Drizzy is back. Originally scheduled to drop the night of the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, Drake’s highly anticipated new single “Started From The Bottom,” was released earlier this evening through his Octobers Very Own blog. 

I guess Drake couldn’t wait until this Sunday to unveil the track to his fans…but hey, we’re not complaining!

“Started From The Bottom” was produced by OVO’s latest signee Mike Zombie, and was confirmed by Drizzy to be the first single from his upcoming album–which has yet to be titled.

Along with the track, Drake wrote a letter to his fans…which you can find below:

My good friends,

It has truly been too long. I assume you’re all keeping well and making the most of this year that has been given to us. Today is the day to begin sharing my newest work with you.This is the first single off of my upcoming album.

I feel sometimes that people don’t have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn’t consistent with actual events. My family and my second family (consisting of the best friends anybody could ever have) all struggled and worked extremely hard to make all this happen.

I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and I’m excited for this song to find a place in your life as well.

I didn’t feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song. It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me.

Judging by this post, the tour that we’ve been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artwork…I think it’s safe to say we’re back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
