Makonnen Sheran, aka ILoveMakonnen, is the latest signing to October’s Very Own, the label spearheaded by Drake.
The Atlanta-based emcee and producer caught a lot of attention with the release earlier this year of his self-titled EP, which featured the buzz tracks “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” and “Club Goin Up On a Tuesday.” The latter was a big hit with Drake in particular, with the Canadian rapper remixing the track on Aug. 12 with an additional verse.
Now the pair have got even tighter, with Drake announcing he’d signed the artist to OVO Sound, which is distributed by Warner Bros Records and founded with producer Noah “40” Shebib and Oliver El-Khatib. The label spilled the beans on the Makonnen signing proper with messages posted on Twitter and Instagram overnight which promote the release of the “Tuesday” remix featuring Drake, which is now available on iTunes.
The current OVO Sound artist roster also includes PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, OB O’Brien and, of course, Drake. Makonnen took the stage to perform the song during the Atlanta leg of the Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour. Watch the clip below.
