As More Life also went No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, this is now Drizzy‘s seventh No. 1 album of his career, which makes him tied with Eminem and Kanye West for the second most No. 1 projects in hip-hop. Jay Z is in the lead with a total of 13.
At the weekend, Drake released his More Life playlist digitally. However, if you wanted to purchase a physical copy of the album, you will now be able to do so at the end of this month.
According to HHNM, Drizzy‘s latest project will drop in physical form on March 31st. It is also already available for pre-order on stores such as Amazon and Target for around $14.
The next singles that the 6 God has chosen to release from More Life are “Free Smoke” and “Passionfruit“.

Bryson Tiller took to his Twitter page late last night to reveal him and Drake have been working in the studio on new music.
“started some vibes with Drake today. more life”
The collaboration(s) could possibly appear on Drizzy‘s upcoming More Life project, which will now be released in early 2017, after Bryson mentioned “more life” in his tweet.
Tiller could also end up getting a 6 God feature on the follow-up to his 2015 album, Trapsoul, due to also be released soon!
During yesterday’s episode of Beats 1 Radio’s OVO Sound Radio show, Drake‘s manager Oliver El-Khatib announced that More Life will now be dropping in early 2017 instead of at the end of this year like it was originally supposed to.
“More Life is coming at the top of 2017.”
Oliver didn’t share an explanation as to why the project was pushed back, but he did say: “stay tuned for some more updates”, so maybe we will find out soon!
The 6 God has already dropped 3 songs from More Life, which are “Sneakin’” featuring 21 Savage, “Two Birds One Stone“, and “Fake Love“.
Four months after being certified triple Platinum, the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) have confirmed Drake‘s VIEWS album has now gone quadruple Platinum!
According to the RIAA, VIEWS surpassed 4 million sales on December 1st after it was first released on May 6th (digitally it was April 29th).
Congratulations to the 6 God on this amazing accomplishment. I wonder if Drizzy‘s upcoming More Life project be as successful as VIEWS when he drops it sometime this month?
