Posted By on December 8, 2009

    New Young Money star Drake recently talked about his new "Unthinkable" collaboration with singer Alicia Keys calling it one of the most cherished moments of his music career so far. "Alicia Keys, they reached out and she said she really wanted me to do something on her project but she wanted me to do me, not do an Alicia Keys record," Drake explained in an interview. "And man, she gave me one of the best studio experiences in my life, like when I got there, instead of being like 'All right, here's the beat, get to work,' [she said] play me your favorite songs and let's battle. Let's battle. You play me your favorite record, we'll go one-for-one. You play me a record and I'll play you a record. And everybody was in the studio and — it was turning into this heated party, we were all just loving music, you know?" [Drake Says He Battled Alicia Keys On New Collaboration – Watch Here]

    Drake says it turned out great. "It almost like transitioned from great music to making a song, no one even noticed it but she started playing keys and I just started writing melodies and we came up with a song that I think could really be a big record for her song. I wrote most of the record and she produced it…It was probably one of the best moments of my career." [Drake Says Alicia Keys Collab Turned Out Great – Watch Here]
