Drake Drops 4 New Tracks & Reveals 'Nothing Was The Same' Release Date

With J. Cole and Yeezus going head to head with amazing results; Jay-Z's revolutionary announcement of his album Magna Carta Holy Grail; Wale's The Gifted on deck; and Drake's Nothing Was The Same officially slated for a September 17th release, there's no doubt that this summer will be the best one Hip Hop music's seen in a while.

In a move similar to the concurrent release of "Girls Love Beyoncé" and "No New Friends," Drake released four new tracks: the J. Cole featured "Jodeci Freestyle," Party Next Door's "Over Here," Migos' "Versace," and the Sampha featured "The Motion."  Stream + download them all below.

[Music Video] Drake - "5AM In Toronto"

Drake's latest vent "5AM In Toronto" was so nice lyrically, even his biggest and most hilarious naysayer Big Ghost couldn't find much to hate on. Now the OVO general releases a visual to accompany the unofficial single, which shows him out with his team at what looks like... 5AM in Toronto.

Drake - "5AM In Toronto"

Drake can probably coast off of his hit "Started From The Bottom" until his album Nothing Was The Same drops, but it looks like he's got something to prove as he rips into Boi-1da & Vinylz's production "5AM In Toronto."

Stream/download the venting session below as Drake takes a few subliminals addressing the MTV Hottest MCs list, Rihanna, The Weeknd and a few others.

[Music Video] Drake - "Started From The Bottom"

This video dropped before Drake took home the Grammy for Rap Album of the Year, but the honor makes "Started From The Bottom" even more fitting. "HYFR" was a pretty hilarious video, but this may take the cake as Drake gets upgraded from a stockboy to night manager to superstar while bringing his friends up with him.

The Weeknd - Our Love (Prod. T-Minus)

I read about The Weeknd's past music being very bubblegum R&B when his former partner and producer Jeremy Rose spoke with VICE about being screwed by the singer. Check out this previously unreleased track from 2009 when Abel was part of Toronto group The Noise to find out how much The Weeknd's sound has really changed.

Melanie Fiona - Gone (La Dada Di) ft. Snoop Dogg

Another offering from Melanie Fiona's The MF Life surfaces as the Canadian beauty sings a dark tale of losing her boyfriend on "Gone," which features the OG Snoop Dogg. This iTunes bonus cut will appear on the March 20th release of her sophomore LP, and I think it's definitely a good choice it's not a final cut for the album.

Melanie Fiona - The MF Life [Official Artwork & Tracklisting]

From the looks of the tracklist for Melanie Fiona's new album The MF Life, the LP is going to be verrrrry nice.  With features from J. Cole, Nas, John Legend, B.o.B, and T-Pain, I'm definitely going to be buying it when it comes out

01. This Time ft. J. Cole
02. 4 AM
03. Break Down These Walls
04. I Been That Girl
05. Wrong Side of a Love Song
06. Running ft. Nas
07. Change The Record ft. B.o.B
08. Gone and Never Coming Back
10. Watch me Work
11. Can't Say
12. L.O.V.E. ft. John Legend
Bonus: 6 AM ft. T-Pain

Out of all of the album's noteworthy features, it's hard for me to decide which track I want to hear the most.  The bonus track "6 AM" featuring T-Pain seems the most interesting just because it's some type of mashup between Melanie's hit "4 AM" and T-Pain's "5 O'Clock." Which tracks are you excited about? Hit up the comments and let me know!
