Drake Talks Nothing Was The Same Album: “I’m Emotional”
He’s riding high on the early success of his just-released record Nothing Was The Same, and Drake feels confident it’s his best opus yet.
The “Pop That” rapper describes the new project as “an album that you have to listen to front to back and then go over and listen to it again.”
As for the range of material he covers on the various tracks, Drake notes, "I'm just being me, and part of being me is being in touch with emotion. That's all I write about. If I didn't write about my emotions, I don't know what else I would write about. I'd make songs about generic things that nobody could relate to and I probably wouldn't be in this position that I'm in right now.”
"I'm emotional, yeah, I guess. Let that be the worst thing in my life, please, not something like drug charges and God knows what else. I don't get myself in trouble, so if the negative feedback that I do get is the worst thing that's going to happen to me, then so be it.”
Drake also mentions that his mom inspired some of his lyrics- “My mother is an incredible woman. I talk about her a lot on this album. She's brought me to this point single-handedly. She's the most important person in my life."
