Drake's dream is to be Marvin Gaye
Drake finally unveiled the tracklist for "Nothing Was the Same," which comes out Sep. 24, and he admitted to Rolling Stone magazine that he worked around the clock to make sure the story is complete and cohesive.
With appearances by Lil Wayne, Jay Z and 2 Chainz, the album is bound to be a hit. Still, the rapper has even bigger aspirations: to emulate the career of Marvin Gaye. In an interview with MTV News, he noted that "Nothing Was the Same" is not a traditional all-rap album, and actually includes some more melodic tunes.
"That's not how I came into this and that's never what I'll do," he explained to the news source, "I make songs for the people ... So I just want to sing the world's triumphs and problems on one record and hopefully 'Nothing was the Same' [can be] the soundtrack to their life."
