Drake may have ‘started from the bottom,’ but now he’ll be gracing the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards. Drizzy is scheduled to perform his song “Started From The Bottom” on live television for the first time. According to MTV.com:
“As if his infectious hit wasn’t proof enough, Drake is proving that he’s here when he returns to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday to give his first live television performance of ‘Started from the Bottom.’
“The video for his Nothing Was the Same lead single is up for two awards at this year’s show, including Best Direction and Best Hip Hop Video. (And judging from his tweet Wednesday morning, he’s particularly motivated to go home with one of the coveted Kaws-designed Moonmen. While he was there at last year’s VMAs to accept the Best Hip Hop award for “HYFR” with Lil Wayne, this will mark his first performance since 2010.”
The news isn’t all good from Drake’s camp. While he will be performing the lead single from his upcoming album, “Nothing Was The Same,” the album has been reportedly pushed back. According to vibe.com:
“But the good news comes with a minor setback as the Toronto MC will be pushing back the release of his album by one week. According to Hits Daily Double andBest Buy, NWTS is now scheduled to hit shelves Sept. 24.”
That’s only a week’s difference, so the delay shouldn’t affect fans much. In today’s digital distribution age, albums typically get leaked early—so fans may end up with the original September 17 date after all.
