Speaking to Billboard after the show, Drake said:

Stevie Wonder is a very close friend of mine. I’m honored to call him a friend, someone who embraced me very early in this music business. He helped me out with a lot of the music, just came and sat with me, listened to my music, told me where I could add a couple things to make it more sonically appealing, and not only that but we actually are writing together, which is an incredible experience.

Other guest contributors to ‘Take Care’ are thought to include Florence And The Machine‘s Florence Welch, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Jamie XX. It is released in the US on October 24.
