Jamie XX helped co-produced Drake’s single titled ‘Take Care’ featuring Rihanna from his sophomore album, but today he’s hard at work making more beats for Drake that could potentially be on Drake’s junior album “Nothing Was The Same”. Jamie sat down with MTV recently and touch upon some topics concerning Drake.
Will you be working with Drake again?
I went to visit him in the studio at the end of last year to see how his album is going and we played each other some music. It sounds really good. I’ve sent him some bits and pieces for the album but he’s very, very busy and gets a lot of stuff in and out. Even with the last album, he was to and thro with tracks and wasn’t sure what was going to go on and what wasn’t. I don’t know what’s going to come out of it but hopefully we can do something together for it.
What was the sound like of the tracks you sent him?
I went to Barbados for the week and went to a bashment party, which is amazing. It’s just a street party which they have every weekend but it’s a rare occasion in England. It’s a carnival-type thing. Then I went back and made some bashment-style beats, which I sent him and really like. I don’t know what’s going to happen with that.
Have you had any conversations of working with Rihanna?
I remember being at a Drake gig and being backstage with her but being too shy to go up and say hi. It’d be cool to do stuff. We’re all massive fans of hers. She did that one track [“Drunk on Love”] where she samples our song.
