MTV reports on an incident involving Olivia’s unauthorized use of his vocals on a track and “calling it a feature” for her Under The Radar mixtape. Drake released the following statement:

“I support artist collaborations and sampling music that inspires you, but I don’t support taking unauthorized recordings and marketing them as features. I’ve never worked with Olivia, and I apologize to any fan who was duped into thinking that ‘Control’ was a collaboration of mine.”

Olivia responded on MTV’s Mixtape Daily:

“I think that was corny, because it’s a mixtape,” she told the network. “[Drake] started off doing mixtapes. Are you serious? You really serious right now? I was like, ‘Wow.’ The producer sent it to me, everything was done. I’m thinking [Drake's] part was signed off on. The producers sent it to us saying, ‘It’s done. Can you do the record?’ I’m like, ‘Sure.’ I was recording with Sean Kingston then, so it took us awhile to get back to them. Finally sent it back to them. … Soon as we sent it back, we heard [the song] was out. So when I heard everything going on, I was like, ‘Is he trying to hate right now?’ I’m confused. I thought that was what mixtapes were for. First of all, we heard you got paid for it. It was cleared. So I’m like, ‘Wow. That’s how we doing right now?’ But I’m good, ’cause you gave me more publicity. Thank you! Shout-out to Drizzy!”
