Drake Drops Two New Singles “One Dance” and “Pop Style” Featuring Jay Z and Kanye West
#Views season is upon us as Drake shook up the landscape again by dropping two new tracks that are likely to be on his upcoming Views From the 6 album. The superstar MC blessed his diehard fans with two radically different songs to kick off the campaign for his new project. "One Dance" sounds like it will ring out in Dancehalls while "Pop Style" cements his spot in hip-hop's elite as Hov and 'Ye join the rapper over a haunting instrumental.
On "One Dance," Drizzy enlists Nigerian singer and songwriter Wizkid and Filipino artist Kyla. Back on his singing shit, Drake pleads for just one dance with a woman and shows his softer side while Wizkid and Kyla provide additional vocals. The song is produced by Sevn Thomas and Frank Dukes with additional production by Boi-1da and 40. You can find the original sample for the song, a Crazy Cousinz remix of a Kyla track, below.
"Pop Style" is full of quotables that will be landing on Instagram captions and Twitter updates in the foreseeable future. While Jay makes a brief appearance, Kanye steals the show. Still on his extended ego trip, Yeezy shows no signs of letting up with bars like "Why can't you just shut your mouth and take the high road?/Fuck if I know/That's that Chicago." Nineteen85 did the track with co-production from 40 and Wizkid.
Both songs were released under the Cash Money Records umbrella which likely means that Views From the 6 will drop via the imprint. After If You're Reading This It's Too Late dropped in Feb. 2015, rumors spread that there were plans to release the project as a free "Gangsta Grillz" mixtape with DJ Drama, but Universal and Cash Money stepped in and made the album for sale. At the time, Lil Wayne was in a very public, very heated battle with Birdman to get off the label and there was speculation that the 6 God was also trying to leave. There was also speculation that If You're Reading This It's Too Late was his last contractually obligated album with the powerhouse label.
If the singles are any indication, all is good between Drake and the label. Expect Views From the 6 anytime now.
