Drizzy makes an open shout-out to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on his new “Tuscan Leather” track.
On the opening track of Nothing Was The Same called “Tuscan Leather,” Drake namedrops Ellen DeGeneres on the lines: “Yeah, Tom Ford Tuscan Leather smelling like a brick Degenerates, but even Ellen love our shit Rich enough that I don’t have to tell ‘em that I’m rich Self explanatory, you just here to spread the story, wassup” “Tuscan Leather” is the Noah “40” Shebib-produced song that samples Whitney Houston in a variety of ways.

Despite Take Care‘s ample hit singles, Drizzy recently said he was more focused this time around.
After dropping Take Care, Drake relocated to Los Angeles, where he recorded a bulk of the new album and focused on stepping up his game. “The music that I’m making is more concise, more clear, and I’ve been able to get my thoughts a lot better on this album,” he told MTV News. “Take Care is a great album, but I listened to it and realized where I could do better and I think I’ve done better on this album.” (MTV)
