Drake previously reached out to Andre 3000 for his debut LP Thank Me Later, but Three Stacks originally turned him down. For his upcoming sophomore release Take Care, Drizzy finally got his wish, collaborating with the Outkast member for a cut on the album.
“The night before, Drake received a call from Andre 3000, who said he wanted to get on the rapper’s next LP—and, specifically, on a beat made by 40. The original name of the instrumental was ‘Good Enough for the Both of Us,'” writes The Fader. “Suddenly they switch to boardroom mode. Drake, 40, and Drake’s DJ, Future the Prince, discuss Andre 3000 in frank, mathematical terms: the timbre of his voice, the cadences he prefers. They recall his obscure ‘Walk it Out’ freestyle and the run of features since then, and talk about how their instrumental could be modified to better suit Andre’s delivery.”
