We were expecting to hearÂ newÂ material from material from Drake after the Grammys, but it seems as thought he has had a change of heart and decided to release the audio from his new single “Started From the Bottom” a little earlier.
The Mike Zombie-produced track can be heard below, along with the post that he attached to his OVO blog.
My good friends,
It has truly been too long. I assume youâ€™re all keeping well and making the most of this year that has been given to us. Today is the day to begin sharing my newest work with you. This is the first single off of my upcoming album. I feel sometimes that people donâ€™t have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isnâ€™t consistent with actual events. My family and my second family (consisting of the best friends anybody could ever have) all struggled and worked extremely hard to make all this happen. I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and Iâ€™m excited for this song to find a place in your life as well. I didnâ€™t feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song. It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me. Judging by this post, the tour that weâ€™ve been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artworkâ€¦I think itâ€™s safe to say weâ€™re back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Can’t say I’m a big fan of this one, but let’s just wait and see what else he has in store for his third album.
