For the former, he details the record with MTV. (A wedding song, eh? Hmmm *nods*)
It’s me and 40 just channeling our Quincy Jones/Michael Jackson production duo. Obviously no offense to the greats, I know we’re not anywhere near that — it’s just us kinda doing our thing, humbly attempting.”
It’s not a rap record. It’s not ‘Versace,’ it’s not ‘Started From the Bottom‘. In approaching this album I was like man, it would be great if we had a record that was played at weddings in 10 years or that people that are away from their families in the army could listen to. Something that just [has] timeless writing, timeless melody. So I did it with the group that we signed to OVO called Majid Jordan.
Majid is singing on the record with me and Jordan is his production partner. It’s a great record. I’m nervous and excited and all these things about it. I’ve never really put out a record like this before, so we’ll see how it goes.
And for the latter, Drake reveals to Revolt TV that he and Kanye hadn't talked until... well, Kanye was on stage. Isn't that crazy to think about? The co-sign in T. Dot means a lot to Drake, which was real cool to see from Drizzy in the interview (see: the quote below). I, like the rest of humanity, would be geeked if Drake & 'Ye started communicating more from here (namely in the studio with the record button on).
"Me and Kanye, we didn't even talk before we got on stage together... That was my first time seeing him, when he got on stage."
"Probably the most important moment in my life to date. Because at the end of the day, I do look up to 'Ye. He's a major influence if not the biggest influence in my career."
