I know, I know, we reported on similar news back in May. But back then, our story was based on Drake tweeting that the Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye, will appear on Drizzy’s sophomore effort, Take Care. But now, he has confirmed in an interview with Billboard that Tesfaye will indeed be featured as a guest on the album. A lot. Drake also noted that his fellow Toronto native inspired him to really step it up vocally on stage and to write better music in the studio. Now if only we had a release date for the Weeknd’s next project, Thursday.
You can watch the entire interview with Drake, which includes discussion of the Weeknd, below. Take Care is due out Oct. 24.
