drake just dropped two new tracks, with a jay-z and kanye feature
Drizzy leaked ‘Pop Style,’ ft. The Throne, and ‘One Dance’ this morning on Twitter.
Hip-hop kings Jay-Z and Kanye have been warning us to watch their throne since 2011, but this morning Drake stole the crown when he leaked TWO songs from his hotly anticipated album Views From the 6.
"Pop Style," featuring Jay and Ye — credited as The Throne — is a 3-minute-29-second mind-melting experience from the three greatest rappers of our time. The 6 God and Yeezus put their Nike vs Adidas differences aside to "do it pop style," and though Hova only ad-libs one bar, it's undoubtedly a religious experience.
The second track, "One Dance," features two newcomers: Nigerian reggae artist WizKid, and UK dance singer Kyla, with a sample of her 2009 remix "Do You Mind." This imminent club anthem should come as no surprise given that October's Very Own recently signed with Skepta's grime label, Boy Better Know — and considering his reggae-pop feature on Rihanna's dancehall banger 'Work'.
The songs are available only on Apple Music at the moment, but it's safe to say the view from the 6 is looking pretty good.
