    • No shade just facts September 27, 2013

      Im not even a fan of bey i stan for pink and mariah
      but ur not in Beys studio are u
      or are u her friend??

      just cos bey has been done for plagiarism
      dont mean she cant write or doesnt
      i do bel;ieve she steals song writing credits though thats obvious
      but i do think she can write too
      clearly just not to mariahs dian warrens or the beatles standards though

    • LOL September 27, 2013

      LOL I KNOW, THAT BASIC HEFFAH CAN’T EVEN WRITE HER OWN NAME WITHOUT SOMEBODY WRITING THE FIRST 5 LETTERS FOR HER LOL

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      She doesn’t need to write her songs. She’s in charge of her career in other ways like the creative direction of her tours, choosing talented backup dancers, and has one of the biggest networths of any pop star after Madonna and Mariah….and btw, she has co written songs and written songs with Destiny’s child. I can garuntee u she contributes more to her artistry and craft than R******’s lazy ass does….

    anyway, great interview.

  10. Yeah I Said It September 27, 2013

    Im not really feelin this album too strong. Maybe on a few more listens.
    But he stays talking about Beyonce in all his interviews. He is very fascinated by her isn’t he? Giving me 15 year old pubescent boy teas. Jay better watch.

    • Nika September 27, 2013

      Welll my advice to you would be instead of riding DRAKE d*** (which u probably never will) – You take your ass back to school and learn the english language and who to write it. #PrioritiesPeople

  12. JoJo September 27, 2013

    How can beyonce been shooting music videos in Houston while she is touring in Latin America?? The Lies write themselfs!!!!

      Yeah its called being rich and riding in private jets…. There pictures of her dancers and crew all over houston.

    • HOWYOULIKEIT September 27, 2013

      No passengers on her plane

  13. christinastherealtalent September 27, 2013

    You know Beyonce’s illiterate ass didnt finish school and can barely maintain a college level speech let alone vocabulary so how can she write a song? If all you have to do is add the word “weave” to a song to claim writing credits, sign my ass up.

    • Bey Fan September 27, 2013

      GO for it….. but im sure with your education level and expanded vocabulary, Im sure you’re making millions like the illiterate Beyonce…right?

      • SLAY_HIVE September 27, 2013

        She’s just bitter. No need to explain why!

    • Love Life September 27, 2013

      Beyonces illiterate ass also took herself all the way to being the first black woman win an ASCAP award. Show receipts for her not earning it.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      H** shut up. Christina Aguilera needed Linda perry to write some of her biggest hits. Sit….

      • FAF September 27, 2013

        @LOVE LIFE NOT TRUE. SHE WAS THE FIRST TO WIN THE SONGWRITER OF THE YR ASCAP, KANDI HAD ALREADY WON OTHER ONES THOUGH IN DIFFERENT CATEGORIES

      • Love Life September 27, 2013

        The first black female to win ‘songwriter of the year ASCAP’ then. Does not change my fundamental point.

  14. SLAY_HIVE September 27, 2013

    I’ve been waiting on this collab FOREVER! My two favorite people together!

    Obviously Beyonce has been in the industry almost two decades, I’m pretty sure she’s capable of writing lyrics. She is very involved in her work and knows what she wants! and plus drake already confirmed she has ” Bars on Bas”. None of you hating b****** were in the studio! 😉

    Drake’s true tea>>>>>>>>>> Hating bxtches exaggerated delusions! GM

  15. Love Life September 27, 2013

    Funny how people act like they’ve been in the studio with Beyonce. She may have stolen like MANY others, doesnt nean she cant write fools.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      Exactly. These ppl are so simple. They will accuse one person of something just cuz of their success and forget it has been done many times. No one is one hundred percent original.

  16. mc the place to be! September 27, 2013

    people who kiss beyonces ass are boring people who don’t are just interesting and get more hype around them #justsayin

    • SLAY_HIVE September 27, 2013

      OR people are just genuinely inspired by her and love her! She has accomplished alot, in a career that spans almost 20 years.Not everyone hates Beyonce, you know! 😉

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      Actually I’ve met plenty ppl who are Beyonce fans who r interesting….shut ur hatin ass up.

