    That’s why it was a snorefest lol…he definitely didn’t sell them his best album, but he gave them alot of material…it was a business move, and it sounded that way…the songs sounded safe like he was channeling his inner Adele 25, no shade…it was music for a bigger audience, or for new fans who were buying a Drake album for the first time…Views From The Check lol

    I think this will album will be better than views. I think he knows that his fans want the old Drake back. I’m pretty sure he’s trying something different based on the features but we will see. I always liked drake prior to Views “sneaking” and “fake love” are dope songs so I think I will like this album

    Drake makes catchy music and he doesn’t try to be something he’s not. The queens on here love to hate on him, but he’s striking the iron while it’s hot. Drake has definitely solidified his place in the music industry.

    I wonder who is the most successful at young money. Ima guess Drake but I dont know for sure because my fave is just Beyonce so anyone else I wouldnt know .

    I wonder is Apple got all of the sales or just for those few weeks. Or did they grad only the streaming money and profit from the added subscriptions. But when Rihanna did this for $25bwith Samsung, haters called it cheating. Sadly for Drake, Birdman got most of that money,Rihanna got all of hers.

    • JOHNVIDAL March 13, 2017

      Why the comparison? Truth is Rihanna barely sold over 500k real copies in total while Drake sold over 800k real copies first week. That´s the comparison that destroys the rest.

        Doesn’t matter when Apple/Universal/Republic/CashMoney/YoungMoney are getting cuts. While Rih is her and Roc Nation. Plus Anti is the most streamed album by a female, guess who gets all that money… the holder of the music masters. Stay in your lane… lame.

    Samsung paid Rihanna more… #TwentyFiveMil

Drake is renown for using his body as a canvas of appreciation. Indeed, over the years the Canadian Hip-Hop star has tattooed the likes of Aaliyah and Sade onto his frame. The latest name to join Drizzy’s personal hall of fame is none other than Young Money comrade Lil Wayne. Details below…
