The Weekend made his debut back in 2011 when Drake featured him on his song “Crew Love” from the Take Care album. Even though their relationship has not always been the best The Weekend recently page homage to Drake in an interview on Beats 1.
Abel says that the two have a pretty good relationship:
“He came in as my big bro and showed the world what I could do. From then on, he’s always been supporting me and I’ve always been supporting him. Behind the scenes, we’re still very close but it’s cool that the world can see us doing our own thing. OVOXO will always be there.”
He also went on to talk about how he has contributed to Drake’s projects in ways that many may not know about:
“I gave up almost half of my album. It’s hard. I will always be thankful—if it wasn’t for the light he shined on me, who knows where I’d be. And everything happens for a reason. You never know what I would say if this success wasn’t in front of me now.”
Although previously, Drake went on to say that he and Abel’s relationship really wasn’t looking good, but it’s all good now:
“We’ve both had our moments where we’ve maybe felt a way and taken it maybe a little left, but I can sit here and say I have nothing but love for everybody over there. I loved watching last year. It made me super happy. Well deserved.”
I wonder if we will get a collaboration from these two in the future…
