RememberÂ back when Rapper Drake called out Olivia for using his vocals on her mixtape! Olivia is angry and confused that he said he did not authorize the use of his vocals because its a mixtape…I have no idea what that means!
According to MTV,
“I support artist collaborations and sampling music that inspires you, but I don’t support taking unauthorized recordings and marketing them as features,” Drake said in the statement last month. “I’ve never worked with Olivia, and I apologize to any fan who was duped into thinking that ‘Control’ was a collaboration of mine.”
“I think that was corny, because it’s a mixtape,” she said last week while visiting MTV’s offices. “[Drake] started off doing mixtapes. Are you serious? You really serious right now? I was like, ‘Wow.’ The producer sent it to me, everything was done. I’m thinking [Drake’s] part was signed off on. The producers sent it to us saying, ‘It’s done. Can you do the record?’ I’m like, ‘Sure.’ I was recording with Sean Kingston then, so it took us awhile to get back to them. Finally sent it back to them. … Soon as we sent it back, we heard [the song] was out. So when I heard everything going on, I was like, ‘Is he trying to hate right now?’ I’m confused. I thought that was what mixtapes were for. First of all, we heard you got paid for it. It was cleared. So I’m like, ‘Wow. That’s how we doing right now?’ But I’m good, ’cause you gave me more publicity. Thank you! Shout-out to Drizzy!”
Under the Radar features the controversial Drake record, plus other guests, including Maino, Serani, Webstar and 50 Cent.
SeriouslyÂ it all comes down to politics…had Drake been an unknown rapper…no oneÂ wouldÂ have said anything but since Drake has blown up…he wants his due…lol!
