Unlike his album "Views" previous year, Drake released "More Life" immediately on all streaming platforms rather than giving an initial exclusive to Apple Music, with which he has a close relationship. The new album is one of the more highly anticipated new albums of the year and you'll want to make sure you get your hands on it.

The track is built off a stripped-down beat reminiscent of dancehall, the energetic popular music of Jamaica. And why wouldn't it, if his mixtape is surveying his musical headspace of the moment? And it's anchored by Fake Love, one of three songs from the project released last fall and already a certified hit: Just last week it had 16,600 download sales and eight million on-demand streams, according to Nielsen Music.

The newest innovation on More Life marks a culmination of Drake's interest in grime, with features from Skepta and Giggs in addition to Drizzy's own roadman slang. The new album comes as being first celebrated on the OVO Sound Radio Show alongside OVO founder Oliver El-Khatib. Drake randomly features South African producer and DJ, Black Coffee, and fellow Canadian, PartyNextDoor.

Another thing to note about More Life is it isn't leaning more towards any genre. But with five months of promotion behind it, More Life is unprecedented. And there are plenty of guest artists that might convince you to take a listen. 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. In that opening track, he endearingly admits "I still drunk text J.Lo", a reference to his brief romance with Jennifer Lopez. He has earned a reputation for amplifying other musicians through remixing, ghostwriting, and sampling, but "More Life" is the most pronounced extension of that tendency to date. She also has a residency in Las Vegas to take care of, so Drake's new music will probably not be getting a warm reception on her end. "Lose You" 17. "Can't Have Everything" 18.

A lot has changed for Kanye and Drake since they teamed up in 2009 for the one-off single Forever.
