Amoeba Review

On Drake’s expansive new album, he gets mellower and more introspective than ever, though VIEWS’ lovely façade hides an interior marred by paranoia and self-loathing. Lines like “Pop Life’s” “I can’t trust no fuckin’ body/They still out to get me ’cause they never got me” work pathological paranoia into darkly catchy headphone tunes on “Pop Life.” Tracks like “U With Me?” offer a glimpse of how the bacchanalia of Drake’s life (“I know you heard that my pool parties like Mardi Gras … and my house is the definition of alcohol and weed addiction”) can be alienating and poisonous for a relationship. Though Drake largely trades in honest but somewhat controlling missives about his perception of his relationships, “Redemption” offers a softer side as he offers lines like “I miss the feeling of you missing me” over a beautifully downcast backdrop. Similarly, “With You” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR is a sweet, spacey counterpoint to Drake’s more bitter tracks, while several tracks enliven the mood with a Caribbean-flavored bounce, especially effective on “Too Good” with Rihanna; similarly to Rihanna on ANTI, Drake sounds like a pop star sick of playing the game here, while she provides a welcome outside (and female) voice to the proceedings. Sometimes the album borders on solipsistic, but it’s still entirely relatable. It feels like a day spent inside someone else’s head. Drake still has the power to do that like no other. And if nothing else, “Hotline Bling” is THE time capsule song of the past couple of years.
