Drake joined Smiley on a new single, “Over the Top,” which was released via OVO Sound last week. Tay Keith produced the track.
Drake, who had cited Smiley as an “inspiration,” specifically with regard to his 2018 album Scorpion, teamed up with him on his 2019 song “Organization.”
A day after finding out Smiley was one of the most-nominated artists for the 2019 Grammys, Drake uploaded a video of himself shirtless in the pool, sipping a drink and cooling down to the intro track off Smiley’s A Tape to Remember.
In a recent interview with Compex Canada, Smiley revealed how he got into contact with Drizzy. “A long time ago, it was 2014 or something like that. He heard those songs and I guess he paid close attention,” Smiley said.
“And then when I took a break and I came back, I dropped this one song called ‘Hit’ . That was the first time I’d ever seen that Drake knew who I was or anything; one of his boys posted my song, and he commented under it and said, ‘Smiley = G.O.A.T.’ And then that’s when I was like, ‘Oh f**k, this guy knows who I am and shit.’ So then, probably a couple of days later, he followed me on Insta.”
