2020 has already proved to be a big year for Drake as the famed rapper released two tracks in January with Future. Following up his music crusade, this weekend saw the Canadian rapper surprise fans with more music in a fresh video. Last month, Drake was seen filming a mysterious video at Brooklyn’s Marcy Projects as well as in Manhattan’s Diamond district and Drake’s hometown of Toronto which has since proved to include singles, ‘When To Say When’ and ‘Chicago Freestyle’.
The first track makes references the mother of his son, Adonis, who was only made known to the public by Pusha T in 2018 and says, “Baby mama fluke, but I love her for who she is,” along with the usual bragging about his success and suffering (“Five hundred weeks, I fill the charts with my pain”). The second track and what makes up the “Chicago” aspect of the music video explores touring life and the struggles of connecting with his girlfriends in the city. “What numbers do I still have? / Who do I know from the past? / Hit one, she say she got a man / Hit another one, it goes green / Must’ve changed phones on the team / ‘Member when you lead me in between?”, he says.
As for an album, rumours suggest a new studio instalment later in 2020. Stay tuned. In the meantime, watch the music visual in question, below.
