Drake recently sat down with Ryan Seacrest and spoke about a possible collaboration with Beyonce, his admiration for Justin Timberlake and his new album Nothing Was The Same. The rapper focused on the single Started From The Bottom, which is often misinterpreted.

The Canadian native explained that there is a "common misconception that I didn't have to work to get here."

"Everybody's bottom is different," he explained. "For me the bottom was, I was coming off a children's TV show. I had no money left because we didn't get paid well. My mother was in debt. My whole family was stressed all trying to help each other out."

Aside from working on his own music, Drake recalled the moment he asked Beyonce to be involved in her upcoming album. 

"I reached out to her and asked if I could come and be a part of her project and she was kind enough to invite me out there," he said. "And we did some work together."

The rapper previously paid homage to the 32-year-old when he released Girls Love Beyonce in April. The track samples Destiny's Child 1999 hit Say My Name.

"I'm a Beyonce believer. I really believe strongly in her talent and her position in our generation," he also told Seacrest. "I think she's one of the biggest stars ever, but especially for these girls right now. I feel like they need Beyoncé."

The Canadian rapper also spoke about another one of his inspirations - Justin Timberlake.

"He is somebody that gives me the best advice in the world, that's very open about his experiences. [He] encourages me to act," he said. "Even on his album, he encouraged me. I think I had stopped rapping after like 16 bars and he was like 'nah, I want a Drake moment, keep going.'"

New Albums Coming This Fall

Drake collaborated with the singer on the song Cabaret which will appear on Timberlake's upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience Part 2.

Nothing Was The Same hit stores on Tuesday.
