Drake’s 90s nostalgia is very well documented — first his obsession with Aaliyah, kisses with Tatyana Ali, and now he’s hitting the studio with T-Boz and Chilli — and as it turns out Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins is also an admirer of the Young Money rapper.
“I think Drake is awesome. He’s so talented. He’s one of the special ones,” T-Boz recently stated to Rap-Up TV.
Drizzy has never been shy about showing his love to T-Boz, Chilli, and Left Eye. He sported a FanMail T-shirt during rehearsals for the VMAs and even covered the group’s song FanMail on 2010’s I Get Lonely Too.
“It’s an honor when someone appreciates your work and they do something, so I don’t trip on stuff like that. I think it’s a compliment actually,” said T-Boz of Drake’s remake.
Now the nostalgic Drake is linking up with T-Boz in the coming days to record some new music. “I think he would write perfect for my tone because he sings in that register that I sing in,” she said.
