Drake| More Life Album Review

Drake has dropped what may be the biggest album of 2017. More Life consist of 22 tracks totaling an hour and 21 minutes. The album contains several features most notably Quavo (of Migos) and Travis Scott who are on the track Portland. 

The album has a relaxed feel to it and songs like Passionfruit and Get It Together make you just want to dance. For the most part More Life would be best suited for R&B fans although there’s a couple tracks for those who could care less about Drake’s singing. Gyalchester, Portland, KMT, Can’t have everything, Free Smoke, & No Long Talk are the more rap focused tracks. It’s pretty apparent that drake wanted a more emotional feel with this album and he definitely made it a album with “personality”.

The album did contain one track that Drake wasn’t even on, that track was the Skepta Interlude. Skepta is a top level rapper from the UK and he completely murdered the track and made his case fir the best rapper in Europe. Drake definitely made an album that might be considered for album of the year. 

Personal Thought 

For me More Life was another well done album that I just so happned to be perfect. This was one of the few times where I genuinely liked every song that was on the album right away, usually it would take me a while to get used to the songs. My favorite tracks are Gyalchester, Passionfruit, and Nothings Into Something. 

Verdict

More Life is aimed more so towards R&B listeners with a few rap songs. The features were very good with the only one that seemed a bit off, that being Quavo on Sacrifices. Quavo’s voice just doesn’t sound right with auto tune to me. I’m honestly suprised that Kehlani and Tinashe didn’t get any features, I’m also a bit suprised that Drake didn’t get Peewee Longaway on Gyalchester because he would’ve killed the beat with no problem. Overall the album has good beats and the featured artist definetly came in clutch espically Giggs. I’d give the album a 9/10. 

Artist Spotlight: Norman Perry

In my attempt to expand my selection of R&B artist I happened to run across Perry. Norrman Perry is an artist from New Haven, Connecticut and his music is a mix of R&B and rap, he reminds me of Krews who has a similar style. 

Perry’s songs never use just one type of beat some beats are more bass heavy while others are more calm which allows each song fo have a different feel and it doesn’t make his music stale.

Both Elvira and Grindin have Perry’s singing on them but the songs have two very different “personalities” Elvira is the kind of track that will have you and your partner feeling like y’all are dtf while Grindin is a track that you’d just chill to and do some deep thinking to. 

Earlier I stated that Perry and Krews had very similar, there are some major differences however. The biggest ones being Perry is a much more refined singer and Krews being a much better rapper. 


If Krew$ and Perry were to collab it would be fire. If Perry gets more attention he’ll be main stream within the next 3 years.
