Watching Drake’s journey to become the self-proclaimed “6 God” has been quite a rollercoaster. From his first mixtape in 2006, Room For Improvement, he already knew that he was going to be a sensation. With fame, comes all of the awareness of what it feels like to lose the spotlight. As Biggie Smalls once said — at least in the film Notorious — “once you on top, you can only go down.” Drake’s been at the bottom, he’s at the top and now he’s trying to slow his regression with this piece of work.

Although it sold over 600,000 copies on the first day, this new album is definitely a miss for me. Though I love Hotline Bling as much as the next person, I can’t get into this track list. I believe this album was more of a diss to certain people than it was for the fans. Let’s be real though, fans love it when fames beef, it gives them something to do. So, I’ll give it to Drake, he entertained me with this one, but I still like his other releases more.
Maybe a few more listens and he’ll be able to make me swoon over this record, too. But, in the mean time, have fun with this site that lets you place sitting-Drake anywhere on a picture of your choice.
