Drake Talks About Being Successful

    With the Success of Drake's "Successful," the new Young Money artist sat down with MTV to talk about the song.
[watch here] "I remember hearing the record and the drums coming together, and they were just so rocking," Drake said. 
[watch here] "Sometimes, as an artist, you find a musical piece that you love so much, you want to do it justice. It's a very overwhelming feeling at times. I actually turned to Trey Songz, and I was like, 'Yo, I got this joint, and I know how it makes me feel. I just don't know how to say it the right way.' "

    Trey Songz, who singz the chorus on the song, also talked about their collaboration. "Drake told me back in January he was gonna do another mixtape," Songz said. 
[watch here] "At first, he was calling me about interludes and trying to segue his singing into his rapping. That didn't work out, because we couldn't come to terms about what records I was going to be on. Then he sent me this track one night. I was in the studio when he sent it. He said, 'Let me know what you think about it.' It was simplistic, but it knocks. It's eerie, it's dark. The first thing I laid down was the gothic, reverb-driven harmony: 'arrrgh, arrrgh, arrrgh.' I couldn't think of what I wanted to hear on it, so I did a whole bunch of harmonies."
