Drizzy had lots of help.
Drake used an astonishing 81 different writers on his new album ‘Views’ according to reports.
The Canadian rapper, who has been criticized in the past for his use of ghostwriters, appears to have received lots of help on his latest project.

While its not surprising for artists to use writers, the large number may come as a shock to some fans, who may have previously assumed Drizzy wrote all of his own music.
In comparison, Beyonce has listed 72 writers on her new album ‘Lemonade’.

Reference tracks for songs such as ’10 Bands’, ‘Know Yourself’, ‘Company’ and ‘Legend’ have all leaked.
