Drake and Erykah Badu have a connection that goes way beyond “Hotline Bling.” In fact, they’re more like family.
“That’s my brother,” Badu told The Fader. “He’s like a little brother to me. I went to Canada and hung out in the studio with him, while he made Take Care. We’re very good friends and we had some great talks. He’s an inspiration to me. Sonically he’s in a place where I want to be.”
That’s high praise for Drizzy, who rapped about their bond on last year’s “Days In The East.” “Remember one night I went to Erykah Badu house,” he rapped on the track. “She made tea for me/ We talked about love and what life could really be for me.”
Wow, Erykah sounds like a really cool big sister.
