Continuing their extended sit down, Drake talks with MTV News‘ Sway on his relationship with his OVOXO compatriot The Weeknd. We’re all curious if the singer/songwriter hailing from Toronto will continue to stay independant, or possibly try his hand at a major label. Drizzy touches on Weeknd’s label situation and being involved in his career.
“As far as on paper, it’s all being worked out, but that’s not really what counts anyway. What counts to me is the fact that the affiliation is so known, and that’s all I really care about. I want to continue being involved in his career and vice versa and keep making music together, because you take songs like ‘Crew Love’ and ‘The Zone,’ that’s what people wait all night to hear. If you want to talk about evolution — a quick evolution — that’s definitely somebody who, everywhere I go, they love him.
“We’re definitely a family, it’s a definitely a Toronto thing. That’s not changing at all.”
After the jump, Drake speaks on the evolution of his stage show during his current “Club Paradise” tour….
