Drake’s new project More Life – playlist, mix tape or whatever the hell you want to call it – arrived earlier today for your streaming pleasure across Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal.
The release features 21 tracks and includes guest appearances from 2 Chainz, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jorja Smith and more. Later in the album, “Teenage Fever” samples her 1999 hit “If You Had My Love”.
Lopez has three new television projects lined up for this year.
A year after releasing his melancholy blockbuster Views, Drake has descended from his lonely throne atop the CN Tower with the resplendent More Life and a message: summer is coming. During the process of writing the song with Leven in his home studio – he has a studio in his backyard that’s why he wrote the garage thing. “More Life”, he wrote in part on an editor’s note to the project on Apple Music, according to Complex.
Just yesterday, OVO Sound producer Noah “40” Shebib hinted at making some last-minute More Life changes.
Drake said of the project, “It’s not an album but it is a body of work I’m creating, just to bridge the gap between my major releases, to keep people excited”. I wanted to do something fun with it so it’s not exactly like my own version because mine is a ballad. “They smile in my face / Whole time they wanna take my place”, he raps on “Fake Love”. It’s so insane that my song “Time” is about me not having enough time with my dad.
What was your initial reaction to “Do Not Disturb”? It was immediately a dope response. We’ve never really officially met. I know you can reach your desired destination and accomplish your goals much more quickly without this confrontation I’m hearing in your tone these days. Boi-1da has been keeping me in the loop.
Drake may be an global pop star able to sell albums at will, but often his best work appears outside of official avenues on mixtapes, one-offs and collaborations. Super fun to hear it as the outro.
It’s actually inspired by the loss of my father.
The song is about my dad – I lost him in 2009.
“I’m off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist”.
