In anticipation of the September release of his third studio album Nothing Was The Same, Drake released four tracks over the weekend, via his October’s Very Own SoundCloud page. The four songs which are all available for free download included “Jodeci Freestyle” featuring J. Cole, “Versace” by new OVO artist Migos featuring Drake, “Over Here” by OVO artist Party Next Door featuring Drake, and “The Motion” featuring Sampha.
Out of the four songs, “The Motion” is definitely the stand-out track here. Produced by Noah “40″ Shebib and Sampha, the track has a somewhat esoteric vibe, with hard-hitting drums that we would expect from a Drake track. We hear more singing from Drake here, with additional background vocals and a bridge from Sampha.
Sampha is pretty new to the North American music scene, having collaborated mainly with European acts like SBTRKT, Jessie Ware, Roses Gabor, and Little Dragon. Take a listen to “The Motion” below.
