Borrowing from afrobeat, dancehall, grime and modern R&B, Drake is doing "big man tings" on this project. As he explained in his OVO radio interview not long ago, the 6 God doesn't feel the need to constrain his music within the limits of current streams of rap. And it shows on More Life.
He puts his evolving vocal chops on display more than once, notably on "Get It Together" and "Passionfruit." And he still spits with the best of them on standouts like "Portland" and "Sacrifices."
Nevertheless, this project marks his growing willingness to explore more poppy African and Caribbean sounds, and introduce them to Western audiences.
