"Would You Like Some Music?" Drake asked early this morning, directing fans to four new songs. Two of the batch, "Jodeci Freestyle" and "The Motion" with Sampha, may or may not appear on Drake's album Nothing Was the Same, which finally has a tail-end-of-summer release date, September 17th. "Over Here" is a collaboration with new OVO artist PARTYNEXTDOOR, likely taken from his upcoming release, dropping July 1st. I think I'm selling a million first week/ Man I guess I'm an optimist/ Born in Toronto but sometimes I feel like Atlanta adopted us Drake raps on a new remix of "Versace," the Zaytoven-produced track from Migos' new Young Rich Niggas mixtape. Glad Drake likes Migos!
