Sunday Soundtrack: Drake ft Andreena Mills – “Closer to my dreams”

Now Imma put my hand up and admit I was not even trying to listen to Drake in 2007/early 2008…

I remember my friend telling me “..this kid is the future, listen to this track..” and I think I had to remove a few points from her cool scale.

Fast forward to So Far Gone and I HAD to admit the kid was a star, that mixtape was CRAZY, so now like millions of people out there I’m eagerly awaiting his debut album Thank Me Later.
But this means I paid no attention to his mixtape Comeback Season..
as in ..I’ve never listened to it..until…

I heard his flip of Goapele‘s joint “Closer” with Andreena Mills on hook duty..
Sounding cool I think…
Then I heard him spit these words…
“..On my Craig David shit the Artful dodger
Shola Ama, I told her I’mma
Bout to get my run-on so hold the commas…”

I was like HOLD THE UFCK UP!!!…Pulled it up about 4-5 times…
Paused it…and had to type this mini ramble.

Drake shouted out UK R&B stars long b4 the recent interest in our homegrown talent from the USA.
(I know Marsha has been banging on about how she thinks Craig David was the Blueprint for Drake now I think she’s right!)

So now I’ve clicked download…might have found something to take me through the week ahead.

This tale was inspired by a google search after watching this..

Drake x Goapele perform “Closer 2010” in San Francisco.
