Drake has been dropping tracks right and left, but firm details about his upcoming sophomore LP Nothing Was The Same have remained scarce, even as he’s covered a litany of territory from the sensitive “Hold On We’re Going Home” to the swagging “Started From The Bottom.”

But now! A fall albums preview in Rolling Stone reveals a few confirmed collaborators: Namely, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. (I wouldn’t expect anything less.) Also tipped for inclusion on the LP is Scottish DJ Hudson Mohawke, the hotly tipped dance producer who helped helm GOOD Music‘s Cruel Summer.

Drake cites one highlight as the song “Connect,” which is described as emotional: “That one hits you in the heart,” says Drake. “It’s painful and beautiful at the same time.”

The LP drops September 17.
