Drake talks about the highly anticipated "Trophies" record with Hit-Boy, and why it didn't make the final cut of "Nothing Was The Same."
This past week Drake debuted the Hit-Boy produced record "Trophies" which didn't make his album Nothing Was The Same while he was at the Barclays Center in New York. The track has been a topic of discussion ever since Drizzy teased fans about it back in September. Earlier than that, we've now realized the record was used in Drake's trailer for NWTS. All this to say that fans are excited to hear the collaboration, which Drake finally spoke on with Revolt TV.
Although "Trohpies" didn't actually make the final cut, Drake says, "I wouldn't even call it a left-over. It was definitely on the album. I know Hit-Boy's gunna see this and be like 'pffft,' it was definitely on the album."
Drake explained what went wrong with the track, "I'm not a 'just throw it together' kinda guy. And I had two different hooks on there, I didn't like either of them. I started sending it around and as great of a job as other people did, it didn't sound right if I wasn't on the hook. I always wanna do my own hooks for the sake of my performances. I don't like being off a hook, 'cause then I can't really give you a moment if someone else is doing the hook."
He went on to confirm that he will be dropping it soon, and he also revealed he has other unheard material in the cut, which we will also hopefully get to hear in the near future.
"I'ma drop 'Trophies' though. I'ma finish it up and drop 'Trophies.' We got some stuff we did for the Aaliyah album, that's crazy. I got a record with YG, that's crazy. The Wu-Tang Forever remix is sitting there just waiting..." Drake trailed off.
