While on the Toronto set for his forthcoming “Successful” video, he revealed to MTV News exclusively that he’ll be re-releasingSo Far Gone to retail outlets on September 15.
According to Drake, the revamped project will feature most of the familiar tracks that have powered his rise, from the Trey Songz and Lil Wayne-backed “Successful” to his hit “Best I Ever Had.”
But there will be a new record, “Fear,” added to the track list. The never-before-heard song will be tacked on to the end of So Far Gone and will serve as the transition from his mixtape toThank Me Later.
According to Drake, the last line of “Fear” will be the first line heard on his debut.
“I did this song that no one has ever heard before, ever,” he explained. “[It’s] a song called ‘Fear.’ I recorded it when I did So Far Gone — the first verse and half of the second verse I had gotten through. But then I just stopped because it was getting eerie. It was getting where I didn’t know if I could [finish it]. And then the other night I had a moment and I finished the song. That’s gonna be the last song on the retail [version of] So Far Gone. And the third verse transitions into Thank Me Later. So the last line of the third verse is gonna be the first line on my album.”
