“Certified Lovers Blog“y” is a popular song recognized by fans, but those who conduct in-depth research and analysis of the album have to ignore the fact that the disgraced singer R. Kelly is listed as the author of the album.
Given the history of R. Kelly’s alleged sexual abuse and predatory behavior, and the fact that he was on trial for some of these suspected crimes, this is a message that makes fans morally divided.
according to Hot New Hip HopThe credit goes to Drake’s sample of Kelly used in his song “TSU”, which represents Texas Southern University, a historic black college located in downtown Houston.
According to reports, the sample song in question is “Half on a Baby” by R. Kelly. Justin Timberlake (Justin Timberlake) also happened to create credit for this song.
Fans definitely questioned Drake’s choice to use the R. Kelly sample, especially considering his love for the late Aaliyah, who had a tattoo.
Although some people say this is a bad choice at best, others think that Drake’s move should be cancelled.
Music fans have been arguing on social media. Some people believe that considering the amount of music Kelly produces and contributes, it is difficult to get rid of Kelly’s influence.
