Drake Explains His Balance Between Rapping, Singing

'It allows people a break from just constant rapping, rapping, rapping,' he says of crooning on his tracks.

While Drake works on his debut LP, [article id="1613246"]Thank Me Later,[/article] the Toronto MC said there is no method to any of his madness. If he gets inspired to spit rhymes on a track, he'll get to it. If he wants to croon to a beat, that's what it will be.

"The balance of singing and rapping has been blurred ever since I did [article id="1609507"]So Far Gone,[/article]" he said of his breakthrough mixtape. "I mean, I don't really have a formula for that. I don't say, like, 'OK, I can only sing this hook or I want to rap this.' I just really hear a beat, and it's like, 'If I can write to it on a hip-hop level, if I can pen some raps to it, then that will work.' And then maybe after I do that, I'll get in the booth and sing a little part of the verse.

"I like to do that," he continued. "I like to incorporate singing into my verses. And then I feel like it allows people a break from just constant rapping, rapping, rapping, you know? I think it's great to incorporate melodies into the songs that I write. And yeah, my goal is just really to make a song that after I listen to it, I'll just be like, 'Man, people are going to know the words to that.' That's the best thing. I think I'm doing it right, 'cause when I go to the shows, people know the words to the songs, and that's good."

Drake has the [article id="1615204"]video for "Best I Ever Had"[/article] out right now and says he'll probably be appearing in front of the cameras for more clips soon.

"There's talk to do a 'Successful' video," Drake said. "Also, you know, I'm shooting the video to 'Digital Girl' with Jamie Foxx and Kanye West and The-Dream. And then there is another song that we have that we might shoot a video for, for the album. So as far as videos go, there is some more potential chances to see [me]."
