Drake Signs ILOVEMAKONNEN to His OVO Sound Label

Further proving his astute A&R ability, Drake has added one of Atlanta’s brightest new talents to his stable of artists. According to Miss Info, 25-year-old singer ILOVEMAKONNEN is the latest to sign to Drizzy’s burgeoning label, OVO Sound.

Of course, it was only a couple of weeks ago when Drake jumped on MAKONNEN’s buzzing hit, ‘Club Going Up on a Tuesday,’ and subsequently pushed him into the national spotlight. Since then, rumors of a partnership have been circulating the web, but the news was confirmed early this morning as the ATLien tweeted an image of OVO Sound’s logo with the caption, “Goodnight.”

The label has also released ‘Tuesday’ — both the original version and the Drake-assisted remix on iTunes.

In addition to their evermore popular collaboration, there appears to be a genuine bromance brewing between Drake and ILOVEMAKONNEN. The crooner was spotted hanging out backstage at Drake and Lil Wayne’s tour stop in New York earlier this month, before joining Aubrey on stage to perform ‘Tuesday’ in his hometown of Atlanta on Sunday (Aug. 31).

ILOVEMAKONNEN, whose real name is Makonnen Sheran, joins fellow R&B artists PARTYNEXTDOOR and Majid Jordan on the label, as well as rapper OB O’Brien. The singer is another solid coup for Drake and his growing OVO Sound imprint.
