Drake surprised fans by releasing two new singles on SoundCloud.
The Toronto rapper gave fans a taste of what to expect from his hotly-anticipated follow-up to 2018 LP ‘Scorpion’ by unleashing the tracks ‘When to Say When’ and ‘Chicago Freestyle’ over the weekend – along with one music video for both songs.
The ‘God’s Plan’ hitmaker talks about fatherhood and his Billboard chart records on ‘When to Say When’, mentioning the mother of his two-year-old son, Adonis.
On one verse, he spits: “Ayy, 33 years, I gave that to the game/ 33 mill, I save that for the ring/ 500 weeks, I fill the charts with my pain … Baby mama fluke, but I love her for who she is…”
Whilst on the other song – which borrows lyrics from Eminem’s 2002 hit ‘Superman’ – he raps: “Area code in my phone, what numbers do I still have?/ Who do I know from the past?/Hit one, she say she got a man/ Hit another one it goes green. Must’ve changed phones on the team.”
Last August, the ‘Hotline Bling’ hitmaker surprised fans by dropping a ‘Care Package’ compilation album, featuring unreleased tracks as reported on The Sauce.
He announced on social media: “Available Friday on all platforms. Some of our most important moments together available in one place. Care Package.” The surprise project included fan-favorite tracks such as ‘Can I’ – which was leaked around the time ‘Views’ came out – ‘Girls Love Beyonce’, and ‘Paris Morton Music’.
Plus features from J. Cole, James Fauntleroy, and Rick Ross.
The record came just a few months after the 33-year-old superstar – whose real name is Aubrey Graham – re-released his 2009 album ‘So Far Gone’, finally making the 10-year-old project available to stream on all platforms.
