The Weeknd’s Demo Of “Crew Love” Surfaces (Sans Drake)

A sign of things to come?

The Weeknd recently revealed in an interview with Beats 1 how vital of a figure Drake was for his career. "He came in as my big bro and showed the world what I could do," The Weeknd explained. "From then on, he's always been supporting me and I've always been supporting him. Behind the scenes, we're still very close but it’s cool that the world can see us doing our own thing. OVO/XO will always be there."

A week later, Tesfaye's demo of his collaboration with Drake on the 2011 song "Crew Love" surfaces minus the Toronto Rapper.
