Back in October, Drake first announced his More Life project to celebrate the rapper’s 30th birthday, dropping three new songs including “Two Birds, One Stone,” “Sneakin’” featuring 21 Savage and “Fake Love.”
During his announcement on his Beats 1 OVO Radio Show, Drake revealed that the rest of the playlist would drop in December. Describing the upcoming release specifically as a playlist, Drake said, “I’m off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist. I want to give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life, so this “More Life: The Playlist.”
The year ended with no new music from Drizzy, but thankfully, we now have a release date and it’s soon.
Over the weekend, Drake dropped a trailer for his More Life playlist on his Instagram page. The video shows Drake and his entourage traveling on private planes, performing at concerts, and living it up in the club. The video ends with the date March 18, signaling that the More Life playlist will finally arrive in full this week.
Following the release of the trailer for More Life, Drake posted a picture of his personal photographer Theo Skudra, writing “More Life and More Film to capture it all.”
Skudra has previously directed a music video for The Game, which could mean the photographer has again stretched his directorial muscles and shot a short film to accompany the debut of More Life. If this is the case, it will be the third short film Drizzy has released, following 2016 Please Forgive Me and 2015’s Jungle.
In addition to the More Life announcement, Drake also made headlines this past weekend for reuniting with Nicki Minaj. During his concert in Paris over the weekend, Drake surprised his thousands of fans in attendance by bringing out Minaj.
The two frequent collaborators have been famously absent from each others’ lives following Minaj’s relationship with Meek Mill, which resulted in a number of diss tracks shared between Drake and Mill. Minaj and Mill have since split and on Friday, Minaj released “No Frauds” (listen here) with her Young Money family of Drake and Lil Wayne.
During Saturday’s show in Paris, Minaj and Drake performed “No Frauds” as well as a few verses from 2014’s “Truffle Butter.” Dare we cross our fingers for a possible Nicki/Drizzy track on More Life?
