New Tracks: Drake – ‘These Days’ & ‘Controlla’
We’re only days away from April and Drake is expected to drop his highly anticipated album, ‘Views From The 6ix’, at any time during the month. Two new tracks have surfaced online this morning, and it’s not known if they’ll be on the album, but ‘These Days’ and ‘Controlla’ give us a glimpse at to what Champagne Papi has been quietly creating over the past few months.
Hard pass on ‘These Days’. It’s just not what we’ve come to expect from Drake. It’s perhaps a bit too much from the emotional rapper-singer. Drake getting into his emotions over a twangy guitar? Maybe next time.
‘Controlla’ – however – is nothing, but a delight. Featuring the Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan, it takes Drake back to the subtleness that made ‘Hotline Bling’ big. It may not have the huge hook that the single had, but it’s a great sister track that we’re hoping gets an official release.
