Drake Claps Back at Person Who Says The Weeknd Wrote Most of 'Take Care'

“Don’t try me.”

By //Music

Drake posted an image of Take Care‘s original tracklist on Instagram in celebration of the album’s sixth anniversary today. After Complex shared the post on one of the publication’s accounts, one user took a jab at the rapper by saying that Take Care was mostly written by The Weeknd. Drake, to everyone’s surprise, took time to respond to the comment and clarify what actually went down. “Abel Tesfaye CO WROTE on ‘Shot For Me’ and ‘Practice,’ obviously was featured on ‘Crew Love’ and ‘The Ride’ and that’s it,” Drake replied. “There’s 20 songs on that album … don’t try me.”

The commenter’s statement is not without merit, however. A good deal of songs that Weeknd had written for House of Balloons did happen to end up on Take Care. Abel once stated in a 2013 interview that he “gave up almost half of [his] album” but that he is “thankful” because he would not know where he would be if it “wasn’t for the light [Drake] shined on [him].”

Check out the comment and Drake’s response below.
