It might very well seem like just yesterday that Drake released Take Care, but it’s actually been 14 months and counting since the YMCMB artist delivered his sophomore album to the masses.  Fortunately, fans of the Toronto native need not wait another second for a first taste off his forthcoming third studio album. “It has truly been too long. I assume you’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,” said Drake, through a message on his websiteStarted From The Bottom finds the A-lister donning his rapper hat, peppering laid back bars with a casual confidence, while reminding listeners about his journey through the industry from his humble beginnings.  Producer Mike Zombie provides the song’s boardwork, staying far out of the reach of Drake’s spotlight and in the process maximum spins at radio.  “I think it’s safe to say we’re back together again.”  Indeed Drake, so what is up your sleeve next?  Keep it locked to The Booth for all the latest on Drake’s forthcoming, currently-untitled and unscheduled LP.
