Drake has made it clear in several interviews that he is not a fan of dance music. In fact, Drake has called out Pitbull and producer David Guetta’s music for not having “integrity.” Check out what he told NME Magazine below:
“For me, the David Guetta stuff just doesn’t work,” he said. “I don’t really wanna go there. There’s other artists, that’s their sound. They feel in order to thrive internationally that they gotta do straightforward, four to the floor, David Guetta, Pitbull music.”
Drake says that he is open to creating music for the genre but insisted his work has ”integrity and soul,” which would be watered down by working with an artist like Guetta.
“They feel in order to thrive internationally that they gotta do straightforward, four on the flour, David Guetta, Pitbull music,” the 25-year-old Take Care rapper stated. ”For me, I’d rather go to somebody like [producer] ‘Jamie xx’ and tell him, ‘Look, I really wanna turn the club upside down, but I wanna do it with integrity, with soul.”’
David Guetta has previously worked with Young Money artist Nicki Minaj on two tracks – “Where Them Girls At” and “Turn Me On.” I wonder if Drake is saying that Nicki’s tracks don’t have any integrity either?
