As the world probably knows by now, today — October 24th — marks Drake‘s 30th birthday. In celebration of, much of the world tuned in to OVO Sound Radio last night, which saw the Toronto artist gifting the world with some great news: he’ll be releasing a “playlist” project titled More Life, which will apparently be different from his usual releases. In addition, he also spoke on his forthcoming Boy Meets World tour:
I’m off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist. I want to give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life, so this More Life: The Playlist. Like I said, dropping in December. All original music from me. You might hear some tunes from the family on there. Just really excited. I had a great tour, I had a great summer. And most people would like go probably take a break, but for me I just want to get right back to it. Be with the people again. Boy Meets World Tour, coming up soon. UK, I’ll be there soon. Everybody—Paris, Amsterdam, Sweden, anywhere we are touching down. But yeah, I just want to celebrate life. More life.
That’s not all, either. Drake also decided to bless the world with a whopping four new tracks: “Two Birds, One Stone” (a track produced by Noah “40” Shebib which we’ll return to in a moment), “Fake Love” (produced by Vinylz & Frank Dukes), “Sneakin'” (produced by London On Da Track and featuring 21 Savage) and a remix of UK artist Santan Dave‘s “Wanna Know” (the original of which can be found on Dave’s Six Paths EP). The standout track would probably be “Two Birds”, thanks to direct shots at Pusha T and what sounds like a couple of jabs thrown in KiD CuDi’s direction:
You were the man on the moon
Now you just go through your phases…
Still never been on hiatus
You stay xanned and perked up
So when reality set in you don’t gotta face it…
Unsurprisingly, social media has responded somewhat negatively to the latter of the disses — currently, CuDi is seeking medical attention for depression and suicidal urges.
You can check out the tracks below. UPDATE: All tracks — except the Dave collaboration — are now available via iTunes/Apple Music.
