Drake Releases Four New Songs Ahead of ‘More Life’ Project
In recent months, Drake has teased that he has new music on the way, and during Sunday’s (Oct. 23) OVO Sound radio show, the boy not only delivered on that promise but announced an upcoming project as well titled More Life. As he has done previously, the four new tracks represent a mixed bag of Drake recordings, what is most likely, one remix, one stand-alone and two potential project cuts.
That remix, which is included below, is to Dave’s “Wanna Know,” Drake making, as he does, veiled references to people and conflicts in his life. “I love to see a fake nigga go broke/I don’t run to Twitter with the things I know/I fall back to see how it unfolds,” he raps.
On “Two Birds, One Stone,” he’s a bit more straightforward with his call outs, asking at one point, “Free C5, how the fuck we got the boss waiting?” and later rapping, “You were the man on the moon/Now you just go through your phases/Life of the angry and famous.” He ends the song wondering, “Look what happens soon as you talk to me crazy/Is you crazy?” Many are wondering if he’s taking shots at Pusha T on the song, but few are unsure whether or not he’s aiming at Kid Cudi as well.
In September, Drake told a crowd in Tacoma, Wash., “I’m recording new music. I’m about like six, seven new songs in,” and appearing on iTunes following the radio show were “Sneakin'” featuring 21 Savage and “Fake Love,” each with the above More Life cover art, what appears to be Drake much older, resembling his dad with a few facial features.
There’s no word yet on when to expect More Life, though Drake called it a “playlist” on OVO Sound Radio, but with the Toronto MC going back on tour at the start of next year, it seems these are a sampling of what should come in the next few months. Curiously absent however is any Kanye West feature, the two reportedly working on a joint album together.
“Fake Love,” produced by Vinylz and Frank Dukes, and “Sneakin,” produced by London on Da Track, are available across all major digital streaming services, while you can hear the “Wanna Know” remix and “Two Birds One Stone” below. You can also hear the explicit version of “Two Birds One Stone” by listening OVO Sound Radio episode 32 right here.
