Here, Drake returns to complaining about the famous-people problems he spent much of Views questioning.
Drake has finally released his highly anticipated playlist project More Life.
As if he’s appearing to dictate another year of music, Drake returned on Saturday night with a stunning new 22 songs. And as such, whenever he releases an album, fans act like it’s a holiday.
For a star who’s voiced vexation over being framed exclusively as a hip-hop/rap artist, it makes sense that he’d deliver something like “More Life”, as stylistically expansive as anything he’s ever done. It also achieved double platinum status in the U.S. and earned over 1 million album equivalents in the first week of its release.
The project made its worldwide debut on his radio show on Beats 1.
Stream and download Drake’s playlist project above. For now, here’s everything we know about More Life so far.
“Madiba Riddim” After dominating the charts with tropical productions on “Hotline Bling” and “One Dance”, Drake moves the party to 2017 and struggles with fake friends on another vibrant house tune.
HOW DID HE PICK THOSE SAMPLES?: Drake spares no expense in showcasing his eclectic taste for memorable songs.
“4422” Clocking in at over 3 minutes, this sullen ode to a breakup feels like an interlude that carries on about two minutes longer than necessary and features no actual contribution from Drake himself.
More Life offers little solace for those who never bought what the Canadian rapper was selling but for his fans that gave his songs billions of streams past year, they’ll hear no issue.
Fans quickly took to Twitter sharing their thoughts on Drake’s latest work.
Drake’s More Life has more contributing artists than any other Drake project in history.
Passionfruit: My personal favorite, screams summer.
Drake rhymes, “I could never have a kid, then be out here still kidding around/Boys playing around, where you really wanna take it now?” Oddly enough sounds like the music that is always playing at H&M?
Blem: Nice lyrics, reminds me a little bit of “Controlla”. “Teenage Fever” 15. “KMT” (featuring Giggs) 16. You can read them right here. I’ma play this mothaf***a for y’all. I can see now why this was the single. ‘More Life’s final unveiling follows months of delays, speculations and, finally, an Instagram tease last week. Give it a listen if you haven’t yet. 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.
