Jhene Aiko Discusses Working With Drake on ‘Nothing Was The Same’
One of the few confirmed guest appearances on Drake's 'Nothing Was The Same' is Jhene Aiko. The track Jhene will be featured on is called "Momentous Occasions." Fuse caught up with Aiko, so she could discuss her forthcoming Drizzy collaboration.
"Drake confirmed your appearance on his unreleased song "Momentous Occasions." What can you tell us about the track?"
"I am not going to say too much. Recording the song and working with him, period, was a momentous occasion. Because I think he is amazing, like a magical being for me, like a unicorn or something. He is somebody I like to listen to to get inspired and helps me write from an honest place. Recording that song was more of a personal experience because we sat with [Drake producer Noah] 40 [Shebib] and I got to help pick the beat, take it home and record to it. That was more of a collaboration than other tracks I've done."
