On the 39th episode of his “OVOSOUNDRADIO” show on Beats1, Drake gives fans his highly-anticipated ‘More Life’ “playlist,” as promised.
To ring in the 22-track “playlist,” Drizzy dropped “Free Smoke,” which he has teased along his “Boy Meets World Tour” in Europe. On “Free Smoke” the 6 God confesses to “almost giving up on the music thing,” drunk texting J. Lo, who he samples on the album, and more.
‘More Life’ was first announced in October and was delayed several times as a result of the “BMW Tour” in Europe. It includes contributions from Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, Quavo, Giggs, Young Thug, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and more.
The project follows the ‘Views’ album, although it is considered as the “evolution of a mixtape.”
“It was getting tough to be like, ‘I’m dropping a mixtape but it’s for sale on iTunes.’ It was like, ‘Oh, that’s your album.’ I didn’t want people to say this is my next album,” he said in an interview on a previous OVOSOUNDRADIO episode. “Views was my album. This is something that, after Views, I was just inspired. I wanted to keep the music flowing.”
