  • Drake expresses wish to go back to acting and talks about making his music bigger

In his cover of W Art man magazine interview, Drake talked about making his music better and stronger and facing hatred as well as returning to acting.

Drake has been a fresh wave of musical talent ever since his first song came out and hit the fans. His album release this year was one of the greatest selling albums and the artist earned millions in doing shows around the world.

That is one of Drake’s many successes. Coming from a middle class Canadian family, Drake started his career as an actor in a Canadian soap Degrassi. It was the same time around that Drake stepped into recording his own music. When given a choice between acting and music, he chose music. That was 10 years ago.

Now the 29 years old star has learned a lot since his musical career started. According to Drake, he has always been striving to make his music better. He said that the music he has been playing has made him realize that he is a medium, a vessel for channeling the emotions of people.

He told W magazine that he wants to provide the music that becomes the background for people through all their times. That makes him strive to strengthen his music, make it better. He said that he thinks about it all the time. 

Drake is not an artist though who never looks back. When asked if he would be interested in acting, his answer was in the affirmative. Drake said that he has been an actor before he was a musician and he wouldn’t mind going to his old profession once more. His standards might have changed though. He is not settling for a soap this time. He said he would be excited to do a movie. 

Lately his affiliation comes from a much more artistic endeavor. He was commissioned by Sotheby’s, in New York, to create a soundtrack for an exhibition and private sale of works by important African-American artists, including Theaster Gates, Wangechi Mutu, David Hammons, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, at the auction house.

He commented about his experience saying that the art at Sotheby’s moved him like a song would. He said he saw music in those paintings. He said that he now tries to treat each single as a piece of art.

He tries to attach the sound that he's making to an image in his mind. The collaboration has earned him a very artistic cover on the W Art magazine with an accompanying interview.
