Here's why you didn't know the Michael Jackson sample in Drake's new song

Drake's new album Scorpion is breaking all sorts of records, and is all anyone is listening to. One of the songs on his album "Don't Matter To Me" uses a unfamiliar sample, from a musical icon.  At first listen. I thought this "Don't Matter to me, it don't matter to me what you say" line was sung by The Weeknd. 

In reality it was sung by the artist The Weeknd gets compared to often, it was the one and only Michael Jackson. The reason why the song was not recognizable is because it was never released.  "Don't Matter To Me" is one of the many songs recorded in the 80's that was never put out. It was co written by Paul Anka, who also co wrote "Love Never Felt So Good" the song that was given new life when Justin Timberlake added a verse on it, and made it a duet essentially. 

Drake has given proper credits to Paul Anka and Michael in the song, but one of Michael's nephews is not happy with the sample. 

Austin Brown is Rebbie Jackson's son and was asked by TMZ last week in Hollywood.
