woolworths?

Well, you'll be able to sympathise with Drake right now because his Dad, Mr Dennis Graham – to give him his full title – has just released a 35-second teaser of his debut single Kinda Crazy .

This afternoon, the 60-year-old released a preview clip of his new song produced with none other than Jamie Lovine – the man behind the release of Drake's recent album Views on Apple Music – which will have you wanting to don your East-17 white puffer jacket because Dennis is officially bringing it back to the old school.

From the looks of it, Dennis doesn't do things by halves because during the clip, the full-mustached singer has taken the effort to put on a Daz-white three-piece suit, an owl chain and a brown beanie which gives us so many R&B vibes spanning the ages that we don't know quite where to look. 

In true Dennis fashion (we presume), he's populated his music video with smoke (or a cloud, we're not quite sure), a silver throne and a candelabra (why not?), along with a blonde-haired model whipping her luscious locks in slow motion as if she's auditioning for a new L'Oreal hair dye advert.

The singer is evidently a wordsmith like his offspring, rhyming lyrics such as: 'It's kinda crazy, but I feel you underneath my skin. The first glance, I think, it's where my obsession began.'

With his syrupy voice that's a mix between R Kelly and John Legend (kind of), it's unsurprising to hear this isn't Graham's first foray into music. 

He's previously appeared in his son's video for Worst Behaviour, played drums for Jerry Lee Lewis (of Great Balls Of Fire fame) and is the brother of Larry Graham who was sampled on Kanye West's No Parties in L.A.

With over 179 thousand followers and a penchant for partying with his son, we can't wait for Dennis' full track to be released later this month. 

Besides, he's got Drake's approval so it must be good, right?
