Drake recently sat down with Google Music and spoke on a number of different topics, including the creation process of his new album “Take Care,” his most recent collaborations with Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, his legacy in music and much more.
On working with Rihanna:
“I really wanted to bring her into our world, but still allow her to be herself. I think she really shines bright. She comes from a place that’s so rich in culture, so rich in music, but being the most iconic female period right now—next to Nicki Minaj, of course… [Nicki is] just doing incredible, she’s my favorite person.”
On his legacy:
“I want people to really feel like I knew Drake while he was on this Earth. I know everything about him. There were no secrets, there was nothing that he hid, no feelings that he concealed. In five years, hopefully I have a couple more projects out that surpass Take Care, but I would like for them to say I remember that moment when I wasn’t sure what was gonna happen and Drake delivered an album that served a purpose in my life.”
On making good, quality music:
“I’m not the guy that would ever be able to make surface music with no substance. I think all my projects, hopefully, I’m working through some form of emotion because I think that’s what music is about. It’s about connecting and people being able to relate.”
