Drake Talks Justin Bieber Collaboration: ‘It’s Everything You’d Imagine’
Drizzy and The Biebs? What a collab.
Drake recently spoke about working with his fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, calling the process “very cool” and alerting fans that the partnership will amount to “everything you’d imagine” a great song between these two to be. That, we don’t doubt.
The ‘Take Care’ singer said that the reason his collab with The Biebs was so effortless is due to their shared love of melody. “It sounds like everything you’d imagine a great Justin Bieber and Drake song would sound like,” he told Capital FM. “We meet on the ground of melody he’s always like ‘Yo, you’re melodies are so crazy’ and ‘give me the craziest melody,’ so we sat there for a night and it was actually a great studio process.”
The pairing was truly collaborative, as Drake revealed that he and the ‘Boyfriend’ singer would hit the booth for 10-mintue intervals and hum it out. No, seriously.
“He would hum melodies and then he would walk out and then I’d be like ‘I like this one’ and then I’d go in and we sort of started coaching each other and amping each other up,” Drake shared, giving fans an intimate insight into how they twosome worked it out. “He would like chime in when I was in the booth and be like ‘Yo, that was the one.’ It was cool, I’ve never done that before but we would basically just alternate and go in and test out melodies and we picked out about four that we liked — with no words — put them into order and then we’re going to now write a song to that.”
That’s what made the process so cool — it was unique and unconventional, like these two artists themselves.
The song may end up on ‘Believe,’ The Biebs’ new album set to drop this summer.
