A lot is going on with Drake’s “More Life” playlist. Not only does Drake dish about his relationship with J-Lo, but he takes a few shots at Meek Mill. Also, it turns out that Drake may be taking a break from making music. But not to worry, More Life has plenty of hits to get you through the entire summer. If you want to hear some juicy details about Drake’s latest playlist, then here are 15 things about More Life that you should know.
1. He spills the beans about his relationship with J-Lo
Apparently, Drake is still hung up on J-Lo. During his Free Smoke track, he raps the following lyrics,
I drunk text J-Lo / Old number, so it bounce back.
Also, he hints that it’s been a dream of his to date her in his track Teenage Fever, which samples her single If You Had My Love.
2. Drake is a fan of Sampha
Although he doesn’t credit him in the title like most tracks, 4422 features the wonderful vocals of Sampha. It’s safe to say Drake is a fan of his, considering this is their third collaboration together.
3. It’s a playlist, not an album
You may think More Life is an album or mixtape, but it’s actually a playlist. It does look like an album, though. But Drake swears it’s not.
4. He’s still dissing Meek Mill
That’s right; Drake isn’t done with Meek Mill quite yet. And he makes this very clear in Free Smoke,
How you let the kid fightin’ ghost-writin’ rumors turn you to a ghost?
5. Drake is obsessed with UK rappers
Not only does More Life feature Giggs, but also Skepta and, a few other subgenre artists.
6. Stevie Wonder makes a comeback with his 2011 Doing it wrong harmonica solo in Jorja Interlude
7.He still loves that island music
Not sure if he’s amped for summer or if he wishes he was on some tropical island. Nevertheless, there’s plenty of island music present in More Life.
8. Drake likes trap music, too
Travis Scott, Quavo, Young Thug, and 2 Chainz all appear on Drake’s latest playlist.
9. Kanye West joins Drake in Glow
Despite their ongoing feud, it seems maybe the two sorted things out, after all.
10. The voicemails are back
If you follow Drake’s music, then you know he’s been using voicemails in his songs for some time now. One song from the playlist includes a voicemail from Drake’s mom, who apparently is a fan of Michelle Obama’s.
11. He’s a little upset about Serena William’s recent engagement
At least it seems that way in Nothings Into Somethings,
Did I just read that you just got engaged on me? / I heard from your friend, you couldn’t even tell me / Or better yet, wait on me… At least do I get an invitation or something / A statement or something / Ask about that, you would say it was nothing.
12. Drake still has his eye on Nicki Minaj
During Ice Melts, Drake makes it blatantly obvious that he still wants Nicki Minaj,
Look, I want you to myself / But I know you just left someone else / I know you did, he did a number on you / That must be why you move so icy.
13. Kendall Jenner is the only one he calls out by name
Drake refers to a few women in More Life without throwing out their names. Kendall Jenner, however, is an exception in this playlist.
14. You may not hear from Drake until 2018
It’s not confirmed, but Do Not Disturb makes it safe to assume that Drizzy is taking a break from music,
Taking summer off cause they tell me I need recovery / Maybe gettin’ back to my regular life will humble me / I’ll be back in 2018 to give you the summary.
15. More Life will keep you satisfied all summer long
So make sure you check it out.
