Drake recently sat down with CBC Radio’s Jian Ghomeshi for an extensive, hour-long interview about numerous different things. Drizzy speaks on what he wants to achieve with his music, what kind of legacy he hopes to leave behind and much more.
Here is some pretty shocking and unfortunate news – Drake and Future are reportedly in a $1.5 million feud over Drake’s forthcoming tour, titled Would You Like A Tour. The original lineup consisted of Drake, Future and Miguel but now it appears that somebody else will be taking Future’s spot – possibly Jhené Aiko, who hinted at it on Instagram.
This report comes shortly after an interview that Future had with Billboard, where he said: “Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do.” According to Future and his managers, the text was misworded, but it doesn’t look like Drake is buying it.
We’ll keep you updated when new details emerge.
UPDATE: Apparently Future has been added back to the tour, as Drake and Future settled their differences last night. This news comes from Hot 107.9, who also reported that the paperwork has been signed for the tour.
Two of the biggest singles of the year are selling just as we’d expect, especially when they were crafted by two of Hip-Hop’s hottest artists in the game right now – Drake and Eminem. Read more
Drake continues to dominate the charts, as his third studio album Nothing Was The Same has become the third straight number one album of his to debut at the top of the Billboard charts. The album sold 658,179 copies in its first week and I’m sure it will be going platinum within the next two weeks. When you look at the chart (image below), there isn’t anybody even close to Drizzy’s sales numbers. Congrats to Drake and the whole YMCMB squad!
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen as much hype surround an album as I have for Drake’s third studio album Nothing Was The Same! Actually, now that I think back on it, I think Drake’s sophomore album Take Care was the last time I’ve seen so much hype surround a project. With great hype, (usually) comes great music. So did Drake live up to the the expectations and prove the doubters wrong? Check out our track-by-track review below and find out.
