14 Samples Heard On Drake's 'More Life — Know Your Sounds

In 2016, Drake's celebrated rap album Views became one of the first music projects to debut exclusively on Apple Music-and unleashed a flurry of agitation over exclusive deals in the music business. That's as old school as the project goes, though, as there's actually no physical copy of the album to be had. Production wise, Drizzy leaned on the usual suspects, including 40, Frank Dukes, Boi-1da, Murda Beatz, T-Minus, Nineteen85 and more.

"I'm off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist".

More Life won't share the exclusivity-generated hype of Views, but it also stands a much bigger chance of being heard. Like I said, dropping in December. All original music from me.

On the final track he lays out his plan saying, "Take the summer off 'cause they tell me I need recovery". More life. I've still got vibrations to send. "Be with the people again". However, "Two Birds, One Stone" and "Sneakin", the latter featuring Atlanta rapper 21 Savage, have not appeared on the final track-list.

With the first day of Spring right around the corner, Drake officially released More Life into the digital streets and onto streaming services everywhere.

Drake shared some previews of new songs during his Boy Meets World Tour.

Giggs, Moodymann and Young Thug also among the featured artists. 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. "Madiba Riddim" 7. "Blem" 8. "4422" 9. "Gyalchester" 10. "Gyalchester" 10. "Skepta Interlude" 11. "Can't Have Everything" 18. "Glow" (featuring Kanye West) 19.
