  • Controlla (feat. Popcaan) [Original]
  • Drake
  • Unknown Album

In early April, one of Drake’s songs from his album (then thought to be called Views from the 6) leaked.  It was titled “Controlla” and it featured well-known dancehall artist Popcaan.  An amazing song… only downside is that it was a rather low quality leak.  You can hear it attached.  A few days ago, Drake’s tracklist for the newly titled Views was released, and “Controlla” was on there.  I was super excited!  Yesterday, the album dropped, and it was the first song I listened to… WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!  Popcaan was completely removed and replaced with a Beenie Man sample and new Drake verse.  While it was high quality, the sacrifice doesn’t seem worth it!  YouTube removed it, so if you want to hear the newest version, buy Drake’s new album, Views!  :-)

This is not the first time this has happened.  

Back in college, Lupe FIasco released a song produced my Pharrell… it was heavy in bass and called “Horn Synth”.  The verse was very promising, but it was merely a snippet.  Here it is:

 I long awaited a full version… And about a year or so later, Travis Barker dropped an album that had a lot of rappers on it and I happened to listen.  I stumbled upon this:

Sound familiar?  YES, it’s the completed version of the song… except, it’s called “If You Want To” and has drums on it now.  I don’t dislike them, but I personally preferred to hear the heavy bass on the beat.  It was swanky.  

With that said, sometimes the demos / snippets / rough cuts can be better than the final product of a song.  Don’t experience it, it can be disappointing.  

This album was never going to be an easy pill to swallow given it’s dire roll-out over the last year or so. Fans were toyed with over cancellations, cruel livestreams and questionable twitter antics, and it was unlikely anything was set to ever repair the rift Fiasco had created.
