The self-described "playlist" was premiered on Drake's OVO Sound Radio show on Beats 1 earlier this evening.
The More Life, packaged as a "playlist by October Firm" on Drake's Instagram last week, not only features a photo of the rapper's father as the cover, but an all-star-studded list of features. And you can now see how true that is for yourself.
According to reps for Spotify, Drake's music has surpassed the 10 billion streams mark, making him the most popular artist on the entire platform. More life. I've still got vibrations to send. With More Life available on a range of services, topping that number in the first week shouldn't be too hard.
We guess we have to say project, because as much as it looks like an album to us, Drake is more insistent on it just being called a "playlist" of new songs. "Get It Together" (featuring Black Coffee and Jorja Smith) 6.
Drake said More Life was created to feel like an episode of OVOSOUND Radio. He hands over the whole woozy track to the singer's extremely capable falsetto, which lends 4422 an emotional heft rarely felt on the rest of More Life. "Sacrifices" (feat. 2 Chainz and Young Thug) 13.
It's his first new project in almost a year, since last April's Views. He resurrects a fast-paced flow that fans will relievedly recognize, delivering a mea culpa to his longtime followers, asking, "Did I lose you, did I?"
