While most of us in the UK were sound asleep, Drake followed yesterday’s short film Jungle with a 17-track release (some are calling it a mixtape, others an album: take your pick).
If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late is available now on iTunes, following initial reports that we could all download it for free. In his four-star review, pop critic Paul Lester says:
“There’s a lot of music to absorb, and a lot of lyrics that, even for Drake, are self-absorbed and existentially wracked. If you’ve seen the video, Jungle, that accompanies this release, you’ll probably know that If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late isn’t going to be an album of party bangers.”

Last night at a surprise show at SXSW, Drake and his OVO Sound crew showcased their talents at The FADER FORT. After the performance, PartyNextDoor shared a collaboration between him and his label’s head honcho, “Come And See Me.” It’s expected to land on his upcoming P3 album.
While at SXSW, Drake said Views From the 6 is coming “coming in I don’t know how many weeks,” but it’s been rumored it’ll land in April. So it seems we’ll be getting new projects from both Drake and PND soon.
Listen to “Come and See Me,” which is produced by Noah “40” Schebib, below.
