“Take Care is a great album, but I listen to it and realize where I can do better, and I think I’ve done better on [Nothing Was the Same],” he told MTV. “If you want to listen to Drake music for the rest of your life, I welcome it… but just don’t ever be surprised when I’m singing or using melody; I’m doing that on this album.”
Drake continues, “This album is not some straight rap album. I’ll never do a straight rap album; that’s now how I came into this. I make songs for people. I have aspirations to be Marvin Gaye in the back of my head. 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.”
