Drake announced the Nothing Was the Same's title in February, shortly after debuting "Starting From the Bottom." The announcement came the same night he won the Best Rap Album Grammy Award for Take Care. He has confirmed that Jhene Aiko will be on the project.
UPDATE: HitsDailyDouble.com reports that Drake's third studio album, Nothing Was The Same is now releasing September 24. This is one week later than Drake's tweets indicated in late June.
UPDATE #2: Hours after HitsDailyDouble.com's reports, Drake confirmed that his third album is releasing a week later than initially planned. The Cash Money/Universal Records superstar additionally hinted at the album's artwork, designed by Southern California artist Kadir Nelson.
At OVOSound.com, Drizzy showed two versions of the artwork. It is unclear if they belong to standard and deluxe editions of the album, as has been done in recent months by Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, The-Dream and Big Sean, or if it is an album with multiple covers, as has been the case with Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy or The Roots' Things Fall Apart.
The artwork is below:
