As 2013 inches closer to ending, Young Money's Drake is making sure fans go into the New Year with a bang courtesy of some fresh tunes slated to drop soon.
While Drizzy kept tight-lipped on the details, he did confirm unreleased tracks like "Trophies" and a "Wu-Tang Forever" remix could release before the ball drops next month.
OVO stans remember the four-song warmup Drake released on his blog back in June, which included his "Jodeci Freestyle" collaboration with J. Cole, and guest features on PARTYNEXTDOOR's "Over Here" and Migos' "Versace." Drake says his new material will be rolled out in a similar fashion. "Not an EP, but maybe a blog thing like how I did 'Versace,' 'The Motion,' all those in one night," Drake says of his unreleased songs. "I'll probably do 'Trophies' and three or four other records." Aside from the Hit-Boy produced track that Drake has previewed during his Would You Like A Tour? dates, he intends to include the remix to "Wu-Tang Forever," which was first reported on VIBE.com back in September. "['Wu-Tang Forever (Remix)'] will probably come out with all that stuff--I hope," Drake adds. "It's on 40. He has all the verses." (VIBE)
Recent reports suggested Drizzy would bank on his 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)
A few weeks ago, Drizzy spoke on his unreleased "Trophies" track needing some fine-tuning and nearly making it onto his Nothing Was The Same album.
"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)
The Toronto native recently 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."
