Fellow Canadian Drizzy Drake has helped bring attention to Weeknd. Suspicions arose when Drake started cryptically tweeting lyrics from HoB. Later, our homie Miss Info confirmed that Drizzy and Noah “40” Shebib are indeed down with Weeknd. Although Weeknd isn’t signed to Drake, Aubrey and 40 are mentoring him, which makes perfect sense since his mixtape picks up where Thank Me Later left off. Drake even brought Weeknd out on stage during a Juno Awards afterparty. But being cool with OVO has its drawbacks though, like how Weeknd had to go on Twitter just to say 40 did not produce on House of Balloons.
