Right Said Fred wants to thank Drake
Drake released his sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy, earlier in the month and it included the chart-topping single” Way 2 Sexy,” featuring Future and Young Thug. The track debuted at NO. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 and has already garnered over 30M views on YouTube.
The smash is a sample and interpolation of English band Right Said Fred’s 1991 hit, “I’m too sexy.” The band, which is made up of two brothers: Fred and Richard Fairbrass, told TMZ that they were aware of the record and heard it while it was still in the making. They also pointed out that they were credited as co-writers of the track.
Fred and Richard also say they’ve seen a surge in their music sales following the release of CLB. To celebrate, the group wants to link with the Toronto icon and have dinner.
