Drake calls the heralded singer a close friend, and said that he relied on Wonder to give him some feedback.
"He helped me out with a lot of the music, just came and sat with me...told me where I could add a couple things to make it more sonically appealing," the 24-year-old star said. "Not only that, but we actually are writing together, which is an incredible experience."
Fans got to see the two team up at the OVO Music Festival in Toronto this past weekend, as Drake brought Wonder along to perform with him.
"I...asked him to come by, and with no hesitation he hit me back like, 'I will be there,'" Drake said of setting up the gig. "He was supposed to do two songs and he did like six. It was incredible."
Drake's "Take Care" drops on October 24. Are you looking forward to it? What do you think of his latest singles?
