This past weekend, the blogosphere hastily reported on an unheard Drake
cut entitled "Whatever Became Of You," featuring Colin Munroe and Dawn Richards. Check that out below.
Colin Munroe's management reached out today to clear up where the track came from, and what was done with it prior to Drake passing on it.
"Where Were You" is a collaboration between Toronto producers Boi-1da and D10 and Capitol Records artist Colin Munroe. The track was originally titled "Whatever Became of You" and was submitted for Drake's 2010 release 'Thank Me Later'. Drake recorded additional features on the track. Although the song didn't make the album's cut, that didn't diminish the excitement for the track.
Meanwhile, Colin recorded a solo version, keeping his original chorus and penning new verses. The official version of the song appeared two weeks ago on Colin Munroe's mixtape #UnsungHero. It's still called "Whatever Became of You". It's was produced by Boi-1da and D10 with additional production by Colin Munroe. 40's engineer, Noel Cadastre mixed the joint. We're really glad that it's part of Colin's repertoire. It's a beautiful and haunting track that definitely deserves some shine.
