They were seen in the studio together during the making of Nothing Was The Same, but a collaboration between Drake and James Blake never appeared on the final cut. Despite not being featured on today’s Song of the Day, Blake decided to completely revamp the production to one of the highlights of NWTS, “Come Thru”.
What was one of the smoothest cuts from Drake’s smash album, “Come Thru” became something completely different when Blake took the reins. With heavy synths and a techno/dance vibe, especially after Drizzy’s intro, Blake’s production slightly dominates Drake’s flow but its unexpectedness, especially compared to the original, makes Blake’s version of “Come Thru” deserve a listen.
