We first caught a snippet of Drake's "Trophies" in a Nothing Was The Same video trailer, and then a preview of the whole first verse during a tour stop in Brooklyn. But now, with the final count-down to the end of the year on, he gives us what we've really been waiting for: the massively-anticipated song, produced by Hit-Boy with the help of HAGLER and Noah “40″ Shebib, in it's full and brassy glory. And -- as you might have guessed given the songs title -- he's really feeling himself on this one: This shit is not a love song, this is a fuck a stripper on a mink rug song. This is a fuck them boys forever, hold a grudge song. Pop some fuckin’ champagne in the tub song. Nigga, "just because" song. How's that for a victory lap?
