Drake‘s all-star roster of artists for his new album ‘Take Care’ is getting more impressive with news that soul legend Stevie Wonder has been added to the project.

“Stevie Wonder is a very close friend of mine,” the Canadian rapper-singer told MuchMusic backstage at the OVO Fest in Toronto on Sunday (July 31). “I’m honored to call him a friend, someone who embraced me very early in this music business. Stevie Wonder is actually on ‘Take Care.’”

Drizzy says getting in contact with the 61-year-old pianist wasn’t difficult at all, he’s simply a phone call away. “So I hit him, asked him to come by, and with no hesitation he hit me back like, ‘I will be there,’” he says.

The 24-year-old superstar also added that Wonder recorded six songs for the project. The Motown legend even lend an ear to help musically shape the young singer’s second album. “He helped me out with [much of] the music,” Drizzy explained. “[He] just came and sat with me, listened to my music, told me where I could add a couple things to make it more sonically appealing, and not only that but we actually are writing together, which is an incredible experience.”

Along with Wonder, rappers Lil Wayne and Rick Ross will appear on Drake’s ‘Take Care’ album, which is due on the singer’s 25th birthday, Oct. 24.
