Paris Morton Music
A song by Drake called "Paris Morton Music" features similar music which was also credited to J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. It differs from "Aston Martin Music" as it does not feature Rick Ross or Chrisette Michele. However, Drake's rather short verse from the original has been extended to a hook (sung by Drake himself), which is played once at the start and once at the end of the song, with Drake's rapping in the middle. Drake's rap verse from Paris Morton Music is featured on Aston Martin Music's single and the music video.
