Drake is making major moves on his sophomore album. October’s Very Own has nabbed a collaboration with the legendary Stevie Wonder for Take Care.
Backstage at his OVO Fest in Toronto on Sunday, the Canadian hip-hop star made the big announcement. “Stevie Wonder is a very close friend of mine. I’m honored to call him a friend, someone who embraced me very early in this music business,” he told MuchMusic, adding, “Stevie Wonder is actually on Take Care.”
The two got a chance to work together in the studio and developed a rapport. “He helped me out with a lot of the music, just came and sat with me, listened to my music, told me where I could add a couple things to make it more sonically appealing, and not only that but we actually are writing together, which is an incredible experience,” shared Drizzy.
So all he had to do was pick up the phone when he wanted Wonder to perform at Sunday’s OVO Fest. “So I hit him, asked him to come by, and with no hesitation he hit me back like, ‘I will be there,'” said Drake. “Not only that, but he was supposed to do two songs and he did like six. It was incredible.”
