Drake vs. Olivia

Drake was none too happy when reality star and R&B songstress Olivia repurposed an old, unreleased verse of his for "Control," a song from her mixtape Under the Radar. "I support artist collaborations and sampling music that inspires you, but I don't support taking unauthorized recordings and marketing them as features," Drake said in April. "I've never worked with Olivia, and I apologize to any fan who was duped into thinking that 'Control' was a collaboration of mine." Olivia didn't hold her tongue in response. "I think that was corny, because it's a mixtape," she told MTV. "He started off doing mixtapes."
