He may be a regular at the top of the charts, but it appears that Drake isn’t a fan of a fair few of his peers on pop’s biggest platform. In a recent interview with NME, the Young Money superstar expressed his dislike for the club-orientated Euro-Pop sound that currently dominates the mainstream.
“For me, the David Guetta stuff just doesn’t work. I don’t really wanna go there. There’s other artists, that’s their sound. They feel in order to thrive internationally that they gotta do straightforward, four to the floor, David Guetta, Pitbull music,” he said.
On the contrary, he did give props to British producer and one-third of The xx, Jamie xx, whom he has previously stated his desire to work with on his next album. “Look, I really wanna turn the club upside down, but I wanna do it with integrity, with soul,” Drake said.
David Guetta and Pitbull watch out. Rap’s biggest name might just make your sound obsolete.
