You can no longer say Drake ghostwrote for Kanye West on his Ye album.

That's because Drake's been credited for his contribution to the track "Yikes".

He hadn't been before, but that situation was remedied on Tidal.


 

Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg was the first to report that Drake wrote the hook for "Yikes" but didn't get any credit. Given that Kanye's artist Pusha T has been coming at Drizzy for using ghostwriters this was especially notable.

"It is now a confirmed thing that Drake wrote the hook for 'Yikes," Rosenberg said after Ye dropped. "It may be the best melody on the album when you go listen to it. You'll hear it now and go, 'oh, that does sound really good.' [Kanye] gets a double congratulations in my opinion. They didn't credit [Drake]. They said they like 'forgot.' They left him off, he doesn't have a writing credit."

Now that's been fixed.
