Drake has given fans a sneak preview of his new single Started From The Bottom.

It had been rumoured that the Canadian rapper would unveil the first track from his upcoming third album at the Grammys on February 10 - but the 26-year-old chose to post the song online instead, saying "it has truly been too long".

"My good friends, it has truly been too long. Today is the day to begin sharing my newest work with you. This is the first single off of my upcoming album," he wrote on his blog October's Very Own.

The song tells Drake's journey from teen TV actor to hip-hop heavyweight.

The Grammy-nominated rapper, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, continued: "I feel sometimes that people don't have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn't consistent with actual events.

"I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and I'm excited for this song to find a place in your life as well."

He explained: "I didn't feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song. It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me.

"Judging by this post, the tour that we've been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artwork... I think it's safe to say we're back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon," he added, signing off with a quote - "You don't have to ask me how I'm doing... just listen to the music."

Making resources more readily available to the public is a worthwhile mission. You especially enjoy seeing children benefit from your hard work. Thanks to you, they'll have better opportunities for advancement.More
