However listeners want to categorize More Life, its proof of quality isn't in its concept, it's in its songs, and these were the tracks that stood out.

More Life, packaged as a "playlist by October Firm" on Drake's Instagram earlier this week, not only features a photo of the rapper's father as the cover, but has an all-star-studded list of features.

The Canadian rapper is still young at the age of 30 and has women all over the world going insane for him, but the only one he wants right now is a mother of two who has a new man in her life. Drake never quite gets a handle on the South London slang he reaches for on the skittering, romantic "Blem", though "I need you to stop runnin' back to your ex, he's a wasteman" may be the best, Drakiest lyric on the whole project. United Kingdom rapper Giggs, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Sampha and the long awaited Kanye feature were my personal favorites.

Drake was tightlipped about collabs on More Life.

Frankly, it's refreshing: Drake's total emigration to dance music means we can leave behind the joyless, beleaguered Drake who took himself as seriously as Caligula. Unlike many of Drake's other slow songs, this one has a joyous feel to it and will inspire you to make a margarita and find a beach to lay on.

Each track on "More Life" flawlessly transitions into the next; However, Drake provides enough sonic switch-ups that no two songs sound alike throughout the playlist. Views was my album. "It was kinda getting tough to go, 'Hey, I'm dropping a mixtape, but it's for sale on iTunes, ' " he said in a Beats Radio interview with DJ Semtex. Later in the project, a chopped and screwed sample of the singer's classic 1999 hit "If You Had My Love" serves as the hook for "Teenage Fever".

"Glow" feat. Kanye West - Kanye?? 'Ye?? I'ma play this mothafucka for y'all. I can see now why this was the single.

"Skepta Interlude" "More Life" may be a playlist instead of an album, but it's relatively unheard of to feature two tracks on an album that don't even include the artist. Give it a listen if you haven't yet. They reminded us we are on this Earth for only a heartbeat; there is only loving and being loved.
