AceShowbiz - Drake is seemingly still dealing with the tragic incident that happened at Astroworld Festival. In the wake of the deadly concert, the "Girls Want Girls" singer reportedly pulled his new song from French Montana's upcoming album.
The 35-year-old's new feature on French's forthcoming album won't be hitting streaming platforms soon, as TMZ reported. The "Scorpion" artist was set to be featured on a song called "Splash Brothers", which has reportedly been pulled from Apple Music and other streaming services where the album will drop without warning.
Sources close to Drake told the publication that Drake didn't think this is the best time to put out new music since he has to respect those impacted by the deaths that occurred almost two weeks ago. The "Certified Lover Boy" himself reportedly is still "reeling" from the deadly concert, which killed ten people.
While French has been gearing up for the release of his "They Got Amnesia" album, sources said that the 37-year-old rapper respected Drake's decision to pull the song. The so-called inside source further explained that the single will reportedly be released on the deluxe version in the future.
Drake has been hit with a lot of heat since the Astroworld tragedy, including lawsuits related to his involvement in the festival. The latest suit is seeking $750 million from Travis Scott (II), Champagne Papi, Apple Music as well as Live Nation following 10 lives being lost following the concert.
The lawsuit was filed by Houston attorney Tony Buzzbee. In the legal document, Tony said, "No amount of money will ever make these Plaintiffs whole; no amount of money can restore human life." The lawyer added, "But, the damages sought in this case attempts to fix, help, or make up for the harms and losses suffered by these Plaintiffs -- nothing more and nothing less."
Travis and Live Nation had offered refunds to concertgoers. However, Tony called it "a transparent and grotesque effort of the Defendants to limit their liability, after the fact, to the families of those killed or injured" in the lawsuit.
