UPDATE: A month-plus later, “Energy” is up on VEVO for all you non-Apple Music subscribers.
07.10.15: If you’ve followed Drake on the ‘gram you know that today was that “Energy” video drop date, only on Apple Music.
Accompanying the video though, Drake chopped it up with Zane Lowe (UPDATE: Rip of the interview below.) and announced the OVO Sound Radio Show, which will definitely play exclusives from time to time…
Like the first listen of Majid Jordan’s new single “My Love” featuring Drake. Looking for a stream so stay tuned for an update. In the meantime… update that iOS!
Sounds like “Tuesday” won’t be the first time you’ll be hearing Drake and ILOVEMAKONNEN. The Toronto superstar made it official today, signing ILOVEMAKONNEN to his OVO Sound label, which, if you’re counting at home, is the second all-caps singer Drake has signed to OVO Sound.
All (accurate) jokes aside, I need to hear more of Makonnen before I can fully decide if I’m a fan, but I truthfully wasn’t that impressed with “Tuesday”. I thought the song suited the high-pitched styles of other singers in the game, who I feel coulda done it even better. Regardless, the single is now an official OVO Sound single on iTunes, as seen below, and to put the icing on the cake, Drake brought out Makonnen tonight in the ATL. Video of that is below as well.
Sidebar: Makonnen is the dude to the right of Drake in the lead photo. (I googled him to make sure)
NEW Drake this morning as he links up with his OVO Sound partna OB OBrien for a new remix of Tinashe’s “2 On”. The DJ Mustard beat is a suitable backdrop for Drizzy, who adds a verse after OB’s and then breaks it down in the slowed-down “Thotful” part of the track. You can guess what that one becomes about, right? Interesting to note: this one was recorded this weekend as Drake alluded to on Twitter.
BONUS: Another OB OBrien track is released in tandem — it’s a solo cut dedicated to a girl named “Hazelton Trump”. I dig the choppy flow and clear story to follow; plus, the Nicki Minaj sample that surfaces is straight up hypnotic.
