OVO Sound Radio was poppin’ tonight with 3 new exclusives to the Apple Music streaming show. Up first: “Charged Up” — a response to Meek Mill. Quotables/press play below (lowkey though, the Cory Joseph reference… this NBA nerd approves.)
Calmest response record, maybe ever? Ha. Bait record too, though?
Drake “Charged Up”
“N****s are snitchin on us without no interrogation.
I stay silent cause we at war and I’m very patient.
6 God is watchin I just hope you’re prepared to face him I’m charged up!.. I’m charged up.
Wow I’m honored that you think this is staged.
I’m flattered man, in fact I think I’m amazed.”
“No woman had me star stuck, or was able to tell me to get my bars up.”
“Rumor has it there is something that only I know,
Rumor has it I steer the ship with only my eyes closed.
Rumor has it that I either f***ed her, or I never could.
But rumor has it never did you n***as any good.”
Meek’s business manager tweets “Trust me this is going to be epic!” so stay. Tuned.
In this next Apple Music exclusive, Drake laments about a former lover, homebody turned club-goer. It’s over the reggae sounds of D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha”. If you don’t mind hearing the “You used to call me on the cell phone” line a bunch then you’ll vibe with this one too (I was ehhh on this one.)

The third exclusive for OVO Sound Radio (Ep. 2) features a distinctive production right off the bat by Vinylz & Frank Dukes. Drake flows about a lady friend once again, his “Right Hand”. I prefer this one over the record above, and it has the most replay value of all 3, in my opinion. The verses and chorus are pretty on point, on top of the addicting melody of the beat. The second verse especially.
