AI continues to make headlines and it doesn’t look like this will change in the coming months. This time we are not going to talk about GPT-4, ChatGPT or Bing. What has happened on social networks throughout this weekend is even more interesting: Drake and The Weeknd have composed a viral song together or, at least, that is what it seems at first glance.
listening to this song It has gone viral on social networks like Twitter or TikTok what we find is a musical composition typical of these artists. The voices, the lyrics and the base of the song work perfectly. In fact, it’s so plausible that thousands of people have taken this song for real when, in fact, it’s made by AI.
Yes, now the AI is also capable of composing songs. It is not that this is something new, but the surprising thing has been the ability of the AI to generate the voices of Drake and The Weeknd to such a level of perfection that it is impossible to distinguish that, in this viral song, neither of these two artists has really participated.
But how did this viral song come about? The TikTok user known as “Ghostwriter977” is responsible for this viral song which many people consider the collaboration of the year. The TikTok user posted his creation on TikTok and it has garnered an enormous amount of attention ever since.
Drake and The Weeknd have a viral song in which they have not participated since it has been made by an AI
The process of creating this viral song made by AI does not respond to any information offered by its creator, although taking into account the operation of Artificial Intelligence, it is likely that the person behind the song had to compose the lyrics or, for example, use ChatGPT for it.
After this, what you will have done to get this song off the ground is to sing the lyrics and record your voice while you do it. Logically, he has had to record both the voice for Drake’s verses and those of The Weeknd. Having done this, what you would have to do is pass the recordings through a Artificial intelligence that he would have exchanged them for the voices of the artists.
The experiment may seem very innocent, even though it is not. Universal Music Group did not like it at all. In fact, she has asked for the song to be removed. This is not all, since he also wants streaming platforms not to accept this type of song among their different content.
