The overflow of Drizzy’s recent emo rap ballads like “Trust Issues” and “Marvin’s Room” have many wondering who he’s been collaborating with. Well the cameras should get a good look at fellow Toronto native The Weeknd. Drake sang the young man’s praises in this post OVO Feat interview.

“Not only did he inspire me to get out there and sing better on stage, he inspired me writing wise, music wise, just to better my product. He’s on my album a lot. We really collaborated a lot on this album. He’s one of the greatest artists I’ve ever heard. To hear someone with an incredible body of work is very rare. It’s very inspiring. We formed OVOXO, which is taking over right now. I’m proud of him. He works real hard. He’s just an incredible person, [has] become a really close friend to me.”
