On Tuesday, Drake's latest album, Nothing Was The Same will finally hit stores. Although it isn't available for purchase yet, it leaked last week, along with its credits. When we read through the credits, we learned that the production was primarily handled by Noah "40" Shebib, just like all of Drake's projects. However, Drake and 40 still enlisted a number of other producers including Boi-1da, Mike Zombie, Majid Jordan, Nineteen85, Detail, Key Wane, Hudson Mohawke, and Jake One. But what we really wanted to know about were the samples.
We knew from Drake's July GQ cover story that he sampled Whitney Houston and Curtis Mayfield on "Tuscan Leather," but there's a number of other samples that give some insight to what inspired Drake and his producers in the studio. Canadian pianist Chilly Gonzales—who previously worked with Drake on songs like "Marvin's Room"—contributed to the Jhené Aiko featured "From Time," while Argentinian musician and producer Bruno Sanfilippo is sampled on "Started From The Bottom." The album's samples display Drake's ability to take inspirations as diverse as Whitney Houston and Wu-Tang Clan, and create his own take on the classics. Like he said, he does want this album to be played at weddings one day.
