Drake's forthcoming new album, 'Nothing Was The Same', will feature guest appearances from Jay Z and Lil Wayne, it has been revealed.

Hudson Mohawke will be helping out on the production side and the album will also feature Drake rapping. He told Rolling Stone: "This album is about growth. When I play it for people, they ask, 'Who's that rapping?' I'm like, 'That's me.'"

The album will feature a song called 'Connect', of which Drake says: "That one hits you in the heart. It's painful and beautiful at the same time." 'Nothing Was The Same' will be released on September 17.

Earlier this summer, Drake released a new track 'The Motion', which is widely reported to be appearing 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.

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

'Nothing Was The Same' follows on from 2011 album 'Take Care', which has been certified platinum and has sold over 2 million copies to date.
