Here’s every single reaction the internet had to Drake’s new album
Drake’s new album/playlist More Life dropped over the weekend. And everyone’s favourite Canadian rapper is currently enjoying the success that only he is accustomed to now: it’s at the top of the charts, and probably will be for a while. At 22 tracks long across a whopping one hour and 21 minutes, there’s also lot of it – like, a lot.
From the moment the album began streaming, social media went nuts, commenting on absolutely everything there is to comment about on More Life. From the samples and lyrics to the beats and production, to the guest artist features – and lack thereof (A Drake release without Rihanna? Really?!) here’s a few of our favourite reactions to More Life.
For starters, everyone was really, really, really excited

22 tracks and not one with a Lil Wayne feature. How Drake gonna disrespect his father like that?

And everyone noticed Drizzy’s love of, er, adopting global sounds…
I now wonder if Drake ever truly loved Rihanna or whether he was just trying to improve his Island accent.

Ultimately, everyone seems to love it – especially compared to Views.
More Life sounds like what Drake was tryna do on Views. He got it right this time.
— Podcast Papi 🇭🇹 (@Combat_Jack) March 19, 2017
Drake’s More Life album is about 5x better then Views
— Qperks (@Quinton_P1) March 19, 2017
It’s safe to say that “More Life” is easily one of Drake’s best projects (in my opinion of course). This is what “Views” should have been.
