Nineteen85 Explains Why Drake Is Calling More Life A Playlist & Discusses The Hits He Has Produced

In the January 14th issue of Billboard magazine, producer and one-half of OVO Sound’s dvsn duo, Nineteen85, spoke on Drake‘s forthcoming More Life project and some of the songs that he has worked with him on.

Nineteen85 explained why Drizzy Drake is calling More Life a “playlist” rather than an “album”, as well as discussed the “Too Much“, “Hotline Bling” and “One Dance” tracks he produced for Drizzy.

You can read what the producer had to say after the jump below!

More Life:
“More Life is interesting because this is [Drake] right on the peak of his biggest project yet [with Views], doing his biggest tour and still having so many good ideas that he just wants to put out without making it a big ordeal. That’s why he’s trying to call it a playlist because he has a bunch of people in a space, hanging out… He’s so aware of what everybody else is doing musically that he likes to introduce new music and new artists to the rest of the world.”

“Too Much” featuring Sampha:
“There’s an honesty in the way Drake raps on it that we don’t often hear from him – he’s touching on personal topics, like family. The beat [which features a hook from Sampha] works with what he’s saying. It’s one of the songs that’s not as fun, that brings different emotions to the music.”

“Hotline Bling”:
“I was in my car, listening to a satellite station that plays a lot of smooth-rock deep cuts, and the original song [“Why Can’t We Live Together,” by Timmy Thomas] came on. By the time I got home, I had basically made the beat in my head. There’s a thing he knows how to do on my beats that connects with the audience so well.”

“One Dance” featuring Wizkid and Kyla:
“We were in London a couple of years ago for Wireless Festival, and we kept playing ‘Do You Mind?’ by Kyla, which I sampled on ‘One Dance.’ I wanted to figure out how to create that I-don’t-care-who’s-looking vibe, the vibe of those parties. ‘One Dance’ makes you feel not embarrassed to dance, no matter who you’re in front of. There’s a void when it comes to that type of feel-good record nowadays the songs that the Michael Jacksons of the world used to make. Drake always knows how to make people feel.”
