On Jan. 21, LeBron James took to Twitter to share some lyrics from a new song by Canadian singer Aubrey Drake Graham, 30, who is professionally known as Drake. At the time, fans thought it was just part of the NBA star's response to critics, including Charles Barkley.
Sometimes I gotta just make sure that i didn't lose you. Did I?!?! Did I?!?! Did I Lose You— LeBron James (@KingJames) January 31, 2017
Apparently, the tweet was almost a direct repeat of the chorus from a new Drake song titled "Lose You." This is one of the reasons why James earned the title Subtweet King.
On March 18, Saturday, Drake released a playlist titled "More Life." It was under Republic Records, Cash Money Records and Young Money Entertainment.
"More Life" will not be an Apple Music exclusive. The playlist will be available on Amazon at the same time as the Apple Music release, Pitchfork quoted sources as saying.
Before the release of "More Life," Drake released his short film "Please Forgive Me" exclusively on Apple Music. His studio album titled "Views" was also an Apple Music/iTunes exclusive.
Kanye West, Frank Dunes, Vinylz and 40 were among those who handled the record production of "More Life." A collaboration song with West titled "Glow" is one of the 22 songs in the playlist.
Aside from "Glow," the playlist has seven other collaboration songs. These are "No Long Talk" featuring Giggs, "KMT" featuring Giggs, "Get It Together" featuring Black Coffee and Jorja Smith, "Portland" featuring Quavo and Travis Scott, "Sacrifices" featuring 2 Chainz and Young Thug, "Since Way Back" featuring PartyNextDoor and "Ice Melts" featuring Young Thug.
The lead single of the playlist is titled "Fake Love," which was released on Oct. 29, 2016. Along with "Lose You," the other songs in the playlist are "Free Smoke," "Passionfruit," "Jorja Interlude," "Madiba Riddim," "Blem," "4422," "Nothings Into Somethings," "Teenage Fever," "Can't Have Everything" and "Do Not Disturb."
On March 12, Nicki Minaj joined Drake on stage in Paris to perform the Remy Ma diss track "No Frauds" for the first time, Billboard reported. Meanwhile, here is a video explaining why "More Life" is a playlist and not an album:
