ILoveMakonnen was a surprise addition to Drake's OVO Sound label after the ATL-via-Cali rap singer launched with his breakout "Tuesday."

But, now, it seems, the union is no longer on solid ground.

According to Billboard, Makonnen has formally split ties with Drake's company, though no specific reason was given.

The pair never appeared in sync after the "Tuesday" video shoot, with Drake and team collaborating constantly and ILoveMakonnen on his own.

Makonnen issued a statement to media, expressing gratitude toward the OVO team and warning "haters" not to look deeper into the decision.

"I cannot thank OVO, 40, Oliver, Future & Mr. Morgan, enough for all that they have done for my career. No words can express how much I appreciate Drake for being a part of the success of Tuesday. I'm sure the haters will have something negative to say, but all in all my choice to be solely on Warner Bros Records was the right thing for me and for my best interest. Sorry there's no beef to report, DRINK MORE WATER."
