Drake's upcoming album is already making "Headlines": the artist revealed to MuchMusic over the weekend that icon Stevie Wonder had a hand in creating his soon-to-be-released "Take Care."
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?
well done drake. you have to seperate yourself from this pop culture sound and get into your own style. Great hip hop artist..his style of lyrics are amazing but he has to get away from the lil wayne crew in order to reall make a mark
I'm not a huge rap fan, but I suggest that people who dislike rap or hip hop not judge one artist based on their genre and vice versa. That would be like me saying I hate country because I'm not a fan of Taylor Swift. Also, if you are going to quote a lyric, please make sure the lyric is correct and in context. Kudos to Stevie Wonder for working with Drake. It isn't unusual for legends like him to work with new younger artists people. Respect the artist's craft; you don't have to like their work to do it.
Drake is not a rapper, he sounds more like Dr seus .anybody can rhyme. But can you rhyme and still have a message?
"What am I gonna do? Oh yeah, I'm gone do me, I'm gone do me."
That's a Drake rap.
Hip-Hop died years ago. All the new rappers are clown shoes.
I love drakes coffee cake!
Wow hell yea I'm looking forward to it cant wait I really think that with stevie wonder riding shotgun on this drake is going to make a killing! :)
Drake is working, trying to solidify himself as a staying power in the current hiphop era. You should acknowledge the fact the kid went enlisted Mr. Wonder for his new album and learned from him. A sign of a student of music, progressing himself and not regressing.
Drake and steven wonder,perfect combination.Go Drake You the bomb.
Oh yeah, Drake is a bomb alright!! A bomb that dropped outa someones rear-end plus he STINKS!!
Even Stevie Wonder cant help this idiot and is probably regretting even knowing this fool
Drake is garbage...I guess Nick money can make u "hood rich" and famous
I am a flamin butt pirate and I just love to plow the poop chute!! Any of u gay boyz wanna hook up and play hide the pickle? Let's get down and get bizzy!!
Drake gets me really hard! ;)
Drake really has amazing music
I'm not really a rap connoisseur, but Drake's pretty awesome. He's as good as they come, even better than most rappers out there today.
One of his songs might be about how Wayne makes him happy called "Blow Off My Dick Hard".
Drake is one of the most talented artist in the music industry today. To everyone that's using this as an oppotunity for negativity towards him or Stevie Wonder focus more on getting your own life out the tank.
I HAVE NOTHING BUT LOVE FOR YOU BABY KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK BABY BOY LOVE YOU
For some reason when Im around Drake he always likes to pull down my pants and put his mouth on my tool.
I'm sorry but he is probably the worst rapper out there. I heard a few of his new songs and I literally took it off under a minute. His last cd was wack. He's now worse that he signed with Young Money. Not even stevie wonder can help him. Time for a me job
Omq cant wait until iht come out
No doubt. You could use some of your welfare money to purchase the cd or just steal it. Isnt that what "you people" do?
What's up with da new single HEADLINES ? I am not feeling it at all.
Another talentless idiot rapping about Kool-Aid and Newports.
@bloody butt.....u suck! Stevie Wonder is a national treasure. He doesn't have anything to prove. That man has more $ than u will EVER c n your pathetic life. He doesn't need to record he does it for The love of music. No he's not broke nor is his career in the can. He's set for life just off of Songs in the Key of life. Love you Stevie. Drake, wish u luck!
FUCC IT IM ON ONE!!!!!!
Wow. After reading these comments it's safe to say CNN isn't the place to follow hiphop. If you haven't heard "headlines" and don't care to, move on to the next article. Dude is killing it right now.
oh drake, get back in your wheelchair...
This guy is butt ugly.
Drake is pretty aweful at not just music but life as well. I haven't heard much about stevie wonder recently but he must either be broke or his career is in a urine soaked toilet.
He stole Big Sean flow. That's why I give him a thumbs down.
Drake,sorta talented.He's like a bleached n watered-down version of T-Payne,pre-pubescent.Stevie could make crappy music turn into platinum bricks. Stevie,Always a class-act
Fu k Drake
If you like hiphop Drake is on top of the list. And YMCMB
I HONESTLY think that "TAKE CARE" will be a real laid back sort of song...Stevie Wonder is like an "ALL TIME GREATEST" so he's more of an "OL SKOOL" guy singing about love and devotion!!! Now Drake is more of a Triple Threat, 21st Century guy...he sings, acts and raps...I think it will be AWESOME ;o)
I would listen to an album of Drake humming or breathing. He is probably the most beautiful man I have ever seen and multi-talented. I have a poster of him hanging in my room and fall asleep staring at him every night. LOL
Drake is a great lyricist. Have you ever sat and listened to his song "thank me now?" great song was great lyrics
@ the moment I can't recall his music - he is however a vary handsome guy.
@ tracie's comment....ditto ; )
What luck this dude has! He's nowhere near the stratosphere of some1 like Wonder,but the super star comes out to play & have fun with the youngster! Drake has a long way to go, but I did like his 1st CD! It was different from the usual everybody seemed to be putting out!!
Why do they use the word "drop" when their new CD comes out? what does it mean? somebody 'splain it to me please
Drop as in turd. Drop like a turd out of someones ass.
Childish Gambino is still better.
yeah gambino is a beast but less be rel j cole is better than both
I can't help but see Drake as Jimmy Brooks (the character he played in Degrassi). I watched him grow up with the show and I just can't take him seriously...sorry Drake.
I love drake. He's a wonderful artist. He flows like a river. I look forward to the new album.
He flows like a river alright. A river of pee.
Drake who? I don't know of him...
This guy is just plain ugly..sorry!
Wonder has better vision than you.
Jessa, if you think Drake is ugly, then I hate to see what you consider handsome!
I love you Drake
@tracie I love you babygirl.
Was that your comeback? Pathetic.
So you're either a complete moron, or someone who still thinks preschool "doo doo" jokes are funny. Either way, you lose.
stevie can only make this boys music better. Im not a fan but congrats on collaborating with a real legend and not a self proclaimed one like lil wayne.
BTW has anyone seen the youtube footage of lil wayne being punked by a whole convoy of REAL gangters in south cental L.A.? check it out for a laugh people, lil wayne actually goes fetal..
Yeah, he gets punched by 40 Glocc and his crip homies in L.A. All these young money guys are wack
My bad. I meant to say he got punked by 40 Glocc
The only reason they did that is cuz lil wayne and them are rich as f*$% and 40 glocc pockets are on looking small and they want some attention.
Stevie Wonder probably has a real good sense of smell
That is just crazy. I will let Drake know to stay away from your crazy self.
Drake big music roots– his father used to play for Sly and the Family Stone , and he found his own style in music so I doubt he has to write about the degrading things you all like to think he writes about
Stevie Wonder will regret helping this idiot drake. And being the offspring is from someone famous usually makes not difference.
This "drake music" is ear splitting and reminds me of a group of people indiscriminantly farting.
I guess that's supposed to be funny. Keep trying.
