Drake “Pop Style” f/ Kanye West & Jay Z x “One Dance” f/ Wizkid & Kyla
Out of nowhere, Drake takes over Tuesday with a couple new joints officially released through Apple Music — “Pop Style” featuring Kanye West and Jay Z and “One Dance” featuring WizKid & Kyla. Without further ado, the streams…

Of course you’re first hearing some new Jay Z right?

Yeah, he has two lines. This GIF is perfect except that it may be actually too long of a representation.
Drake and Kanye, meanwhile, rock a slow flow and rap about, well, more of the same. As a result, the slow flow didn’t capture like much of their recent work so I think “Pop Style” is rather forgettable to be frank. It’s “One Dance” that I’m vibing with more as Drake crosses over into more dancehall and afrobeat genres with Nigerian artist WizKid and UK singer Kyla. This one’s just smooth and will definitely be in the going out playlists, lounges, and clubs as soon as this weekend.
As for Views, well, this is certainly an indication that Drake’s April target is on track. Look for it to coordinate with Apple Music, perhaps this weekend or next. I doubt later at this point.
Doesn’t Drake have anyone in these OVO hit factories who can make some single art, though?
