For episode 20 of OVO Sound Radio that aired on April 28th, Drake sat down with Beats 1 Radio’s Zane Lowe in Noah “40” Shebib’s studio for a 1-hour interview, which you can listen to after the jump below.
Drizzy spoke on his latest album VIEWS, working with Future, “Jumpman“, the upcoming “Summer Sixteen” tour, recording “Hotline Bling” in London, “Pop Style“, how Kanye West and Jay Z ended up recording a verse for it, working with Rihanna, his family, acting, Skepta, The Weeknd, and more.
Throughout the conversation, Drizzy Drake also revealed he has more songs that didn’t make VIEWS which he will release this summer, not speaking to Nicki Minaj that much anymore, the current beef between Lil Wayne and Birdman, praying that the Young Money vs. Cash Moneysituation gets worked out and resolved, as well as saying it’s been tough to see!
VEVO have announced that Nicki Minaj‘s “The Night Is Still Young” music video is now “VEVO Certified”. This means that the visual has been watched over 100 million times since it first premiered less than a year ago in May, 2015.
Other videos from Nicki as a lead artist that have also been “VEVO Certified” are: “Stupid Hoe“, “Fly“, “High School“, “Only“, “The Boys“, “Pills N Potions“, “Anaconda“, “Right By My Side“, “Pound The Alarm“, “Beez In The Trap“, “Starships“, “Moment 4 Life“, and “Super Bass“.
Congratulations to the Young Money Barbie and the director Hannah Lux Davis on this awesome achievement!
