Drake releases long-awaited More Life playlist project

Drake releases long-awaited More Life playlist project

"More Life" is anchored by "Fake Love", Drake's infectious hit about the phoniness of those around him.

Whether it's a "playlist", mixtape, loosely-defined project, or some new unforeseen form of music entirely, Drake's More Life is here. As mentioned, More Life is 22 songs, which features appearances from Young Thug, Kanye West, Quavo, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott and a big major placement for our favorite singer, Jorja Smith. And there are plenty of guest artists that might convince you to take a listen. But perhaps the difference between the poorly reviewed Views and More Life, which Twitter welcomed as a return to form for the rapper, has as much to do with its framing as with its songs.

Drake fans shifted their weekend plans from perusing Netflix to blasting his new music on repeat when the rapper and pop star dropped his newest project Saturday. The Latina songstress posted an Instagram photo cuddling Drake a few months ago, which fuelled rumours of a tryst in the studio. I just want to get right back to it.

Once we imagined a meeting of souls, now we're left with more Drake embarassing confessions.

He also samples her 1999 debut single "If You Had My Love" on "Teenage Forever". In the opening track "Free Smoke", Drake raps that he sends J-Lo messages while under the influence.

"I'm a bit concerned about this negative tone I'm hearing in your voice these days", she says. Just really excited. I had a great tour, I had a great summer.
