(AllHipHop News) Drake has a much publicized affinity for 90’s R&B, so it is no surprise that the Canadian-born rap phenom is scheduled to work on new music with TLC singer, T-Boz according to the singer in an interview with Rap-Up.
In the interview, the FanMail singer says she plans on hitting the studio with Drake and his go-to producer, Noah “40” Shebib and calls Drake “one of the special ones.” The multi-platinum R&B icon praised Drake’s lyrical content as well as a similarity between the two that might not be the most obvious. “I think he would write perfect for my tone, because he sings in that register that I sing in.”
This is not Drake’s first encounter with the TLC legacy as he covered the group’s 1999 record, “Fan Mail” for his song “I Get Lonely Too” from his shelved R&B mixtape It’s Never Enough. Recently, Chilli of TLC posted a pic on her Twitter account of herself and T-Boz signing Drake’s “Protection is the Priority” TLC shirt.
Drake’s fixation with 90’s R&B caused a bit of controversy last year when he announced plans of working on a posthumous Aaliyah album without consulting Timbaland and Missy Elliott. No new songs have been released since the inception of the controversy following the release of the Drake-assisted “Enough Said” record back in August of 2012.
