Drake: "I'd Rather Do Soulful Music Than Dance Music"

Despite the fact that elements of dance music are emerging in every type of music genre these days, Drake has decided to stay true to what got him to where he is now.  Even though he may like hitting up the club and hitting the dance floor with a beautiful woman by his side, Drake isn't willing to switch his style to more upbeat club popping tracks.  

Instead, he feels as though the music he produces for his millions of fans should come from his soul and he doesn't need to switch to making dance music just to get more fans.  He won't be producing David Guetta or Pitbull types of upbeat songs anytime soon.  He'll leave that type of music to those who are good at making upbeat songs. 

Here's what Drake had to say about his musical style:

"For me, the David Guetta stuff just doesn't work.  I don't really wanna go there. There's other artists, that's their sound.  They feel in order to thrive internationally that they gotta do straightforward, four on the floor, David Guetta, Pitbull music.  For me, I'd rather go to somebody like Jamie XX and tell him, 'Look, I really wanna turn the club upside down, but I wanna do it with integrity, with soul.'"
