French Montana’s new album They have amnesia arrived, but Drake doesn’t insist. The Toronto native was supposed to appear on the French song “Splash Brothers,” but he reportedly pulled the song at the last minute.
According to TMZ, Drake decided to pull the plug on the partnership after the tragedy at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival.
The news follows the massive fatalities two weeks ago, which left 10 dead and hundreds injured. Officials say the incidents happened during a massive crowd at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival.
The “Hotline Bling” rapper was a surprise guest artist, appearing on stage at the festival at NRG Park in Houston with Scott.
Travis Scott faces $2 billion lawsuit in Astroworld tragedy. Drake, Live Nation, NRG Stadium and others are listed in the complaint filed by 280 people.
After the tragedy of Astroworld, Drake issued the following statement:
“I’ve spent the past few days trying to sort my thoughts out about this devastating tragedy,” Drake wrote. “I hate to resort to this platform to express emotions as delicate as sadness, but this is where I find myself. My heart is broken for the families and friends of those who have lost their lives and for all who suffer.
“I will continue to pray for all of them and will be of service in every way I can. May God be with you all.”
“Splash Brothers” was replaced with a new song called “Fraud” instead.
However, the collaboration single could probably see a release on the deluxe version of the album.
French Montana and Drake have previously collaborated on numerous hits over the years, including “Pop That” and “Stay Schemin.”
