Washington [US], November 18 (ANI): Grammy-winning artist Drake has halted the release of the upcoming song 'Splash Brothers' with rapper French Montana out of respect for the victims of the Astroworld tragedy.

I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and NRG Park for their immediate response and support. Love You All."
