Surprise! Drake dropped not one, but two brand new singles titled “One Dance” featuring Wizkid & Kyla and “Pop Style” featuring Jay Z and Kanye West. The newly debuted songs are Drake’s second and third single off his upcoming album Views from The 6.
The singles follows up “Summer Sixteen,” which Drake premiered back in January on his Beats 1 show OVO Sound Radio. Consequently, Drake joins forces with The Throne, the group Jay Z and Kanye West created in 2012 for their Watch The Throne album. Even though Jay Z only contributed a single bar and some ad-libs, it’s still pretty major since Jay Z hasn’t been featured on a song in over a year. Additionally, “One Dance” features Wizkid, who is one of Nigeria’s biggest artists, and follows in the Dancehall footsteps of Drake’s number one single “Work” with Rihanna.

Wiz Khalifa has joined the list of hip-hop artists who have honored the legendary Phife Dawg, who passed away on Tuesday at the age of 45.
