Drake has dropped the Scary Hours 2 EP, as promised. It’s three songs and includes guest spots from Rick Ross and Lil Baby. Listen to the new songs “What’s Next,” “Wants and Needs,” and “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” below. “What’s Next” also got a new music video directed by Theo Skudra. Watch that below, too,.
Tonight, Drake also relaunched OVO Sound Radio—formerly an Apple Music Radio show that’s now on SiriusXM—on a new 24-hour Sirius channel SOUND 42.
A new album from Drake called Certified Lover Boy is expected for release some time this year. Tonight on OVO Sound, he offered an update without giving a specific release date. “CLB is currently being chef’d in every way possible,” he said, noting that he’s been working with his regular collaborators Noel Cadastre and Noah “40” Shebib. “I don’t have an exact date, but it’s in the pot and it’s coming soon.” The record was initially set for January 2021, but it was postponed after Drake sustained a knee injury.
Last year, Drake released the Dark Lane Demo Tapes. The project featured guest appearances by Playboi Carti, Future, Young Thug, and more. It includes “Pain 1993,” “Toosie Slide,” “Desires” “When to Say When,” “Chicago Freestyle,” and “War.”
Here’s How Fans Are Reacting to Drake Referencing Kanye on ‘Scary Hours 2’ Track “Wants and Needs”
“Yeah, I probably should go link with Yeezy, I need me some Jesus
But soon as I started confessing my sins, he wouldn’t believe us”
The lyrics arguably serve as merely a playful riffing on West’s years-long Jesus Is King era, which culminated with a 2020 presidential campaign that focused largely on a religion-based ideology.
But Drake and ‘Ye have been routinely pitted against each other in the press for years now, perhaps most prominently amid the 6 God’s infamous feud with current GOOD Music president Pusha-T. During that same era, which saw the release of the Ye album, Drake was credited as a writer on West’s track “Yikes.”
Needless to say, fans had plenty to say upon hearing the Kanye mention in “Wants and Needs.”
