Looks like Drake isn't satisfied with just being nominated for an award on the biggest night in music. Universal Music just confirmed that the Young Money emcee will release the first single off his highly anticipated third album on the evening of the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. The show will air on CBS on February 10.
No word yet on the name of the song, but sources say it might be "Started From the Bottom" or "The Start From the Bottom." Either iteration is an apt description of the rapper's career; Drake burst onto the scene as an unknown with his 2009 mixtape So Far Gone and quickly rose to the top of the game, where his music has dominated the charts.
At this year's show, Drizzy's Grammy Award nominations are for Best Rap Performance for "HYFR (Hell Ya F---ing Right)," Best Rap Song for "The Motto" and Best Album for his sophomore project, Take Care. The album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart, and has sold 1.9 million copies to date, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
His forthcoming project is still untitled, but is expected to be released this year. Tune in to the Grammy Awards to see how the Toronto rapper fares against veterans like Nas and Jay-Z, and newcomers Wale and 2 Chainz.
