Drake Teams Up With Jay-Z
And learns some lessons...
The Canadian rap star claimed that although he was unable to hit the studio with Jigga to record the track, Hove still gave him a life lesson.
He told MTV News US: "'Light Up' really came from, Jay had a busy year, obviously, with The Blueprint 3 and the success of that and the tour. So we didn't do it in the same room. But me and Jay have a lot of great conversations, man. So it would never just be like, 'I'm gonna send you something, and we're not gonna talk about it, and you send it back. We really talked about it... And Jay's joint on the album is so important on the album, because it's another turning point.
“Whereas Over is a turning point for me, 'Light Up’ - Jay, really, I think it's one of my favourite Jay verses. Jay not only gave me a great verse, but a life lesson. And I think he's gonna give everybody a life lesson just about this business. It's incredible."
