Drake Praises Beyoncé, Reveals Collaboration

Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Drake

Girls love Beyoncé, and so does Drake. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, the Canadian rapper praised the pop diva and revealed that they have collaborated for her upcoming album.

During the 30-minute sit-down, he broke down each track on his new album Nothing Was the Same and spoke about Beyoncé’s impact on pop culture.

“I’m a Beyoncé believer,” said Drizzy, who paid homage to Bey on his track “Girls Love Beyoncé.” “I really believe strongly in her talent and her position in our generation. I think she’s one of the biggest stars ever, but especially for these girls right now. I feel like they need Beyoncé.”

He also confirmed that the two have been in the studio together. “I reached out to her and asked if I could come and be a part of her project and she was kind enough to invite me out there. And we did some work together.”

The collaboration came together when he was in the same building as Jay Z, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, and Justin Timberlake, who he considers one of his mentors.

“He is somebody that gives me the best advice in the world, that’s very open about his experiences and encourages me to act,” said Drake of the pop superstar.

It was Timberlake who encouraged him to rap 24 bars on “Cabaret,” which appears on The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. “That was Justin’s idea, not mine,” he said.

Plus, he spoke about his mother’s reaction to his lyrics, his biggest fear, and his plans to return to acting once he’s done touring.

    I bet Chris Brown is mad! He has been wanting to write a song for Beyoncé for a long time now. But now that he has said that stuff about Jay Z in that recent magazine interview there is no way it will happen now lol.

    I know this next project for Beyoncé is going to be fire. To have collaborations with Justin Timberlake/Drake/husband Jay z/ I would only hope she will have a surprise collaboration with Luke James. Well Madame Pepsi, if you are truly correct of her first single being release on Oct. 8 I can’t wait and hope it’s with one of her collaborator’s and hot as fire.

    Just because someone has a good PR team, and a first lady endorsement doesn’t mean she sells records.

    Because if that were true, she would have released her CD already instead of waiting for a true leader like Ciara to pave the way and take a risk.

    She wont help his album sales unless she buys them herself and put them in the basement, like she and jayz always do.
