Drake dropped an updated version of “Hype” featuring longtime collaborator Lil Wayne during Saturday’s episode of OVOSOUND Radio. Drake recently also performed the song for the first time on “SNL,” and the track is produced by Boi-1da and Nineteen85.
Additionally, Drake’s Views is staying strong on the Billboard 200 chart, as the album spends a third week at number 1. Views is the first album to spend three consecutive weeks at number one since January, when Adele’s 25 spent 7 weeks at the top of the charts.
Mannie Fresh recently released a new song titled “Hate,” which is a new single with Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and, on the intro and outro, Birdman. This marks Wayne and Birdman’s first reunion on a track together since they reconciled, and were photographed together in Miami.
“One word to describe this track: Bawesome—because I’m a boss and I’m awesome,” said Mannie in a statement. “I’ve put a lot of effort into making this track happen. I’ve always been the liaison between these guys, they took my word and put their trust in me in bringing everyone together for this hot track. You definitely can expect more from this project I’m about to drop with Mass Appeal Records. This is just the foreplay, you can expect the eargasm later.”
Last month, Mannie Fresh announced a joint album with Juvenile and Lil Wayne after releasing pictures with both rappers in the studio together over the holidays. This will be the first time since their days as one half of the Hot Boys that the former Cash Money Records artist and producer Mannie Fresh will be all be working together. A release date for the project has not been released.
We already know O.T. Genasis is in love with the coco, but in this music video we also learn that he has an interest in fitness, or at least in instructing yoga classes of beautiful women. “Do It” is romantic ballad to the female body from O.T. and Lil Wayne, and the video full of fit ladies in the Hollywood hills gets that image across. The track features some beautiful piano and cymbals that make this song more than just another stripper love song. O.T. has a mixtape coming out soon with no set date, so keep your eyes and ears open.
French Montana finally premiered the Kanye produced track “Lose It.” It couldn’t be better timed. Kanye’s sample to open takes us to the smug place that “N*ggas in Paris” did. Rick Rosay’s hook “I think I’m bout to lose it mane/Said I’m bout to go Gucci Mane” is perfectly suited to his recent re-run into the law. The song makes you feel like a badass just listening to it. Peep the track below.
DJ Khaled’s skits belong on an album somewhere. Here we go again with his infamous charming of women that has landed him on the list of social media comeback .gifs (“You smart”). DJ Khaled always has a team roster of features for his singles, and this time he’s recruited Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, and Big Sean. Watch the four upstanding gentlemen get entertained by rainforest strippers in the product placement-filled video below.
So the rumors were true. Drizzy dropped a new project tonight causing the Internet to become a madhouse (à la Beyonce). If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late features Lil Wayne, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Travi$ Scott with production from Austin’s own Eric Dingus, Boi-1da, WondaGurl and others. At the moment, OVO seems to have removed the songs from their SoundCloud account (people on Twitter are pissed), but if you’re a real G you can purchase the project on iTunes.
