Drake's More Life, released on streaming services last Saturday, was billed as a "playlist project" rather than an official album or even a mixtape. But it seems that the 22-track collection will see a physical release. As Pitchfork points, the project's Amazon listing suggests that More Life will be available as a CD on March 31.
The 22-track project, which was first announced in October, arrives in the form of a playlist curated by October Firm, comprised of Drake
and his manager Oliver
El-Khatib. The guest list includes Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Travis
Scott, Quavo, Young Thug, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Giggs, Skepta, Sampha, and more. While Jennifer Lopez
does not appear, Drake
samples his rumored ex's On the 6 single "If You Had My Love
" on "Teenage Fever."
According to Drizzy, More Life was designed to feel like an episode of OVOSOUND Radio. "The style in which it's being put together is based off of our concept that is OVOSOUND Radio," he explained. "I love the way it's put together. It's really put together as a seamless listen. Basically, what I asked myself was, 'What would happen if I just did an OVOSOUND Radio
but every song was a new Drake
song?' That was kind of my idea for it.'"
More Life follows Views, but Drake
does not consider it an album, describing it simply as an "evolution of the mixtape."
"It was getting tough to be like, 'I'm dropping a mixtape but it's for sale on iTunes.' It was like, 'Oh, that's your album.' I didn't want people to say this is my next album," he said. "Views was my album. This is something that, after Views, I was just inspired. I wanted to keep the music flowing."
More Life is now available on all digital platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, and TIDAL.
