Drake Reveals Nothing Was The Same September Release With Four New Songs

Drizzy announces September 17 release date for his third LP and drops four new songs on Saturday to mark the occasion.

Drake sure knows how to make an announcement. Not only did the OVO rap star tack a September 17 release date onto his Nothing Was the Same LP, he launched a new website and gave four new songs to his fans.

On Saturday morning (June 22), Drizzy sent out a tweet with the release date and on his new ovosound.com website offered “Jodeci Freestyle,” with J. Cole, “Versace,” with Atlanta trio Migos, “The Motion” and “Over Here” with his new R&B artist PartyNextDoor.


On “Jodeci Freestyle” Drake trades bars with Cole, toasting to their rap supremacy. “26 on my third GQ cover/ Ya new sh– sound like you do covers– of all of my old sh–,” he teases before his Roc Nation cohort chastises the magazines which haven’t offered him a cover just yet.

Cole also references MTV News’ annual “Hottest MCs in the Game” list. “F— your list you lame n—as and doubters/ I’m undoubtedly the hottest and that’s just me being modest,” he spits over the subdued beat.

Drizzy switches up his bounce on Migos’ “Versace,” rapping with a double-time flow instead. His confidence is unwavering however. “I think I’m selling a million first week, man I guess I’m an optimist,” he predicts of Nothing Was the Same.

On PartyNextDoor’s “Over Here” the Toronto spitter adds an accenting verse in the middle of the R&B tune and on “The Motion” he provides his own sing-songy flow.

There’s no telling which, if any of these songs will actually end up on Nothing Was the Same. It’s a good chance none of them will make the final cut, but if it’s any indication of what’s to come, rap fans will surely be circling September 17 on their calendars.

Mentally been many places, but I'm Brooklyn's own. Hip-hop gives me life!
