Young Money rapper Drake has released his new Kanye West-produced single, "Find Your Love," from the forthcoming Thank Me Later album.
The single was released on the Internet early Thursday (April 29) morning.
Drake tweeted early morning on April 29, "I better find your loving ...I better find your heart". His second single from the most anticipated album, Thank Me Later, was unleashed on the Internet. In seconds music lovers flocked the Internet to listen to the song ."Find Your Love," is produced by hip-hop genius Kanye West. Now, Drake released its second song, "Find Your Love." Earlier, in March a track titled "Fall For Your Type'" was leaked over the Internet. There are rumours that this song will be featured in the much anticipated album. (Meri News)
Some critics have compared the sound to Kanye West's 2008 album, 808's & Heartbreak.
The mechanical beats of the track, including thumping drums and "hey hey hey" refrains will almost immediately call to mind West's Grammy-snubbed masterpiece 808's and Heartbreak, but don't be so quick to write "Find Your Love" off as a copycat or reject, as Drake has left no stone unturned to make you forget all these similarities. Kanye West, a famous music director with whom Drake has been working from the very beginning of his musical career, had made this song exceptionally well. Actually as far as I think, he had made this song in such a way that the song will surely remind you all those cherish moments that you might have spent with your loved ones! (Buzz Tab)
Drake filmed a music video for the song earlier this month in Jamaica.
The video and its production is being kept tightly under wraps from foreign and local media. However, a source close to the production revealed that the video was a three-day shoot being filmed throughout Kingston, starting yesterday and ending on Wednesday. When THE STAR visited the set yesterday, Drake and crew had taken over the beach and was filming on the hillside, alongside bikini-clad females, overlooking the sea. According to persons working on the shoot, a bonfire was to be set up on the beach in the night for further filming and later the crew was set to move to Cassava Piece for more scenes. The source said, "Mavado has a major role in the video. He and Drake are good friends and when Drake came here the last time he saw some scenes he wanted to have in his next video and thought that Mavado fit the role well." According to the source, on Drake's last visit here, he had also recorded some material and he and Mavado are expected to do work together in the future. (Jamaica Star)
He later talked about his experience filming the song overseas.
"We went to Kingston," Drake said. "We went to this 'hood. They call it the 'gully' side. It's bad out there, real bad. They had 'YoungMoney' sprayed on the gates, 'Drake and Wayne,' 'cause I came to shoot the video out there. I'm talking about you drive by people's homes, they had 'Drake,' 'Young Money,' 'Drake, Welcome Here,' 'Drake We Love You' -- crazy sh--, man. It was so crazy. This dude was like, 'Original Weezy tha God! You tha boss! Weezy tha God!' It's crazy. They love us, 'cause we show love out there." (MTV)
