After their infamous club fight in June 2012, the world pretty much ruled out any chance of a Drake and Chris Brown collaboration. But that’s all changed since the superstar duo were spotted together in the recording studio. Why collab now? Drake couldn’t pass up the “potential to be epic,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Drake, 27, and Chris Brown, 25, won’t let an old rivalry over Rihanna, 26, ruin a potential hit song for both of them! The singers confirmed they were in the studio together in an Instagram photo posted by Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson. In the pic, Chris looks like he’s singing — and Drake listens approvingly. This is all happening because Drake won’t let anything — or any feud — stand in the way of his career!
Drake: Why The Rapper Agreed To Record Music With Chris Brown
Not even a club fight can keep Drake from collaborating with another famous musician. “Drake’s always been about his music and making his money and no one will ever come between that — not even Chris Brown,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“There are no issues between them whatsoever as you can see. Drake has always said he doesn’t have a problem with Chris and he meant that,” our source reveals. Drake couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a hit!
We think right now is the perfect time for these two to record music together — we can’t wait to hear how the track (or maybe even tracks!) turns out!
Drake: He Doesn’t Care What Rihanna Thinks About Collab With Chris Brown
We previously reported that Chris was a big fan of Drake’s music and was open to recording with him. But one person who most likely was NOT open to this? That’s Drake and Chris’ ex, Rihanna. We’ve learned that Drake doesn’t really care what Riri thinks about this collab!
“He’s sure Rihanna doesn’t agree with him working with Chris, but at the end of the day, he’s going to make his own decisions,” a source close to Drake tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “And like he told Rihanna from the jump, he’s about his music and that comes first — even if it is doing a collab with Chris.”
What do YOU think about Drake putting an “epic” song and making money over an old feud, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
