Drake debuted another song from his upcoming Nothing Was the Same on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Friday night (September 13). Following the bow of “Wu-Tang Forever,” Drizzy appeared on the NBC late-night talk show to premiere “Too Much,” a stunning, piano-led track that features Sampha (who also contributed to Drake’s non-album highlight “The Motion”) playing keys and singing the hook, “Don’t think about it too much / There’s no need for us to rush this through / Don’t think about it too much / This is more than just a new lust for you.”
Drake introduced the song by saying, “Before I do this song, I just want to say to my friends and family, I want the best for everybody and I love you all.” The Toronto rapper then delivered a fierce performance that, in part, doubled as a carpe diem pep talk to a loved one: “My uncle used to have all these things on his bucket list / And now he’s acting like, ‘Oh well, this is life, I guess,’ / Nah, fuck that shit / Listen, man, you could still do what you want to do.”
The MC born Aubrey Graham also sat down with Fallon to talk about the much-discussed cover art for Nothing Was the Same, shower future tourmate Miguel with praise, and flirt with fellow guest Scarlett Johansson. Drake also played a round of charades with Fallon, ScarJo, and the Roots’ Black Thought.
Watch “Too Much” above and check out the interview and charade segments below. Drake’s Nothing Was the Same, one of 50 Fall Albums You Gotta Hear, arrives September 24. Unlike several other rap albums slated for the end of the year, Drizzy’s third proper LP will almost definitely make its deadline.
