OVO Sound Radio
There’s a reason why Drake is the poster child of Apple Music - in fact there’s a ton of reasons. He’s the biggest commodity in the industry today, but what’s more is he’s fully buying into the Apple Music philosophy of being a platform for artists to build connections with their audience through music. If his enthusiastic interview with fellow Apple Beats Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe (available to listen to on Apple Music Connect) wasn’t enough to convince you of Drizzy’s capability to be the figurehead of this venture, then his debut episode of the collaborative OVO Sound Radio show should have silenced your doubts. Drake debuted new music from himself and other native Toronto emcees (keeping it with The 6, of course) while delivering dueling mixes from himself and OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib. One can only imagine that this show will be the place to look for Drake news and track releases from his upcoming Views from the 6 album moving forward. Drake’s show debuted on Saturday, July 11th at 6 PM. No official slot has been announced yet.
