Friday, Jul 12, 2013 10:50AM
Young Money's Drake may be feeling the pressure to deliver hits for his upcoming Nothing Was the Same solo album and could be dropping new music as early as today (July 12).
According to reports, Drizzy Drake hinted at something possibly going down today Thursday night.
Just one week after Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail and only a few weeks after the night Drake dropped four songs--"The Motion," "Jodeci Freestyle," PARTYNEXTDOOR's "Over Here," and of course, Migos' "Versace (Remix)"--he may be releasing new music. Drake teased the photo above on Instagram tonight. It's captioned: "Tomorrow should be ours." Drake fans want new music. He is dropping Nothing Was The Same in September, and the OVO Fest in Toronto goes down in a few weeks. New music is possible but this whole thing could just be a reference to that sign in the background. The sign, which reads "Tomorrow Should Be Ours," is by UK artist Mark Titchner, in partnership with Oasis Skateboard Factory, and was installed during his AGO residency. Either way, doesn't "Tomorrow Should Be Ours" fit right in with the whole "Nothing Was The Same," "No New Friends," "Started From The Bottom" vibe? Can't wait to see how many Facebook statuses will come out of this one. Until then, Drake fans. (Complex)
Last month, Drake unleashed a few new tracks.
Drake pulled a Kanye and released new music in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Of the two songs revealed, "The Motion" is a mid-tempo, electro-tinged anti-love song featuring SBTRKT vocals Sampha. Meanwhile, on "Jodeci Freestyle", Drizzy teams with J. Cole for a forceful, braggadocios rant directed toward his competition. It's unclear if either track will appear on Drake's new album, Nothing Was The Same, but one thing we do know: As also announced this morning, the album will arrive on September 17th.

He also recently revealed his new LP will land on stores shelves in September.
"N O T H I N G W A S T H E S A M E S E P T E M B E R 1 7 T H," Drake tweeted June 22nd. (Drake's Twitter)
The Toronto native's righthand man Noah "40" Shebib revealed his heavy involvement on the follow-up to 2011's Take Care earlier this year.
"I don't know, I don't know. Every day it changes. That's tough. That's a hard thing to say. It depends. Because you know we work, and we have ideas and we have songs but as we create more songs, the shape of the album will change and the progression of it will change. As much as we might be sure that we're on a path and we're... We're sort of working sequentially right now. We feel like we have 1, 2, 3, you know we're going 4, 5, 6. That's how we're moving forward, in order of the actual playlist of the album. But as we make more music that fits in other places, it will change and adjust as far as how many songs, or how far we're going to go so it's yet to be discovered. We're still too early to make a call about whether or not we're half done or a quarter done or 75 percent done. I mean, it could be any of the above." (The Hollywood Reporter)
