Drake and Chris Brown have not always been friends, prompting Drake to look back on their turbulent past for CB's birthday.
A few years ago, it would have been unthinkable to see a new song featuring both Drake and Chris Brown. The two recording artists did not like each other but, in recent years, they put their differences to the side and became friends. The two have collaborated several times in the last year, including on their hit record "No Guidance." Most recently, Chris Brown popped up on the Dark Lane Demo Tapes for another link-up with the Toronto native.
Celebrating his birthday this week, Chris Brown welcomed a lot of love from his fellow artists. Some of the biggest stars in the world took the opportunity to call out their favorite songs by the singer, and Drake looked back on all that they had survived to get to where they are now.

"More life more music more success for you @chrisbrownofficial," wrote Drake on Instagram Stories. "We came a long way over the years my g."
Finally, these two vocalists have found some common ground and are able to deliver some much-needed collaborative joints for the world to enjoy.
CB turned 31 this week, bringing in his special day with a cake designed by his 5-year-old daughter Royalty. He also got a b-day shoutout from his son Aeko, who is currently on the other side of the world in Germany.
