Diehard Drake fans hoping to get their hands on his new Nothing Was The Same next month are going to have to learn patience as reports claim the LP has suffered a slight delay.
Although Drizzy has yet to confirm the change, reports claim his third solo effort will arrive a week later than initially scheduled.
Additional details were only just revealed about Drake's upcoming third set Nothing Was The Same, but there's one crucial piece of new information that surfaced today: The album, originally scheduled for a September 17 release, has now been pushed back to September 24, according to Hits Daily Double (via Complex). The LP includes collaborations with Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and Hudson Mohawke, as well as singles "Hold On We're Going Home" and "Started From The Bottom." But don't fret -- producer Noah "40? Shehib says that the record is well on its way. "Hold on we're almost done" (Idolator)
Last week, confirmation on Jay Z and Lil Wayne coming through for the highly anticipated LP sprouted.
"This album is about growth," says the Toronto MC. "When I play it for people, they ask, 'Who's that rapping?' I'm like, 'That's me.'" The LP also features all-star guests from Jay Z to Lil Wayne, plus superhot producers like Scottish DJ Hudson Mohawke. One highlight? The emotional "Connect." "That one hits you in the heart," says Drake. "It's painful and beautiful at the same time." (Rolling Stone)
A few days ago, Drizzy cleared up rumors about a track from his LP and promised guest collaborator Aiko was wrong in relation to a song title.
"40. Gonzales. Jhene Aiko. Might be my new favorite song. @JheneAiko @chillygonzales @OVO40," Drake tweeted August 9.
"The song is not called Momentous Occasions. That's a terrible title." (Drake's Twitter)
Earlier this month, Drizzy noted the slew of high-profile releases this year made him take a serious approach to his upcoming LP.
"I remember coming into this year thinking, "How am I going to cut through all these people and shine?" I've never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I'm going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives. And, I guess, those were my initial thoughts, and not to say that I haven't enjoyed some of the stuff that has come out this year, but it didn't pan out the way I thought it was going to. I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, "Um, I think that Drake might actually..." On September 17th I want people to be like, "Oh, we were right."" (XXL Magazine)
