Drake has released a trailer to promote his new album, which features him and his crew doing shots out of his Grammy award – watch it below.

The rapper and singer announced this weekend (June 22) that he would be releasing his third album 'Nothing Was The Same' on September 17. The promo released today captures Drake's excitement when his Grammy award for Best Rap Album, for 2011's 'Take Care', arrives in the post. After taking the gong out of the box, the video shows him pouring drink into the gramaphone-shaped award and passing it around for his crew to drink out of.

Drake also revealed four new tracks from his forthcoming new album this weekend on his website. The new material featured includes 'Jodeci' - a freestyle rap with Roc Nation signing J Cole, a contribution to PARTYNEXTDOOR song 'Over Here', a remix of Migo track 'Versace' and a new track 'The Motion', which is widely reported to appear on the forthcoming full-length release. 'The Motion' also features a guest appearance from SBTRKT collaborator Sampha and sees the rapper discussing the difficulties of accommodating work, family and pleasure.

This follows from the US star's recent North American tour announcement this week, which sees him tackle 41 dates across the country alongside Miguel under the label of the 'Would You Like A Tour?' tour.

Drake also unveiled a new track 'Girls Love Beyoncé' earlier this year, as well as two further offerings entitled 'Start From The Bottom' and '5AM in Toronto'. The first track, which saw the rapper work with Justin Timberlake collaborator James Fauntleroy, features Drake singing portions of Destiny's Child hit 'Say My Name'.

'Nothing Was The Same' follows on from his 2011 album 'Take Care', which has been certified platinum and has sold over two million copies to date.
