Look, I’m going to be honest here, I haven’t listened to all three of these Drake songs all the way through yet, I’m just going to go ahead and post them here first and let the chips fall where they may. It’s like the blog game version of going all in blind on a poker hand. I just got a good feeling about these.
On “6 God” Drake comes hard for most of the skittering Boi-1da and Syk Sense beat, before getting to the singing verses toward the end. “I’m not new to this,” he sings. “My song got the whole city awake right now.” Based on the number of plays they’ve already gotten that’s not that far off.
The 40 produced “Heat of the Moment” is classic Drake loverman mode. Slowed down, contemplative, reminiscing.
“How Bout Now” produced by Boi-1da again, this time with Jordan Evans, is a spiteful kiss-off, and probably the least memorable of the three, without much to speak of going on in the beat and a mostly repetitive lyric.
