Drake got a chance to explain the artwork to his upcoming album “Nothing Was the Same” yesterday after his MTV VMA rehearsal.

“It’s a child version of myself starring at myself now. When I try to think back through this journey, it’s so hard to pinpoint all these moments and it gets foggy. Even on past albums when I been trying to tell this story, I’ve got there, but maybe not got there all the way. What that album art is to me is that this is my most clear, concise thoughts from now and my best recollection of then” ~Drake
