Drake broadcasted his long-awaited "playlist project" over his Beats 1 OVO Sound radio show.
The playlist's lead single "Fake Love", released back in October, made it to the finalized "More Life" track-list, and still registers as a high point with its standout production and earworm-worthy hook. "More Life", Drake wrote of the "playlist project" on Apple Music. The new album is one of the more highly anticipated new albums of the year and you'll want to make sure you get your hands on it. In the course of the decade, Drake's solo albums have grown darker and increasingly paranoid; where his debut album, Thank Me Later, opened with fireworks (as heard on a song called "Fireworks"), his most recent, Views, opened with a villainous rant about the costs of disloyalty ("Keep the Family Close"). There are different moods and instead of being a straight jump, the interludes ease you onto the next part and let the listener know the vibe is about to change.
That's right, no exclusives this time: More Life is on every music streaming service, and it's also available for purchase on iTunes.
While Drake dishes on his fling with Jennifer Lopez in More Life, take a look at his wild romantic timeline between him and Rihanna in the video below.
For a fleeting, exquisite moment in December, we all thought Drake and J-Lo might be dating or at least collaborating. It's also, interestingly enough, following in the style of Chance the Rapper's mixtape style. Flawless driving song, gives off some LA vibes.
"I feel nearly alienated, or [like the Grammys are] trying to purposely alienate me by making me win rap awards or pacify me by handing me something and putting me in that category because it's the only place where you can figure out where to put me".
Blem: Nice lyrics, reminds me a little bit of "Controlla".
Kanye West also features on the project despite their reported feud. You can read a complete list of the production credits here. Why does it matter that they can't access "More Life" for 30 minutes when they're just going to play it on repeat once it finally does drop? But Glow features the same vintage-sounding iteration of both rappers, as Drake earnestly sings the track's refrain ("Watch out for me, I'm about to glow") in between Yeezy's straightforward verses over an Earth, Wind & Fire sample.
