OVO Sound leader Drake has updated fans on his personal relationship with Young Money labelmate Nicki Minaj amid her publicized romance with rap rival Meek Mill.
Despite his love for Nicki, Drake admitted he is not as close to her as past times.
“I don’t really talk to Nicki. Another person I have a lot of love for … She dealt with me how I would expect her to – with class. I always have respect and love for her. Unfortunately, we haven’t spoke.” (Beats 1)
Drake also spoke on his bond with rap star Jay Z and his presence on their “Pop Style” collaboration.
“Jay didn’t really do a verse. I was just trying to get ‘Ye on it first. Jay kinda just did my first few lines for me and that’s how we flexed it … It didn’t play out how I wanted it to go. Sometimes (Jay) and I just fall on opposite sides of the spectrum. It’s always mutual respect but sometimes it has to be from afar.” (Beats 1)
The rap superstar has kept busy this week promoting his new Views album.
Speculation on Drake’s new album possibly pushing out 2 million copies has developed.
With YMCMB/Republic’s Drake hitting on Friday, it’s anticipated the megastar will have a massive first week, with some insiders asking if Views could debut with two million. The set will be an Apple exclusive for the first seven days of release, with physical product expected as soon as the exclusive lifts. (HITS Daily Double)
