Noting that Kelly, 54, doesn’t actually appear on the album’s eighth trackTSU,” Shebib, 38, explained why Kelly had to be credited in order to usea sample of OG Ron c talking.

Behind that faintly which you can’t even hear is an r Kelly song playing in the background. It has no significance no lyrics are present, r Kelly’s voice isn’t even present but if we wanted to use Ron c talking we were forced to license it,” 他继续, referring to the beloved DJ and on-air personality, detailing, “Doesn’t sit well with me let me just say that.

And I’m not here to defend drakes lyrics, but I thought I would clear up that there is no actual r Kelly present and it’s a bit misleading to call him a co lyricist. It’s kinda wild cause I was just reading ‘Baby Girlby Kathy Iandoli and the recounts of some of that stuff is horrific and disgusting,” Shebib added of the biography of Aaliyah, who was previously married to Kelly.
