Drizzy proclaimed himself the "light-skinned Keith Sweat," and the R&B veteran approves. "It's real flattering for someone to be on the top of their game and pay homage and acknowledge who I am and what I've done in music and what I've done in my career," he told Complex.com, joking that the lyric means he's "still relevant," and noting that his name is "used most in hip hop songs."
Although busy with his dating website, Truelovemeets.com, the "Make It Last Forever" crooner wouldn't turn down a collaboration invite from October's Very Own. "I only met him one time in New York, we crossed paths, and he acknowledged me and I acknowledged him. I told him I was a big fan. Hopefully one day him and I could do something. I could do a hook. I could do a cameo in the video, that would be hot."
Drake hasn't said anything about a potential feature from Sweat, but he is a huge R&B fan whose main music fix is Aaliyah. He's rapped about the songbird, tattooed her picture on his back and is executive producing a posthumous album of her unreleased music.
