*Drake has something up his sleeves for the next album.
News reports have revealed the rapper will be working with Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and you’d never guess, but Stevie Wonder.
“Stevie Wonder is a very close friend of mine,” the Canadian native recently revealed backstage at the OVO Fest in Toronto. “I’m honored to call him a friend, someone who embraced me very early in this music business. Stevie Wonder is actually on ‘Take Care.'”
He went on to share with the MuchMusic network about his relationship with the legend and how working with him has matured his music.
“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,” Drake stated.
Not only has Stevie agreed to work with him on the album, but for those who missed it, he appeared on stage with the rapper at the OVO Fest.
“So I hit him up, asked him to come by, and with no hesitation he hit me back like, ‘I will be there,'” he shared. “Not only that, but he was supposed to do two songs and he did like six. It was incredible.”
Drake’s next album, “Take Care” is to debut on Oct. 24.
