Drake - Drake unveils 'Started from the Bottom'

Drake has surprise released a new single, 'Started from the Bottom'.

The track will serve as the Canadian rapper's first cut from his upcoming third album - due for release later this year - and the biographical song chronicles his rags-to-riches story in the music industry.

Unveiling the song on his official blog, Drake wrote: ''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.

''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.''

The 'Take Care' star explained he released the track via his website because he didn't need ''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.''

The 25-year-old rapper also offered an update on the progress of his currently untitled third album and hinted a tour is also in the works.

He wrote: ''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.''

Drake's two albums, 2011's 'Take Care' and 2010 debut, 'Thank Me Later', both topped the US album chart.
