Drake & Olivia: “He Said, She Said” (by J. Tinsley)

Posted by Mr. Put On on April 13, 2010

I’ve been had, hoodwinked, bamboozled and all those other words. Remember Olivia? The former “first lady of G-Unit.” Yeah, her. A couple of days ago, the songstress leaked a record featuring Drake called ”Control.” It was posted on several sites and can be found via a simple Google search. Apparently she has a mixtape gearing to drop, aptly titled Under The Radar,and, of course, you’re going to leak the song with Drake. It only makes sense. But that’s where things get dicey.

Lady O says it’s real, but according to Aubrey himself, via Miss Info:

“I support artist collaborations and sampling music that inspires you but I don’t support taking unauthorized recordings and marketing them as features. I’ve never worked with Olivia and I apologize to any fan who was duped into thinking that Control was a collaboration of mine.”

Hmmm. You don’t say. Something seemed odd about the song to begin with. Not because Drake doing  a song with Olivia seems far-fetched (I believe he would under the right circumstances), but rather because the song didn’t add up.

1) Drake’s flow was totally different than what it is now. On “Control,” this was the flow Drake was using during his Room For Improvement days. Not saying he still can’t rap like that, but that was the first signal.

2) This song obviously wasn’t an old or unreleased track based on Olivia’s reference to Fabolous and “Throw It In The Bag.”

This is the classic case of “see-what-had-happened-was.” The crazy part is, the song isn’t bad. It’s not great, but it’s decent. If you still haven’t heard it, feel free to make the decision on your own.

And as a bonus, here is Oliva’s best song ever. At least the best one I have ever heard.
