[LAU] drum notation 3-beat vs 4-beat

What I understand from music lessons is that the drummer in a band can
play 3-beat (3 beats per quarter note rhythm) or 4-beat. 3-beat is
common in (swing)blues (?) and 4-beat is more common in popular music
(e.g. rock, pop).
I'm wondering what this means for the drum notation. How do you write it
down when the drummer uses 3-beat in for example 'Can't Help Falling in
Love' from Elvis Presley?
Thanks in advance,
