Drake Feat. Lil Wayne
Tonight's OVO Sound Radio episode shaped up nicely. After YG debuted his new single "Why You Always Hatin?" feat. Drake and Kamaiyah, host Oliver El-Khatib unleashed a new remix of VIEWS banger "Hype" featuring Drake's old Young Moolah partner-in-crime Lil Wayne.
Why You Always Hatin?
YG Feat. Drake & Kamaiyah
YG's announcement that he would be premiering a single on OVO Sound Radio sparked speculation that Drake appear on the song, as he did on "Who Do You Love" from YG's debut My Krazy Life. This speculation proved to be accurate; Drake indeed spits a verse on "Why You Always Hatin?", premiered by Oliver El-Khatib Saturday evening.
Ghost No Ways
New York emcee Styles P keeps things prolific, constantly picking out current beats to body. Early today he dropped off two new tracks. “Ghost No Ways” has Styles P going in over the beat to Drake’s track “Feel No Ways,” off his album Views.
Drake's best project ever is arguably the one that catapulted him to stardom: his third mixtape, 2009's So Far Gone. It is a project the cuts to the heart of Drake's ambition. On "Houstatlantavegas," he projects his aspirations on a stripper who feels trapped within her profession.
Pop Style (New Verse)
The most exciting moment of tonight's episode of OVO Sound Radio came before any music was played, as Drake began the show by announcing the release date of Views from the 6.
Well isn’t this a coincidence.
Drake Feat. WizKid & Kyla
Drizzy released two songs this morning on iTunes -- "Pop Style," featuring the heavy-hitting duo of Jay Z and Kanye West (THE THRONE), and "One Dance" featuring the lesser known duo of WizKid and Kyla.
Drake Feat. Jay Z & Kanye West
We know y’all have been clamoring for these new Drake tracks all day, and we’ve finally got a stream (subject to takedown, as usual). Drake goes as big as possible for the features on “Pop Style,” cleverly hidden as ‘The Throne’ – Kanye West and Jay Z.
Drake Feat. Pimp C
Two Drake songs leaked earlier this week to mixed reviews. Fans breathed a gigantic sigh of relief when they learned that "These Days" would not be included on Views From the 6. Perhaps they'll be more receptive of the latest Drizzy leak: "Faithful" feat. Pimp C.
Things I Forgot To Do
Babeo Baggins Feat. Drake
Two new Drake songs surfaced online overnight, one of which was an unexpected cover of Nico's 1967 "These Days". The song is currently sitting at a 43% user rating, and people are panicking that the song will be on VFT6. Worry not, citizens. That leak is actually an unmastered portion of a collaboration between Drizzy and little-known singer Babeo Baggins called "Things I Forgot To Do".
Drake Feat. Popcaan
Two new Drake tracks leaked this morning. “Controlla” feat. Popcaan joins “These Days” as the first two songs we’re hearing from the upcoming Views From The Six. While the other track is a dreamy pop song, “Controlla” is a downtempo Caribbean jam. Drake uses a very subtle amount of Auto-Tune as he sings for a girl that continues to play games, almost controlling him.
A new era of Drake is upon us. While Drake has shied away from releasing any big singles ahead of his album (unless you count “Summer Sixteen”), the April release of Views From The Six is quickly approaching. We get early versions of two songs which may or may not be on the album, including “These Days.”
Sweeterman (Remix) (CDQ)
Drake first played his remix of Ramriddlz' "Sweeterman" on the premiere episode of OVO Radio, but somehow, we never received the CDQ version of the single. Today, that arrives, perfectly lining up with the beginning of spring. It's unclear if the record making it's way out means that it could still be pushed as an official single, but either way we're happy to have it.
Come And See Me
PartyNextDoor Feat. Drake
Last night, on the final night of SXSW, the entire OVO label made a surprise appearance at the Fader Fort, but there was even more in store after the party. In the wee hours of the AM, PartyNextDoor decided to drop off his new single, "Come and See Me," the first track off his next album, the title of which he has revealed to be P3. The song features Drake and is produced by Noah "40" Shebib.
My Love (Remix)
Majid Jordan Feat. Drake
Well here’s a nice unexpected treat. Fresh off the release of their self-titled debut album, OVO’s Majid Jordan decide to come through and share a new remix of their hit record “My Love” featuring Drake. Leaving the lyrics & chorus the same, the Toronto production duo beef up the production, adding a more uptempo, dance ready vibe for the clubs. Take a listen and let us know how it compares to the original?
Summer Sixteen (Remix)
Joell Ortiz is currently putting the finishing touches on a new project at the moment called That’s Hip Hop, which will drop on March 15th and feature the likes of M.O.P, Tony Touch, Chris Rivers, & Kool G Rap.
Yup, Drake did it again tonight on episode 14 of OVO Sound Radio. Late into his set, after a Nas remix of Future's "March Madness," Drake finally dropped his new single, "Summer Sixteen." And he proceeded to play it 6 times in a row, in honor of his upcoming album Views from the 6.
Wu-Tang Forever (Remix) (CDQ)
Drake Feat. A$AP Rocky
Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever" remix was, at one point, supposed to feature a few members of the Wu-Tang Clan. Unfortunately, that never came together, and while all hope seemed to be lost for the track, a version of the song with a new verse from ASAP Rocky appeared on OVO Sound radio last week. While it wasn't Wu, Rocky was a great fit for the track, representing New York, and bringing out some technical bars for the occasion. The track one of three songs from ASAP today, all CDQ versions of songs released on OVO earlier in the month. Which one is your favorite so far?
Rihanna Feat. Drake
Rihanna recently hinted that her long-awaited 8th studio album, ANTI, was complete, and she's delivered on the promise of new music with a monster single today, teaming up with Drake for "Work".
J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League Feat. Rick Ross & Drake
This morning, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League released a new-13 track album called J.U.S.T.I.C.E. For All. The features are unreal -- Lupe Fiasco, Future, Chris Brown, & T.I., to name a few and the the leadoff track "Empire," which features Rick Ross and Drake, is no exception.
