Drake Talks Third Album
Drizzy was keen to stress that he hoped the album would showcase music’s ability to bring people together and that he believed his sound could not be copied.
Drake has long been known for his versatility, his ability to both rap and sing with ease. In an interview with MTV News, Drake referenced his skill in both areas, explaining that he did not wish to be forced into a box and limited to only one area of performing. The Canadian-born rapper said that he felt rappers are always categorized, and that he wanted to avoid just that.
“The music that I make is bigger than the box that people try to put us all in as rappers,” Drake said. “And people always try and draw me back to that like ‘Nah just rap.’ Nah, I’m good. I like what I do. No one can do what I do period. That’s how I feel. Nobody can really do what I do, what we do. Including 40 and all the producers that I work with.”
Drake went on to talk about his third album, saying that he hoped the music on it would bring people together.
“[There's] nothing necessarily for me to step up and say I want to fight for, but there is a way for me to give moments to the world, and to bear my emotions and hope that I’m remembered as that guy who was able to bring people together. I want to be that guy. I want to bring people together.”
