The Weeknd and Drake Have coma a long way as There have both locked in and worked on some music for Take Care, which included The Weeknd giving up some of his own music to appear on the album. “I was like ‘dude, take anything’” he recalls about that time. He gave up songs like ‘Crew Love’, ‘Shot For Me’ and ‘The Ride’.
Late 2017 Drake Opened up. After a fan commented, saying that Abel wrote the album. Drake responded on the Complex post, saying “Abel CO WROTE on Shot For Me and Practice, obviously was featured on Crew Love and The Ride and that’s it…there’s 20 songs on that album…don’t try me”.
Some time in 2016 the original version of ‘Crew Love’ leaked online and today, another demo track from that era has made its way online. Called ‘Practice’, which The Weeknd of course co-wrote on. Though it’s not so similar, but it’s definitely an interesting listen.
