Drake releases long-awaited More Life playlist project

Drake releases long-awaited More Life playlist project

Drake is now premiering More Life on his OVO Sound Beats 1 radio show, and already it's got references to Jennifer Lopez and Jay Z. Titled More Life, the 22 tracks were premiered on Drake's Beats 1 show, OVO Sound Radio, on Saturday without warning. It features appearances from Kanye West, Quavo, Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Giggs, Young Thug, PARTYNEXTDOOR and more.

The wait for new music from hip-hop star Drake is finally over, as his new album, errr, "playlist"/"project" as he prefers to call it, has finally been released. All original music from me.

"This project is a celebration of the fact that we're still going", he said of the album, which is nice and all, but the real meaty lyrical matter concerns Drake's former squeeze Jennifer Lopez.

Here are five other questions to ponder while reflecting on the meaning of More Life.

There's also the mystery of the song "Get it Together".

On the final track he lays out his plan saying, "Take the summer off 'cause they tell me I need recovery".

There's a second pseudo-cameo: More Life's "Teenage Fever" samples the J-Lo classic, "If you had my love", leading the internet to speculate about just what Drake was up to.

Here, Drake returns to complaining about the famous-people problems he spent much of Views questioning. His popularity is especially strong on streaming services, with his "One Dance" the only track to have been played more than one billion times on Spotify.

Listen to "Free Smoke" below!
