Young Money Entertainment‘s Drake is gearing up to drop his third album on September 24th, and we have your first look at the new cover art for his Nothing Was the Same album.
It’s a diptych, featuring one bright, crisply rendered profile of Drake as a youngster facing another of the artist as an adult, each head positioned against a blue, cloud-dotted sky.
If the image’s hyper-realism looks familiar, well it’s probably because the Washington-born Nelson has been an almost ubiquitous art-world presence for the past 15-plus years. It’s Nelson who did the striking cover art forMichael, the King of Pop’s posthumous 2010 release; and whose imaginative power has been tapped by clients as varied as the U.S. Postal Service, Coca-Cola, Scholastic Books and, in the mid-nineties, TV’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. – GlobalGrind
