It has been confirmed that Drake’s next mixtape will feature DJ Black Coffee’s Superman.
The internationally acclaimed DJ has confirmed that he has been working with US superstar Drake on a new rendition of the hit track.
Sometime before the end of last year, Drake hinted at a new version of Black Coffee’s Superman in an Instagram video. Nevertheless, both parties did not confirm the speculation that they were cooking up something together.
However, Black Coffee confirmed the rumours during an interview with East Coast Radio’s Phat Joe. He revealed that Drake had called him the night before to let him listen to the track and to know what he thinks about it.
Speaking on the matter, Black Coffee also revealed that the song would be featured on Drake’s highly-anticipated upcoming mixtape. While fans frowned at the idea of giving his song to Drake, DJ Black has a better plan.
“He is going to take the song to another level. People are going to love his version of the song but it won’t erase the original…People had mixed feelings‚ like; ‘why would you give someone else your song? It is your song! Why are you letting them shine on the song?’ But my understanding is different. I would love for our music to be exported on that level‚” he said.
The DJ’s manager Amaru Da Costa said they are still sorting out the details of the project. It is only only when they done and ready that the management will comment on it.
“We need to finalise everything and once it has all been signed and is ready‚ we will comment on it‚” Amaru said.
Drake has always been a big fan of Black Coffee. The rapper featured the DJ’s Superman track on a special Apple Music radio show of his favourite tracks last year.
