Drake Explains ‘Nothing Was The Same’ Album Art
The cover is a two-part piece that features a baby Drizzy looking directly at an adult version of the rapper/singer. And there’s a good reason for that, according to MTV News. They spoke with Drake during the Video Music Awards and he revealed that the artwork represents that his “most clean, concise thoughts from now, and my best recollection of [the past].”
Drake continued, “I wanted to give people something that they’d be like, ‘I’ll never forget this right here.’” He added that “it’s vibrant and there’s something about it that captures you, and I think that’s kinda how this album sounds.” The album isn’t necessarily light, he said, but the art captures the music’s deeper meaning.
