We guess we have to say project, because as much as it looks like an album to us, Drake is more insistent on it just being called a "playlist" of new songs.
It's been a long time coming, at least for those who thought the album would arrive in December.
With the first day of Spring right around the corner, Drake officially released More Life into the digital streets and onto streaming services everywhere.
It features guest appearances from Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, Quavo, Young Thug, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Giggs and Skepta, among others.
More Life references the Toronto native's family, as a photo of the rapper's father adorns the cover of the playlist. Writing for The Ringer, Justin Charity praised More Life as "the biggest, most ambitious, most global Drake album since 2011's Take Care, a grand tour of black music and culture in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, and the U.K". "I love the way it's put together".
Drake gives space to the British singer Sampha on "4422", an R&B ballad of separation that takes as its imagery the United States tax form used to cut off connections to an estate.
However, Lopez isn't entirely absent - Drake raps "I drunk text JLo".
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'.
Well, the 'Aint Your Mama' singer obviously didn't want him anymore because she is now in a relationship with New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez. He even throws a total curveball with a sample of His World, the theme from the Sonic the Hedgehog video game, on the track KMT.
