After releasing his superpop single “Find Your Love” on the internets last night, Drake held a conference call today to talk about it….(thanks to Big D and DJ Juanyto on the assist)
Audio: Drake’s Conference Call
Legend: Drizzy spoke on a conference call earlier to speak on an array of topics & to break down different questions from callers as well as elaborate on things like the single which he described as “vulnerable from a man stand point” and also proud of the song including the visual that director Anthony Mandler came up with for it. He also broke down the email that Jay-Z sent him when he first heard “Over” and how he told Drake “..it’s like the girl you see at the club..shes not the cutest but then you speak to her shes one of the sexiest women of all time.”
When the topic came up about guests on Thank Me Later, Drizzy said he kept it family orientated CTE/Roc-A-Fella/Cash Money with artists like Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye West and also said Kings Of Leon is not on “Fireworks” but he managed to get a special guest on the track to make up for it. He also hopes for a bonus track on the album which he wants J. Cole and Lupe Fiasco featured, for the hip-hop fans, to balance out the CD with tracks like those and “Find Your Love”
He explained that he wanted to give people the best possible project he could at this point in time since he took 22 years to make the So Far Gone mixtape and only a short amount of time to make the album. He also breaks down the R&B records vs. the Rap ones as well as inspirations in his music throughout the last year.
