With the help of Zane Lowe, Khaled just shared the first single off his upcoming album, Major Key. It's titled "F*ck Me For Free," or "for radio purposes, "For Free." The song is a loose, breezy party anthem from Drake and is produced by the OVO team of Nineteen85 and Jordan Ullman.
Drake Loves ESPN's Doris Burke And He Doesn't Care Who Knows It
Drake loves Doris Burke and he doesn't care who knows it. Given the chance, he would probably shout it from on top of a mountain.

Top Tracks: May 23 - May 29
Happy Memorial Day. The past week has been a wild one, what with the chaos at T.I.’s NYC show, Gucci Mane’s release from prison, and a new Kevin Gates tape. Summer’s officially here, so expect things to keep picking up in the rap game— we’ve got a ScHoolboy Q album, SremmLife 2, and a bunch of other heat on the way. On the top tracks side of things, there was quite a bit of turnover in our list this week, with only the bottom and top tracks from the last edition making return appearances.
Drake's Memorial Day Mansion Party Ends In Brawl
Drake took a break from luxuriating in his pile of VIEWS money to throw a Memorial Day rager Monday afternoon at his mansion in Hidden Hills, California.

Justin Bieber Has Remixed Drake's "One Dance"
That's right. As Drake's first-ever No. 1 single is currently wrapping up its second week at the top of the chart, the only other Canadian who can rival his stardom has come through with a soon-to-be-released remix.

Drake Trolled The Cleveland Cavs On Instagram Following Huge Game 4 Victory
After the Toronto Raptors picked up a must-win game over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, their global ambassador, more commonly known as Drake, took to instagram for some light ribbing of LeBron James. But when the Raptors went back to back to tie the series at 2-2 Drake went full troll, both during and after the game. It's like if Spike Lee had an instagram account during the Knicks' 1994 playoff battle with Reggie Miller and the Pacers, but more playful. A lot more playful. Like the puppy dog version of that.
Drake's Third-Week Streams Are Bigger Than Any Album's First-Week Numbers...In History
Earlier today, it was reported that Drake's "One Dance" reclaimed the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100.

The most recent albums chart -- for the week ending June 4 -- is set to be revealed tomorrow (May 23), and Drake will surely take No.

Top Tracks: May 16 - May 22
This past week, we were finally able to take a deep breath and reflect on all of the major projects we've heard in the past month -- A$AP Ferg, Bankroll Mafia, Beyoncé, Drake, Skepta, Rittz, Chance The Rapper, and Post Malone have all dropped full-lengths in that relatively brief timespan. It would appear that the summer's first burst of high-profile albums has subsided, but as we await projects from Travi$ Scott, YG, ScHoolboy Q, and others, at least guys like The Underachievers and Casey Veggies have given us something new to chew on.
Meek Mill Wins Top Rap Album At Billboard Music Awards, Drake Is Top Rap Artist
Another week, another award show. Tonight it was the 2016 Billboard Music Awards in Vegas, and of course, the majority of the nominations went to major artists who have spent a good deal of time in the Hot 100 singles chart and/or the Billboard 200 albums chart over the past year. Though a relatively small group of hip-hop artists were represented at this year's show, there were still a few surprise award-winners.

This Clip Of Kendrick Lamar Singing Drake's "Controlla" & Rihanna's "Work" Is Essential Viewing
Kendrick Lamar and Drake may have had their differences in the past (some of them likely imagined by fans), but it doesn't mean they can't enjoy one another's music.
