Drake's New Artwork Appears to Rip Off Björk Producer Rabit

Drake's New Artwork Appears to Rip Off Björk Producer Rabit”

While fans eagerly await the release of his rumoured 2018 album, Drake has treated fans to two brand new songs with his 'Scary Hours' EP.

Now it's being reported that "God's Plan" alone has broken US Spotify's record for most streams in a single day with 4,326,679. Both are set to appear on his new "Scary Hours" project.

Interestingly enough the news of Drake's record-breaking achievement came on the same day that his man LeBron James became only the 7th player in National Basketball Association history to reach 30,000 points.

It was reported back in 2016 that Drake and Swift had been working together, but so far no kind of collaboration has emerged. On his Instagram page, Rabit posted a side by side comparison of his artwork to Drake's EP cover art.

"Today I wake up to see OVO (Sound, Drake's own label) has redone one of my 2015 tour posters designed by @collindfletcher for Drake's new single", he wrote. "Poor Collin is always having his style stolen". According to Pitchfork, the artist's latest song, "God's Plan" now holds the title for the most streams in a single day ever.

"Hopefully this results in a larger conversation about popular culture's relationship to underground artist".

A source "close to the situation" claims that the artwork was one of several offered to the label, and says OVO did not commission the piece.
