Drake Takes More Shots at Meek Mill on More Life

Drake Takes More Shots at Meek Mill on More Life

By calling "More Life" a playlist instead, he's promising a lighter-weight experience, one not necessarily created to clarify What Drake Thinks. This release strategy allowed Drake to be more experimental with the work.

A large chunk of those streams - about 20 per cent, according to Forbes, are from his most recent album Views, which is less than a year old. Instead, Drake is calling it a playlist. But for his fans, this could actually pose a problem, particularly for rap fans who may not be as drawn to his pop sound as the rest of the world.

Although this album's intentions were to be an in-between release before his next album, Drake is victorious with "More Life". It's not something that I'm proud of because it took just as much of an emotional toll on me.

With tracks like Blem, however, his impressions are a little more grating.

Trey Songz kept the energy flowing, before the crowd erupted for a surprise slot from Nicki Minaj - who said she was "so fucking proud" of the rapper for "changing the game" with "More Life".

"People are going to love his version of the song but it won't erase the original", Black told East Coast Radio about "Get It Together".

Drake Finally Got His 'Life' Together
Discussing the idea for More Life late previous year , he said, "I'm off, like, mixtapes, I want to do a playlist". He told his fans that he was six or seven songs into his next project and added he was in the studio every night.

The couplet effectively encapsulates the majority of More Life: a recycled cliché that's growing more and more hard to believe with each iteration. Drake takes the tone of someone struggling through the problems of fame and relationships and expects us to feel bad for the perils and cheer for his well-deserved success. He pulls out his inner Kanye West by asking the featured artists to perform to his standard, which they all accomplish.

At over one hour long, you would think "More Life" would get boring, but for a playlist, it's surprisingly cohesive.

The features on this album often overshadowed Drake's quality of music, but it is learned and accepted because of the context of the album being a playlist, as he describes it. The song is worth revisiting for both of their performances and gives some life to the playlist's subdued and often moody production.

Expect to hear "More Life" all summer and see everyone using lyrics as Instagram captions. That's a reference to the Views song "Grammys", where he first boasted that he was "top five, no debating".

Drake also admits he would like to be remembered as an "emotion-evoking artist". Stylistically, however, More Life is incredibly impressive.
