Drake credited R. Kelly on his new album, and fans are angry

What a wild and chaotic choice of songwriting.

Drake’s latest album, Certified sweetheart, dropped on September 3, and so did some of his fanbase after finding out he credited R. Kelly as a co-author.

Fans are obviously a little angry, considering everything man has done.

The disgraced singer is currently on trial for sex trafficking and crime.

So what’s really going on? Well, R. Kelly is credited for the track “TSU” as a composer along with Justin Timberlake and T Mosley.

Many speculate that this is because Drake sampled an NSYNC song on the track, and according to Rolling Stone, “TSU” uses the same symphonic intro in R. Kelly’s single “Half on a Baby,” which led to his composer credit.

Either way, fans are not very happy about it and they have taken to Twitter to say their opinion.

It is safe to say that many fans were “disgusted” by his credit.

Not #drake wearing a tattoo of Aaliyah while collaborating with p3do R. Kelly on his new album #CLB on the “TSU” track. Disgusting.

One person said this was a “terrible choice”.

@morcgreen Nah Drake did not use lyrics by R Kelly. The sound of owls or strings from R Kelly’s song is what is sampled at TSU. When a song is sampled, it falls under co-authors. That sound is not even necessary, they had to remove it to remove R Kelly. He made a terrible choice

Another person mentioned that this is not Drake’s first use of an R. Kelly song.

Lmao. However, this is the third time Drake tries and credits R. Kelly. “Lose You” tries “Ignition Remix” “Long ago” tries “Clipped Wings”. Then there is the TSU that credits Kelly …

Another person pointed out that he might have chosen not to try it, but he did it anyway.

People defend this R. Kelly credit and talk about “it’s a test” … okay ?????? So Drake chose to try his work, knowing that he would have to deal with R. Kelly and that Kelly would get a check / royalties. He could have done away with the test / track, he obviously does not care.
