Artificial intelligence has not only begun to revolutionize the world of communication with ChatGPT. No, AI, in all its forms, is about to transform every industry: including music.
A new AI-generated song featuring a fake Drake and The Weeknd is taking the Internet by storm. The song is called “Heart on My Sleeve” and it’s all the buzz on TikTok and Twitter.
Supposedly, this one was created with nothing more than the use of an AI: meaning there was no human involved in the making of a song that no one would be able to tell if it’s real or if it’s fake.
Right from the start, you hear the Young Metro intro with Drake starting the opening verse. It’s incredibly good and sure sounds like something Drake might have even written, experts claim. The same goes for Weeknd’s chorus.
At first glance, you might think it’s a leak of a new song, but Twitter sleuths claim it’s not, and that it’s solely the work of a robot.
Now, as for who may have created this track and why, there is one theory that makes a lot of sense. something. It all seems to have started with a TikTok account called ghostwriter977.
That account claims to have the full song in the link in their bio, but when you click on it it takes you to a strange site that then asks for your phone number, with the promise to send you the song that way.
The site the link takes you to is owned and operated by a startup company called Laylo and they promote themselves as being able to give creators more tools to reach more fans/subscribers.
The researchers stop short of saying that the song is the work of Laylo, but it should come as no surprise that this is all ultimately a brilliant marketing campaign by a US startup focused on artificial intelligence.
As for Drake and Weeknd… yeah, they might want to get in on this. Because this song is too good to go out into the world without their signature.
