From one Canadian to another.
The Weeknd and Drake more or less came up together. They frequently collaborate, run with the same crowds, and both call Toronto their hometown. So, all things considered, a Drake/Weeknd remix is not so outside the realm of possibility.
The Weeknd's latest LP, Beauty Behind The Madness is enjoying a healthy string of top 10 singles. One of the strongest tracks on the record is the Kanye produced "Tell Your Friends," the latest Weeknd opus to get the music video treatment.
Drake takes the Weeknd's mid-tempo, piano led ballad, and Drakifies it. The rapper spills all his feelings on this one, with lines like "this time it's different, you give me purpose." We get the full Drake experience on this remix, complete with singing, feelings, and some throw away lines about needing someone.
