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.

A sequel was featured on Drake's third studio album, Nothing Was the Same as the outro "Pound Cake / Paris Morton Music 2" featuring Jay-Z.

"Paris Morton Music" was included as a track on Drake's 2019 compilation album, Care Package.
