Drake’s Nothing Was the Same album sprung a leak last night. As one of the year’s most highly-anticipated albums, fans were quick to download it well before its official September 24 release date, but not without the usual, Drake-related humor. Many used the leak to lovingly poke fun at Drake and his very emotional music.
“If you don’t mix-and-match your exes to match the situations on #NWTS, you’re doing it wrong,” said fan Jordan Martins, a nod to cuts like “The Language” and “Come Thru.”
“RT this if you had to hide your phone since listening to #NothingWasTheSame so you wouldn’t call your ex” said Dre Traxxx, “Lock yourself in a room, get a box of tissues and block your ex’s number so you don’t call because Drake’s album leaked #NothingWasTheSame” said Eric Custadio, while Joe Santagato threw in, “Any tweet that’s even remotely emotional or any that has to do with relationships, I just assume that’s a line from Drake’s new album. #NWTS”

Blogger Karla Moy, who ran Drake’s original fan club years ago, shared “Cuffing Season starts tonight bruh. #nwts” because Drake’s music would want fans booed up before the cold, lonely fall nights.
Drake’s album leak gave fans an early listen to the Jay Z-featured single, “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2″ which came on the heels of “Wu-Tang Forever” leaking. Drake himself previewed the new cut “Too Much” with Sampha on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
