Young Money's Drake is not slowing down the promotion behind his new Nothing Was The Same solo album and has reportedly picked what record fans can expect to start hearing across radio stations nationwide.
According to reports, Drizzy is banking on the Boi-1da-produced track "The Language" to be his next single.
Now that Nothing Was The Same is a huge success and the initial singles have performed well, Drake is ready for the next round of battle. To keep the momentum going, Drizzy and the team have picked the fan favorite 'The Language' as the next single from the LP which is set to impact radio on Tuesday, November 5th. The track was produced by Boi-1da, Vinylz and Allen Ritter, and features a stunt outro from Birdman. Also lookout for the 'Worst Behavior' music video which has already been shot. (HHNM)
This week, Drizzy spoke on his unreleased "Trophies" track needing some fine-tuning and nearly making it onto the retail release.
"I wouldn't even call it a leftover," Drake said, referring to his new "Trophies" track. "It was definitely on the album. I know Hit-Boy is going to watch this interview and be like, 'Pssshh.' It was definitely on the album. I'm not a, 'Just-Throw-It-Together' type of guy and I had two different hooks on there. I didn't like either of them and I just started sending it around and as great of a job other people did, it didn't sound right if I wasn't on the hook. I always want to do my own hooks for the sake of my performances. I don't like being off a hook because then I can't do 'Language,' 'Worst Behavior' -- I can't really give you a moment if someone else is doing the hook. ... I'm going to drop 'Trophies' though. I'm going to finish it up and drop 'Trophies.' I got a lot of records that aren't out yet." (Revolt TV)
During his "Would You Like A Tour?" Brooklyn stop a few days ago, Drake gave fans an exclusive first-listen to his "Trophies" record.
The crowd went wild when Harlem's own A$AP Ferg joined the Canadian rapper to perform "Work." "I just figured, to bring this shit home, I could bring out my family," said Drizzy while introducing Ferg. He continued with "Shabba Ranks" as the rest of A$AP Mob swarmed the stage. A$AP Rocky stuck around to perform his hit "F*ckin' Problems" with some help from October's Very Own. But that wasn't all. Busta Rhymes got the crowd hype with an energetic performance of "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See." During Future the Prince's set, he previewed a new Drake song called "Trophies," produced by Hit-Boy. The instrumental can also be heard in the trailer for Nothing Was the Same. (Rap-Up)
Recently, the Toronto native revealed he had about five unreleased tracks which could pop up in the near future.
"I'm not a guy that does 40 songs for a project and picks 13 of them. If I'm gonna go as far as to track over a beat, I usually have the utmost faith in it that it'll end up somewhere," he explained. "I don't really dispose of too many songs. I have stuff that didn't make this album definitely, but I don't have 20 or 30 of them -- I have four or five records that just didn't make it because I was trying to keep it concise and whatever I end up doing with those, I'll do with them."
