Yesterday I posted a new song by Olivia featuring Drake, and snippet from an interview Olivia did[click HERE if you missed it]…. Well Olivia leaked song “Control” was not a collabo with Drake the old fashion way, it was Drake’s verse from another song sampled in… Drake was not too happy about that.. He quotes:
“I support artist collaborations and sampling music that inspires you but I don’t support taking unauthorized recordings and marketing them as features,” Drake explained. “I’ve never worked with Olivia, and I apologize to any fan who was duped into thinking that ‘Control’ was a collaboration of mine.”
Olivia responds via her Twitter:
“Seems we have a mix up guys!we were told that drakes verses were cleared by the producers for my mixtape.it was def leaked but ish happens”
Uhmmmmmmm, I’m not sure if I believe she or her management “didn’t know” that it wasn’t cleared…My thinking is, she sampled in a verse from one of the hottest artists in the game right now, and created her own buzz for her comeback…[just my .02] Olivia…just be hooooonnneeessstttt[in my Drizzy Drake voice] Still a good track!!
