Drake Announces New Project ‘More Life’ & Releases NEW MUSIC
'More Life' is coming this December!
Drake has announced a new project, called More Life, that will come out at the end of the year. December cannot come soon enough.
Can’t wait that long for new music? Don’t worry; Aubrey Graham has got your back. Drake has released a batch of tracks from More Life, and you can listen to ‘Two Birds One Stone’, ‘Sneakin'’ featuring 21 Savage, and ‘Fake Love,’ plus a new remix of 17-year-old UK rapper Santan Dave's song 'Wanna Know,' below.
Speaking on last night’s episode of OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1, the Canadian rapper announced that More Life would be a “playlist” project that will feature new music from himself and other OVO members. Drake explained on-air that his goal is to “provide a soundtrack to your life.”
Just how much of our lives Drake will soundtrack is currently unclear. Will Drake soundtrack how utterly miserable episode 3 of the new series of Black Mirror made me feel? Will Drake soundtrack the nuclear apocalypse that surely awaits us after Donald Trump becomes president on November 8? Will Drake soundtrack my breakfast? If society as we know it is still standing come December, we'll find out.
2016 has been good to Aubrey Graham, AKA Drake. He released Views, his fourth studio album, which went on to become Drake's sixth consecutive number-one album (fifth as solo artist). Furthermore, ‘One Dance’, a single from Views, was announced as Spotify’s most streamed song ever last week. Everything is coming up Drake. To summarise: people really like Drake, including those of us who are dragging our knuckles across keyboards for MTV.
Skepta has expressed how excited he is about More Life. Posting on Instagram, Skepta said: "Greatness never sleeps.#MoreLife family @champagnepapihappy Earth day. Love 🌍" Could Skepta feature on the forthcoming "playlist project"?
In other news, it's Drake's birthday today! In honour of Aubrey's 30th birthday, we've put together a 'Where's Wally?' style game, the aptly titled Find Drake. Find that below. Want more? We've got more - check out these motivational posters we made out of Drake's lyrics here.
Also, Drake will bring his 'The Boy Meets World' tour to Europe in early 2017. Full dates for the tour can be found here.
