Young Money’s Drake has clarified recent comments made by his Nothing Was The Same collaborator Jhene Aiko after claiming they worked on a new track called “Momentous Occasion.”
Drizzy did not reveal the song’s actual title but promised Aiko was wrong.
“40. Gonzales. Jhene Aiko. Might be my new favorite song. @JheneAiko @chillygonzales @OVO40,” Drake tweeted August 9.

Careful with her words, Aiko recently revealed Drizzy allowed her to pick their joint track’s beat and announced the song’s alleged title.
“I am not going to say too much. Recording the song and working with him, period, was a momentous occasion. Because I think he is amazing, like a magical being for me, like a unicorn or something. He is somebody I like to listen to to get inspired and helps me write from an honest place. Recording that song was more of a personal experience because we sat with [Drake producer Noah] 40 [Shebib] and I got to help pick the beat, take it home and record to it. That was more of a collaboration than other tracks I’ve done.” (FUSE TV)
Drizzy revealed Jhene would appear on his new LP in early June.
“And trust…the information will come to you. Soon enough.,” he tweeted June 2nd.

Last month, Young Money producer Detail provided some information on his in-studio session with Drizzy during the album’s production process.
“I just came back from Canada working with Drake. I went out there to get the Canada lifestyle and it was great. He took me to a concert. [We] smoked some hookah. [It was a session] for Nothing Was The Same. That album is phenomenal. The way he works is confirmation that I know what I am doing personally. That’s why he called. That tells me I know what I am doing when I go out there and I just see the body of work and hear it. I see where he sees me fitting in, which is dope because he is kind of doing what I do. He seems to feel as versatile as I am, and I am filling those blanks.” (XXL Mag)
