Drake’s producer reveals why R Kelly had to be given songwriting credits on song ‘Certified Lover Boy’

Sharing is caring!

The producers of Drake are clearing up some of the confusion and backlash on a song from his brand new album, Certified Lover Boy.

Noah “40” Shebib highlighted on Instagram over the weekend why R. Kelly was to be credited with songwriting on “Tsu”, citing an article that claimed the controversial singer was a co-songwriter on it.

In fact, R Kelly doesn’t even appear on the album.

“On a song called ‘tsu’ at the beginning is a sample of OG Ron C talking. Behind that faintly which you can’t even hear is an r Kelly song playing in the background,” he explained in the comments on an Instagram post. “It has no significance no lyrics are present, r Kelly’s voice isn’t even pres

He continued, “doesn’t sit well with me let me just say that. And I’m not here to defend drakes lyrics, but I thought I would clear up that there is no actual r Kelly present and it’s a bit misleading to call him a co lyricist.”

The track, “Tsu”, uses an introduction from the 1998 single, “Half on a Baby”, where R. Kelly is credited as songwriter due to the sample.
