Here we are, OVOXO dreaming once again.
Drake put The Weeknd on the spot regarding their OVOXO collab as he joined him on stage as one of his guests during OVO Fest on Monday (Aug. 7th) saying,”I don’t want to do this to you on stage,” he told his fellow Canadian. “But I feel like that OVOXO project has to happen at some point. I just want to say that.”
This isnt the first time an OVOXO collab was mentioned. The Weeknd spoke on it in a Beat1 Radio interview saying OVOXO will always be there, “He came in as my big bro and showed the world what I could do,” he said. “From then on, he’s always been supporting me and I’ve always been supporting him. Behind the scenes, we’re still very close but it’s cool that the world can see us doing our own thing. OVO/XO will always be there.”
Naturally, rumors began to swirl as to why it hasn’t happened it and many came to the conclusion it was because The Weeknd chose not to sign to OVO even though he began his career under him. The Weeknd still felt a way about giving up half his album to support Drake’s Take Care album,”I gave up almost half of my album.It’s hard. I will always be thankful—if it wasn’t for the light he shined on me, who knows where I’d be. And everything happens for a reason. You never know what I would say if this success wasn’t in front of me now.”
Though the two superstars seem to be on good terms now, teaming up for several songs since, it is still unclear as to if we will ever get an OVOXO project but, we sure do hope so.
