#SOTD | Drake – Make Me Proud ft. Nicki Minaj [Audio]
New York, NY – Gearing up for his appearance on Saturday Night Live tomorrow, Drake has premiered a new song that will appear on his forthcoming album Take Care. “Make Me Proud,” which features Nicki Minaj, was premiered Thursday night with Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex.
“Whenever I make songs surrounding women, I always try to find refreshing stances to take as opposed to just like, ‘Oh, you’re sexy’ or ‘Oh, I want you.’ The song, it really came up in passing conversation, just being like, ‘I’m proud of you,'” he recently told MTV News.
Drake also promised MTV that his SNL appearance would be “larger than life” as he’ll be performing the new song and will likely add “Headines” to the set as well. Drake did not confirm whether Nicki Minaj would join him for the first live performance of the song but it’s probably a safe bet. Drake also mentioned his interest in getting some acting in, adding “I think that I’m gonna be involved in the actual skits.”
