Drake’s More Life Is No Playlist, But Does Offer Itself As A Collection Of Good Music Anyway

While it was on the air, OVO Sound Radio was a true staple in the music scene and Drake’s career. Fortnight after fortnight, it felt obligatory to tune in and see what he, or Oliver, or any of the plethora of special guests had to play for the world. The show kicked off in July of 2015 just a couple of weeks after Beats 1 Radio itself debuted. On the first night, Drake and Oliver premiered three new records; his and Skepta’s ‘Ojuelegba’ remix, ‘Drama’ with Roy Wood$ and his remix of Ramriddlz’s ‘Sweeterman’. Famously, after the first episode, Meek Mill came out and dissed Drake and so episode two of the show was even more highly anticipated than the first. Drake responded with ‘Charged Up’ but also dropped ‘Hotline Bling’ and ‘Right Hand’. I remember being on a vacation at the time but still covering the releases and they truly felt colossal. Fellow tourists were aware of the music dropping. As well as the exclusives, every episode, any other music that Drake chose to play had a magnifying glass put over it, naturally. It was his way of communicating with fans outside of social media and his own music. It was an evolution of the OVO blog from back in the day, where he and the crew would post whatever they were feeling to get their point across. Oliver ended up taking the show’s duty’s every couple of weeks but the format of the show gave Drake an idea.
