If you're reading this, chances are that you, like many, have been anticipating the arrival of Drake's More Life. Back in October, the Toronto rapper himself announced a December release for the project that is said to be "a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life." Now, as revealed earlier today (December 10) on OVO Sound Radio, More Life has since been pushed back to early 2017.
On OVO Sound Radio today, October's Very Own co-founder Oliver El-Khatib opened the show by announcing that More Life has been pushed to the top of 2017. Sadly, the news comes after the album, or "playlist" as it's been described, was already a part of the most anticipated albums to close out 2016, joining a list of releases by J. Cole, Kid Cudi, Childish Gambino, Gucci Mane, The Lox, Ab-Soul and more.
Still, despite the push back, the promo behind More Life has already been built by the debut of "Fake Love" and "Sneakin." Both songs have already impacted the Billboard Hot 100 with "Fake Love" at No. 11 and "Sneakin'" sitting at No. 66. Last month, Drake released a music video for the latter featuring 21 Savage.
With an album artwork unveiled, singles released, a European tour scheduled (also top of 2017) and now target date for 2017 set, all signs are pointing toward an imminent drop for More Life. besides, New Years Eve is also approaching soon. So, as someone who is no stranger to dropping new music around that time of year (Remember "Trophies" and "We Made It"?) , there's a good chance that Drizzy has a few plans for keeping that momentum rolling.
