Drake: I wish I wrote song of the summer

Drake is rethinking some of his music career decisions this year after checking out other rap offerings.

The rapper is preparing to release his new single Hold On, We're Going Home, which is featured on his upcoming third studio album Nothing Was the Same.

He also guest appears on rapper Migos’ tune Versace, which has proven to be a big hit this season with listeners.

Drake is very particular about the songs he selects to rap on and the musician wishes he would have made the decision to collaborate with one particular fellow emcee.

"I was sitting with DJ Drama and a bunch of people in the studio just debating about Atlanta records and when I heard [rapper Migo’s track] Versace, right away [I liked it]," Drake recalled MTV News. "Shout out to Rich Homie Quan too, he's killing it on his own, but it was a toss-up between Migos and Rich Home Quan as far as records I loved and wanted to get on. I was supposed to do Type of Way [also] and I probably should've done them both but I've just been trying to finish this album.

"That record is the song of the summer, I regret not getting on it, but I feel like now if I get on it, people are gonna be like 'ah man you waited too long’. I like to have the jump on it. I wish I would've written that record. That's Toronto talk — you feel a type of way, that's our lingo, so I should've probably been involved in that."

Drake’s creative process is very natural.

The star never forces a good song.

"As far as for people I don't know, I pick songs that I feel like I'll fit well on, or I have a flow for it,” he explained.

“And then everybody else is just...I like organic things, things that come together.”
