Drake has decided to hold on to his new music a little longer before releasing it due to the Astroworld Festival, where 10 died and hundreds of other concertgoers were injured.
The Canadian rapper, who joined Travis Scott on stage for the Nov. 5 concert in Houston, Texas, has decided to pull the song “Splash Brothers” out from French Montana’s upcoming album “They Got Amnesia.”
Drake’s decision was made out of respect for the Astroworld victims, according to reports.
French Montana’s album was released on 19 November. “Splash Brothers” featuring Drake was intended to be included on the album but was removed “without warning” from streaming services, including Apple Music. It is said that the song will be released on the album’s deluxe version in the future.
Insiders with knowledge about the released claim that Drake is still dealing with the aftermath of Astroworld. The 35-year-old artist reportedly feels it is not an appropriate time to come out with new music, hence he pulled his song out of French Montana’s album.
Astroworld’s death toll climbed to 10 earlier this week when it was confirmed that Ezra Blount, a nine-year-old concertgoer, succumbed to his injuries.
“I am saddened to learn of Ezra’s death this evening,” Sylvester Turner, the city’s mayor, posted. “Our city tonight prays for his mom, dad, grandparents, other family members, and classmates at this time. They will need all of our support in the months and years to come. May God give
Blount was the youngest victim at the festival. The Blount family is seeking at least $1 million in damages. The others who died ranged in age from 14 to 27. Around 300 people were treated at the festival site and 13 were hospitalized.
