Drake Is All Smiles on Billboard Magazine Cover

Drake is all smiles on the cover of the latest Billboard magazine and rightfully so. The Grammy-winning rapper-singer is ruling the music game and is about to drop his third album, ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ next month.

Drizzy’s 1,000-watt smile brightens up the magazine’s Fall Preview issue. The tagline, “Drake Finds Happiness,” seem to point that the interview is about the Toronto rhymer finally coming into his success after a year of ups and downs.

“I’m 26, I don’t know what else I could be doing better than this. I feel incredible,” reads the quote.

The image is quite different from his XXL magazine cover where he’s looking very serious and not smiling at all. And quite frankly, Drake’s last album ‘Take Care,’ was a little melancholy.

So can we expect a more upbeat album this time? Possibly. ‘Started From the Bottom’ and ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ are confident and loving, respectively.

Meanwhile, Drake revealed that his dad, Dennis Graham, will appear on a bonus track on ‘NWTS’ called ‘Heat of the Moment.’

“My dad is a star,” he tells XXL magazine (via MissInfo). “That’s what you have to understand. I can call my dad right now and be like, ‘Yo, dad, I need you to fly to shoot.’ He’s always down.”

“I’m living my dad’s dream. My dad wanted to be a famous singer,” he continues. “It’s a real relationship. Not to be ironic, we go through the motions of a father-son relationship. Right now, he happens to be extremely stable and content, and I take care of what I can for him. All he wants to do is go to Beale Street in Memphis and play music. He’s rediscovered his passion for music and for being a musician.”

Drake’s ‘Nothing was the Same’ arrives Sept. 24.

Billboard magazine’s Fall Preview issue, featuring Drake on the cover, hits newsstands next week.
