Drake “6 God”/ “How Bout Now”/ “Heat Of The Moment”

Though, at this point, one should be used to new Drake tunes dropping at random and quickly dominating Trending Topic conversations, the recent onslaught of never-before-heard Drizzy music raised many questions. Were these new songs representing a between-project stand-alone EP, previewing some forthcoming new album or mixtape, or simply a gift to the fans in…

iLoveMakonnen featuring Drake “Tuesday”

As the latest in a long line of eccentric hip hop names representing the genre’s next generation, 25-year-old Atlanta-based iLoveMakonnen will likely draw as many side-eyes as he does genuine interest. Firstly, because of the stress of figuring out how to even say or spell his name correctly, but also because so much of his…

Drake “Draft Day”/ “Days In The East”

If it seems like every little thing that Drake says or does somehow manages to become a post-dominating event on social media outlets in record time, it’s because dude knows how to play the game of Internet so damn well. Case in point: his random decision to drop a brand new freestyle record on the…

Drake “Trophies”

With his Nothing Was The Same now swimming in all kinds of end-of-year list accolades, earning of best-of-2013 praise from various music crits across print and the World Wide Web, the self-proclaimed “light skinned Keith Sweat” has opted to cap off yet another successful calendar frame with the unleashing of “Trophies”, the much-talked-about Hit-Boy collab…

We Are Twin “Hold On, We’re Going Home (Drake Cover)”

As Drake’s purest pop moment to date, it was clear at about a minute into our initial listen of the rapper’s R&B crooner turn “Hold On, We’re Going Home” that the song was going to be everywhere this forthcoming autumn season. Not only in original form, where the song’s lush soundbed of rumbling keyboard shimmer,…

The Weeknd featuring Drake “Live For”

A shared love for the most broody, nocturnal-shaded beat atmospheres isn’t the only thing that makes The Weeknd and Drake meld so perfectly in sync as collaborators, on top of that, these dudes seem obsessed with making a life that would probably be the most exciting ever for most anyone else read woefully depressing. On…

Drake featuring Majid Jordan “Hold On, We’re Goin’ Home”

While the last Drake drop “All Me” found the rapper boringly resorting to the same ol’ same ol’, and us slinking back to a hesitant side-eye stance towards how the rest of Nothing Was The Same might fare, we’ve just as quickly been reined back into a level of “slightly more than mildly interested” in…

Drake “All Me (Moduloktopus ReTwerk)”

Coming after a pretty solid string of random freebies (“Girls Love Beyonce”, “The Motion”, an excellent remix upgrade to Migos’ otherwise obnoxious “Versace”) that each could have made for an strong official single, having Drake’s second official Nothing Was The Same release fall on “All Me” feels like a bit of an underwhelming move. It’s…

Drake featuring James Fauntleroy “Girls Love Beyonce”

With a heavy emphasis on sing-rap melodicism, a brow-raising interpolation of a familiar turn-of-the-century female R&B tune, more pensive moping about relationships with girls as a high-profile emcee, and…well, that title, Drake‘s latest drop “Girls Love Beyonce” is almost so Drake it’s laughable. Yet even as the self-leaked track spends its entire length edging into…
