Started from the bottom, now he's here — at the Grammys, that is.
Drake capped off a big night at the 55th Grammys by announcing the name of his upcoming third album. Fresh off his win in the Best Rap Album category — in which his acclaimed 2011 sophomore set, Take Care, beat out discs by Nas, Rick Ross and 2 Chainz — the Toronto rapper revealed in a red-carpet interview with E Entertainment's Ryan Seacrest that the name of his third album will be Nothing Was the Same.
The announcement — on top of last week's leak of new single "Started From the Bottom" — has Drake fans chomping at the bit, and who could blame them? On top of the Grammy victory, Drake's last album, Take Care, sold more than a million copies in the U.S thanks to highlights including "Marvin's Room" and "The Motto."
Drake told Seacrest the album was fueled by self-discovery. "I think music, it’s a process that we all go through," he said. "It's an evolution. You're constantly figuring out what works for you. I think [on] Take Care I really found myself and found my stride."
With his new hardware and a new album on the way, Drake is, unsurprisingly, thrilled. "I'm just excited about life in general," he told Seacrest.
