Drake Sets New Release Date For ‘More Life’ / J. Cole To Blame?

Published: Sunday 11th Dec 2016 by David

Drake’s ‘More Life‘ release date has been pushed back t0 2017?

Why some of his fans (and critics) think this happened?

J. Cole’s ‘Eyez.’

Full story below…

Drake’s manager Oliver El-Khatib revealed:

More Life is coming at the top of 2017. Stay tuned for some more updates.

Originally due this month, the playlist would have gone head to head with J. Cole’s ‘4 Your Eyez Only’ which is expected to open with around 550,000 units units moved in its launch week.

This, according to some industry observers, may explain Drake’s delay.

 

Drake’s latest album ‘Views‘ moved 852,000 units in its U.S. opening week without streams.

Since its April 29th release, the set has sold and streamed over 4 million units in the market and received a Platinum certification for sales of 300,000 units in the United Kingdom.

Despite all of this, it finds himself falling behind Cole’s ‘Eyes’ on a critical front presenting a challenge for the ‘One Dance’ maestro as he readies the hotly-anticipated ‘Life.’

Do you agree?

    He releases TOO MUCH music TOO CLOSE to one another. I don’t need to hear his voice on the radio every third song year after year… His music isn’t good enough for that

    • SMH December 11, 2016

      His sales say otherwise.

      • Cupid December 11, 2016

        He’s got people hooked but drake isn’t that good.

      • BOOBIE December 11, 2016

        What are those reviews saying though?

    • BOOBIE December 11, 2016

      Soooo quantity = quality now? Oooook

  2. Wow December 11, 2016

    So this becomes a post based off twitter assumptions?

    • Unfoolish 2016 December 11, 2016

      Didn’t you the question mark? It’s up for debate and discussion.

      • Wow December 11, 2016

        Yes I saw that. But clearly you are one of the folks who find these types of conversations interesting to make a debate. When honestly these types of “debates” creates false beefs and stan wars. If you find that worth conversing over then by all mean converse, but I find news that have facts to be more interesting and worth my time. That’s all.

    SHOOK! ????Put ya diamonds in the air, cuz we in this biitch anothergain! ??

  4. SMH December 11, 2016

    Lmao. What kind of elementary school sh*t is this? Drake has the biggest debut week of the year. He is not “shook” over someone who’s not even gonna open with half of what he did first week. These twitter stans take stupidity to a whole new level.

    • Anita Shaker December 11, 2016

      Sales don’t mean much if your credibility is in tatters. ANTI is one of Frih’s lowest sellers but is more acclaimed than Loud which sold about five times more.

      • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? December 11, 2016

        Drag it.

    • \Truth(yaaasss honey) December 11, 2016

    • Yandi December 18, 2016

      Ok!!!????? delusional ass people !

  5. Iloverihanna December 11, 2016

    Please we need “real” rap music tired of this boys generic watered down “rap” songs…bring on J.Cole!!

  6. msbeautynglam December 11, 2016

    I’m so sick of drake releasing music every 2 days he needs to take a break what is he afraid of .He is so overrated it took him 7 years to get a number 1 without help from rihanna I dont see that as a achievement when he has released like 100 singles and it took him 7 years to get worldwide recognition.

    • \Truth(yaaasss honey) December 11, 2016

      Me too hunny

  7. Mark111 December 11, 2016

    Competition is good, Cole still sold albums in a Drake world with his pass few releases. The only rappers having problems selling is Kendrick (he sell ok) Big Sean & Wales. Of nd Nicki been flopping as well, she’s also their peer. Drake is just trying to get off that contract. He should be there by now.

    • Mr.StLaurent December 11, 2016

      Nicki is nowhere from flopping ?

    • AmbeRussell December 12, 2016

      But kendrick is selling and is winning awards. he is the grammy golden boy out of the names mentioned above. he does have more out of a;; the names mentioned combined in a very short amount of time.

  8. Kwinzy December 11, 2016

    Aubrey is lowkey shook not ’cause he won’t sell (that’s a given) but ’cause he wants a #1 album. This is a good look for Cole!

  9. Reginae Stan December 11, 2016

    Why would drake be shook? He has like a million albums and all of them sold big in the first week and went platinum ?

  10. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? December 11, 2016

    I’m getting sick of hearing Drake TBH.

    • tyana Jones December 11, 2016

      Me too FAM, BREEZY YEAR ALMOST HERE.

      • Kiii December 11, 2016

        Breezy’s year came and went 9 years ago…

    • tyana Jones December 11, 2016

      U what’s weird on the radio? I don’t hear one of Chris Brown songs all the week days or weeken we hear Drake s*** every single day.

  11. B_Roni December 11, 2016

    Honestly real rap has been long gone. Secondly everyone has an opinion what’s real to someone may not be real to another. J cole music doesn’t speak to me cause I never went through any of the stuff he writes about besides being black and being looked at differently. I think Drake is just playing his cards right to maximize on his success. I wish J Cole the best but for me a constant album seller is better than first week sales. Hopefully both artist will do great.

  12. Sherrele December 11, 2016

    I like J Cole more than Drake. Drake has some good dance songs but no songs with a message. JCole songs have more meaning and message.

  13. RhiRocks December 11, 2016

    He is basically the male Rihanna realesdonh music every year so people don’t forget him

  14. Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler December 11, 2016

    Cole is the better lyricist hands down. Plus, VIEWS is Drake’s worst reviewed album to date #ColeWorld

  15. Rosie December 11, 2016

    I like J Cole and all but his stans are always doing the most. Not only are they STILL seriously trying it with this “you have to have a certain level of intelligence to listen to him” BS even though it’s basically a meme at this point but they think Drake, out of all rappers, is shook over a 400K+ first week. His two “mixtapes” did that in three days lmao.
    His album is certainly better than Views though, and he seems like a very nice person, so congrats.

  16. Kiii December 11, 2016

    I think drake’s latest music has been okay nothing spectacular, he’s starting to suffer from oversexposure though. I still think he has a ton of potential he just needs to take a step back rn and give us time to miss him.

  17. Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 11, 2016

    Obviously..J COLE is a better artist than drake by far. Anyone that says otherwise is WHITE. J.cole got him shook, drake is scared his DUMB lyrics will be compared to cole’s and he could be put to shame by social media. But, drake needs to be careful with releasing too much music before people get sick and tired of him fast…DON’T BELIVE ME JUST WATCH!

  18. France December 11, 2016

    ? He is such a bore.

  19. JoJ December 12, 2016

    Drakeisha needs to sit his tired ass the fvck down, tired of him and his overhyped recycled music. All his s*** starting to sound the same.

  20. JoJ December 12, 2016

    No wonder rihanna curved his pathetic ass

  21. #Nicole Nation/King Bruno December 12, 2016

    I’m kinda over Drake, TBH. Unless he can go back to his old style I’m done with him. I’ll just keep Thank Me Later and So Far Gone on repeat, everything else this year except Summer 16 is a big fat no!

    That’s what happens when you hang around rihanna for too long, her mediocrity rubs off on you, poor Drizzy. Same happened to Jay, Slim, and Ye
