LeBron James and Drake go way back.

They've done concerts together—at least, Drake brought him on stage. They've exchanged words on the court—well, when LBJ was on the court. After Saturday night's release of Drizzy's More Life, it seems James and Drizzy are as tight as ever.

Remember this tweet from January?

LeBron James @KingJames

Sometimes I gotta just make sure that i didn't lose you. Did I?!?! Did I?!?! Did I Lose You

We all thought it was a sub-shot at Charles Barkley. The King posted it in the middle of the night, and later that day, ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin passed along James' scathing rebuke of the TNT analyst.

It turns out those were just lyrics from Drake's "Lose You," the 16th track on More Life.

You did lose us for a minute there, King. Well played.
