Drake Discusses Collaboration With The Weeknd "Crew Love"

Drake recalls the origin of his collaboration with The Weeknd.

The Weeknd contributed both as a singer and as a producer on Drake's sophomore album, Take Care. In a recent interview with Choice FM, the rapper discussed his collaboration with his fellow Toronto native.

"Well, 'Crew Love ' was a song I actually heard for the first time when I was on the 'Moment 4 Life ' video set with Nicki Minaj," explained Drizzy.

"One of my friends played me this song," he continued. "At the time, we were just building our relationship with The Weeknd. Kinda just talking to him for the first time. It was a song he had...the hook and his verse was done already, and I was like, 'Yo, this song is brilliant. Listen to how it starts, and what he's saying, and the sentiment in the song.'"

"That's where I'm at in my life," stated Drake. "Love in the crew. It's not just about me. It's about the Weeknd, it's about Niko, it's about my cousin Ryan. They love all of us."

I agree with everyone that Drakes music is pretty gay but it has became ridiculous. We need to Know if drake dies or retires. other than that we dont care. Stop makin people pissed off with little news stories about drake making a crappy love song

      You guys are both fucking stupid. Nick, if you don't wanna read about Drake or the homo comments on all of his articles, then try doing what follows logically and don't click on the fucking link. You act like DX can only post so many articles a day and are leaving out a breaking story about your favorite rapper for this one. I don't think I've ever read something so unintelligent. @Anonymous NO! It is POP music, not hiphop. Its dudes like you that make the world think that hiphop is songs like fuckin Lollipop

    It was pretty obvious this was a Weeknd track. Best song on the album imo.
