He spilled the details of his Drake collaboration in an interview with East Coast Radio’s Phat Joe earlier this month. “He is going to take the song to another level,” he said of “Get It Together.” “People are going to love his version of the song but it won’t erase the original…
People had mixed feelings, like, ‘Why would you give someone else your song? It is your song! Why are you letting them shine on the song?’ But my understanding is different. I would love for our music to be exported on that level. Black Coffee has had a successful 2016 where he won BET Awards for Best International Act for Africa and had been nominated for other award shows such as the MOBOs and MTV EMAs.
The “playlist” project has already being received by fans widely and 10 songs were charted on billboard twitter in the early hours of it’s release. Drake is currently on The Boy Meet World tour in London.
