TGIF: Drake's "Trophies"




It's Friday, and you know what? YOLO. I only whip out the famed acronym when I'm approaching a cashier with a bag of Smart Food, ordering an unnecessary bevvy close to last call, going for a subzero wintertime run, or posting a new Drake track that I can totally get on board with.

In his favourite hour of the morning last week ("owl hours"), Drake dropped "Trophies," the track that seemed to disappear following its use in his Nothing Was The Same album trailer. "Trophies" is back in full, with a boatload of triumphant horns, whacking beats and Drizzy declaring that "this shit is not a love song." While the song is mainly your typical hip-hop chest pumping (it is called "Trophies," after all), Drake's right - the non-love song mentions his parents' split, and proves feistier (and catchier) than some of the excessive slow jam crooning on Nothing Was The Same.
