Young Money superstar Drake has chosen to keep the features down to a minimum on his upcoming “Nothing Was The Same” album and decided to give the fans only a couple collaborations.
According to the new tracklisting that was released, Drake’s LP mainly consist of just himself as opposed to his last two solo albums.
New information on Drizzy’s LP and an insider’s look on his “Wu-Tang Forever” track have surfaced online throughout the week.
“On the ’90s-rap-inspired song “Wu Tang Forever,” he weaves boasts of sexual virility around a plinking piano and rapid-fire drums. The outro to the album, tentatively titled “Pound Cake,” features two incisive verses from Jay Z, even as Drake asserts himself above any and all competition by the song’s climactic ending. “Studied the game to the letter and I did it better, like I’m supposed to feel guilty?” he rhymes.” (Billboard)
According to reports, The LP will showcase a harder rap version of the Young Money rapper.
” “Nothing Was the Same” is the culmination of four years of the Drake musical experiment, in which hip-hop and R&B are held in careful equilibrium within the same artist. The new album largely does away with the purely slow songs that can be found on stretches of previous Drake albums, mostly confining R&B elements to hooks, bridges and atmospherics. As a result, the collection hits harder and more frequently than his earlier material, with Drake putting his rapping prowess at the forefront.” (Billboard)
Drake recently gave MTV a little more insight on the cover art of the LP.
“When you go to the store and see it, you’ll see the full painting,” Drake explained in an interview. “When it’s positioned on the shelf, whatever store you go to, if they do it as I’ve asked [laughs], you’ll see the fact that it’s a child version of myself staring at myself now. Sometimes when I try and think back on this journey, it’s so hard to pinpoint all of these moments and it gets foggy. Even on past albums when I’ve been trying to tell this story, I’ve got there, but maybe not got there all the way. And what that album art is to me is, like, this is my most clean, concise thoughts from now, and my best recollection of then. That’s really what that cover’s about.” (MTV)
