Drake is in London right now, and took some time yesterday to speak with Kiss FM. In the chat he revealed some interesting insights about what he’s working on right now.
He is currently in the early stages of writing his third album, “collecting beats” and and “building a canvas.” He went further in the interview to mention that he wants Jamie xx to “have a big presence on the next album”. His inspiration? Movado, island music, and a desire to make “music with soul” rather than just defaulting to techno-style productions vis-a-vis David Guetta:
I’m a big dancehall fan…Movado is family to me. I feel like there was influence on ‘Take Care’. I’m not too in to four-to-the-floor techno/house feel. For me to get to that tempo, I feel like that’s what every artist does in America… like “if I want to be worldly I gotta go make a song with David Guetta..” Not that he doesn’t make incredible music, but for me I’d rather get with someone like Jamie xx and bring that soul and island feel to it. That’s when I start getting in to the faster tempo. I’m looking forward to doing more of that.
