Amoeba Review

03/29/2017

Every week it seems like there's a new single from Drake, another collaboration, a new album, and now a "playlist." More Life doesn't have the narrative, cohesive style of Views, but it feels like a perfect overview of the new direction Drake is headed in. More Life is a distillation of the various attitudes he's been experimenting with and his new love of combining chill R&B beats, grime, and house, all with a flavor of Jamaican dancehall. Even the title is taken from the Jamaican phrase that means to wish someone well. Although More Life is being called a playlist, it's being treated as anything but. The album is smashing all types of records including having all 22 tracks on the Billboard Top 100 list. Plus it features a list of guests that transcends being just a flimsy mixtape: Kanye West, Young Thug, 2 Chainz, Moodyman and more. And even though the songs are inescapable on the radio, the album as a whole feels like some of the best work Drake has done. "Passionfruit" might be his most sophisticated track to this point. The feel and beats of dancehall are all over it, but it has undertones of early-'80s electro R&B. It's both meditatively calm and instantly danceable while Drake is at his most sultry. "Free Smoke" feels like an old school free flow jam that has a stream-of-consciousness vibe. His mind turns 100mph from self-deprecation, relationship drama, introspective depression, and aggression so fast, it is almost impossible to keep up with. With More Life, Drake continues to create a body of work that seems to go beyond a mega-phenomenon. It's a fun experiment and gives you a good taste of where he might evolve into.
