Drake – Nothing Was the Same


Drake’s Nothing Was the Same album shows an image that echoes sentiments of the title by revealing a side portrait of him as an adolescent and the same image of him in manhood for the deluxe edition. What makes it a great cover is that it evokes a reminiscent feeling and curiosity. Kadir Nelson, award-winning artist, created the cover. Nelson, who also created Micheal Jackson’s Michael cover art, created the imagery after Drake shared his appreciation for Nelson’s “Cleaned Cotton” piece.
