Drake is back with more chune for your head top. The 6 God took over the OVOSOUND Radio airwaves on Saturday (March 18) to debut the long-awaited More Life.
The 22-track project, which was first announced in October, arrives in the form of a playlist curated by October Firm, comprised of Drake and his manager Oliver El-Khatib. The guest list includes Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, Quavo, Young Thug, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Giggs, Skepta, Sampha, and more. While Jennifer Lopez does not appear, Drake samples his rumored ex’s On the 6 single “If You Had My Love” on “Teenage Fever.”
According to Drizzy, More Life was designed to feel like an episode of OVOSOUND Radio. “The style in which it’s being put together is based off of our concept that is OVOSOUND Radio,” he explained. “I love the way it’s put together. It’s really put together as a seamless listen. Basically, what I asked myself was, ‘What would happen if I just did an OVOSOUND Radio but every song was a new Drake song?’ That was kind of my idea for it.'”

More Life follows Views, but Drake does not consider it an album, describing it simply as an “evolution of the 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. “Views was my album. This is something that, after Views, I was just inspired. I wanted to keep the music flowing.”
The wait is finally over. More Life is now available on all digital platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, and TIDAL.
