Drake Releases His 'More Life' Album

Share

Despite its extensive track list, it isn't anything like a Drake album or mixtape, it's a collection of tracks that follow the same themes that Drake has established, without telling a full story.

But what does that mean, with its appearance across multiple streaming platforms, and the inclusion of chart-toppers like "Fake Love"?

As if he's appearing to dictate another year of music, Drake returned on Saturday night with a stunning new 22 songs.

There are some standard-issue Drizzy tracks in the mix. On the playlist's first song, "Free Smoke", he references his 2015 feud with Meek Mill by asking: "How you let the kid fighting ghostwriting rumors turn you into a ghost?" The thing about Drake is every album has at least one cheesy R&B song.

More Life references the Toronto native's family, as a photo of the rapper's father adorns the cover of the playlist. On it, Drake's smooth vocals are carefully layered beneath light keys and a chilly, tropical beat.

Once we imagined a meeting of souls, now we're left with more Drake embarassing confessions. Better still, the message kicked off the playlist, acting as a kind of blessing for all of us to hopefully enjoy listening to More Life. But here, with an album that's nearly shameless heart emojis-highlighted by "Passionfruit", the previously-released "Lose You", and "Glow" with Kanye West-Drake doubles-down. Drake randomly features South African producer and DJ, Black Coffee, and fellow Canadian, PartyNextDoor. Drake takes advantage of the newest trap wave, including Quavo, Travis Scott, Young Thug, and 2Chainz. With a feature from British rapper Giggs, the MC steals the show with his second verse. And you can now see how true that is for yourself.

Will you be buying Drake's new album "More Life" on Amazon or stream on Amazon Music Unlimited? "There's real ones around me", he raps on the slick closer, "Do Not Disturb".

"I'm off, like, mixtapes, I want to do a playlist".

Whether or not Drake stole the sound from XXXTentacion's "Look At Me" is another story, but "KMT" is one of "More Life's" standout tracks.
