MTV still has footage of their interview with Drake after OVO Fest, and in this new clip, Drake says that he thinks “Nothing Was The Same” is better than “Take Care” and that we should never expect a straight up rap album from him. He came into the game making songs so don’t ever be surprised when he decides to sing and use melodies. He also has aspirations of being Marvin Gaye.
September 24th just wait on it though!
“The music that I’m making is more concise, more clear, and I’ve been able to get my thoughts a lot better on this album. Take Care is a great album, but I listened to it and realized where I could do better and I think I’ve done better on this album. My biggest thing is…if you wanna listen to Drake music for the rest of your life — I welcome it, I want you to listen to it, I want you to be a part of it — just don’t ever be surprised when I’m singing or using melody. I’m doing that on this album. This album is not some straight rap album, I’ll never do a straight rap album. That’s not how I came into this and that’s never what I’ll do. I make songs for the people. I have aspirations to be Marvin Gaye in the back of my head. So I just want to sing the world’s triumphs and problems on one record and hopefully Nothing was the Same [can be] the soundtrack to their life.”
More good news for Drake today. His Mike Zombie produced single “Started From The Bottom” has officially surpassed the one million mark in sales, selling 96 000 copies this week making it reach platinum status. Drake’s sophomore album “Take Care,” has just hit over two million album sales making the LP double platinum. It sold 4700 units this week to make it hit a new landmark. Congrats to Drizzy and his OVO team.
