Last month Drake issued a statement denouncing a song featuring his vocals on Olivia’s new Under The Radar mixtape saying, “I’ve never worked with Olivia, and I apologize to any fan who was duped into thinking that ‘Control’ was a collaboration of mine.” This month, Olivia is calling him corny because of it.
Says Olivia: “I think that was corny, because it’s a mixtape. [Drake] started off doing mixtapes. Are you serious? You really serious right now? I was like, ‘Wow.’ The producer sent it to me, everything was done. I’m thinking [Drake's] part was signed off on. The producers sent it to us saying, ‘It’s done. Can you do the record?’ I’m like, ‘Sure.’ I was recording with Sean Kingston then, so it took us awhile to get back to them. Finally sent it back to them. … Soon as we sent it back, we heard [the song] was out. So when I heard everything going on, I was like, ‘Is he trying to hate right now?’ I’m confused. I thought that was what mixtapes were for. First of all, we heard you got paid for it. It was cleared. So I’m like, ‘Wow. That’s how we doing right now?’ But I’m good, ’cause you gave me more publicity. Thank you! Shout-out to Drizzy!”
