Drake’s new album Certified Lover Boy has dropped early morning on Friday, September 3, and it appears that the Canadian hitmaker has boldly included R. Kelly as a co-lyricist on one of his songs.
The song that the disgraced R&B singer appears to have co-written is “TSU.”

‘TSU’ samples NSYNC‘s 1997 track ‘Sailing’, according to Genius. It also gives partial songwriting credit to R. Kelly, who is currently on trial for racketeering, sex trafficking and child pornography. Details of Kelly’s involvement in ‘TSU’ are unclear at present.
Earlier this week more testimonies on his trial where on the court stand.
One of R. Kelly’s accusers testified on Wednesday that he kept a gun by his side while he berated her as a prelude to forcing her to give him oral sex in a Los Angeles music studio. “He had a weapon, so I wasn’t going to step out of line,” the witness said
Drake’s album was released after several delays. It consists of 21 tracks and includes a number of cameos and appearances by artists including Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Kid Cudi, Giveon, and Travis Scott among others.
