Published Aug 01, 2011On Sunday (July 31), Drake invited some of his famous friends to join him onstage for his second annual OVO Fest in Toronto. Guest appearances included the likes of Nas, J. Cole and Lil Wayne, but the biggest surprise of all was the inclusion of soul legend Stevie Wonder. Now, Drake has revealed that Wonder will also be all over his upcoming Take Care album.
Speaking with MuchMusic, Drake explained that his relationship with Wonder goes way back. "Stevie Wonder is a very close friend of mine. I'm honoured to call him a friend, someone who embraced me very early in this music business," he said.
Drake continued to explain that Wonder will appear on his upcoming sophomore album. "This is an exclusive right here, because it's MuchMusic, and we're Canadian: Stevie Wonder is actually on Take Care... He helped me out with a lot of the music, 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."
Take Care will be released on October 24 via Young Money. The album is also expected to feature multiple appearances from the Weeknd.
