“Where Were You”, an older but unreleased Drake track, is a hot song in which Drake talks about past love. This track is very reminiscent of the “Fall For Your Type” original. Colin Munroe’s vocals can be heard on the hook while production credits go to Boi-1da and D-10. “New” Drake music? I’m not complaining! Listen to the track after the jump.
A couple of weeks back, Drake attended Wiz Khalifa’s headlining tour in Toronto in which Mac Miller was an opener. While there, And Pop was able to snag an interview with Mac in which he talked about being a fan of Drake. It’s always great when artists can support one another! Catch the video after the jump and skip to the 1:20 mark.
Meek Mill had a show in D.C. last night which he brought out Drake as one of his special guest. Drake and Meek Mill performed their hit track “Amen” and Drake also performed “HYFR“. Watch the video below.