  17. Stephy Tha Lambily September 27, 2013

    Beyonce best song I actually believe she wrote are “Independent Women” & “Survivor”… Beyonce is not a true songwriter, she wrote maybe about 10 decent songs but other than that she just pays for her writers critics. Beyonce’s real gift is the ability to perform… Her studio efforts are plain. Live she is like the 8th wonder of the world….

    Plays a song that was written & produced by a real songwriter… “Vanishing”

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      She’s not in the business to be some epic songwriter. She’s an entertainer. Period. I agree. She’s not an advanced songwriter. Who cares? The woman is talented. Give her some credit….

  18. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

    F*****, pansy, pillow biter.

  19. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

    He’s only kissing Beyonce’s ass because Rihanna rejected his ass. He wasn’t stanning this hard when he was saying Rihanna’s name.

    BTW, what happened to the Aaliyah obsession?

    • SLAY_HIVE September 27, 2013

      *plays Girls love Beyonce*

      Plus Drake has stated ,on many occasions throughout the years, that Beyonce is queen and wants to work with her! You LOVE youtube. I’m pretty sure you can find the videos! 😉

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        And he is kissing her ass now because Rihanna rejected him.

      • SLAY_HIVE September 27, 2013

        She rejected him? Were you a fly on the wall? and what does that have to do with his love for Beyonce??

        I need receipts

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        It has everything to do with his current Beyonce obsession when he wasn’t obsessing this much when saying Rihanna’s name.

      • SLAY_HIVE September 27, 2013

        ummm ok, if that makes sense to you! 😉

  20. Diamond Princess September 27, 2013

    Beyonce DOES NOT write a DAMN thing. I lost so much respect for her when I found out a white boy wrote bootylicious, a song like so many she claimed she wrote. Drake is a musical genius but he’s such a lame dude. Fighting over a girl in the club, obsessing over an amazing but deceased woman, and his latest kissing ass! He only wrote a song about bey and worships her now that rihanna no longer gives him the time of day. He’s a weirdo to put it lightly

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      I lose respect for Rihanna’s online bullying, her laziness, and unwillingness to rehearse….but I still like her music. This hostility u ppl have for celebrities goes too far sometimes. They r humans like u. Not robots. No one is perfect. Get over it…

  21. Super Cisus September 27, 2013

    Songwriter my ass!!!!!!

  22. XXX September 27, 2013

    Aw dont be salty Drake praises Beyonce. He always has even before Rihject. And I cant wait to hear what hes done for her!

    • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

      You’ll wait till hell freezes over because Beyonek music is never coming out.

      • XXX September 27, 2013

        Ok darling. I can live. Not sure about you though.

  23. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

    I really want to know which song Beyonek has written, I really want to know.

    Which 5th grade education level nursery rhyme has she written?

    • KangBey September 27, 2013

      hating h**!

  24. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

    Beyonek can barely speak, can hardly write coherently past the level of a poor 5th grade student and is incapable of any creativity.

    You expect me to believe Beyonce, who is the only celebrity close to the thinking capacity of a r*****, cab write a song from start to finish, f****** bye Drake.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily September 27, 2013

      Hi Lovebird! You get you some rest baby

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        Plenty of rest, thank God it’s Friday.

    • XXX September 27, 2013

      But you stan for Britney Spears who apparently ‘cant hold a conversation’ and got fired from X Factor for her lackluster vocab

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        And who’s ONE album has outsold all of Beyonce’s combined album sales.

      • XXX September 27, 2013

        Yeah, and then ended up getting majority of her other albums outsold by Beyonce. That one.

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        Don’t think she cares considering Beyonce will never see the numbers Britney had with her debut and sophomore.

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        TWO Diamond albums, does Beyonce know what that looks like?

