Pound Cake / Paris Morton Music 2 (Feat. Jay-Z)

As I’m sure most of you know by now, Drake‘s album has already managed to spring a leak (so I guess some things are still the same after all). Instead of boring you with our initial impressions of the project though, we’ve decided to give you a little taste for yourself, starting off with some “Pound Cake,” the closing track from the new record. Billed as a sequel to “Paris Morton Music” (aka Drake’s verse from “Aston Martin Music“), the elaborate single features a heavily anticipated verse from Jay-Z, who fits right in over the soulful, yet spectral instrumental. The distinctive track serves as a reflective moment for both emcees, while a vocal sample of Wu-Tang Clan‘s “C.R.E.A.M.” reminds us what the main essence of the song really is.

We’re curious to see how you guys think this stacks up against their previous collaboration, “Light Up,” from Drake’s debut album, Thank Me Later. In our opinion, this song might represent the best material we’ll hear from Drizzy in 2013, but for those of you willing to wait to find out, make sure to grab a pre-order of Nothing Was The Same, in stores on September 24th.
