Some people love posthumously released vocals, some don’t. But Drake‘s Album has one of Michael Jackson‘s family members speaking out.
When interviewed by TMZ, Michael Jackson’s Nephew, Austin Brown, says that Drake using his uncle’s unfinished vocals on ‘Scorpion’ was not cool with him.
He’s quoted saying: “I mean, I’m not OK with it.” … “I feel like, if he didn’t finish it, you shouldn’t use it. [I] respect the artist, I just don’t feel like it’s OK to use someone’s vocals and [undecipherable] change them. It’s music at the end of the day. It’s art.”
According to XXL, “Drake may have obtained the vocals from Canadian singer-songwriter, Paul Anka, who recorded unreleased sessions with Jackson in the early 1980s and is credited as a co-writer on the Drake and MJ collab.”
