All hip-hop fans are talking about is Drake’s album that just dropped.

However, some are not happy after fans noticed that R. Kelly is listed as one of the writers on “TSU.”

Apparently, this is because the sample used reimagined version of Kell’s song “Your Body is Calling.”

Now fans are venting about it on social. One said, “People are defending this R. Kelly credit, talking about ‘it’s a sample’… okay?????? So Drake chose to sample his work, knowing he’d have to clear it with R. Kelly, and that Kelly would get a check/royalties. He could’ve done away with the sample/track, he clearly doesn’t care.”

Do you think Drake was wrong to sample R. Kelly?
