Drake Shouts Out Celebrities in New Single “Draft Day”
Drake has been shooting off the singles lately, and his latest track to come out is “Draft Day,” which calls out multiple celebrities.
Drake dropped the song on Tuesday. The track samples Lauryn Hill’s “Doo-Wop” and then name-drops Jennifer Lawrence, Chance the Rapper, and college football star Johnny Manziel.
The track follows multiple singles off Drake’s No. 1 album, Nothing Was The Same. That release came out in September 2013, and so far, its biggest hit has been “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”
From there, the rapper/singer put out a string of singles in 2013 and 2014, including “All Me,” “Pound Cake,” “The Language,” and “Too Much.”
In addition to this, a series of Young Money singles from their recent compilation album, Rise of an Empire, resulted in “Trophies,” a track featuring Drake.
Nothing Was The Same turned out to be another huge hit for the Canadian-born hip-hop star. Not only did it peak at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and generate a double-platinum single, but the release sold 658,000 copies its first week and has since sold 1.34 million copies total.
