UPDATE: Jay Z is set to drop two verses on Drake's "Nothing was the Same," with both verses landing on the outro, tentatively-titled "Pound Cake." The album is also set to feature Lil Wayne and Hudson Mohawke of TNGHT.

Drake's upcoming album, Nothing was the Same, scheduled for a September 17 release, will feature Jay Z and Lil Wayne. 

News of Drake's collaborators was reported by Rolling Stone today (August 16). In the article, Drake also talks about taking a new musical approach with his upcoming collection. 

"This album is about growth," Drake says in the Rolling Stone piece. "When I play it for people, they ask, 'Who's that rapping?' I'm like, 'That's me.'"

Drake's Nothing was the Same will also include "Connect," a song that has not been leaked yet.  

"That one hits you in the heart," Drake says. "It's painful and beautiful at the same time."

TNGHT's Hudson Mohawke, who recently worked with Kanye West on Yeezus, will also appear on the album. 

Drake announced the release date for Nothing was the Same with a promotional clip for the project. In it, Drake celebrated a Grammy award with a drink.

According to Billboard, Jay Z has two verses on the album, both featured on the tentatively-titled "Pound Cake." The track is set to be the album's outro, according to Billboard.

    Drake showed me this letter from Jay Z Yo Drake: Man I need your help. I need to be relevant again. Before you point out to HGMC sales, the samsung ceo was a huge stan and wanted a million copies. Unfortuantely, Beyonce took my earned money. As for the additional copies, me and beyonce bought 400k of them. In reality, it's my biggest bomb. I want to be on your album and I'll pay 10 million for it. Thank you Jay Z P.S. Timberlake is also desperate to be relevant again.

  • Drake runs rap
    The king of rap had to put jay z on a song cus that overrated irrelevent camel was begging drake so he can try to be cool again by being on a masterpeice album. Drake gave jay z the outro so people wont have to listen to a full song with that camel. Drake is gonna go platinum first week and be the king of rap. DRAKE IS THE FACE OF RAP DRAKE RUNS RAP PERIOD

    Jay Z knows he's flopping so he has to pay drake to get any relevancy. Drake for life!!

      You're wrong, dentalbitch. Jay Z is not flopping and is always relevant. Drake is a huge Jay stan, he even admits it in song. Drake wants Hov.

      Trolls like you are not helping Drake or anybody else you support gain new fans by having to put down other artists to big up your favorites, first it shows hints of insecurity, second it makes people hate them even more, even if they are good.
    • dentaldamboy
      Then how come his last album flopped and his singles are nowhere to be found? Jay Z wants Drake.
    • Anonymous
      Dumbass. His last album went platinum before it was released and it currently sold 937k, Holy Grail reached the Top 5 and Tom Ford made it into the Top 40. Hov ain't flopping at all. He doesn't want Drake, Drake wants Jay Z.

    ...."started from the bottom" was a garbage single (hated chorus, simple ass verses, no bueno at all)"hold on we going home" is decent.....for an r&b song........hoping these 2 singles aren't a reflection for the rest of the album.....I WANT TO HEAR BARS FROM HIM...... FYI.......TAKE CARE IS STILL DOPE AS F***, FRONT TO BACK.....
