Snapshots: Drake meets Jon B

Having oft spoken about his admiration for R&B singer Jon B, Drake recently got the opportunity to meet one of his many inspirations, as last night he and producer Noah “40” Shebib kicked it with him at a show in Irvine, California.

Drake sampled the crooner’s “Calling on You” on Take Care‘s “Cameras,” a move that Jon was truly flattered by.

“I was so complimented by that,” he said in a February interview. “I’m a huge Drake fan. … We have mutual respect for each other.”

He reiterated that respect with the Facebook post that accompanied these photos.

“Big Respect to My Fam @Drake for Showin me Love last night at his show He Killed It-One of the Most Humble ppl I’ve met in the industry. Its nice to know the respect is mutual. Big up Drake,” he wrote.
