New Song: Drake – ‘I Get Lonely Too’

Published: Tuesday 5th Oct 2010 by Trent

Here is the 1st track to surface from Drake’s ‘It’s Never Enough’ mixtape. The Noah Shebib-produced ‘I Get Lonely’ depicts the versatile rapper’s spin on TLC’s classic ‘Fanmail’. Check it out below:

Drake is definitely not a major vocalist but this is certainly a respectable effort. The tone of his voice is the key to his approach and it worked well with the dark and almost haunting production. Yes Drake rarely has the ability to deliver such performances live but in the studio he knows how to put his voice to work.

      My sentiments exactly !

    I really like 40’s productions (and I would love for CB to work with him) but Drake’s voice is starting to really bore me. He sings so much now in his rhymes that I don’t find it interesting when he does a full song singing.

  5. royalkev October 5, 2010

    Wow, I love Drake as a songwriter and “singer” more than I do as a rapper.

  6. TTSUP3R October 5, 2010

    Really REALLY like this. Still not a big fan of Drizzy, but this is nice.

  7. PLAIN AND SIMPLE October 5, 2010

    humm!!!!!!!!!! I wondering who he is singing THAT song to. LMFAO

  8. Tina October 5, 2010

    I find this song to very dark – the heavy ominous drum beat isnt appealing to me at all. I will say THANK YOU Drake for actually singing and not rapping and not starting it with the usual vulgarities he likes to start EVERY song with.
    He is my fellow Canadian though so Props to him!

    Aww he remade one of my favorite songs by TLC. I miss them so much man. It doesn’t sound bad either, although I’m a bit jealous he’s remaking one of der songs. *sighs* I wish Left Eye was here so they could make another album. Damn life really sucks sometimes when there are certain things you can NEVER change. =(

    I like it. Love the original by TLC!

    And I didn’t know he was releasing a mixtape. If so, I love the mixtape Drake but I’m hoping he’s actually “mixtape Drake” instead of mainstream Drake which the song seems to be.

    loves it. One of my favorite TLC songs!

  13. jewelz October 5, 2010

    I like drake singing better than rapping actually

  14. Wake Up Six October 5, 2010

    This is a FAIL!!!!

    Where is the new Lyrics…He just sings the hook OVER n OVER!

  15. the kiddz October 5, 2010

    This was nice! I wasn’t expecting much, but his tone had depth and character. I prefer him singing and his melodies, than hearing him rap. It’s too bad he can’t do this live.

  16. Danni October 5, 2010

    Just like you I get lonely too…

  17. Neiman October 5, 2010

    TRENT, you are so hypocritical. Here you are praising Drake for this mediocre performance on this song, of which HE COULD NEVER DO LIVE, but turn around a scorn Rihanna who has pretty good vocals and can DEFINITELY DELIVER LIVE!

    Hey Geronimo Dueces. Thank You For The Link!

    Thanks So Much!

    Where’s the “…Just…Like…You…” in the background? 🙁
    In all seriousness, though, I gotta give Drake props on the choice to remake this song. He may not have the greatest vocals but the song “Fanmail” was always my favorite song on that (disappointing) TLC album and was, by and large, the BEST song on that album not released as a single…so I’m not going to be able to hate, even if I wanted to. I wish everything in this version wasn’t so monotonous sounding but I guess you can’t squeeze blood from a turnip, can you? Good effort.

  20. mesouth October 5, 2010

    Great!!!! Beautiful! tho TLC’s version is on an othel level.

  21. TheEverwing October 5, 2010

    I live for his cover of this song.

  22. Perio October 5, 2010

    this video should be a part 2 from find your love video and let us see what happens after the end did she shoot him or not…

  23. Tami October 5, 2010

  24. Curtis October 5, 2010

    MY FAVORITE TLC SONG!!!!!!!! F****** DOPE!

  25. Blasian October 5, 2010

    FanMail was TLC’s Worst Album even the group feels the same

  26. Aaron October 5, 2010

    @Blasian WTF do you mean Fanmail was TLC’s worst album. It’s one of their best 12 million worldwide. TLC said they didn’t like 3D

  27. Yellow Gorilah October 5, 2010


    Please don’t re-do tlc you gotta have that swag to be singing these types of songs. I love the Original song amazing. This is just =|

  29. NigelAhmad October 6, 2010

    I love the original, but i cant judge is voice on this track. His voice is heavily reverbed.

  30. Nicole October 6, 2010

    Please Drake please don’t remake another TLC song. please honey stick to ur rap or what ever u call it that u be doing.

  31. carmen October 6, 2010

    lol Drake and that nasally monotones singing. He sounds ok but I couldn’t listen to a mixtape of him singing this way. Sounds kinda weird. Yes drakes rapping voice can be annoying but I like the real rapping Drake

  32. TheThe October 8, 2010

    That Drake is obviously full of s***.
    how can mediocre singer like this can remake a TLC song ?
    TLC are like Michael Jackson to him!
    i said this is disrespectful.
    just like the trashy fat p**** the-dream did with Aaliyah’s back and forth.

    there ‘s something wrong in Drake”s head .

    I just hope he is paying TLC for singing their WHOLE song.. idk I love Drake but I am disappointed in this remake.. the only difference is his beat is much more smoothe while TLC’s had a lot of pizazz and sound effects.. The original 1999 song “Fanmail” is better and as a TLC fan I am not feeling it..

    still love Drake but this wasn’t it, maybe if he chanced majority of the lyrics, keeping the chorus.
