The Young Money Cash Money rapper hasn’t really “wowed” with previous album titles and his junior album doesn’t quite change that. Titled Nothing Was the Same, the album has spawned the first single Started From the Bottom. Honestly, I think this should have followed his debut Thank Me Later or replaced it. Seems like the album will influence a more hip-hop Drake instead of his 2011 release, Take Care, and it’s heavy R&B-esque vibe.
We all know why we love and hate Drake, but honestly the softer side of him keeps listeners wanting more. Reminiscent of his heavily popular sophomore mixtape So Far Gone, Take Care, which granted him the Best Rap Album award at tonight’s Grammys, wowed fans with a return to his emotional side. However, with an Over-sounding single, I don’t think Nothing Was the Same is the right move, but we will be patiently waiting to see.
No release date quite yet, but stay tuned for more info.
