1 of the 4 tracks Drake released early this morning: "The Motion" featuring Sampha
While we were sleeping, Drake decided to shake things up in the world of new music by releasing FOUR new tracks AND announcing the release date to his hotly anticipated album, Nothing Was The Same. September 17th, he tweets. The original plan was summer but we'll have to wait a little longer now for the album. No big deal if Drake drops four tracks out of nowhere every now and then.
Jodeci was up late and put them up in the Songs page, ironically starting with the "Jodeci Freestyle" featuring J. Cole, but ICYMI here's the rundown below. "The Motion" is my favorite of the four and it looks like that'll be the one album track of this batch. Very solid start, if that's indeed the case.
Talk about the most high-profile Nike commercial that could've never been had the Spurs won Game 6 or 7. But LeBron James and the Miami Heat had other plans, and upon winning the deciding Game 7 tonight, Nike released their new "Leave A Message" ad campaign featuring the likes of Drake, Dr. Dre, Bill Russell, Spike Lee, and Warren Buffet leaving a voicemail congratulating LeBron on winning his second 'ship. Toss-up between Drake & Bill Russell for the most fun voicemail.
Important note: I was also in talks with Nike to leave a voicemail, but when they realized mine said, "Congrats LeBron! But next year, Derrick is back," talks mysteriously stopped.
In all seriousness... it's 2013, shouldn't these all be texts? OK, in all seriousness for real, congrats to LeBron and the Heat. No matter your opinion on James, there's no denying how phenomenal he played tonight, all series, and all season. Loved the matchup with the Spurs as it played out to be one of the best NBA Finals series in league history. And as a fan of the NBA, you can't ask for much more. What a season!
Drake took to his instagram today to reveal the release date for the debut project from his OVO artist, PARTYNEXTDOOR. July 1st. I'm intrigued to hear more after the first couple of releases; here's "Wus Good/Curios" brought back below.
