The song is said to be about 'empowering females ...... When they go out and they get dressed up and put their make-up on and get their hair done, they have the capacity to shut the club down.'

Drake won't release his full-length debut album "Thank Me Later" until next year, but he has had a new song selected as the set's first single. Titled "Shut It Down", the track which has The-Dream lending his vocal, is slated to come out in the coming weeks.

Omen, one of the album's producers, tells Billboard.com "We're filming a video for it soon helmed by Hype Williams. The track will be serviced just a few weeks after." As for The-Dream, he is said to have a verse and appear on the last two choruses and on the bridge.

Describing "Shut It Down" as a "Prince-like, powerful song," Omen explains it is actually about "empowering females." He goes on recalling, "Drake said he had a song idea called 'Shut It Down' aimed at club-going females. When they go out and they get dressed up and put their make-up on and get their hair done, they have the capacity to shut the club down."

"I was working on some drum patterns and 40 had the melody going. 40 is very skilled and has a crazy ear for obscure sounds and chords," says Omen when referring to Drake's longtime musical collaborator, 40. "It took us the whole night to come up with the track, but we finished it and played it for Drake the next day, who already had the song's concept."

In related news, "Thank Me Later" reportedly is scheduled for a February 2010 release.
