“More Life” Introduced Me to a New Genre of Music


Edward O'Neil, Staff Designer

When it comes to music, I like the classics. And you’ll usually catch me listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd or Pink Floyd, but Drake’s new album has introduced me to a different genre of music.
Drake’s new album More Life was released on March 18 with much anticipation, but since then has been labeled as a disappointment.
It features the typical Drake who enunciates his E’s and A’s and odd beats. Personally I don’t listen to him that often, or any kind of rap, but this new album included a few tasty tunes that were crisp to the ears. More Life features several artists such as Quavo, Travis Scott, and 2 Chainz and the album switches tones between and during the tracks. At times it seems like Drake is going for the typical rap theme, but then it switches to a more hippie-ish tone that can be slow and almost sad at one point, and then moves back to fast and happy.
Don’t get me wrong, not all of the songs on this album are bad, there are a few songs that I did quite enjoy from Drake’s album like “No Long Talk” and “Can’t Have Everything” which as of right now are my two favorites.
Again, Drake isn’t what I normally listen to, but he did show me another kind of genre, even if I didn’t like it.
