The Weeknd to play active role on Drake’s new album

In his latest interview with MTV, Drake opens up on the sound of his upcoming sophomore album, Take Care. Fellow Toronto native, The Weeknd, appears to play an active role as he has co-written and collaborated on four songs of the LP which is set to hit shelves on November 15.

“He’s like a writer, collaborator on four songs on my album which I’m very proud of. I usually don’t branch out writing-wise working with other people. I usually like to write all my own stuff, but we get it. We try to tap into the same emotions because we’re from the same city.”
