Drake - 'Nothing Was The Same'

Drake - 'Nothing Was The Same'

Now on his third album, hipster R&B’s very own Charlie Brown remains life’s eternal sufferer. He invented the acronym ‘YOLO’ (you only live once), so it’s bizarre that he continues to waste our time with his first-world problems: “This...
