Drake: "'More Life' is not an album, it's a playlist"

Drake recently said during an interview that More Life is not an album but a playlist with Apple Music.

Quote
"It’s something I’m doing in conjunction with Apple,” said the 6 God. “Usually, in between albums, artists would do a mixtape but I’m doing a playlist with Apple. It’s sort of the same concept. It’s not an album but it is a body of work I’m creating, just to bridge the gap between my major releases, to keep people excited, give people new music, let people know I’m still hungry".

"If You're Reading This, It's Too Late is a mixtape tea"

He already said it was a playlist before, but yeah it's definitely legitimately playlist-like this time and not debatable like IYRTITL/WATTBA being mixtapes.


He said it's a mix of songs from OVO Artists not just him, and the fact that it's probably streaming only further pushes it as a compilation/playlist.

What does that even mean tho?

He'll keep releasing songs under the More Life playlist until his next album. It's sound messy tho

It actually sounds smart. Watch artists copy this and he set a trend.  


Now that it's the streaming era, it makes even more of an idea to have a "playlist" you put scraps on to keep fans interested while creating the album. It's especially smart for rappers, since they do so well on streaming naturally and always release scraps/mixtapes.

:skull: I'm expecting the album/playlist not be coehesive then... 

Better deliver that Rock/Alternative side Drake ! 

thats what im getting from this too. its his way of saying theres not really a theme. like most rihanna albums. no shade cause im a stan but rihanna gets a lot of criticism for her lack of cohesion on her albums. even though all 6 of her albums are amazing.

He's literally said that already.

More Life will probably just take the place of how he's used Soundcloud in between era's which makes since
