Leading up to the release of his third album Nothing Was the Same, Drake did a bit of blogging to build buzz by sharing four tracks including the Migos-featuring “Versace” on October’s Very Own. And it seems Drake has similar plans to drop previously unreleased Nothing Was The Same songs telling Vibe, “Not an EP, but maybe a blog thing like how I did ‘Versace,’ ‘The Motion,’ all those in one night. I’ll probably do ‘Trophies’ and three or four other records.” Back in October, Drake previewed the the Hit-Boy produced “Trophies” during a performance in New York on his “Would You Like a Tour?” run prompting many to wonder if the track would eventually get an official release.
As for the rest of the new cuts, Drake says to expect the remix to”Wu-Tang Forever,” which will feature bars from members of The Wu-Tang Clan themselves. We might also hear tracks featuring production from SBTRKT, vocals from Aaliyah, and maybe even R&B legend Sade. SBTRKT had previously submitted tracks for the project, Sade reportedly jumped in the studio to record a feature, and Drake’s Aaliyah tribute album has long been in the works.
Watch his performance of “Trophies” below and keep your eye on October’s Very Own for new music.
