The sound doesn't feel forced and there's something for every type of hip-hop fan on the playlist. It's not an album, but a playlist: an opportunity to release music without the constraints or expectations of a traditional record, but with the business savvy to give it potential for the same impact. The album broke sales records and set a new trend for streaming in the new age of music.
After Drake told the actress and singer that he was not ready for a serious relationship Lopez completely flipped the script on him proving that she has more experience in handling big breakups.
Each track on "More Life" flawlessly transitions into the next; However, Drake provides enough sonic switch-ups that no two songs sound alike throughout the playlist. The collection of songs contains 22 tracks and is equal in length to Views. The new album is one of the more highly anticipated new albums of the year and you'll want to make sure you get your hands on it.
Originally announced in October previous year, the Hotline Bling hitmaker said More Life would be released at the end of February, however following months of delays and speculation, Drake finally revealed the official release date earlier this month. His aggression spiked in 2015 with the release of If You're Reading This It's Too Late and an explosive feud with Meek Mill that Drake clearly savored. Beyoncé started the "sneak release" and it has now become a gimmick that has been run into the ground more times than the Undertaker doing a Tombstone piledriver.

In addition to Drake's work with Black Coffee, he also titled uptempo-track, "Madiba Riddim" after South Africa's former president and anti-apartheid revolutionary, Nelson Mandela. Drake raps about his mom telling him to stop worrying about other people's opinions and having a more positive mindset. While More Life indulges in a lot of the same subject matter, it shows Drake working to return to form. But with five months of promotion behind it, More Life is unprecedented. Stylistically, however, More Life is incredibly impressive.
"More Life" sees Drake returning to frequent collaborators including Kanye West ("Glow"), PARTYNEXTDOOR ("Since Way Back") and Travis Scott ("Portland"), as well as some new faces such as British up-and-comers Giggs, Skepta and Sampha. "Do Not Disturb" is a featured outtro that perfectly reflects the playlist's nuances. In fact, it's the biggest, most ambitious, most global Drake album since 2011's Take Care, a grand tour of black music and culture in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, and the United Kingdom.
