The 25-year-old rapper/singer/producer hails from Los Angeles, recently residing in the ever growing music scene of Atlanta. Earlier this year, ILOVEMAKONNEN released his self-titled EP, lead by the underground cult favorite “Going Up on a Tuesday” produced by Sonny Digital. The popular record caught the attention of Drake, who added a verse on the official remix that’s available now on iTunes.
Along with the remix, the original record was made available on iTunes at midnight on Monday. Renamed as just “Tuesday,” the iTunes credits also notes the new signing to OVO Sound. Earlier this month, ILOVEMAKONNEN was spotted backstage at the Queens, New York stop of Drake and Lil’ Wayne’s “Drake vs. Lil’ Wayne” tour, along with performing “Tuesday” during the Atlanta stop on Sunday night.
ILOVEMAKONNEN joins the newly formed OVO Sound, which includes Drake, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, and OB O’Brien.
