After several false starts, Drake's long-awaited More Life album is here.

As promised, Drake unveiled his new "playlist project " More Life on his OVO Radio on Saturday. The point is proved further with the release of his highly anticipated playlist (which sounds more like a proper album), More Life.

He seamlessly pivots from catchy afrobeats to house vibes and still leaves room for appearances by major rap stars such as Kanye West, Travis Scott and 2 Chainz.

His continuing J-Lo thirst is also evident on 'Teenage Fever', on which he sings a classic Drake sad boy interpretation on her '90s hit 'If You Had My Love'. Earlier in his career, his OVO blogspot page offered up between-album tracks that hinted at potential new musical directions. I just want to get right back to it. Tracks frequently flow one into the next, and across 80 minutes, "More Life" smoothly ebbs and flows from thumping trap to a laid-back variation of Drake's signature dancehall style (best expressed on the sequential "Get It Together and "Madiba Riddim")".

While Drake dishes on his fling with Jennifer Lopez in More Life, take a look at his wild romantic timeline between him and Rihanna in the video below. A nice sentiment, but fans know their pied piper won't wait on nature's clock if he has more to say. Drake's lead track "Fake Love" ("That's when they smile in my face / Whole time they wanna take my place") was released via digital download on October 29. You might hear some tunes from the family (frequent collaborators) on there, but I'm just really excited...

That permanent chip on his shoulder made Views tough to sit through, but on More Life, Drake at least tries to shake off some of the bitterness plaguing him... with help from his mom and the former FLOTUS.

And Drake might even be taking a shot at Birdman when he raps, "I mean, I keep the fucking lights on in the building / Man, my record deal should be 500 million" on "Can't Have Everything".
