Drake Fires Shots at Fan Who Said The Weeknd Wrote Most of ‘Take Care’
Drake celebrated the six year anniversary of his album Take Care earlier this week, sharing a photo depicting a younger Drizzy pondering an early version of the full-length’s tracklist, with a Blackberry phone on the table for the full nostalgia factor (BBM, anyone?).

When Complex reshared the image on one of their Instagram channels, one user decided to take a jab at Drake, claiming The Weeknd was mostly responsible for Take Care’s songwriting. To everyone’s surprise, the Canadian rapper took time out of his busy tour schedule to reply directly to the commenter.
“Abel Tesfaye CO WROTE on ‘Shot For Me’ and ‘Practice,’ obviously was featured on ‘Crew Love’ and ‘The Ride’ and that’s it,” Drake responded. “There’s 20 songs on that album … don’t try me.”
The user’s comment does have some merit, however. The Weeknd claimed in a 2013 interview that a number of tracks originally intended for his House of Balloons mixtape instead appeared on Drake’s sophomore album.
