Piano by Chilly Gonzales

from Drake – Nothing Was The Same [Credits] Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

One of Noah “40” Shebib go-to pianist, his piano keys have been heard on Drake’s “Marvin’s Room” and “Good Ones Go”. Chilly spoke to VIBE about the song:

The song started at my home in Toronto, well, the piano part did. I had a couple sessions with 40 and Drake. Last September, so we did a very long, epic session, which basically involves… 40 is basically making beats live and sort of keeping his eye on the keyboard sounds that I’m playing. He’s kind of in charge of feeling whether Drake is comfortable in what we’re doing or if we need to keep searching until we find something. No one really says anything actually. It’s all very instinctive and it really lasts hours. You just have to read people’s facial expressions and read the vibes. Once in a while, 40 just changes the tempo or changes the synthesizer sound and it’s like alright “blank slate,” so let’s keep searching.

Gonzales was also “sampled” for the outro of so far gone. In other words, they just put a song from his Solo Piano record at the end of the mixtape.
