It’s been confirmed that Makonnen and Drake’s OVO Sound label have decided to part ways. After Drake signed Makonnen back in 2014, he released two project on the OVO Sound Label, but recently dropped his Drink More Water 6 EP solely via Warner Bros.

There was speculation earlier this year as to whether Makonnen was dropped from the label, which later faded away. Now, it seems there may have been some truth to the story.

Makonnen released a statement addressing the issue which you can read below.

‘I cannot thank OVO, 40, Oliver, Future & Mr. Morgan, enough for all that they have done for my career. No words can express how much I appreciate Drake for being a part of the success of Tuesday. I’m sure the haters will have something negative to say, but all in all my choice to be solely on Warner Bros Records was the right thing for me and for my best interest. Sorry there’s no beef to report, DRINK MORE WATER!’ -Makonnen
