James Blake opened up Drake’s OVO Fest this year and now the Brit singer is remixing the rapper’s music. Pitchfork shares that the crooner has remade Drake’s “Come Thru.” James flips the beat and adds his own vocals to the track.
Earlier, Drake had teased that he was working with James but the extent remains unknown. “I saw him at a show and told him I had some ideas knocking around, and he invited me to Toronto,” James said to Rolling Stone.“Anything that comes out of that studio, I’m happy to be involved.”
The music of Drake and Blake seems to just go together. Philly producer/DJs Bombé and Mr. Caribbean made their own Drake/James mash-up album back in 2011 for just that purpose.
James has been collaborating with other rappers too. Recently, Chance The Rapper added his twist to Blakes’ “Life Round Here (remix)” and the duo hooked up for the dreary song’s music video.
