Single of The Day: Drake – Started From The Bottom 

Setelah di juluki “Feature King” belakangan ini, dikarenakan seringnya Drake memberi kontribusi dalam beberapa lagu beserta berbagai artis seperti “Bitches Love Me” bersama Lil Wayne dan Future, “Right Here” bersama Justin Bieber dan “Poetic Justice” bersama Kendrick Lamar. Drake akhirnya mengeluarkan solo single yang akan menjadi single pertamanya dari album ketiga yang di rencanakan rilis tahun 2013 ini.

Started From The Bottom” resmi di rilis pada malam Grammy Awards 2013 (10 February 2013), tetapi Drake telah mengunggah lagu ini dalam OVO Blognya beberapa hari yang lalu. Semua ini ia lakukan karena ia lebih senang jika musiknya diunggah dirinya sendiri langsung kepada penggemarnya, sebelum lagunya menjadi sorotan media. Ia menginginkan pendapat penggemarnya sebelum konferensi pers, interview dan hal lain yang menyangkut media.

Tetapi tentunya lagu ini telah menyebar begitu cepat, bahkan sudah dinamai “Anthem” untuk Hip-Hop oleh Elliott Wilson, jurnalis musik ternama di Amerika. Produser lagu ini, Mike Zombie, juga mengatakan bahwa di dalam lagu ini dapat di rasakan perkembangan diri Drake. Lagu ini lebih menggunakan instrumental dari alat musik drums dan piano, MTV menggambarkannya sebagai “keberangkatan” dari karya sebelumnya. Drake menerjemahkan lagu ini sebagai cerita tentang awal kehidupan dan awal karirnya.

LYRIC
My good friends,
It has truly been too long. I assume you’re all keeping well and making the most of this 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.

(Chorus)
Started from the bottom now we’re here
Started from the bottom now my whole team fucking here
Started from the bottom now we’re here
Started from the bottom now the whole team here, nigga
Started from the bottom now we’re here
Started from the bottom now my whole team here, nigga
Started from the bottom now we’re here
Started from the bottom now the whole team fucking here

I done kept it real from the jump
Living at my mama’s house we’d argue every month
Nigga, I was trying to get it on my own
Working all night, traffic on the way home
And my uncle calling me like “Where ya at?
I gave you the keys told ya bring it right back”
Nigga, I just think its funny how it goes
Now I’m on the road, half a million for a show
And we…

(Back to Chorus)

Boys tell stories about the man
Say I never struggled, wasn’t hungry, yeah, I doubt it, nigga
I could turn your boy into the man
There ain’t really much I hear that’s poppin’ off without us, nigga
We just want the credit where it’s due
I’ma worry about me, give a fuck about you
Nigga, just as a reminder to myself
I wear every single chain, even when I’m in the house
Cause we…

(Back to Chorus)

No new niggas, nigga we don’t feel that
Fuck a fake friend, where you real friends at?
We don’t like to do too much explaining
Story stays the same I never changed it
No new niggas, nigga we don’t feel that
Fuck a fake friend, where you real friends at?
We don’t like to do too much explaining
Story stay the same through the money and the fame
Cause we…

(Back to Chorus)
