Listen to the new Drake song “All Me,” feat. 2 Chainz and Big SeanBy Ru Johnson | August 1st, 2013 | 4 comments
After “Started From the Bottom,” “Jodeci Freestyle,” “5AM in Toronto,” ”Girls Love Beyoncé” and etc., etc. we have yet another new Drake song this year. While you were sleeping, Drake released a new single from “Nothing Was the Same.” This new Drake song featuring 2 Chainz and Big Sean is called “All Me.”
Kicking off with a little Aziz Ansari, “All Me” is a braggadocios dissertation over the down tempo, chopped and screwed operatic production from Key Wane. So far, “All Me” is better than “Started from the Bottom,” although the premise about the rise to success is the same. The rhymes from the trio are pretty healthy on this one even though 2 Chainz uses his umpteenth reference to a Mercedes Benz. Check for Big Sean’s iambic pentameter style flow change-up during his third verse appearance. Impressive from the Detroit native.
Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same” is due out on Sept. 17.
