Drake Drops Four Tracks and a Trailer for New Album, Completes all G Train Trackwork, Drafts Transnational Nuclear Disarmament Treaty
Drake‘s upcoming album Nothing Was The Same doesn’t drop until September 17 but Mr. “No New Friends” has got a few new tracks in the meantime. The songs were released in conjunction with a trailer for Nothing Was the Same, in which we see Drizzy humbly at
home a Vermont ski lounge. The trailer shows Drake taking shots out of his Grammy and drunkenly stumbling around his compound musing about success, right before summoning the Von Trapp children to join him in a folk ballad.
But the likelihood the new songs will actually appear on the album is pretty slim. “Over Here” and “Versace” are just remixes of PARTYNEXTDOOR and Migos tracks, so they’re almost certainly out. Yet “Joedici Freestyle” and “The Motion” are bonafied Drizzy originals—certificates of authenticity, Beanie Baby tag protectors and all. The tracks get help from J. Cole and Sampha respectfully, so expect to see at least one on Nothing Was the Same.
I can only hope that this firestorm of songs arrives in the same vein of early Lil’ B—that Drake will eventually don a sunhat and bindi, releasing seven songs a day that all feature production efforts from his cat. For now, here’s all four of October’s Very Own’s latest:
