Due to the enormous rush at the Astroworld event and the tragedy that ensued, Drake has allegedly postponed the release of his collaborative song with French Montana titled Splash Brothers. On Friday, Drake will release his latest album, They Got Amnesia, which includes the upcoming single.
However, according to TMZ and Variety through People Magazine, the song has been removed from the album and will most likely be featured on the Deluxe Edition. The music has apparently been removed from streaming providers such as Apple Music, Spotify, and others.
For those unfamiliar, Montana and Drake have cooperated on several albums throughout their careers, including singles like Pop That and Stay Schemin'. According to People Magazine, the decision to postpone the track occurred after a major stampede at the Astroworld event during his guest performance on Travis Scott's stage killed ten people and wounded hundreds more.
Drake also stated following the tragedy, offering to help in any way he can. "My heart breaks for the relatives and friends of those who have died, as well as everyone who is in pain." I will continue to pray for them all and will assist them in any manner I am able. Oh, my God! "My heart breaks for the bereaved families and friends, as well as everyone else who is suffering. I will continue to pray for them all and will assist them in any manner I am able. May the blessings of God be upon you all "According to his statement.
Currently, the lawyer representing 125 Astroworld Festival victims and the family of a deceased attendee has filed a $750 million lawsuit against him and Travis Scott.
