    15 Things You Need To Know About Drake's "More Life"

    The rapper shares details about his relationship with Jennifer Lopez, for one.

    1. It's not an album, or a mixtape, it's a playlist.

    2. He spills some tea about he and rumored ex-bae Jennifer Lopez.

    3. He's not done taking shots at Meek Mill.

    4. Yes that's Sampha singing on "4422," even though the track strangely doesn't include a feature credit or his name in the title like the others.

    5. "Jorja Interlude" samples Stevie Wonder's harmonica solo from Drake's 2011 song "Doing It Wrong."

    6. Drake's latest cultural obsession? London Town.

    The UK's Grime scene to be exact. He features a couple of the subgenre's artists, including Giggs and Skepta.

    7. Drake takes advantage of the current trap wave, adding features from rappers like Quavo, Travis Scott, Young Thug, and of course, 2 Chainz.

    Surprisingly, no one mentioned the word Versace even once.

    8. His long-time obsession with island music is prevalent on tracks like "Madiba Riddim" and "Blem."

    9. Drake's back to his old ways of including people's voicemail messages on his songs. This time it's one from his mom, who seems to be a fan of Michelle Obama.

    10. We finally get a proper Drake and Kanye collaboration — one Ye may have dropped a clue about more than six months ago.

    Ok bear with me, there's a bit to unpack here.

    Both rappers have said that they are working on a joint album. Then Drake released a version of "Pop Style" with Kanye and Jay Z verses last year, but when Views came out on Apple Music and the like, Ye's verse had curiously been replaced with another from Drake. Then Kanye made Drake the target of one of his many rants during the Saint Pablo tour. Drake responded to this during an interview on his OVO Sound radio show on Beats 1, "I went from being… like working on a project with him, to him sorta publicly shitting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much.”

    I'm still not sure if Kanye producing and rapping on "Glow" is a sign that the two were able to patch things up, but it does seem North knew this was coming for quite awhile.

    Fun Fact: The track includes Earth, Wind, and Fire's classic "Devotion" #fortheculture.

    11. Drake may or may not have told Nicki Minaj he still wants her on "Ice Melts."

    12. "Nothings Into Somethings" seems like it's about his old flame Serena Williams' recent engagement.

    13. Kendall Jenner is one of the only celebrity women directly named on the playlist.

    14. We may not hear from Drake again until 2018.

    15. Don't worry, More Life has supplied us with plenty of Instagram captions to get through the summer.
