Drake Records Song With Jay-Z for ‘Thank Me Later’
"Everybody is looking for this one joint with me and Jay, so that needs to happen," Drake told MTV in June. "My goal at this point is to keep making that organic music. I don't wanna feel pressure now that I have a single and music that's hot."
Drake sang the hook on 'Off That,' on 'Blueprint 3,' but, to the disappointment of his many fans, did not get to rap with Jay until now. The new song was produced by Tone Mason, and co-produced by frequent Drake collaborator Noah "40" Shebib, and will appear on Drake's highly anticipated 'Thank Me Later.'
"When I heard that beat, the drums that they had come up with, it was like, 'Man, this is a moment. This sounds like where I'm at in my life," Drake said. "So, we took it and 40 did what he does to pieces of music that I see potential in -- he took it to the next spot. Jay-Z's on it. The song is phenomenal. It's done now."
