2/4/2013




DRAKE
released a new track over the weekend.  It's called "Started from the Bottom".   It's the first single off his upcoming album.  It's supposed to come out this year, but there's no title or release date yet.  (You can check it out here or on SoundCloud.com.) 

 

 

Drake says "Started from the Bottom" is about how he had to work his way to the top.  He says,  "I feel sometimes that people don't have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn't consistent with actual events.  My family and my second family, consisting of the best friends anybody could ever have, all struggled and worked extremely hard to make all this happen.  I didn't buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve.  I am proud of every part of my past and I'm excited for this song to find a place in your life as well."  (Drake's career began when he was 15, when he scored a role on the Canadian show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".)
