New Drake Single: "All Me" ft. 2 Chainz & Big Sean

Drake stealthily unleashed the second single from Nothing Was the Same late last night. And with top-notch verses from 2 Chainz and Big Sean, "All Me" has the potential to be another smash along the lines of "Started From the Bottom."

Thematically, "All Me" has a lot in common with the first single from his upcoming third. The chorus finds Drake continuing to cast himself as the self-reliant, pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps rapper who made it to the top without favors from anyone. "Came up, that's all me / Stayed true, that's all me / No help, that's all me / All me for real," Drizzy sings over a crisp, slightly ominous beat. Although honestly, it's just as easy to imagine him rapping these lines over a remix of "Started From the Bottom."

2 Chainz gets the first verse here but Big Sean probably steals the show by rapping about banging his erstwhile babysitter later in life (tell that to a therapist). Listen to it above and get ready for Nothing Was the Same, which drops on 9/17 and will probably be a monster hit.

So cheer up, Drake. There's no need to look so glum all the time.
