Yesterday, with no context or forewarning, Drake shared a shit-talk-happy new song called “Draft Day.” And very late last night, he gave us another song, one that shows a different side of him. He’d already performed “Days In The East,” his new one, live, but the studio version of the new Drake song is obviously the one you want. This one is a six-minute relationship song without a lot of rapping and with a murmuring, glassy beat from Drake’s recent R&B protege PARTYNEXTDOOR. (Drake’s in-house musical genius Noah “40” Shebib also worked on it.) It’s pretty in the way that only Tortured Drake can be, and you can hear it below.
If Drake decides to keep doing these every night, I will be fundamentally OK with that.
