Drake Samples Emotions Remix On New Album


Listen to Drake's "Emotionless" here:




"For Drizzy’s version, he put a slight spin on the title with “Emotionless” as Mimi’s pleasantly piercing soprano vocals open the track and backdrops his bars on the record." (BET)

"The track opens with a familiar vocal courtesy of Mariah Carey and her iconic single "Emotions." The song was of course Mariah's fifth consecutive number one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, reaching the top of the chart in 1991. The version Drake samples is from a (very) slightly less familiar version, the remix that was done by C+C Music Factory. It's one of the best vocal performances of all time, imho." (The Fader)

"A triumvirate of beatmakers in The 25th Hr, 40 and No I.D. hold down the production side of Drake's album standout cut "Emotionless." The track samples a club mix to Mariah Carey's "Emotions" throughout. The hit record notched Mariah her fifth straight No. 1 record on the Billboard Hot 100 and powered her album of the same. 
"Emotionless," new on the Hot 100 at No. 8, samples a remix of Mariah Carey's three-week 1991 No. 1 "Emotions," although she is not credited as an artist on "Emotionless." As a co-writer of "Emotionless," via its sample, Carey earns her 25th Hot 100 top 10 as a songwriter. " (Billboard)
