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.

He also said that Marvin Gaye's 1978 double album "Here My Dear" has been a big influence on his current musical direction. Of Nothing Was the Same, Drake said, "I want to be the one you listen to this summer."

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
