Earlier this month Rolling Stone included Drake‘s upcoming album Nothing Was The Same in their fall music preview, and revealed that Jay-Z & Lil Wayne would be on the album as features. Today some more info from and tidbits from the album came to light. 40 and Drizzy spoke about the intro to the album titled “Tuscan Leather,” saying that it has a Whitney Houston sample and that 40 flipped it into three different beats for the three verses.
Of bombastic album opener “Tuscan Leather,” 40 says, “It’s a three-staged record – one sample flipped three different ways, with a verse over each beat.”
The other exciting part of the preview is that Drake reveals that the album features a sequel to his popular song “Paris Morton Music.” The first one was absolute flames so we really can’t even begin to imagine what kind of fire Drake is bringing for the sequel.
Drake, meanwhile, cites the standout track “Paris Morton Music II” as the clearest proof that he’s stepped up his game. “That track excites me from a rap standpoint, just getting off bars and different flows,” he says. “I played it for J. Cole, on some rap buddy-buddy shit, and he was like, ‘Damn!’”
With the album now dropping officially on September 24 and the official standard and deluxe covers now out, expect a lot more info in the coming weeks about the album.
