The xx’s Jamie Smith Is Making Beats for Drake’s New Album


A little less than a year ago, Vulture took guesses as to which indie-rockers hip-hop would discover next; The xx came in as second most likely. Well, here you go: Jamie Smith says Drake is "a fan of The xx and my remixes and stuff and I sent him some beats. We’re just going to do some stuff for the next album." Drake concurs: "We're working on Take Care together. Jamie is probably one of the most exciting producers I've ever heard." Seriously, this is great news. [NME]
