Hotline Bling (Cha Cha Remix)
Last week Drake debuted a mysterious new song at his barber's wedding. Today he premiered the song in full on his OVO Sound Radio show, and as some fans theorized it is indeed his remix of D.R.A.M.'s "Cha Cha" rechristened as "Hotline Bling." Boom.
Drake held his tongue in the wake of Meek Mill's ghostwriting accusations, but it was only matter of time before he responded to the noise. Today he shared a new song on OVO Sound Radio called "Charged Up" that features several jabs at ol Meek. "Done doing favors for people. Because it ain't like I need the money I make off of features," Drizzy raps. He also took some shots at Nicki Minaj, with whom he shared a sensual moment in her "Anaconda" video. "No woman ever had me star struck, or was able to me get my bars up.” He played the song four times in a row.
PartyNextDoor Feat. Travis Scott
After making a big splash in the inaugural episode of the OVO Sound Radio show, Drake, Oliver, and the OVO team keep the premieres going this week with PARTYNEXTDOOR's "No Feelings" feat. Travi$ Scott. The song aired on Noah “40” Shebib’s DJ portion of the show. The understated, brooding piano and big league drums definitely sound like a vintage Shebib production.
Where Ya At
Future Feat. Drake
We already knew Drake was a feature on Dirty Sprite 2, but with the tracklist arriving the other day, we found out that he is the -only- feature on the highly anticipated album. With the album dropping tomorrow, we've been blessed with the Drake-featured "Where Ya At" and it does not disappoint.
Ojuelegba (Remix) (CDQ)
WizKid Feat. Drake & Skepta
While Jay Z's cousin is still searching for talent in Nigeria, Drake and Skepta have jumped on the remix of one of the region's most promising young artists. Premiered on OVO Sound Radio last week, the official audio for the track has now been hosted on Skepta's SoundCloud.
Roy Wood$ Feat. Drake
Drake is determined to make the first episode of OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1 Radio a night to remember. After dropping his "Sweeterman" remix and his and Skepta's remix of Wizkid's “Ojuelegba” earlier in the show, Drizzy rolls out Roy Wood$' new song "Drama," to which he contributed a guest verse.
WizKid Feat. Drake & Skepta
Drake loves to put on for lesser-known artists. After dropping his remix of no-name Ramriddlz' "Sweeterman" on his "OVO Sound Radio" show today, he premiered his and Skepta's remix of Nigerian singer Wizkid's "Ojuelegba."
Majid Jordan Feat. Drake
Drake was generous with the Apple Music exclusives today. Along with debuting the bizarre yet hilarious video for "Energy" during his sit-down with Zane Lowe, the OVO rapper also released a new collaboration with Majid Jordan.
Meek Mill Feat. Drake
Meek Mill's Dreams Worth More Than Money dropped slightly ahead of schedule and with it came "R.I.C.O." featuring none other than Drake. It was probably a coin flip between this and "All Eyes On You" feat.
The Game Feat. Drake
The game has been hinting at a sequel to his debut album, The Documentary, for some time, and with the album celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, it's the perfect time to deliver on the promise.
Juicy J Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Drake
Thus far, Juicy J's kept the music from his upcoming album, THC: The Hustle Continues, under wraps, but today we catch a leak of one of the project's biggest tracks, approved by the Juiceman himself. "Tryna Fuck" features Juicy's Taylor Gang cohort Ty Dolla $ign, and more surprisingly, Drake. Listen below.
Can I (Remix)
Our friend D.R.A.M. got a huge look earlier this week when Beyoncé Instagrammed a video of herself dancing to his still-rising hit "Cha Cha," exposing it to the entire Beyhive. Today, D.R.A.M. keeps the Beyoncé connection going by remixing her recently-leaked track with Drake, "Can I."
Kehlani & Ambré Perkins
Last week, Kehlani shared the exciting news that she'd signed with Atlantic Records, and in addition, was getting her own Tsunami Mob imprint. Today, she cements her greatness with a new version of Drake and PARTYNEXTDOOR's "Preach," which she made with New Orleans native Ambré Perkins.
Fat Trel has been dropping close to a freestyle a day over the last week, going in over Nicki Minaj's "Truffle Butter," Beyonce's "7/11" and more. Today, he's taking on yet another popular instrumental with Drake's "Energy'. The minimal Boi-1da beat tends to be strong enough to make anyone sound halfway decent, so when a spitter like Trel gets on it, it turns into something special.
Nah, Forreal, EXACTLY (Freestyle)
Money Makin Nique Feat. Brucie B
Atlanta's Money Makin Nique is currently gearing up to release an EP entitled Bimmer Candidate, and before it drops, he's premiering a new freestyle with us. This one's over Drake's "10 Bands," and it's titled "Nah, Forreal, EXACTLY." On-board for the drop on the track is world-famous DJ Brucie B, who you might remember from the film "Paid In Full."
My Way (Remix)
Fetty Wap Feat. Drake
Yesterday word arrived that Drake was going to hop on Fetty Wap's "My Way," which following the success of his "Trap Queen" single, will probably be his next song to break. Not only that, but with the added star power of Drizzy, the "My Way" remix could very well be the song to soundtrack our summer.
Yesterday, Drake announced his that latest album (mixtape? does it matter?) If You're Reading This It's Too Late will be available in physical format on April 21. Luckily, the CD won't be an exact replica of what we've already heard, and Drizzy's also included two bonus cuts for our listening pleasure.
Over the past few days, Styles P's been blessing us with new freestyles over relatively recent tracks. Early this morning, we heard him take on BJ The Chicago Kid and Schoolboy Q's "It's True" (retitling it "True ghost") and now comes some fresh bars over Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late highlight "10 Bands."
Badd Lucc Feat. Problem
Big Sean's "Blessings" is something of an anthem, but it hasn't been embraced as a freestyle record the way it could have. Badd Lucc and Problem have made a case for why the record should be embraced by rappers to throw their best 16 on, but then again, it would be hard to top this take. Lucc starts things off acapella, before the beat gradually slinks its way in, and it's clear that he's been surgically locked into the pocket all along. Problem comes through later to riff on the hook, and drop some memorable punchlines.
Madonna (Unreleased 2nd Verse) (ChopNotSlop Remix)
Drake Feat. OG Ron C
OG Ron C, along with the late DJ Screw, is the originator of the chopped & screwed sound. He's as big a player in Houston hip-hop as any H-Town rapper. Ron C has slowed down and chopped up countless rap records, and if you're a fan of Houston rap, you've probably heard one of his famous ChopNotSlop remixes.
