New Song: Drake – 'Started From The Bottom'

Published: Friday 1st Feb 2013 by David


After weeks of being teased with reports of a new album from the star, tonight saw confirmation of that news with the release of Drake“s new single, “Started From The Bottom“.

Though initially unsure about it, our second play of the song already has us anticipating its supporting album and an iTunes release, so we can get our purchase on.

Enjoy below…

On the song, the Rapper explained:

“My good friends,

It has truly been too long. I assume you”re all keeping well and making the most of this pokies download year that has been given to us. Today is the day to begin sharing my newest work with you. This is the first single off of my upcoming album. I feel sometimes that people don”t have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn”t consistent with actual events. My family and my second family (consisting of the best friends anybody could ever have) all struggled and worked extremely hard to make all this happen. I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and I”m excited for this song to find a place in your life as well. I didn”t feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song.

It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me. Judging by this post, the tour that we”ve been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artwork…I think it”s safe to say we”re back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

  8. F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ h***) February 1, 2013

    I like it…a bit repetitive but I still like it!
    Why is it so short though? 🙁
    I’m sure it will grow on me just like all his songs.

  9. ThatsHowYouFeel? February 1, 2013

  11. QueenOfTheNavy February 1, 2013

    Slayed my life tbh.

  12. Oh Baby (B****** Will Deal With SLAYONCE’S Slayage) February 1, 2013

    I like it…or maybe it’s this alcohol that’s liking it coz I haven’t liked a Drake first single since best I ever had. He looks like s** in that pic though, another reason why I probably like this song…Some fool lied and told me Beyoncé had released her new single and made me leave the club for a bit. Ayt b******, see you Sunday at the Beyoncé bowl 😉

  13. BeyWhoUWanna February 1, 2013

    Drake has a new album coming out? Guess we know this means don’t we. Bye Bye Chris and hi hi Drakondra, said Riherpes.

  14. Monstarebel February 1, 2013

  16. King B>Rihanna February 1, 2013

  17. Cream February 1, 2013

  18. wrinkle flop ora, February 1, 2013

    He is over. Has he ever had an album that sold like Get rich or die tryin or ANY DMX HIT albums? He has all this hype as being some rap legen, but, apart from ‘ what my name with rihanna, has he had a number 1 WW HIT? I mean, his album only sells a million. He has never sold more than 5 million for an album, and he thinks he is the king of RAP? F*** outta here.

    • AmbeRussell February 1, 2013

      to play devil’s advocate, we are not in a generation where musicians are selling 5mill and if your a rapper, dont expect it to be 2 million. and drakes last album did sell 1.9mill and 1.5 for the previous.

  19. wrinkle flop ora, February 1, 2013

    song is wack

  20. JER February 1, 2013

    Ok this song is annoying as f***

  21. Gilberto February 1, 2013

    “Started As A Bottom”? This explains why he has a record deal. NEXT!

  22. My Forehead Tho February 1, 2013

    Tf is this?

    Usually his songs are tolerable, but this s*** will get NO air play, ever

  23. ADC143 February 1, 2013

    I don’t f*** with Drake. If not for clowns like Flo Rida and LMFAO, I would be calling this fool a “pop-rapper.”

  24. jake.ubb February 1, 2013

    I’ll have to give this a few more spins… I was expecting something that packed a hard punch… just not entirely sure what that was? hopefully it grows on me… if not i am sure he’ll put out a track with Nicki or Rihanna that can reinstate my interest. i follow back!

  25. OMG Just Google Kelsnetwork and see what happens… February 1, 2013

    its ok..i expected more..i mean just google kelsnetwork…

  26. You Wanna Bey Me February 2, 2013

    Nah son!

  27. SeeSeeCC February 2, 2013

    This is NOT the Drake I was looking forward to. The only part of the song that sounds relatively like him is when he sings…ummm boo PLEASE try again. I’ve been waiting for a new Drake song…not a disappointment.

  28. aishaaguilerakeys February 2, 2013

    I’m excited to see you soon ! The song’s ok, it’ll surely grow onme, hope you don’t take the same road as Lil Wayne when it comes to beats ! Love you !

  29. antertain February 2, 2013

    I really don’t feel it but with a video it will do its rounds and do well.

    The simpletons who love basic rhymes and lyrical content will embrace the hook.

    Drake has a lot more skill than this!!!!!

  30. the real xoxo February 2, 2013

    i cannot believe how low hip hop has degenerated. we went from illmatic and 36 chambers to this.
    He looks like a complete pillow-biter in that pic aswell.

  31. J February 2, 2013

    This really is bad.. wish he would ditch young money and try going on his own

  32. Pop Royalty February 2, 2013

    new song : drake-######The Bottom.

  33. CHUDDS February 2, 2013

    The hook is repetitive and catchy. It will be a hit.

  34. Niki February 2, 2013

    Dont like it but i will support since im a fan of u….

  35. Ashap February 2, 2013

    This s*** goes hard. I really have been replaying this since last night and nothing else. It’s hot. he kills it and im excited for the grammys and his album. Yes he could do better but it is a first single so he obviously has a lot more in store.

  36. Vegas Girl February 2, 2013

    Nope. I listened to it once (I don’t need a song to “grow” on me by forcing myself to listen to it multiple times. Either I like it or I don’t) and that was enough.

  37. วิทยุธานินทร์ June 2, 2013

    I used to be recommended this blog by my cousin. I am no longer certain whether this post is written by way of him as nobody else know such specific about my difficulty. You are amazing! Thanks!
