Drake Is Glad He’s ‘Delivering’ With Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige Collabos
Drake can confirm that at least one of his major collaborations will be a single soon. He said to look for his record with Mary J. Blige to get a full push soon. Funny note on that record: Besides blowing her a kiss at the Summer Jam concert a couple of weeks ago and her catching it, Drizzy still hasn’t formally met the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul.
Everybody has been talking about a Jay-Z record featuring Drake that’s supposed to be a big summer single leading into the Blueprint 3′s release on September 11. Well, Drake said he did work with Jay, but Hov has not yet confirmed that their studio tag-team will be a single.
“The Mary thing was set up as a single,” the Young Money White Knight said on the set of the “Best I Ever Had” video in Brooklyn a few days ago. “The Jay thing, I don’t now how official that is. I just read that on the Internet. But it’s cool. I’m glad the work I’m doing is something that people are even considering putting out as a single. ‘Cause singles, you have to be confident in those songs when you’re talking about singles. It’s great. I’m glad that I’m delivering for people.”
