OVO Sound boss Drake is all here for R&B singer Kehlani‘s new It Was Good Until It Wasn’t album. In addition to unleashing a massive co-sign, he also responded to stories that he helped Lani pick out her project’s title.
6 God Facts
This week, Drake went to his Instagram Story to clear up speculation and hype. The 6 God co-signed Lani’s project and seemed to deny that he had anything to do with its name.
“😂😂😂nah why is this the headline though… anyways your album is incredible the headline should be “Kehlani drops a life soundtrack” congrats @kehlani @boi1da BLESSINGS!!” -Drake’s Instagram
Kehlani originally said Drake helped her confirm what the project would be called during a conversation at his Toronto home. She had been in the 6 finishing recording with executive producer Boi-1da.
When asked how she came up with the album’s title, Kehlani responded, “Well, I didn’t come up with it.” “We had went to Canada to finish our, I always say ‘our’ album because I fuck with my team so heavy, like, it was me, my videographer, my little play brother that I co-write with, my assistants,” she said. “So, I went to go finish the project, and the last day we went with Boi-1da and ended up going to Drake’s house.” She went on to describe how their conversation led to her realizing the name of the release. “We’re just having, like, a life conversation, talking about the old music, talking about what we’re both ’bout to do. And then I was just talking about [my] personal life and I was just like, ‘Man, yeah it was good until it wasn’t’ and he was like, ‘Say that shit again,’ and I was like ‘What?’ and he was like ‘That’s your album.’ And I was like, ‘You might be fuckin’ right.'” (Complex)
