Que the Drake ‘gay’ jokes. Anyways, in an interview with MTV, Drake revealed to them that he’ll never make a full on rap album, and honestly I can’t say I would really want one. Drake’s really got the singing part down, despite him not being the most vocally talented artist. He also goes onto say he wants to be like Marvin Gaye & that Nothing Was The Same is better than Take Care.
“My biggest thing is…if you wanna listen to Drake music for the rest of your life — I welcome it, I want you to listen to it, I want you to be a part of it — just don’t ever be surprised when I’m singing or using melody,” he said. “I’m doing that on this album. This album is not some straight rap album, I’ll never do a straight rap album. That’s not how I came into this and that’s never what I’ll do. I make songs for the people.
“I have aspirations to be Marvin Gaye in the back of my head,” he added. “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.”
