Abel Tesfaye did an interview with Beats 1 radio on Apple Music just before dropping his new album “Starboy” where he opened up about his relationship with his fellow country man Aubrey, aka Drake. Weeknd cosigned the idea of recording a joint album with Drizzy just like Kanye and Jay Z did with “Watch The Throne.”
“Maybe. Why not?” he said about the question of dropping a joint project. “It’s dope, like Kanye and Jay Z, when [Watch the Throne] happened.”
Sources inside OVO camp told us this morning that The Weeknd and Drake spoke after that interview about the idea of a joint album and both sides are in agreement that they should make it happen. “Both these guys are the biggest names in music right now so you know they are both extremely busy,” sources revealed. “Everyone want to see this project happen, but the only challenge is getting them in the studio given their busy schedule with tour and working on their own solo projects.”
Drake seems to confirm the reports when he liked a post on Instagram about a joint album between himself and Weeknd. He also show his support for the new album “Starboy” on IG. Drizzy himself is about to drop his new album “More Life” which is due sometime in December.
A few months back there was some rumors circulating that The Weeknd and Drake were beefing, but the “Earned It” singer dispelled those reports calling Drizzy his big bro. “He came in as my big bro and showed the world what I could do,” the R&B singer said. “From then on, he’s always been supporting me and I’ve always been supporting him.