      • XXX September 27, 2013

        I dont care either. Since Beyonce clearly doesnt need a Diamond album since she owned Britney from 2003 onwards. Now back on topic now we’ve established what Britney we are talking about…. You stan for her? Who has an even worse reputation for being robotic than Beyonce.

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        Robotic? When Britney sounds much more intelligent than Beyonce’s 5th grade education level of speaking and has some more albums than Beyonce ever will. Oh and who Beyonce has failed to out gross on tour (Circus tour > I was world tour, even with less dates).

      • XXX September 27, 2013

        Simon Cowell and Adriene Ballon disagree.

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        Simon who’s show is tanking in the ratings? The voice had got twice the viewership of Flop Factor to 3 times better ratings.

      • XXX September 27, 2013

        Yes that Simon. The one whos responsible for your other fav Leonayy Horsefaces existance. That one.

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        Leona Lewis who can sing circles around your fav in her sleep.

      • XXX September 27, 2013

        Sing circles according to you maybe but the Leona who cited Beyonce as one of her inspirations. That one.

    I can’t even see Beydropout writhing songs like “Twinkle little star” …Cut the s***! That b**** vocabulary is shorter than list of number ones..

  30. Emeral September 27, 2013

    Drake is cute. He’s not afraid to be a big softie. And people need to get over the fact people genuinely respect Beyonce. I would rather take the word of the many people who have actually met her than pressed people with too much time on blogs.

  31. Emeral September 27, 2013

    A Drake and Beyonce collab would be everything. So he basically confirmed it.

  32. HoneychildPlease September 27, 2013

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      You’re taking it too far. Beyonce is still a smart woman, a good mother, and she has at least a high school education like most celebrities these days. U dont need college to prove you’re smart or to make it. Ask Johnny depp .

    • huh September 27, 2013

      “can can write songs” ?
      “yet alone” ?

      lmaooo

    LOL BEYONCE WRITES AS MUCH AS BRITNEY SINGS LIVE LMAO…

  44. Brandys Starr September 27, 2013

    Beyonce is not a songwriter alas Lauryn Hill. Her talent is not song writing its translating songs and performing songs. But I believe she can pull together lyrics and contribute to a song. She has a lot of songwriters too and loves the $ so she’ll put her name on the credits like people Rihanna and Britney because she knows every time that song is played, she’ll get paid more.

    If you don’t want to stand your ground like Dianne Warren (who loves Beyonce but has HER name and her name alone on the I Was Here credits lol) then don’t go work with Beyonce. Because the game is a business and she treats its like a business too. She is not the first to do that.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      Really good insight. Ur right.

  45. Kendall September 27, 2013

    That picture is so feminine though. But I like watching Drake interviews. He’s one of the few rappers who doesn’t come across arrogant in the slightest.

  46. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) September 27, 2013

        The first one but since you made more I agree with them too

  48. Tyler September 27, 2013

    I know Lovebird isn’t trying to talk about beyonce when his own damn fave isn’t capable of doing anything but twitter thugging and running a motherfucking muck during her flop ass Rihinstones Tour.

    • Tyler September 27, 2013

      *Rhinestones

  49. Loyalty September 27, 2013

    Pressed by the few seconds out of the entire interview Drake speaks on Beyoncé. Typical.

  50. Loyalty September 27, 2013

    Anyone would you think some of you have been in her womb, studio sessions and house the way you preach assumptions like fact. I don’t even think stans believe they know her personally like that.

    • Loyalty September 27, 2013

      would think*

  51. ratedxxx(bitter b****** always first) September 27, 2013

    I f**** with drake…..

    I ain’t gonna front, beyonce sometimes does write some of songs, or at least half of them…

    have you ever listen to video phone, beyonce wrote the lyrics, or at least some of them….
    basically all the basic songs, beyonce writes the majority of them

  52. How Many Drinks (Miguels Wifey) September 28, 2013

    Yes Beyoncé can write. No shes not on some Lana Del Rey level but she can write and co writes a lot.
