Drake’s ‘Nothing Was the Same’ Album Cover With Different Hairstyles


When Drake debuted the cover of his third album, ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ the internet went wild. Here was a painting of the rapper’s floating head against a cloudy backdrop, his face showcasing a lifeless stare (maybe he was looking at the Toronto Raptors franchise thinking, “WTF did I just get into?”). Memes were created and laughs ensued, which further added fuel to the artist’s emo fire.

Of course, the Kadir Nelson artwork didn’t stop ‘Nothing Was The Same’ from debuting at No. 1. But did it hurt sales? Probably not that much since the effort sold 658,000 in its first week. At the same time, many were disappointed that Drake’s third LP didn’t sell 1 million that week, which felt attainable for an MC of his caliber. Maybe a different haircut would’ve helped him out.

With the exception of Jay Z breaking the system, the last rapper to sell a million in one week with a Caesar haircut was 50 Cent with ‘The Massacre’ in 2005. As a result, it seems Caesars don’t really sell records. Flowing manes and twisting knots might, so here’s the ‘Nothing Was the Same’ album cover remixed.
