Following the release of Certified Lover Boy, fans are now outraged at a writing credit that appears on Drake‘s sixth studio album. Alongside Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, embroiled singer-songwriter R.Kelly is credited as a writer on the eighth track on the project, “TSU.”
R. Kelly is acknowledged for his contribution as the opening of the song samples his song “Half on a Baby” released in 1998. Fans are unhappy that the disgraced artist, currently being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York, will be receiving royalties from the success of the track.
Drake’s longtime friend and producer Noah “40” Shebib has now addressed the situation in a reply to an Instagram post. “40” notes how the sample came to be on the track produced by Harley Arsenault, Noel and OG Ron C, revealing his personal opinion and calling claims that R. Kelly is a co-lyricist on “TSU” misleading.
