Drake hinted at a possible collaboration with The Weeknd as he recently took to Instagram to share a photo of them in a studio in Toronto. "@abelxo SCARY TINGS," Drake captioned the photo. Drake later posted a shot of the studio, and simply captioned it, "@abelxo."
The photos also proves that Drake and his "Crew Love" collaborator are currently on good terms with each other. As fans know, rumors suggested that the two Canadian artists were feuding after The Weeknd turned down the offer to join Drake's OVO label and signed with Republic Records instead.
However, The Weeknd dismissed the rumors. In an interview with Complex magazine, the 23-year-old singer said, "No, that's not true. Definitely not true. But it makes sense. The thing about Drake is I told him what my decisions were going to be. And he was down with it from the beginning."
Drake was being supportive of his pal's decision. "People make their own decisions. He went on to do something that he felt was a great decision. More power to him," he told Elliott Wilson on EVR Radio earlier this year.
"I talk to him all the time and I look forward to whatever he has coming in the future. I wouldn't call it a parting of ways. I just think people reach a point where they need to make decisions," Drake added.
Drake and The Weeknd have collaborated in several tracks. They collaborated on The Weeknd's "The Zone" and Drake's "Crew Love" and "Shot for Me". They will release their new albums this fall. The Weeknd's "Kiss Land" is set to hit stores on September 10, seven days before Drake's "Nothing Was the Same" arrives.
