What is Drake's More Life: a mixtape, an album or a playlist?

What is Drake's More Life: a mixtape, an album or a playlist?

The project debuted on OVO Sound Radio, but is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.

While many conventional artists share their new albums on Fridays, Drake made a decision to drop More Life on a Saturday.

Drake released a sprawling, 22-track album featuring major artists like Kanye West and Young Thug over the weekend titled More Life.

"More Life" is anchored by "Fake Love", Drake's infectious hit about the phoniness of those around him.

Drake's new album has set a record for the best first day on Spotify, edging out Ed Sheeran who held the title for a mere two weeks. But Glow features the same vintage-sounding iteration of both rappers, as Drake earnestly sings the track's refrain ("Watch out for me, I'm about to glow") in between Yeezy's straightforward verses over an Earth, Wind & Fire sample. Described by Drake as a "playlist to give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life", it was hard to know what to expect from the release. And as such, whenever he releases an album, fans act like it's a holiday.

This has lead fans to argue that "More Life" isn't technically an album in the traditional sense.

Drake is highly self-aware. Apparently, she has declined to update him with her new digits.

Skepta is just one of the British artists featured on Drake's "More Life".

Flip through the gallery above to hear all of the samples, interpolations, and excerpts blended into Drizzy's More Life. Drake goes further, conceding that while the album's success was "incredible", it "wasn't the one". I've done so much in my short time and still there's more to do. Unfortunately for Drake (and for Whodini, and for the New Boyz), the album is the format people are generally interested in-or perhaps more specifically, the format that people find most worthy of serious parsing, praise, and attention. He plays it off like he's not even trying- the term playlist implies something fleeting, as if Drake is just trying to get this hour-and-half of music off his mind.
