Why Does Drake Credit R Kelly On ‘Certified Lover Boy’? here is the reason
Drake’s Certified Lover Boy includes some well-known cameos like Jay Z and Nicki Minaj. Surprisingly, R Kelly also comes up when Drake certified it on his album. This left fans baffled.
The reason Drake credits R. Kelly
When Drake certified R Kelly for his new album, chaos ignited and fans began to question. R Kelly is a 54-year-old singer-songwriter who is credited with the song ‘TSU’.
Drake’s CLB album was released on September 3 and includes an N* song credited to R Kelly. According to The Independent, some people believe this theory. But it still needs to be confirmed as no official statement has announced it. Drake used the sample from Kelly’s song Half on Baby. However, that does not mean that Kelly will receive any payment for this.
However, this whole situation has left people surprised. They are questioning as R Kelly is indicted on racketeering charges and faces trial in New York City. There are charges against him that he was involved in sex trafficking and used young women and even teenagers for his sexual desires in exchange for false promises. Therefore, Drake fans are not happy with him.
Fans have been asking questions on Twitter. They clearly have no idea why Drake gave credit to R Kelly, who is facing allegations.
One of the fans said: “People are defending this R. Kelly credit, talking about ‘it’s a sample’… okay? So Drake chose to test his work, knowing that he would have to clear it with R. Kelly, and that Kelly would receive a check/royalties. He could have removed the sample/track, he clearly doesn’t care.”
Another questioned: “So why would Drake and his crew choose to use a sample that would require an R Kelly credit in 2021? In the middle of his trial?
‘On a 21-track album? Isn’t it like someone is going to miss it? Did you need it badly on the album? another fan asked. With so many questions, people are very curious as to whether it was really necessary to use a sample, so the creators will have to give credit to R Kelly.
Who else is on Drake’s latest album?
Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Travis Scott, Kid Cudi and Given are the big names featured in Drake’s CLB. The album was released on September 3 and is now available to watch on famous streaming platforms.
