West Coast singer Jhene Aiko has stepped forward to confirm her appearance on Young Money star Drake’s upcoming Nothing Was The Same and detailed the album recording process with him.
Careful with her words, Aiko revealed Drizzy allowed her to pick their joint track’s beat.
“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)
Cash Money Records head Birdman recently said Drizzy will change the music game with his upcoming LP.
Baby is one of the few who has gotten a preview of Drizzy’s upcoming Nothing Was the Same LP, and it left some impression on him. “I think Drake he’s one of those n—as that’s gonna change the game every time he come, because he’s a talented animal. He’s somethin’ I never been around before,” said the music mogul responsible for the careers of Lil Wayne, Juvenile and Nicki Minaj. “He bring it to another level,” Bird said of Drake’s artistic drive. “It be amazing to watch him. You got a Drake, you got a Wayne, you got a Nicki, you got all the little homeys who’s turnin’ the corner and everybody is super talented. It’s just something amazing for me to witness in my lifetime.” (MTV)
