A new song by Drake featuring The-Dream is leaked. Titled "Shut It Down", the piece is produced by Noah "40" Shebib and Omen who also co-produced Alicia Keys' duet track with Drake, "Un-thinkable (I'm Ready)".
The slow-jam song is reportedly not the final version but has been confirmed to be listed in the Canadian rapper's debut album "Thank Me Later". Other songs which are definite track of the May release are the first single "Over", "Fireworks", "Afrika Boombatta" and "Light Up". The latest one is featuring Jay-Z.
Drake said that this first full-length album by him is inspired by Nas and OutKast's Andre Benjamin. "Nas was somebody that I used to listen to his raps and never understood how he did it," he previously told MTV. "I always wanted to understand how he painted those pictures and his bar structure. I went back and really studied Nas and Andre 3000 and then came back with this album."
