Canadian Rapper and Singer Drake recently came out with a new album titled “Nothing Was The Same (Young Money/Cash Money /Republic)” which came out in stores and on iTunes September 24th. The album was one of the biggest winners on the Billboard Charts this week selling 658,000 copies according to Neilson Soundscan. Drake has also sold five million albums worldwide and one of his other alb titled “Take Care “won a Grammy for best rap album. Also, “Thank Me Later” and “Take Care” debuted at number one, and “Nothing Was The Same” is also expected to do well too, and it’s easy to see why.
In a recent interview that Drake did with Ryan Seacreast, he admitted that he worked on this album for a year and a half. As the interview went on, Drake explained that the title of the album represents his personal growth and the realization of how he has changed as in individual. Drake explained that the album maps out his journey to be successful and the hard work to get where he is today. These explanations are apparent in the song “Worst Behavior”. Furthermore, the song from the album called “Started from the Bottom” reflects how he has worked really hard from coming off a children’s TV show to being where he is now. “Hold On Were Going Home” is about the potential of what could happen and that everyone isn’t perfect.
This album is definitely unique, personal album with great lyrics and rhythms. I don’t listen to Drake’s music that much, but “Nothing was the Same” was overall an awesome album due to the immense power behind the meaning behind it. This album maintains Drake’s standing as one of the most famous rapper/singers in the world.
