Drake spoke with MTV backstage in Houston, Texas last week about when he will start working on new music again and what upcoming tracks we can be looking forward to that be released soon! Drizzy says he will start work in a proper studio (not a tour bus booth) on June 18th and also says he will be featured on French Montana’s upcoming “Pop That” single also featuring Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, and Justin Bieber’s “Right Here” song produced by Hit Boy.

“I’m really excited to start working on new music. I start like June 18,” Drake told MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway when the two met backstage in Houston on May 17.
“I got a studio bus out here so me and 40 started working on a couple joints the other night. Just getting warmed up,” he continued. “I did like the ‘Amen’ track for Meek Mill and I did ‘No Lie’ for 2 Chainz.”
“I’m on French Montana’s single; me, him, Ross and Wayne, which is a crazy lineup,” Drake said. “And then on Justin Bieber’s record. I wrote a song for him as well.”
At the time of the interview, Drake wasn’t sure of the name of the Bieber record or if the song would even be included on Justin’s upcoming Believe LP. “Awkward Justin Bieber moment,” Drizzy joked after pondering the very slim chance that he wouldn’t make the final cut. “Yeah, we’ll see. It’s a good song though; produced by Hit-Boy.”
