A previously unreleased song by Drake titled "On My Way" surfaced last night. The song, which the singer apparently recorded several years ago, features vocalist and songwriter James Fauntleroy, who worked with Drake on "Girls Love Beyoncé." The sultry track is an intimate bedroom-eyed R&B song with Drake singing about arriving at an airport and needing only an address to visit a pining lover. Whether or not the track will be included on Drake's upcoming, Nothing Was the Same, has yet to be confirmed.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
