Drizzy shares some insight into his third album and how it will differ from "Take Care," he also speaks on his upcoming tour.
He says that his mood was "down" for Take Care, and it won't be the same for his third album.
"I think my mood will be reflected in the tempos I choose for the music. A lot of 'Take Care,' it's down... and I think a lot of it had to do with being back in Toronto, getting reacquainted with the life I had before (fame) and difficulties with that, and at the same time trying to express excitement, express joy... "
The Toronto native continued, "Now I'm in a very, very, very, very different place than I've ever been, really focused on myself, really focused on my health, my body, my mind, really wanting to be the best I can possibly be...I'm in a different mindset now that I'm very proud of... It's going to be a very interesting album -- probably, to be honest with you, conceptually one of the most exciting projects I've worked on, just 'cause there's so many new things going on in my life."
Drake also said he made the move from Toronto to L.A., "I still live in Toronto and love the city," he said, "but there's just so much going on for me in the U.S. I recently made the move to L.A. There's a new atmosphere. I'm getting to know new people...Anybody knows that when it's new, that's when I thrive. When there's new things to talk about that's really when I get off."
On the artists he plans to tour with, Drake divulges that if he did not already have a song with every one of them, he does now, "I know a lot of these guys very well; not only am I a fan of their music, but I have very strong alliances with these guys," Drizzy said. "I guess it's safe to say now that anybody I didn't have a song with before I have a song with now. I made sure of that. I want to go out on the tour with the most exciting artists right now and I want to make sure I have songs all of them."
He spoke on what fans can expect during the show, "fans are going to get some exciting new musical material that will probably end up dropping a few days before the tour, so we can play them on the tour, which was really my concept."
He added, "If we start getting really into and start vibing, maybe the last few nights it's a collaboration show. Maybe we do all our songs on the stage together, making exciting moments for people that are not just about seeing all of us individually."
