While everyone has been devouring Yeezus for the past week or so, Drake has been readying the release of four new tracks, two of which feature the star rapper as a featured guest. “The Motion” is one of the tunes that has Drake in the spotlight, and it works as a natural progression from his hit single “Started From The Bottom.” With help from SBTRKT collaborator Sampha, Drake sounds as at ease with his current situation as he ever has. Now that he’s here, he can look around and see just how far he’s climbed. “I guess it’s just the motion,” Drake rap-sings on the track, showing astute awareness that the peak is never the end of the journey.
October’s Very Own is giving away the four new tracks, “The Motion,” “Jodeci Freestyle,” as well as PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Over Here” and Migos’ “Versace” for free. Drake’s upcoming studio LP, Nothing Was The Same, will hit record stores and digital outlets 17 September 2013.
