Kyla On Featuring With Drake And Wizkid – Filipino singer Kyla has spoken about what it felt like being featured by Drake on his upcoming album.
According to Kyla, she didn’t believe it when she was told Drake wanted to feature her on a track, thinking it was April Fool’s.
“I got a call a while back,” Kyla told BBC Radio 1Xtra. “And I was getting loads of emails. To be honest, I was really bad and kept putting them aside like, ‘I’ll call later.’ You know how it is, sometimes we’ve had things come in and they fall through at the last minute.”
“When we phoned, the company said, ‘A huge international star wants to sample your tune, and they wanna have a meeting with you.’ I was like, ‘Yeah ok, who?’ And when they said Drake, I was like, ‘Yeah right!”We signed papers, and I still didn’t believe it,” she continued. “I had a feeling someone was gonna say to me ‘April Fools.’”
Kyla added that the deal then moved from Drake sampling her song to her actually being given a feature. “They said they wanted it to be a sample at first,” she said. “That’s what they originally contacted me for, then when we got on the phone and had chats, they were like ‘how would you like to be a feature instead?’”
Kyla featured with Wizkid on the song titled One Dance, off Views From The 6, which drops later this month.
